I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read, donate, and share this.

I absolutely hate asking for help, but I don’t know what else to do. I’m a 19 year old female disabled domestic abuse survivor who is in pretty desperate need of housing. This is the second time that my mom, sister, and I have been homeless since leaving my abusive step dad in 2008. My mom started dating my abusive step dad when I was two, so I don’t know a life without him. He tore down my self esteem and prevented me from having a childhood as well as having friends, and once we left him (I was 14) I hoped that things would be better, but nothing really improved. My mother and I do not get along, and it is extreme, which most likely stems from her life being a rollercoaster as well, but she is constantly at my throat and I can’t handle this constant anxiety coming from my home life anymore. Right now I am relying only on my sex work (I sell my nude photos) in order to buy food and necessities for my entire family. Because of this I am unable to save anything because I don’t make very much money at all and I have been forking over cash to many people who don’t understand the stress and strain I’m under. I have dealt with constant bullying at home (and at school, before I graduated) my entire life, as well as constantly being evicted and moved around and without basic needs such as food and clothing. I’ve lived in over 20 places so far and have attended 10 schools in my life, and I’d really love to stay somewhere for more than a few months for once. Currently, there is nowhere for me to stay besides my cousins two bedroom, one bathroom with 5 other individuals. I do not have a bed of my own, and I have a chronic bone disease as well as other chronic bone problems, so I’m in extreme pain 24/7. I also have anxiety and ocd, so as you can imagine, my mind is being exposed to a very negative environment and I have finally admitted to myself that I am depressed, and have been for a very long time. I want to begin my journey to happiness. That starts with getting away. I need help with housing. I am looking for funds for only myself as my family (although I’m sure they have good intentions, and I know I shouldn’t be making excuses for them) are very toxic and I am fighting nightly anxiety attacks being around them on top of my heavy amount of stress, so they will not be coming with me(my mom is saving for a place for she and my sister.) I need roughly $4,200 to afford to move into an apartment (a few months rent in advance, to cover myself if I don’t make enough one month until I am accepted for disability and find a part time job, furniture necessities, and groceries. Also money to pay for my wonderful dog to be able to live with me.) I apologize if this is scattered, but I’m explaining this the best I can while enduring a migraine I’ve had for two weeks and my hands shaking with anxiety(I’m a mess right now), so please forgive me if it is. Even $1 is help, and I ask that if you can’t afford to help, please share this. I appreciate everyone taking the time to read this so so much. I love you all, please remember that if you ever need someone to talk to, I’m here for you. xo Amber

Please please please take the time to read and re-blog this and help out a person in EXTREME need. It means the world for even just a re-blog because its a chance for her story to get out there and have a chance at living a peaceful life. Amber is full of dedication, courage, life and so much more. I’ve never seen a more generous person in my entire life. She would do absolutely ANYTHING to help anyone in need. Even if it’s something from a sweet complement to a stranger, to getting the whole Kansas City Chiefs team to sign a foot ball in memory of a child that passed away who’s most favorite football team was the Kansas City Chiefs. She goes above and beyond for anyone, despite her issues and the negativity of the world. Her whole world is crashing down on her and she’s trying her absolutely best to keep trying even if there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. As time goes on for her, the tunnel seems to be getting longer, darker, colder and no one is coming to help her way out… So show her that light at the end of the tunnel. Show her there still is hope. She is my very best friend, and I can’t stand to see her suffer anymore and not be able to help her in anyway possible. Please, read this story. Share this story. Even donate if it is possible. It would be beyond words grateful if you would do any of those three. Thank you. <3

I’d like to add that I do NOT condone gofundme’s recent activity allowing racist campaigns to continue on their site. However this is currently my only option.

Okay so I’ve never actually met you but I love you so much and I’ll do everything I can to help you 💕😘

You’re wonderful and I love you!

The community in Ferguson is struggling to come up with the money to keep their kids fed, since school has been cancelled all this time, yet people have donated over $12,000 to the murderer who started all of this in the last 24 hours alone. Think about that. And then donate to the right cause.

“If someone were to die at the age of 63 after a lifelong battle with MS or Sickle Cell, we’d all say they were a “fighter” or an “inspiration.” But when someone dies after a lifelong battle with severe mental illness and drug addiction, we say it was a tragedy and tell everyone “don’t be like him, please seek help.” That’s bullshit. Robin Williams sought help his entire life. He saw a psychiatrist. He quit drinking. He went to rehab. He did this for decades. That’s HOW he made it to 63. For some people, 63 is a fucking miracle. I know several people who didn’t make it past 23 and I’d do anything to have 40 more years with them.”

Okay, so many of my watchers on deviantART are already aware of this, but last month I was scammed for thousands of dollars by a user named Pixlett / ToxicMutagen. (They both use the same PayPal address) Pixlett has since deactivated her account.

My account of the fraud:

[ Part 1] [ Part 2 (Today) ]

Pixlett bought some artwork from me for very large sums of money. Then, a few months later, I notice that a couple grand went missing from my PayPal, because she filed a credit card chargeback against me, claiming that she never got the item. Obviously, it was digital artwork, so there was no physical item to ship. She did this for every single piece of artwork she bought from me, and even after backing myself up with a ton of evidence, PayPal ruled in her favor.

And now, today, it has happened AGAIN. Pixlett has filed MORE chargebacks against me, putting me into negative $2,000 in my PayPal account. I start school in a week and need money to pay for my new textbooks, supplies, and gas, but looks like that’s not gonna happen thanks to this fraud.

I have set up a PayPal Donation button on my page, where you can help me out. Even just a dollar helps. Small amounts add up quickly, and I need to get out of the negatives as soon as possible.

I apologize, because I never ask for help, but this is just beyond my capacity of fixing in such a short amount of time. Several other people were also affected by this scammer, so please consider helping them out too.

Thank you! ;u; If you have any questions or concerns, you can message me on here or on my dA.

Hello everyone, my name is Ashley, and my sister’s name is Alicia. In April of 2008 my sister was in an hit and run accident, which changed my families lives forever. My sister was only fourteen years old at the time, and she suffered a severe brain injury, and she was in a coma for months on end in the hospital. My sister had to undergo many brain surgeries due to the severe trama to her head, as well as collar bone surgery due to trama to her shoulders and arms. My sister was in the hospital for so long, which resulted in her having little mobility to the right side of her body. Doctors told my family that she would not survive, and if she did, then she would be in a vegetated state for the rest of her life. However, she eventually woke up out of her coma, although she had little responses to stimulation. Over time she started responding to people and interaction, but I knew that she would never be the same again. Eventually we were able to bring my sister back home, although she required a hospital bed, a wheelchair, and other special items. She had a trakea so she could breathe, and she had a feeding tube. My mother, Melissa, had to take money out of her retirement funds in order to pay for the items that my sister needed, such as the food that could be administered through a feeding tube, that insurance would not cover. My family suffered financially, and they are thousands of dollars in debt. My sisters life is changed forever. Now she is twenty years old, and she has to stay in highschool until she is twenty-one years old. My sister was going to physical, occupational, and speach therapy, until the insurance stopped covering it. Alicia has difficulty reading, writing, talking, and finding the right words to come out. She often gets frustrated with herself, and she realizes that she cannot do a lot of the things that other people can do. My sister is in a wheelchair, although she is practicing everyday to get better. My sister has made a miraculous recovery, although she still has a long journey to go. I am asking for any help in order to help my family, and ensure a better future for my sister. Everything helps, even if it’s a one-dollar donation.
Please spread the word and thank you all!

PLEASE HELP ME PAY FOR MY DAD’S BACK SURGERY!

whew, okay, i’ve already had an anxiety attack today from the thought of asking strangers for help, but I’ve decided it’s the best course of action available to me right now since I was just let go from my job. 

I don’t want to publicly provide the whole story, but basically because of a few circumstances revolving around my mother’s illness my family is again in need of financial help. My father has nearly drained his retirement fund to pay for various medical/life expenses over the past five years including a large payment toward getting a back surgery he’s been needing for years now. He was scheduled to have that surgery today, but he cancelled it last week (with no refund of his money) because he can no longer afford to have it. Having the surgery means being on temporary disability pay from his work for 3-6 months, which means he’d only get up to 60% of his normal pay for the duration of his disability. We can no longer afford rent even with 100% of his pay. We aren’t on the verge of homelessness like last time as my dad’s retirement account has a little money left in it, so this is NOT an emergency. But we could use some help, and we no longer have the resources to help ourselves.

I’m trying to raise enough money to cover what we can’t afford in rent for the rest of our lease this year to avoid breaking our contract, and to pay for our expenses while my dad, the only current wage-earner in our family, is on short-term disability. This surgery is to replace a disc in his spine, and I think to repair a badly-healed fracture he sustained years ago, if possible. This surgery would allow him to work and live with vastly less chronic pain than he experiences now, pain that has been interfering with his life for years. It would give him a new lease on life, really. I want to raise this money as soon as possible because he has to have this surgery before January of next year, when his insurance plan changes. After next year we will definitely never be able to afford this surgery because we’d have to pay a huge deductible up front for any medical costs. Raising this money as soon as possible is key, because the date of the surgery is usually set about 2 or 3 months out from the day of scheduling. I stress again that we need the surgery to be performed before January 2015.

To supplement our costs of rent and living, and to cover the remaining expenses of the surgery, I’d ideally like to raise $4000, but honestly any amount would help us stay afloat through this turbulent time. This money would primarily pay for rent, but some will go to utilities, car maintanance, and anything leftover will go to my sister’s and my university costs for the year. Again, this is not an emergency as we aren’t so close to homelessess this time, but my father means so much to me, and to see him living with such terrible chronic pain and to have been so close to fixing it just kills me. This would be the best thing to ever happen to him, and to me, if we could manage it. So please, if you have a few bucks to spare, I ask that you send them my way. The GoFundMe link is http://www.gofundme.com/d1nj78.

Thank you for reading this, reblogging it, and/or donating. I am eternally appreciative for your time and your help. <3 Thank you thank you thank you!
