I’d like you to meet me and my younger siblings. This is us. :)
I’m posting this because my family and I are literally on our last leg, and we could use a little help.
Last year, both my mom and I lost our jobs. For about 8 or 9 months, our only source of income has been working in conjunction with a mechanic and advertising on Craigslist, and we’ve been able to get by.
About 2 or 3 weeks ago, that mechanic decided to pick up and leave, leaving us no way to make any money. Both my mom and I have been applying to jobs with no success so far (Even if we got jobs, I don’t know if we would have money for gas to get back and forth).
Currently, the only thing bringing in money right now for us Amazon mturk, which is literally raking in pennies. However, since our internet got shut off about 4 days ago, I haven’t been able to do that, either. (I’m sitting in Caribou right now with my laptop - literally the only thing I have right now - I’ve been having to skip school to walk here and try to make a few bucks every day).
As of now, we are out of internet (which is only important because it’s the only way we can make money), our gas is getting shut off next week (which means we won’t have heat in our house in this 35 degree weather), and we are on our last stock of food. We’ve got enough food to probably get us through another 2 or 3 weeks if we stretch it out.
If you could find it in your heart to donate any money to us for food or for our gas bill or rent so we don’t lose our house, too, it would be so greatly appreciated. I know it’s on the internet, and it can seem sketchy, but I’m begging you, I’m seriously on the verge of losing my home, and we don’t have anywhere to go; none of my family is willing to help us to get by on food or rent or anything.
I don’t have much to offer, I’ll take requests for graphics/gifs, fics, videos, masterposts, whatever, that’s all I’ve got for right now. But if you could help out my family I would literally do anything you wanted that was in my realm of possibility.
I just put a donate button on my page, so if you would be willing to help me and my family in any way, I would be so grateful.
Like I said, I wouldn’t ask if I wasn’t desperate, but if you could donate even just a few dollars, heck if you only have a few cents, anything, I would do any requests for you. Please. We just really need the help right now.
Even if you can’t donate, if you could signal boost, I would be just as grateful.
Thanks for listening.
They’re always kept in the dark - meaning they’re BIG moments, they’re always the most talked about scenes of the episodes, they’re always SO FUCKING GOOD, Chris and Max have AMAZING chemistry and produce super super high quality.
They’re sickeningly short, spread way too far apart, and not frequent enough (FOR NOW).
We are masters at analyzing THE FUCK out of every small detail. Like literally everything. Good because FEELINGS and baaaad because FUCKING FEELINGS.
there’s literally no possible way you can break our spirits at this point.
Remember that check-ins are mandatory; this check-in will be open 48 hours (from now, January 7th, until 11:59 PM EST, January 9th). Additionally, if you’re running a little behind schedule on your work, we will be running a poll to see if anyone needs the bang to open an extension of either one or two weeks, so be sure and vote when the poll goes up next week!
The giving season is fast approaching! The F&tF mods encourage and support the act of giving to charities, specifically those aimed at helping the LGBT community. As a lot of us know, the LGBT community is a closely linked aspect of the Glee fan community, especially for those of us who are a part of the community ourselves. This is our chance to give back a little. There is no limit on how much or little you can give. We understand that, in this economy, giving can sometimes be a difficult task to accomplish, but just remember that every little bit makes a difference; you can make a difference.
When you donate to the charity of your choice you will receive from us a personalized banner in your F&tF profile page, as well as the knowledge that you’ve done something to help others.
We will be running this event until January 1st, 2012 so, if you can afford to, be sure and join in on the giving!
Please click here to see our list of charities, how to donate, and previews of the donation banners!
If you would like to post this to your LJ to help spread the word, F&tF’s LJ mirror has a repost button on the entry.
