I don't use LJ very frequently, but I am just trying to spread the word anywhere I can.
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 tumblr page (I will add one to my LJ when I have access to a computer), 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.
