IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ.

Wishadoo! members and Wishlist & Fundraising requests are not screened nor pre-approved, and thus Wishadoo! does not accept any responsibility for the contents or veracity of requests made via Wishadoo.

Members are asked to enter with an open mind and open heart, and to act with respect. Specifically concerning the Wishlist & Fundraising tools, interactions regarding requests and offerings are private, with members connecting one on one. If you are considering responding to a post, yet have questions and requirements of the poster in order to have more peace of mind about giving (or receiving), that is your right. All parties must assume personal responsibility and work within their own boundaries.

Please remember that the simple act of acknowledging someone's post can be a priceless act of kindness. If the request is monetary yet you cannot or choose not to help in that way, perhaps you have a resource suggestion, advice to share, or you can simply lend moral support by acknowledging the courage it took to ask out loud.

If anyone experiences any unpleasant interactions which are counter to Wishadoo!'s guidelines and terms, please notify us immediately. If any member posts a request that is deceptive, untrue or illegal in any way, they will be banned immediately and, if applicable, legal action will be taken.

By agreeing to the Terms of Service, you acknowledge that content/comments/messages contained here shall constitute medical, financial, investment, legal and/or other professional advice and that no professional relationship of any kind is created in the interactions.
