Hey everybody! Our account migration ran into some issues and we had to just import follows. If you're a mutual and want to stay one, please follow @alanae 💜 💙
asking for financial help for basic living expenses, sorry for long post
Hey friends, I hope you're all doing as well as 2020 allows.
I'm afraid I have to ask for help. @goblins and I are in dire straits (dire gays?) and we need to put the begging bowl out again.
For those who don't know us well, we are a poor, disabled trans couple. Rune started a degree-level course back in September, in an attempt to improve our situation, and in the UK that means getting student loans to cover the cost of the course and for living expenses. Previously, we had been on benefits.
We knew that we were going to lose some of benefit income, but we didn't realise that it would be the vast majority of it. As of November, over £1000 per month has been cut, leaving us around £150 per month. The student loans (which will have to be paid back) should cover most of the shortfall, but we'd already had to spend a large chunk on books, equipment and travel.
The result is that, while we were able to cover everything for November, we have no money for living costs in December. We're trying to raise £1000 to cover what we've lost and are currently about a quarter of the way to that goal.
I know this is a tough time for a lot of people with the pandemic and an expensive time of year at the best of times, but if you could boost this toot and maybe donate what you can afford, we would really appreciate it.
You can also contact Rune for art commissions and I'm currently looking for freelance games journalism work. All of Rune's commission info is on their profile. We can be reached by DM.
Thanks for reading all this! xxx
tl;dr: Please help us keep a roof over our heads and food in our tummies this holiday season!
re-sharing a GoFundMe, financial assistance needed,
"The ice storm in Oklahoma City on Oct 26, caused branches to fall on our power line and rip them from the back of the house"
"We are a poor, queer family living in the Bible belt who cannot often afford upkeep on our home, and lacking electricity and an internet connection is denying us one of our incomes, streaming on twitch.tv/SquirrelLilly which makes surviving that much more difficult."
asking for money help, boosts welcome
hey so me and my grandparents just dumped a fuck ton of money into a school bill but there's still another $500 ish to go
we can probably make it up in time for registration but my father is going through chemo and i'm unemployed so it's very likely that we could end up with a household of 6 people held up by two retirees and one full time worker in a hurry, so things are pretty dire
i set up a paypal here if anyone wants to help out. i don't mind people seeing my deadname so long as you no one calls me that when they should know better lol
trans crowdfund, boosts needed, abuse/transphobia mention
My friend Rosy is an autistic, gay, trans woman currently living with her physically and emotionally abusive bio family in Ohio.
She's been trying to join her loving wife, Nova, in Cape Town, South Africa for most of 2020, but hasn't been able to due to the pandemic.
The SA government has lifted restrictions, but there are a lot of caveats -- including the need to stay in a low-risk country for 10 days.
Rosy and Nova have gathered some money, but not enough to cover accommodation, and extra flight costs needed to avoid laying over in transphobic regions.
Any donations will go a long way in making a HUGE difference in Rosy and Nova's lives.
Boosts so appreciated!
