    Helping hands

    When Natalina Gonzalez heard about the plight of a Fremont mother with a young daughter fighting serious heart and respiratory problems, she wanted to do more than give money.

    So Gonzalez is creating a network of people to help Tamarah Molina, whose 2-year-old daughter, Julieanna, has been in and out of hospitals with serious health problems since birth.

    Gonzalez is looking for people willing to donate not only cash, but a box of diapers from Costco, a Trader Joe's gift card, a computer and home-cooked meals. The Molina family includes husband Fred and four young boys.

    "Sometimes money is not enough," said Gonzalez, 38, a San Jose resident and Hewlett Packard sales executive. "Sure, money is great, but if I write a check, that's so one-dimensional. Time and talent matter, too."

    The unusual campaign to create the support network began at Bridges Community Church in Fremont, where Gonzalez's longtime friend Andrea Tomassi attends. Molina goes there, too. One Sunday this summer, after a Fremont Argus story earlier in the year, the pastor called Molina out of the pews. And that's how the story began to spread.

    Inspired, Gonzalez and Tomassi, who owns a Santa Clara towing company, thought they'd harness the power of the Internet to organize a broad-based assistance program, hoping to draw out fellow Christians - and others, too. They created a Web site at helpjulieanna.ning.com to organize volunteers.
