I never wanted to do this, but I need to, and by a lot- in a short amount of time.
I need at a minimum $800 USD to get by and pay rent for next month. However, that leaves August and September up in the air until my student loans are released for ‘cost of living’, as well as Katherine’s own student loans. So ideally, $2400 or more. But that’s an insane amount to ask anyone, or even on a site like tumblr. SO I’m hoping for at least enough to cover my dog's (oh and my cat) food ($50), rent ($608 a month), and have to deal with the rest of the bills the best I can. My bank account literally does not have enough for anything in August.
We as a couple are offering our talents, for any donation amount. She writes shore stories (examples: x ) for anything of your needs, and I do art (examples here: x x x x x x).
All donations and payments are done through my paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org) or through youcaring (which is basically my paypal) and any donation amount is appreciated. If you do donate, please tell me what your paypal account was/something to identify you as a doner, and what you would like (art, or story) and you will get within the week of your donation.
We’re in our renewal month for food stamps, and due to the situation I’m in with college and having to fight with getting back into it for next semester, we won’t be getting food stamps again until either myself or Katherine are ‘full time student status with a job’.
My new job barely pays minimum wage, and at that they told me I’d be getting at best one shift a week. So I’m looking for a second job to fill more hours. Along with Katherine’s own job hunting. It’s hard, we live in a really poor area of Central Georgia. I’ve been applying at least five a week, and getting maybe one or two interviews a month at best.
I’m just really scared, and I need to provide for my family like anyone else.
Hey guys, as you know I also sell handmade leather pouches, bracelets and necklaces and due to the emergency some of my friends have run into — listed above — I have decided that I will be making custom orders and everything I make will go to them.
I can be reached on tumblr, through my personal email at email@example.com or alternatively, my etsy store (which still has a few things that needs ironed out)
Due to the nature of this, I will be dropping prices for necklaces to $10, with leather pouches being 20$.
If you aren’t interested in buying, feel more than free just to reblog and help create awareness.
