Letter of recommendation is what I've given previous employees for their files.  A reference is what the employee provided for me to follow up on to get an estimate of their work/personality etc. or just to verify previous employment. 


I think of a letter of recommendation as something for the files, yes. Print out a dozen originals and sign them, use as needed, plus a PDF these days. So Enzo's question is right: that's a Letter of Recommendation.

I think of a reference as the employee saying to an employer or someone else who will vouch for them, "can I put you down as a reference?" Priests, volunteer group leaders, young people might include teachers or professors. On a standard generic employment app, it often specifies that "references" cannot be the same as "job history" so...

2 Strangers, A 6-Page List And A Plan Hatched To Help Puerto Rico

José Ortíz and Ethan Leder had never met, but they quickly came up with an unconventional plan to help Puerto Rico.

Ortíz and Leder's personalities are similar: both are high energy, do-er types. "It's all about doing stuff" says Leder. "Not just talk," adds Ortíz.

When Hurricane Maria hit, Ortíz, a 47-year-old flooring business owner, says his "brain was completely obsessed with it." He was born in Mayagüez, Puerto Rico and was 11 when his family moved to the Washington, D.C. area. "I was just trying to get in touch with anyone in Puerto Rico to offer help."

Leder, meanwhile, has no connection to the island. But he followed the news of the hurricane, especially that "there was and there is a massive shortage of supplies and medicines" and a logjam on supplies in general. Leder is a health care business entrepreneur in Bethesda, Maryland; he's the founder and CEO of "Precision for Medicine Group," a company that develops targeted medicines. He describes himself as pragmatic.

Together, Ortíz and Leder — without the help of any major agency or aid organization — managed to charter a plane to the island filled with donated medical supplies and get people with acute medical needs out of the island for treatment in the continental U.S.

One of Ortíz's assignments was to make contact with a city in need of hospital supplies. He focused on the western part of the island where he was born.

"I know that the west part of the island was not being taken care of" he says, "that was my mission."

Ortíz worked his phone and was able to reach Wilbert Ruíz, the assistant mayor of the nearby city of Aguada. The message was left on the city's 911 for emergency services. Ruíz says, "I couldn't believe it. José said they could deliver any medical supplies we needed." Ruíz wrote a six-page wish list, took a picture of it with his mobile phone and texted it to Ortíz.

So instead of flying to San Juan, they landed in Aguadilla, on the western side of the island and the second largest international airport in Puerto Rico.

Wilbert Ruíz took care of the logistics at his end and waited for the flight on the tarmac. "Ethan and José's arrival felt like a movie," says Ruíz. Flights in and out of the island are still limited due to sheer mess left by hurricane Maria.

The storm destroyed the local hospital in Aguada and the city set up a makeshift clinic in the church. "We have doctors working long hours with no pay, but for more than 10 days we didn't have medical supplies," says Ruíz, until Leder and Ortíz arrived. "It was like being in a battlefield without guns."

"We are seeing between 50 and 75 patients a day" says Ruíz. Conditions include skin infection, diabetic-related issues, mental health, dehydration and stomach poisoning, but doctors are also stitching wounds.

"Doctors are working hard to treat our patients here and to keep them out of hospitals," he says. Hospitals are overcrowded and lack air conditioning and patients' conditions can often worsen in those circumstances, Ruíz says.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has delivered food and water to Aguada, but medical assistance has not reached the area, except for civilian help from the mainland, says Ruíz.

"I'm astounded by all the help" says Ruíz, "Ethan and José have a big heart. I don't know what we'd have done without them" and others on the mainland who have sent help too, he says.

I would call PayPal's tech support pronto. I just googled "PayPal's tech support number" and got a number of hits. You can call as a guest if you're locked out of your account. Or you can email them.
