aldersprig: (GIRAFFE!)
[personal profile] aldersprig
I am opening a Giraffe Call Prompt Call with the theme of Autumn, Fall, and Falling.

In short: Leave a prompt, get a fic. Signal boosts extend the Signal boost Story if you let me know.

Funds raised will help me afford the bathroom renovations that I really want.

Prompting is free; tipping gets you more words and more fics.

I am selling short fiction to the buyer's prompt. Approximately four cents a word, which means if you give me $15, I'll shoot for 375 words. But you might get 400. :)

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer is generously matching the words, so that if you give me $15 and give us each a prompt, you get two stories of about 375 words each!

Further details at both links. This is a fundraiser for moving expenses—and my July student loan payment, because I don't have that cash on hand anymore, having paid the security deposit with it.

Thank you for reading.

**EDIT: Sadly we lost Hermen during prepping for surgery. I am now trying to raise funds to pay off his final bill.

I was already a bit down on my financial luck this month after a car repair pretty much drained out my savings, but now I really need some help.

My cat, Hermen, is going in for surgery tomorrow to remove a bladder stone that we have been trying to treat with a food based stone dissolution diet for the past 8 months. Unfortunately, that plan didn't work and he has to have the surgery. An expensive surgery that my household can't afford. So, I am asking for help. The good news is that there are several ways that you can help!

1. You can check out Hermen's fundraiser on YouCaring. Donations are greatly appreciated. I don't want him to suffer with this.

2. If you want to make a donation to Hermen's bills directly, I have a post with my vet's phone number. They are happily taking credit card payments over the phone to help Hermen. They vet techs really like him. :)

3. I am selling a bunch of random things. I also have a book/CD/DVD donation drive in the same post where you can name your donation amount, though you will have to pay shipping. Please have a look and see if you would be interested.

4. This one is absolutely free - please, please, please signal boost the heck out of any of the above. Our cat really needs the care and while the vet does payment plans, they only do them for 90 days out. Unfortunately with the enormity of the surgery bill, we won't be able to pay in full by the end of 90 days. I don't want to compromise our good standing with our vet since I want Hermen to continue to receive good care.

Any monies raised above and beyond Hermen's needs will be put into a vet fund to help another family in dire financial need with their vet bills.

Thank you so much!!

Long story very short, my mom and siblings need to be out of their current place by the end of July. She and my stepdad can't get a mortgage because he currently works in Hawaii, but they want to buy in (ideally!) Washington (state, not DC ;) ); my stepdad is applying to jobs in WA, but as y'all know, job hunting is often NOT a fast process.

So, since July is fast approaching (and that IS a hard and fast deadline, sadly), they're trying to raise enough that my mom and sibs can afford somewhere to stay in the interim, and ideally get driving lessons for her (she hasn't driven in over a decade!), my siblings who are old enough, and job retraining for her, since she's been a stay-at-home mom for many, many years. (And believe me, we appreciate it, but now it's a bit disadvantageous for her!)

My mom & sibs would also love to be able to keep their cats; barring that, to rehome them in good places that can afford to take care of them properly!

Here's the link:

They're asking for US$10,000 which, judiciously used, should get them somewhere for (hopefully!) long enough. I know it's a lot, but even if you only have US$1 to spare - or if you can't afford even that (we know very well money is tight for many) please, please signal boost - they, and I, would be so very, very grateful!

(Stretch goals: $$ for me to come visit them at some point, and/or for sibs (and me??) to visit our new stepfamily in Hawaii.

(Insane stretch goal: enough to buy a house. Probably won't happen, but it's really nice to imagine! ;D)

Cross posted to my tumblr here, please boost there too if so inclined.

(I hope I have this tagged correctly!)

Last weekend, my bedroom ceiling suddenly leaked and then collapsed on top of my bed, ruining my mattress topper and mattress. I'm on disability and without renter's insurance, so I'm seeking to raise money to replace the mattress. I've got the details listed here.

My friend's sister/my friend Alice just lost her job unexpectedly, and she could use a little help to get a new place:

Just today, my sister Alice was abruptly laid off from her job with no warning, leaving her with no income, no insurance, and an apartment she can't pay rent on without that last paycheck.

Plus, without that job, she's rushing to find someplace that she can not only afford, but can also find a new job from.

Please help Alice out if you can!

The Queer Detainee Empowerment Project is looking for donations to help a bisexual woman make her $3,000 immigration bond. Maggie is afraid that if she is returned to Poland, she'll face persecution for her sexual orientation. She has two small children who have been separated from her for over a month.

Learn more (and contribute if you can) here:

I have no direct connection to this effort; the link came to me via the (SF) Bay Area Bisexual Network discussion list, and as I am not in a position to contribute myself, I wanted to get the word out.

Posting on behalf of a friend Matt ([ profile] m_logan_2k2) who doesn't have an active personal journal.

/sigh I really, really hate to do this.

I've been struggling to stay afloat for a while now, owing to medical bills and other unforseen expenses that keep cropping up.

I'm at the point now where I have no choice.

I need help.

I have his PayPal info and can vouch for him (I've known him for something around 8 years in roleplaying circles on LJ/Dreamwidth).

If you want to donate PM me and I'll send you his PayPal info.

If you can't donate signalboosting is also appreciated.

Art & Design Commissions

by members of Plures House ♦ as of 5th January 2015

We are currently taking design and art commissions, primarily to cover daily-living expenses and the occasional self-care thing. We had an excessive amount of unpaid leave and half-days at Christmastime (the last and forthcoming paycheque are very small) and we've been bombarded with several bills at once. Things will probably stabilise near the end of the month, but right now it's very stressful.

So... we'd like to use our skills to help you by creating ebook covers, promotional banners for small businesses and crowdfunded services, personal or professional websites - and icons, banners and other designs to make your personal blog or journal a bit prettier~

Samples of our work can be found here! We've done a variety of work including blog/social networking banners, journal/forum icons, ebook covers, blog layouts and websites. Most designs are by me (Kerry) or Yavari, though Noël, James and Lilly have also done some design work as well.

Our commissions post is here on our journal. There is also a special January offer, with all flat-rate items being 50% off.

Art & Design Commissions

by members of Plures House ♦ as of 27th August 2014

We are currently taking design and art commissions, primarily to cover daily-living expenses and the occasional self-care thing. We're recent graduates, though slightly older than the typical recent graduate, without the same sort of safety net that other people may have (because of a bigoted, hostile biological family). We recently had a crisis that cost us the ability to have stable housing for a while, and we're trying to earn some money to allow us to cover more of our daily expenses.

So... we'd like to use our skills to help you by creating ebook covers, promotional banners for small businesses and crowdfunded services, personal or professional websites - and icons, banners and other designs to make your personal blog or journal a bit prettier~

A friend of mine is in damn dire need of money for legal funds. Her livelihood is being threatened, and the poly/queer community is being vilified to try and take her down.

Help Fae is being run by and for [personal profile] ladyotterfae.

I have access to a paypal address for her if you do not wish to use gofundme.

Details not provided on the gofundme for reasons that involve privacy and trying not to stir MORE litigation below:

-I am entangled in a family dispute involving the care of my father, who is ill with a non-alzheimer's form of dementia. (Lewy body, with parkinsonism, for the medically inclined)

-I have been a massage therapist for nearly 7 years, with no ethical (or other) complaints filed until now. This complaint was filed by one of my family members, someone who has rarely bothered to see or interact with me in the last decade, and has certainly never been a client.

-Part of the 'evidence' against me is an advertisement I had long since forgotten placing on a poly-friendly professionals site. The claim is being made that poly = swingers = group sex = my morals are clearly in question because I work with these people, and I must be offering sexual services. (The implications are also being made about my statement of being alphabet-soup and kink friendly, but slightly less overtly. Heaven only knows what would have been claimed if said family member was aware of how many not-straight, transgender, and otherwise non-normative clients I see/have seen.)

Any assistance at all is highly appreciated. Donations, signal boosts, ANYTHING that helps her keep her professional credentials. There are several lives at risk due to this, from human to four-legged, as I don't think any human I know has a bigger heart for the unfortunate four-legs in this town. Mischa came to us via her, for instance.

I'm a chronically ill, disabled almost-30 year-old who just found out I have three-and-a-half months to find a new home in Munich (bad). The new flat needs to be wheelchair-friendly, meet strict guidelines to be paid by the local state, and relatively renovated (almost impossible). I found such a flat (miracle!). In order to move in, I need 3600€ for fixtures and fittings to pay the owner by the end of this month (holycrapnoway).


My GoFundMe Page is here. Details, including direct payment options, are at my journal. Please boost the signal, whether you can help financially or not! THANK YOU!

...when the autopay for your debt-management program leaves your bank account overdrawn.

My husband [personal profile] gridlore had a stroke last July. We've been desperately trying to pare back our budget to the point where we can manage on our own, all while paying off the last of the outstanding bills from his hospitalization and rehab. And we're close...but not quite close enough.

We have four $300(ish) payments left on his truck before we own it free and clear, and having that money available will make staying on top of the bills MUCH easier. But at the moment, we're in the hole, and it's another week and a half before I get my next paycheck.

In the interest of not asking for something for nothing, I make scarves; anyone who is willing to send me $20 can give me color preferences in a message, and I'll see what I have that I can offer you. (The ones in the picture are all gone; I have some of the same colors available.)

My PayPal address is purplekoosh at gmail. And whether or not you can help, thank you for reading.

Edit, 2227PDT: My currently-available scarves are now in this post.

My mate Rowan's laptop has died; he's running a GoFundMe to help with the cost of replacement. He's made heaps of themes for DW - chances are good that you are using or have used one. & he is generally a good bloke in a tough spot, handling this simultaneously with intersectional oppressions. We know it's hard for folk to find money at the moment - passing the link on would also be super-appreciated. <3

[personal profile] sharpeningthebones is asking for help to get their car repaired. Them and their housemates are looking to get out of a really shitty living situation (like, their house is quite literally falling apart - one of the rooms doesn't have a roof, and only two of the rooms are actually livable) and they need their car to get all their stuff moved. One of their housemates, [personal profile] thelinesoflearning, is also offering tarot readings, writing, editing, audio recording, graphic making, and filking to raise money for this. Please consider helping if you have money to spare.

Hello everyone, just wanted to let everyone know that I appreciated the help I received from this community before. Things are looking better, but just when I thought things were looking up until Read more... )

On the upside I have gotten help with the student loan issue, and they may be forgiven. Please keep fingers crossed!

Thank you all again for your help and support.

I had a surgery earlier this month and have had complications from it. I'm trying to raise money to afford wound care supplies while I heal, since they're not covered by my insurance. I'm selling tarot readings here and, even if you're not able to buy a reading, I'm giving away free 2-card readings.

If you could help out, even just to signal boost things, I'd appreciate it tons. Thanks.

Several days ago, 14/1/2014, my friend [ profile] KDSarge's teenage daughter, Hope, ran away from their home in Arizona. There's still no news on her whereabouts as of 10pm PST.

From the original post on KD's blog:
Yesterday my daughter ran away to chase her dream (being a rock star) even though she can’t sing or play. She’s barely fifteen, and apparently she’s headed to California. All her friends seem as surprised as I am.

Since then, several followup links have been posted, from the original get-the-message-out post on Tumblr, to another two tumblr posts, one with more descriptions, and one with some fuller pictures of Hope, to a followup post on her blog with more pictures, and the creation of a Find Hope facebook page with further information (including Hope's note to her mother).

I've known KD for a few years now, and she's a great person. Please signal boost however you can - tweet it, reblog KD's tumblr posts, share it on Facebook, even in your own journals, whatever - especially if you live in the southwest US or know people who do. The more eyes on this, the more people aware and putting out info, the better chance there is Hope will be found (hopefully). Let's get the word out.

Thanks. ♥

I'll be adding more info to my personal signal-boosting post as and when it becomes available. ETA: She's been found! \o/
