This is really humiliating, because money has been a consistent severe issue for me for the past couple years, and I am so sorry for asking for help, but I need to.

So my car was towed without warning and put in impound for the second time since moving here as I have had so much financial difficulty that paying rent and bills is so tough that I can’t even save up to fix my expired license plates.

I need to get my car out as soon as possible and I don’t really know what else to do, I 100% absolutely do not feel safe contacting my family about this. I am terrified of what may happen if they find out my car is gone and I’m very desperate. It’s $240 today and goes up $21 a day. If at all possible if anyone could give a small donation (even 1$ helps) to my Paypal (sarah@sarahmilesillustration.com) I will only accept up to approx $300 dollars as that should cover the time that Paypal will clear the charges to my bank before the weekend. Thanks so much. If you cannot donate please reblog if you can.

I’m so, so sorry I have to post this.

My name is Rio, and I recently lost my job. After my dad passed away my anxiety and depression negatively impacted my work performance to the point where I was let go. Their reasoning for letting me go was that as I had broken a mirror (by accident at that), I had damaged company property, and after being suspended for 72 hours I was terminated.

I originally signed a promissory note to pay back the cost of the mirror ($75). Today I received a letter with a demand to pay an additional $300 for the cost of their ‘investigation’ (because according to them that’s how much it costs to review security footage of a mirror being knocked over). I called their lawyers along with corporate, and neither are willing to waive the fee.

I have no idea how to come up with the money for this. I barely have next month’s rent (which is over $400) in my bank account (and that’s not including utilities), and once that’s gone I won’t be able to live at my apartment. In turn, the rent will hike for my room mates and they’ll have to leave too.

The only place I have left to go is back to my grandmother’s house, and she’s verbally abusive. My mom and brother live there too, and they’re addicts on top of being abusive themselves. Unsurprisingly, none of them accept my identity.

If anyone could give so little as $5, or even just reblog this post, I would be appreciative beyond words.

For those that are able to help, my paypal is ernymann@gmail.com

Hey everyone, I don’t usually use this blog to boost posts, but Rio is the most hardworking person I’ve ever met in my life. They don’t deserve an ounce of negative karma whatsoever, and it breaks my freaking heart that their workplace treated them so unfairly during a period of incredible stress and grief. I’m no longer living with Rio, and my moving out of state definitely didn’t help the financial situation, so if anyone has it in their hearts to help or throw out some friendly vibes, that’d be appreciated more than you know.

Monsoon triggers landslides and floods in India and Pakistan

Landslides and flash floods triggered by heavy monsoon rains have killed nearly 300 people in large swaths of northern India and Pakistan, officials said Sunday.

Five days of incessant rains in Indian-controlled Kashmir have left at least 120 people dead in the region’s worst flooding in more than five decades, submerging hundreds of villages and triggering landslides, officials said. In neighboring Pakistan, more than 160 people have died and thousands of homes have collapsed, with an official saying the situation was becoming a “national emergency.”

Rescuers in both countries were using helicopters and boats to try to reach tens of thousands of people stranded in their homes as floodwaters rose and submerged many villages. (AP)

This is a hard post to make, both due to how I am feeling and how difficult it is to ask for help (and to feel safe or safe-ish doing so), but, in short, my partner and I need help and need it fast.

He has been…

Hope people can help these lovely folks from our own community…

I have Keratoconus which is a genetic condition that causes the cornea to turn cone shaped. It makes it hard to see, because bright lights form halo effects, obscuring the vision, and making it difficult to read, and in my case, draw. The day before my birthday, I went to a specialist, who gave me three options; Cross linking eye surgery, (which is still considered experimental in the United States, and not covered by insurance) Intact lenses (also not covered by insurance) or complete cornea transplants (Which is covered by insurance, but much riskier than the other two listed). 

Although there is some hope, since the Intacts is currently going through trial runs and studies for it to be approved by most insurances, I will learn by october, if I will be an acceptible participant for the study, and receive the intacts at either a reduced price, or not pay at all.

But, worse case scenerio, I will have to pay $5000-9000 per eye.

I cannot afford that, on my walmart salary. My family is barely skating by with what we have, and we still struggle every month to make ends meet. There is absolutely no way we would be able to pay for this surgery.

And, that really scares me. 

As an artist, and a writer, I depend so much on my eyes. Keratoconus is not curable, and will only worsten, if they go untreated. I NEED this surgery, but I can’t pay for it, with the few hundred bucks I get from putting up with walmart customers.

So, I turn to you, Tumblr. This is very hard for me to do, since I was raised to believe that if someone can work for their money, they very well should, and reserve the free help to the people who truly cannot help themselves. But, if you feel like you can, and want to donate, please feel free to send that money to my Paypal, at maryzolgarcia90@yahoo.com

If you want to help in another way, please spread my Commissioning Info or feel free to commission a piece of artwork from me directly by sending me an ask here, note me at my Dev.artor Email me your information at the same Email stated for my Paypal.

Simply re-blogging this really helps as well.

Thank you for taking your time for reading this out.

Alright, guys. I don’t post much about my personal life on here and I certainly never ask much of anyone, but I’ve run into a problem I simply can’t handle alone. I adopted a kitten a little over two years ago and named her Auryn (the medallion from The Never Ending Story). I brought her with me when I lived out in Norton, VA with my sister Lizz / imsosrsly and once there (and once she was old enough) I got her shots and de-wormed her and all the wonderful things that go along with raising a beautiful baby kitty. 

She was strictly inside and spooked easily, but she was also brave and super cuddly. I have terrible anxiety and was having an extremely stressful time at Norton, but when she was there with me, I always felt better. She even enjoyed watching me play Minecraft while laying in my lap. We’ve moved again and brought her along with us to this new house.

A couple days ago, while most likely trying to catch bugs on the porch, we think she fell. We found her with a messed up leg. We googled a lot of possibilities as to what was wrong, but obviously you never know until you take them to the vet. I spent a good part of last night messaging friends on Facebook to help me take her to the vet this morning (thank you to all of you who were supportive and sweet) and I did get a ride from my wonderful mother.

And here’s the bad news: her back right leg is completely broken and described by the vet as “shattered” and “the worst he’s seen” there at the Animal Hospital. I am honestly devastated because she’s been through so much with us and has really become a part of our family. 

Even worse news: we don’t have the money to pay for her surgery. Mom is currently working and so is Lizz and I’m trying my hardest to get mine and Courtney’s shop open, but it isn’t enough on top of being behind on bills and gas and just having gotten back from Dragoncon and everything else. The surgery the vet wanted us to get, from a surgeon in Blacksburg, would run about $2,000 to $4,000, which is out of the question for us. However, they will operate on her at the Hospital for $400. This is on top of the $200 that we had to spend on her visit today. We simply don’t have the money, but I can’t stand the thought of her not healing or getting the treatment she needs.

The deadline for her surgery is the end of next week on Thursday, September 18th. So I’m asking that if any of you are better off than we are, please donate for her. Even if it’s just a little, that helps more than you know. I’d like to set a goal for us of about $700-$800, just to cover the surgery and future meds and visits. But just raising the $400 would be a blessing. Thank you all so much for taking the time to read this and possibly donating or even just reblogging this post!

Please make your donations to Lizz’s paypal account, since I don’t have one: Lizzeh_mo@yahoo.com

Hey guys so we NEVER reblog stuff like this onto our cosplay tumblr, but anyone who’s followed us for a while knows how important cats are to us!!  Shan and Lizz are our friends and great cosplayers and GREAT PEOPLE and they need help to get their baby the help she needs.  Please, please, think about donating or signal boosting or anything.

My family’s financial situation has gotten even worse in the past 24 hours. On his way to work this morning, my dad hit a deer and took out our only functional vehicle. We have been sharing one car between four people (and two of us have 30+ mile commutes to work so you can imagine how well this is working out), but without this car we have no way to get to work now and my father and I are both in very real danger of losing our jobs.

PLEASE, I am begging. If you can help at all—even a dollar or two—please help us. If you, like me, do not even have a spare dollar right now, please reblog or repost the link to this fundraiser.

Sandra Lucía Salguero’s husband was deported 5 days after their baby was born! Sandra, a community member from South Philadelphia, needs our support. She gave birth to a beautiful baby named Christopher on August 11th, 2014. Since her husband’s deportation, Sandra lost emotional and economic stability and does not have family in the U.S. that can support her. Sandra has been forced to live in a basement with her baby and is unable to work for three months due to the cesarean section she went through.

Will you help a baby and a loving mother in need by donating?

Sandra is not making enough milk for her baby because she is suffering from stress and depression. In Philadelphia, it is mandatory that mothers breastfeed their babies for at least the first month before filing an application to obtain free formula. But just buying formula and other necessities for her baby, like clothes and diapers, is out of her budget.

“All I’m asking for is help so I can survive these three months. As soon as I can work, I will get up on my feet and work hard for me and my baby. Thank you so much” – Sandra. 

Please consider donating to help Sandra and her baby Christopher, every little bit will help!  No human being should go through such deplorable conditions, especially a newborn baby.

Once upon a time, in 2003, there was a young woman named Teffy. That’s her on the left. We met her because of Gravitation and cosplay and Otakon, but that’s not the important bit. The important part is the past tense.
Teffy died this week. Her body is in Japan, where she was living her dreams, but her family is in El Salvador. They can’t afford to bring her home. It’s hard enough imagining her dead - Teffy was so vibrant and joyous! Look at that grin! But to be unable to bring her home while grieving? That’s fucking awful.
Her family is accepting donations to bring her home. As someone who knew her, and as someone whose sister was even closer to her, I hope that you can help. Signal boosting is welcome! This is important, and more people should know that Teffy was an amazing woman who made the world brighter for being in it.
