Signal boost - I'm in a very bad financial place and facing the possibility of being homeless.  
Guys, any help you could send this person would be amazing. Please, pass the word along if you can.

*hugs*

I hate asking for help and try to save it for times when I absolutely need it, and now is one of those times.

From myGoFundMe site: gofundme.com/w5wzd58

I'm in deep financial straits, and I have to ask for help or else I won't make it.

My cats recently got fleas, and when my boyfriend called his mom to ask for help getting them treated/treating our apartment, she decided to withdraw all financial help from us. She's been sending us $400-500 a month to help out with bills until my boyfriend gets disability (which *should* take about 4 more months, they say) but now that she's no longer willing to help, we don't have a way to pay the bills/treat the cats/buy groceries/pay for meds/continue staying in our apartment. We currently have $120 in our bank account.

Please help us. We don't have any local friends, and there's no room at my family's house - they're packed in. We're facing the very real prospect of being homeless. The amount I've stated should allow us to get flea treatment and cover bills for the next 4-5 months.

Thank you for reading.

Any amount will help, even just a few dollars. It adds up. If you don't want to do gofundme, you can paypal me a donation to badbastion@gmail.com.

I'm also offering commissions. $25 per character colored + $25 for a background, or $15 per character clean sketch plus $15 for background. I'll draw any fandom, any characters, any kinks.

If you can't help monetarily but still want to help, please consider spreading the word on LJ or twitter or tumblr.

Thank you so much for reading, and I'm sorry I'm coming to my journal with my hand held out once again. I'm also sorry if I'm coming across as short, but I'm just kind of in shock, and completely terrified.

*hugs* I've been pretty much where you're at before, so I understand and am happy to be able to give a little. Wish it was more. <3

It's not for me but thank you.

Oh. Maybe I should have gotten that. I wish I'd asked now. Not that this person doesn't deserve the help, but I thought I was helping a friend that I knew.

Sorry I fixed the post in a couple more places so others wont get confused as well.

It's a signal boost for a friend she is also taking commissions for her artwork. If you no anyone that wants artwork drawn for them remember her. :)

Sorry for the confusion :D

Gosh, all of a sudden it seems like so many people on LJ are in financial straits and asking for help. No one has mentioned applying for welfare. Is that not an option?

I'm not sure if she can get welfare. I fixed this post in a couple more places so others no this isn't my problem. :D

It's a signal boost for a friend.

Glad you clarified because when I saw the opening line of your entry, I thought the request was for YOU.

I'm not sure if she can get welfare.

If neither she nor the boyfriend have any income or jobs, I'm sure they would be eligible for welfare.

Well they are waiting for his disability pay to come in at 4 months time.

If your interested on artwork she is taking commissions.
