Hey all. To the people who’ve donated, I couldn’t possibly be more thankful. I’ve been able to keep my head barely above water. But unfortunately, another month has passed with absolutely no job prospects. So many of the jobs that are available either aren’t interested once they find out I’m going back to school in the fall, or they’re retail and require standing for long periods of time (I have severe chronic back pain and standing/walking for long periods of time just can’t happen for me.) I am now looking at three major bills due at the end of the month. My rent (which is $600) my car lease, which I have been unable to pay for the past three months (so $210/month x 3, but rounded down to another $600) and am now facing repossession, and my car insurance (which, if I lose my car, I guess doesn’t matter much, but which is $180). I have adjusted my goal accordingly. I can survive without things like cable and a phone, but shelter and a vehicle are absolute necessities. It’s killing me that I’m still in this situation, but any help you could throw my way to keep me sheltered and with access to a vehicle would mean the world. Thank you so, so much.(Full disclosure, I started a new gofundme in the amount of the money I need right now instead of adding more money to my old gofundme link because it seemed confusing to people.)
You guys, this fundraiser is for Amber, my best friend in the world and fellow shyb moderator. This woman helped save my life almost three years ago, and does more for the body positivity community than anyone I’ve ever known.
We’ve raised money here before, and I now you’ll agree that she is an incredible woman, in devastating and scary circumstances, who deserves every bit of our support!
