Thank you for the donation, but think of it as a tip, not a requirement. Isn't it neat that the owners of this site don't insist on dollars to get help?
It is possible to have a defective neutral safety switch, but it's more likely the shifter linkage is slightly misadjusted and not allowing the lever in the transmission to go quite far enough in park to trip the switch. The fastest way to check is to pop the linkage apart at the transmission, put the shifter in park, move the lever on the transmission to park, then try to put the linkage back together. The link should line up nicely with the hole in the lever. If they are off, look for the adjustment and tweak it a little as necessary. By the way, as long as you have the lever on the transmission in park, try the starter to be sure it works. If it doesn't, the switch is bad, (that would be weird), or it isn't screwed in all the way.
