My dearest online friend is in need

robotsquid:

Hello Tumblr!

Many of you are aware of my deep friendship with snazziercookies, who I met on Tumblr about 3 years ago and with whom I have an amazing relationship.  They are an extremely loving, talented, energetic, beautiful person who has given so much to fandom and their other friends and family.

Snazzy’s debt is starting to pile up.  Court orders are coming in, and although they managed to land an awesome job a few months ago, money can only be made so quickly.  Some of you may know that Snazzy also suffers from anxiety and panic attacks, and the stress takes a huge toll on their well-being.  However, Snazzy being the responsible person they are, they intend to pay back everything even at the expense of their own health.

I want to help Snazzy pay back their debt in any way I can.  But I don’t have a lot of money, and that’s why I’ve decided to ask you all for help.

Anything that you can donate to help Snazzy would mean the world to me.  I can’t draw or anything but I do write, and I’d be happy to write anything at all in exchange.

If anybody can donate anything at all, it would mean the world to both me and Snazzy.  You can donate to my paypal using the email address sylphofblood(at)gmail.com.

THANK YOU GUYS!!! <3333

I really don’t want to do this but I feel like I have no choice

kinomatika:

I’ve been panicking about making this post for a while now and I’m so overwhelmed and terrified and I can’t think of anything else to do right now so I guess I’ll do it.

There’s a pretty good chance that I might end up homeless soon.

The long and short of it is that my husband and I have been having some pretty terrible marital issues for the past year or so and It’s been getting progressively worse. I’ve been doing my best to salvage what I can and be encouraging when he needs encouraging and staying out of his way when he wants to be left alone, but what it all comes down to is that I’ve spent the last few years being severely emotionally abused and hurt and now I’m being thrown out.

It’s gotten to the point where my husband has been threatening to throw me out. 

I don’t have anything of my own. I have a computer, a few electronics, some at supplies, my clothes, and the money in my paypal (which isn’t much) and I’m absolutely terrified. 

I can’t go back to living with my parents because (as some of you know) my mother is extremely mentally unstable and my father is emotionally and physically and verbally abusive. 

My friends have offered a temporary stay but I have an overwhelming feeling of guilt & that I am burdensome (even though they have reassured me that I’m not - this is just my own personal fear and confusion talking) and so I really do not want to push myself onto them.

I cannot afford a place of my own and I am not in a place where I can shack up with strangers who I don’t know or trust, and I’m feeling very horrible and scared and empty and confused and lonely and unloved right now. I even feel sick writing this because I feel as though I am at my lowest low and I do not deserve to even be making a post like this, but I am really at my wits end and ive been crying for a few hours now and I’ve thrown up twice due to stress and I’m just… really fucked up.

This is the second abusive relationship I’ve suffered through in my life and I’m feeling pretty broken and terrified and helpless and worthless.

I know that this is a huge thing to ask of the general public, but if I could get a little money together, I might be able to take care of myself for a while, and maybe, just maybe figure something out where I won’t have to give up everything I’ve worked so hard for and give up friendships I’ve made through these past years to go back to living with my incredibly abusive parents.

If you feel like you want to donate anything… even a penny, even like fifty cents, my paypal is:

nerosfishbowl@gmail.com

If I can maybe scrounge together a little nest egg, I might be able to keep myself safe. I might be able to like… hopefully not self destruct. IDK how else to explain it. I’m just lost. I’m scared and lost and really, really really messed up.

I don’t know how much longer I have in this house, but… yknow. I’ll keep you updated.

Again I’m sorry for even posting this, I know it’s ridiculous and farfetched but I feel like it’s my last resort and I’m just… really scared.

Alright guys listen up!

novacaineexe:

The Newton County animal shelter in Indiana is going to be shut down.

Why is this such a big deal? Because It’s a no kill shelter.

Newton County does not want to fund a no kill shelter anymore.

The dogs in there have until August 1st, until they are killed.

So people need to adopt them, or help fund it, and get it to $3000.

GUYS I JUST FOUND FIVE VERY DEHYDRATED FERAL KITTENS
I’ve already called around and none of the local rescues have any space. None of the vets will take them as surrenders. The shelter here euthanizes all kittens under four weeks old regardless of health; these guys are about three weeks old. They’re also sick (goopy eyes and nasal discharge), and I have exactly $17 to my name (which will buy one can of powdered formula, which will probably last about a week).
If you’re in the Modesto area of California or would be willing to make a drive and can foster kittens that need around-the-clock care, please get in contact with me. I can’t keep these kittens (I’m renting), and they also can’t go back outside. Their mom had them up on top of a plywood, metal, and glass mini-greenhouse, where they were baking to death - it’s going to be in the mid-nineties or higher all next week. One of them also nearly fell from six feet up, which would have been fatal (his crying was how I found them - he got stuck between the back of the greenhouse and the wall and was dangling).
If you can’t take them but want to help, you can also donate, which will buy formula and medicine while I continue to look for an appropriate foster situation, or signal boost this post.
For questions, send me an ask.
Donations can be sent to thefirstkira@gmail.com (please note that this is not my primary email address, and therefor not a good way to contact me).
I have no idea what I’m going to do if I can’t find a foster home for these kittens, but I’m hoping that if I can buy some time I’ll be able to find a rescue or an individual foster situation.

littleninarescue:

This is Little Nina.  We found her on the side of the road in Cleveland Ohio, covered in mud and getting splashed by cars. I picked her up with intentions of nursing her back to health. The vet was kind enough to give me a free exam, which was enough to tell me that she has a severe upper respiratory infection and extreme malnutrition. Her eyes were glued shit with yellow gunk when I found her. And the vet told me that she thought she was about 5 weeks old, but was the size of a 3 week old kitten.
We already have two cats, both of which are rescues. We have plans on keeping her, but this was such a surprise for us, we didn’t have time to budget in another cat. I was able to get a sample sized tube of antibiotics for her eyes, but she is going to need more very soon. And eventually she will need to be spayed.
I don’t want to have to give her up because we can’t afford to keep her. Nina has a gofundme account set up for her vet bills. Please send what ever you can afford. She would greatly appreciate the chance to survive and stay in a nice warm home.
http://www.gofundme.com/bh8z7c
I don’t have much to offer for rewards, but this blog will follow Nina’s journey as she grows into a healthy cat! If you leave your address with a donation, we will send you a picture of her (when she is plump and healthy!) and a thank you letter.
Nina thanks you for taking the time to read this post! And may karma bring the best of luck your way!

desperately selling stuff I love
didn’t think it would happen, but things have gotten worse
after an appointment thing, I returned to my car and a tire was flattened
so a garage was called, and a guy came out to help- in the process of removing my tire, he snapped off two of the studs
then he left and didn’t take any responsibility for it&#160;?? and I called my insurance place and got towed to a garage, where I paid $150 for a pair of new studs and a used tire
this is not okay and there is no way that I can afford to get my stuff from columbus (which will be tossed in a week or so?), unless I somehow make a substantial amount of money quickly (like $400??)
another issue is that I don’t have access to most of my possessions, and thus can’t get at any of my rad goodies to sell beyond what I have with me
so I guess I’m selling my Mother 3 Deluxe Box for $400 (with franklin badge, GB micro, and all the inserts, but no cartridge)
and I guess I’m again willing to sell my beloved RG1xxv with a hardshell case for $875 (the pink on here)
I don’t want to part with either, but I have no other options beyond begging strangers on the internet, which is a thing that I don’t want to make into a habit
please consider signal boosting

My dad, grandmother, and I along with my girlfriend are DESPERATELY trying to raise money to find a house for us and our three beautiful cats. We’ve sold as many of our expendable things as we can and we still don’t have nearly enough, we need to raise $1,500 dollars at the very least and we are…

Well the situation just got progressively worse… The apartment manager found out that me, my girlfriend, my dad, and our cats are staying here and we’re being told to vacate within the week with NO WHERE to go, and we still only have $170 out of $1,500 raised. So unless we make this happen fast, we’re going to be on the streets, and who knows where our cats are going to be because there is absolutely nowhere for them to go and we just can’t, CAN’T get rid of them, they’re our family too. Please spread this around again..!! I didn’t think the situation could get any worse, I’m on the verge of a breakdown and I don’t know what to do anymore. Anyone who donates anything above $10 dollars will recieve a bust drawing of their choice from me. We need this so badly, please, please help..!!

I’M GETTING EVICTED ON AUGUST 7TH AND I NEED HELP

catbountry:

drtanner:

Well, here we are, folks. In a little over two weeks I am going to be literally homeless.

Now, I’ve known about this for a while, but the reason I’m making this post today is because some of the details of this clusterfuck have changed slightly since I spoke to my mother this afternoon, whom I had hoped would be helping me with this, namely with getting my possessions out of the apartment with some assistance from my brother and helping me to store them until I find a new place to live permanently.

UPDATE: She isn’t.

What this means is that I am now going to have to find a removals company and self-storage, both of which are going to cost money, by myself, in order to make sure that my stuff isn’t just turned out onto the street by the bailiffs when they arrive on the morning of August 7th.

I have neither the money nor the mental acuity to arrange this myself. I genuinely cannot clear my head enough to think this through. This is precisely the reason that my mental illness is keeping me from working, if anyone needed any clarity on that - between my depression and my anxiety, my brain just shits itself in the face of anything even remotely complicated, and I simply cannot concentrate for long enough to get anything done. I can’t even be trusted to eat from day to day, for fucks sake. Needless to say, to arrange something that a mentally healthy person would probably struggle with is well beyond me right now, and I currently have no assistance with it. It’s pretty great. 

The homelessness isn’t my concern, so much as getting my stuff out of the apartment and into self-storage on or slightly before August 7th. That’s what I need help with, just arranging the removals and the storage and getting it done. If you think you can help me with this, please get in touch, because I’m wholly incapable of doing it alone.

If you’re in the Warwickshire or Stratford-upon-Avon area and you’ve got assistance or advice for me, I’d hugely appreciate it. Additionally, if you live anywhere in the world at all and you feel like helping me with the costs of all of this, my PayPal is drtanner@hotmail.co.uk and I am very happy indeed to accept donations, although the money is secondary to actually getting shit done somehow. 

I know I’ve got a lot of new followers this last couple of weeks, and I’d really appreciate it if you guys could signal boost the shit out of this. You like my art, I appreciate that, but there won’t be any more art if I don’t get my shit together and get my stuff taken care of somehow within the next week or ten days. 

A little helping hand and a bit of experienced advice is really all I need right now, and if you guys could assist me in finding it, I’d be very grateful.

Thanks.

PLEASE HELP OUT TANNER.

send a gay orphan 2 college for some sweet art

hey friends, i’m seriously begging you to donate and signal boost this. my friend has moved far away from her home and many of her loved ones for this, and if she doesn’t make enough money, not only will she not be able to attend school, she will have to find a way back to north carolina and go back to working a low-wage restaurant job that doesn’t pay the bills instead of going to school.

HELP! Need Homes for TWO CATS

threesixtyasses:

I’m really worried about two of our cats that live here… We have four pets, a dog and three cats. Two of the cats we cant take with us when we’re beign kicked out, and I KNOW for a fact that one of the council members of this bullshit community, hates them enough to have them put down. 
I’m scared to death about this.

She can’t do this to us, but she will. She’s hateful. She’s evil. She’s a fucking snake in the god damned grass. She hates our cats like nothing else. She’d be happy to kill them. 

So please..I hate putting this out there but PLEASE I am desperate… I need homes for these two cats.

I live near SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI, or BOLIVAR MISSOURI

Funny Face
image

She is a loveable baby girl, and an excellent mouser. She does well in country settings, but if you want to try and make her a house cat, you’re more than welcome. She is fixed, and still has her claws. She takes a bit to warm up to people, but when she does she is an absolute lovable cuddle bug. 

Tiger (The browns sleeping kitty on the left)
image

Tiger has been with us for a while. He’s also fixed and a good mouser. He is mellow and chill, and doesn’t mind finding a spot to curl up in for hours of sleep. He is also loveable once he gets to know you, and does well in a house and outside. Preferably he does well in country settings, but we’re desperate.


Our dog, Heidi, is easy to rehome. We have already found some one to take her in.

The people kicking us out won’t tell us what they’re going to do with the animals. They have been CRUEL and HATEFUL to us ever since this went down a week ago. Im so scared for my babies that i cant even eat, and I cry for hours because I don’t know what to do. Im so scared. Please, if you can, PLEASE reblog this 
If you want to contact me, please drop me an ask. I cna provide phone numbers and addresses. PLEASE. Im desperate to find these babies some play safe.

SIGNAL BOOST for WOODROW
fuckyeahfelines:

I was wondering if it was ok for me to submit this to you guys.
This little guys name is Woodrow. For the last few months he has not been able to eat very well and he has been getting worse. After getting a second opinon on his condition they are reccomending a biopsy to see if he could have cancer. Every day counts, and without proper diagnosis we could just be treating symptoms while something much worse is lurking underneath. I love this guy to death, he is only 10 years old and he could have twice that left but if he does have cancer and it goes untreated for too long it could be too late.
Mod edit: Donations can be made here: (GoFundMe)

So Jim Beaver is trying to raise funds to help thespian education for children in LA, an area that is consistently getting arts funding yanked from their schools. I’m really glad that we funded Reading Rainbow, but can we give this a little attention too?

Help theater! Seriously. I might try to forward some of this myself. I loved theater class. Theater is what makes my Ren Faire wonderful.
Hell, so many characters we know and love today originate from theater. We really need that. Soooo Imma share this.

Signal: Boosting it. Spread the word. Great that some guy can accidentally raise 40k for Potato Salad, but hows about we send some cash to something epic — like the arts?

boost because I hate that potato salad made all that money…we are stupid.
