Help needed from USA to buy a book. - CLOSED
« on: March 23, 2010, 11:46:35 PM »
A plea for help...
One of my ex-students (a migrant, no family support) is doing 1st year uni and needs a java text book
(Big Java, 3rd edition by Horstmann).
Cheapest in australia (new) is $137
I see I can get a near new copy from an amazon seller for about $US17, plus postage, which shud come to a LOT less than $137.
BUT the seller only ships to the USA.
Is there a kind DC member from the USA who would be prepared to take delivery of the book if I buy it, then re-ship to australia, after I'd "paypalled" them shipping costs?
Please PM me if anyone would.
Thanks,
Tony

I could do that. Just give me the Amazon URL, I'll order it and ship it the same day I receive it. PM forthcoming.

If, for whatever reason, it doesn't work out with Zaine, I'd be glad to help as well.

If it's been taken care of, might I suggest changing the subject in the original post to reflect that or closing the topic so those of us who have not yet seen this thread will know that our help is no longer needed?

Thanks Deozaan! It's ordered and as soon as it arrives, it will be shipped out to Australia. Glad to help a fellow DC'er!  :)

Sorry for the delay in closing this thread - I had a major personal disaster last night.
Thank you so much to all the generous people who offered help.
That really is the spirit of Donationcoders to me and I see it time and time again.
At a really low point in my life, it's meant even more.
