Appeal for Help

Dear Chess Friends,

  I am writing to ask you help. The father of one of Bulgarian's most promising female players Elitza Raeva (picture) needs an urgent life-saving operation abroad. the sum requested for the operation is 30 000 euro, and needs to be collected before the end of the month. We our trying our best to help, but Bulgaria is a small country, and the appeal arrived late. Therefore, I am writing here, on the largest chess site, with the biggest chess mass:

    There is no need to collect all the money, the family has found some of it, and some friends have helped already, too. Whatever we can raise is welcomed though. As for the paypal, David and Danny are thinking of a way to create an event to raise funds, and in that case you can use the chess.com account- this would be simpler, and safer for all who are afraid of fraud.

      Thanks again for your understandng!

    IM Dupress: I suggest you are speaking without knowledge of medical facts.

    $30,000 Euros? What is the operation/procedure?

    I have sent family members to Ukraine (from the US) for expensive procedures because it is far cheaper than in the US, and I because I am not too pleased with getting treated by nurses for 90% of the care, only to see the doctor for a measly 5 minutes -- if you are American, you know what I am talking about...a very sad state of affairs is US medicine.
    Go to a  large city in Ukraine,  and can get first rate care, from the doctor, and not a nurse, at a bargain price. It helps if you know people and can ask around who the best doctor is...but that should not be an unsurmountable problem. (If they figure out you are American, you will get charged a little more -- Bulgarians would not have this problem)

    Anyway, I have never heard of anything close to $30,000 Euros in Ukraine, and while I do not know the market in Bulgaria, it sounds very high....So I ask, what is the procedure?

    Many Bulgarians have knowledge of Russian. Same thing in Ukraine -- Russian is very common. Medical tourism is a strong idea, and if you are a chess player, you get the bonus of visiting a chess country...

    Last October there was a similar attempt to raise money for WGM Galina Shliahtich. http://blog.chess.com/LuckyTiger/ukrainian-wgm-needs-your-help

    A high barrier to fund raising there was not having some way of collecting the money via PayPal (which is far easier than wire transfers here in the U.S.).  I remember spending two hours trying to get activated on a Webmoney or other international fund transfer account and failed.

    I donated some money and participated in a Simul on ICC by two GMs; and I think they raised maybe $150 plus another $500 in straight up donations. 30,000 Euros ($40,000 U.S.) is pretty ambitious.  I wonder if Bulgarian Red Cross can help (redcross.bg)?

    err... let me insist: the article should be edited and the assurances presented only on the comments section should be added.  Actually I was about to quickly disregard the appeal...too much scam on net...

    let's help

    I think that is a great idea... David and I will brainstorm.

    "and let's think of something David and Danny!"

     

    How about a raffle idea. I am sure many players would pay 10 dollars each for a chance to win a one hour online session with an IM/GM. Or to pay 15 dollars for a chance to win a one year membership diamond. You could also give away signed books and even some chess boards. The ideas for that seem limitless. Or you could just organize a quick rematch in the vs the world tournament. I remember someone saying in the comments on chess.com/tv feed that it would be a cool idea to get people to pay a little bit like a dollar for each move they contribute. The ones who participate could get a trophy for their profile. Something like "played as the world against David and Danny". Just a few things that come to mind

    Sure, this is a great idea, I was also thinking about it. You can also use me, David, and Danny. The only flaw is that we do not have much time to be on time (the end of the month). In any case, the idea is great, as even after the operation the family would still be in need of funds. Thanks, chessfa1, and let's think of something David and Danny!

    Might I reccomend a chairty event on chess.com to raise money. Something like david and danny vs the world, in which all proceeds are given to Elitza. I find that fundrasiers like that would get more responses, and make people less skeptical about it being a scam.

    Danny, David, all chess.com members and readers, thank you for your help and support. Like David advised, I would like to stress on the fact that I know Elitza since she was very young, as well as her father and mother (both of them professors in an University), as well as her brother who is also a chess player, national master.

    The family is indeed in trouble, and any help is highly appreciated!

      Thank you again for your understanding!

    Certainly this is not a scam. Obviously if anyone has ever had a friend or family member affected by cancer, then they know how hard this is to deal with and that it can sometimes sneak up on someone overnight (like this one seemingly did).

    Asking for the help of a stranger is a hard thing to do, but if anyone has the means to do so, what a miracle it would be.

    My best wishes to Elitza and her family.

    here's the link to Dejan's work: http://www.chess.com/video/library.html?keyword=&author=dbojkov&players=&opening=&skill_level=&category=

    as content manager for chess.com i can assure you that Dejan has been doing videos, articles, chess mentor, and more for chess.com for over a year.

    the problem with the link he provided was that the comma at the end was included in the url!

    I went to the video site but there is nothing there.

    Dejan, i think to let people know it's not a scam, you should just tell us if you personally know Elitza or her father, so people can know that your knowledge of the situation is first-hand. everyone on chess.com should know and trust you from your long relationship with the site.

    Hello, and thank you for your question. It is indeed a serious one. The only thing that I can think of at the moment is my participation on the lectures for chess.com- http://www.chess.com/video/library.html?author=dbojkov , and the articles that I write. I believe that I am no stranger at this site.

     I can also give you a link from the appeal at the site of the Bulgarian chess Federation, but I am afraid that it is in Bulgarian: http://chessbg.com/news/open/id/788

     I hope that this makes sense.

     Thank you for your comment, and thank you if you wish to help.

     Best regards

              Soory, but  how do we know this is real?

    I get three or four spam e-mails every day and all are scams. Now on chess.com?

                    What is the life saving operation?
