I’ve been homeless since September 2012, basically I’ve had intense anxiety and depression and I failed my first year of University. I was really scared of telling my parents so when they found out I couldn’t go back to school this September they told me to leave (this is understandable because they both are out of work and also very poor so it’s not reasonable for them to sustain me as well).
I’ve been trying my best to find a job, I comb craigslist and government job sites on a regular basis but I haven’t had much luck, I don’t have any work experience (though I have a ton of volunteer experience!) and I make a bad first impression I think.
I don’t have any relatives in the country or friends that can take me in.
I’ve been pretty good at rationing the amount of money I have but I’ve more or less run out, I get a monthly cheque from the government for $22.75 but that’s not enough to feed me and pay for transport and stuff at this point.
What I’m getting at is I would really appreciate if you could donate even a small amount of money ($1.05 buys me a toasted buttered bagel!) or reblog this post as a signal boost.
I’ve set up a paypal account and I don’t know how paypal works but my e-mail for the account is firstname.lastname@example.org (I set up a ‘charitable cause’ but I don’t know how to link it, I tried adding the button to my layout but when I clicked it it wouldn’t work)
I’m also willing to offer commissions however I don’t really have access to a scanner or supplies beyond some inking pens and pencils and sketchbook paper. Example of my work are under the tags ‘my art’ and ‘my drawings’ on my blog and also at whiskeyclone.deviantart.com so if you want a cute little drawing or something for a dollar I can totally do that!
I really appreciate any contributions/reblogs, I’m just trying to nourish myself enough to keep functioning and looking for a job and a place to stay.
Thank you thank you
I know this isn’t apropos to this blog, but I’d really appreciate it if you guys could please help my friend Cate out, even a tiny bit.
Update: Also when you donate, make sure to mark it as a “gift” so Cate gets every penny.
