Hey everyone! I know I haven't posted anything in a while and I promise I'll get back to posting regularly at some point (or possibly start a new account, we'll see), but right now my family's going through a really tough spot and we're not really sure how to make ends meet. As of three days ago my older brother started and indiegogo page to see if anyone's willing to help reach out to our family. The indiegogo page has a really long explanation but if you could read it in full and possibly donate, we'd be eternally grateful.
The link to the page is here
A quick rundown of the situation:
- The lease is up this month, but since we're behind in paying the monthly rent $300 of late fees has accumulated, on top of the payment for the rent which is $2300 which we can't afford to pay either, so we're probably going to end up with an eviction notice soon and we have nowhere to go
- My dad has a hella ton of medical issues (to name a few: diabetes, kidney failure, artery calcification, a blood borne illness, etc.), which means medical bills for seeing doctors and obtaining treatments + medication are stacking up, or are unobtainable due to lack of money but are still vitally important for his survival
- My mother has essentially walked away from our family and isn't doing anything to contribute, but still expects us to do things for her whenever she asks (and my dad never says no so she's basically a drain on what little income is available)
- My father's boss (who used to help pick up the slack when we didn't have the money) has been underpaying my dad and has now refused to continue to help us because the company he runs is doing very poorly so now we don't have his emergency help either
If there is anything any of you could do to help it would be greatly appreciated, and if you don't just want to give for free, I'm willing to do any commissions at any price, any media, etc. just to help my family get by because I can't get a legitimate job fast enough to help in this emergency situation. If you can't donate, please at least consider sharing the link on your Facebooks or tumblr accounts (the tumblr link is here
, the indiegogo page has a button for you to click) to help get the word out in case other people out there are willing to help donate to our cause :c Guys I really don't want to end up homeless again, and I don't want my family to have to split apart so please, please, please try and help us do our best.
