So here is the story. I ran a crowdsource fund to move a friend and their two kids out of an abusive home to come live with me. Thanks to the MASSIVE generosity of Tumblr, we were able to accomplish this goal and Mom and babies are safe with me.
Unfortunately, we still need help. I live in a tiny 2 bedroom apartment with two cats, a large dog, two kids and another adult. Mom and the kids all have to share one bed currently. I’m free to leave the lease I’m in at any time but saving up on one paycheck covering four people is hard.
I have managed to scrape together $900 towards moving but according to my calculations, we’re going to need anywhere from $1500 to $3000 to move. To top everything else off, we’re not able to sign up for food stamps (which we sorely need) or reduced day care (which we REALLY REALLY need) until we have a place where Mom is on the lease and where we are currently wouldn’t agree to add them.
Mom just got a new job and once we get moved into a new place, we’ll be able to cover all expenses without much issue but the cost of the initial move needs to be obtained quickly so we can sign up for sorely needed benefits.
To raise money, I’m going to attempt to do as many commissions between now and September 1st as I possibly can creatively and emotionally handle. Which means you will be getting awesome commissions as fast as I can churn them out which means little to no waiting.
Here is what I’m offering:
(Color option 2 and full body options not offered due to time constraints. Prices are applied PER CHARACTER)
Send all commission requests to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be here all day on the weekends working and after 6PM on the weekdays to help you and discuss the wills and won’ts of your requests.
If you’d like to help but don’t want a commission, you can donate to me here. I don’t expect donations but would certainly appreciate any help we can get!
If you have nothing to spare (believe me, I understand) please just signal boost!
