HELP MY MUM! IF WE COULD MAKE FLUFFY CHICKEN HAPPEN THIS IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE
Ok guys, I don’t know how to go about this
This is my brother’s car after he had an accident last Saturday. Thankfully, he suffered no injuries and the damage on the car is relatively minor. However, minor means that repairing it will cost just over 2,000€
And as many young people that live alone, my brother just doesn’t have that money. Additionally, next month he has to pay the car insurance which will probably be around 400€.
And so my mum decided to help him out. She will pay his insurance and will help with at least half of the repair bill (I suspect more, but she won’t tell me). I know that in many families that would be it, she would help him and probably little by little he would pay it back. But my mum really does need that money in a relatively short time, and I’m not sure how can my brother give anything back to her any time soon, taking into account what little money he has.
This is why I, although I have no right to ask anything from anyone, I come here on Tumblr to ask you guys for your help. My mum is going to take her theory exam for her driving license next week, and after that she will have to spend quite a lot of money on her practical lessons. If you’re wondering why doesn’t she have a driving license already and why it is important now, I’ll tell you that my mum has ALWAYS given up anything to herself to make sure my brother and I never lacked any basic stuff. She married young and she had to make sure my father didn’t drink or gambled all the money away so we could have a home, eat and all the essential things. And when she got separated from my dad she never got any money for us from him (even when he won some 20,000 € on the lottery). For as long as I can remember she has worked long night shifts in shitty jobs and for our sake she has denied herself a lot of things, and she barely had any life at all except for working and being with us.
Now that my brother and I both have jobs and that we don’t depend on her that much, she had managed to save some money and decided to get a driving license at last. Because having a car would mean having more job options on relatively close places that however are very badly connected by public transport.
I know that a lot of us are broke. I know that there are people who have much more important needs and that probably deserve more help than I do. But it makes me so sad that she can never have anything for herself. I love my mum so much and I owe her all the opportunities I’ve had in my life and I hate not being able to do much for her in this situation. So I can only hope for some Tumblr miracle. If any of you would feel inclined to help me with this, you can donate to my paypal account firstname.lastname@example.org (I am just completely useless and I can’t figure how to get a donate button on my blog ugh) And if you can’t donate PLEASE REBLOG, you never know who might want to help!
Whatever amount of money you guys helped me collect would go entirely to my mum, no matter how little that was.
And because I feel my gratitude wouldn’t be enough, but I’m not one of those amazing people who can do cool graphics or awesome art, I’ve decided to do some short fiction writing for every donation I receive.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH TO ANYONE WHO HAS READ THIS SO FAR! I hope you have an amazing day and you can ask me any questions about it :)
Lord Truffles is in need of urgent vet care.
I’m a little embarrassed to write and post this, but I’m a bit desperate.
This is my kitty, Lord Truffles.
He was abandoned by someone I thought was a friend, and taken in by my fiance and I (and are now deeply in love with him). He has been looking very bad lately. He has been urinating blood and is in need of urgent vet care.
I consulted with a vet friend (who lives in the Caribbean), and she believes he may have a UTI and, due to the negligence of the previous owner, may be diabetic. I am trying to pick up extra hours at work, but I am still unable to cover his bills.
I’ve created a ChipIn account and only asking for $1.00 donations, or at least a reblog so that maybe someone who can, will help.
I’m sorry to bother anyone but I am desperate and feeling like the worst cat mommy in the world. Thank you for your help.
I really need help you guys. I never thought I would have to do this but I would really appreciate all of your help. Basically my mom and I are losing our home because my mom had to go on disability for her mental health and eventually got laid off, and we need to move into another place. We have gotten approved for a condo but we need to come up with 3000$(the down payment and 1st month rent) by next Thursday or we will basically be homeless. The link that is here (Help for Tiffany) is where if any of you could Donate it would help me out so much. We have asked our family and friends for help and unfortunately many of them are unable/unwilling to help us. So you all could please reblog and share this you have no idea how much you would help me out. Anything would help us out. I am not expecting anything out of anyone. I just thought that maybe this would would help us get back on our feet and put our lives back on track. Thank you all and I love you all!
It’s only been me and my mom in our lives and we have never asked for help because we have always been able to get through things as long as we had each other. But I don’t know if it will be okay this time.
plz help me go to present at the National Conference for Black Studies!
peace! i have the deepest biggest favor to ask.
I’m a senior majoring in Black Studies at SUNY New Paltz, and I was selected as the 2nd place winner for the National Conference for Black Studies student essay contest 2013 for my essay on “The Racial Disparities in Treating and Diagnosing Mental Health Disorders”! (see my post about it for more info).
I was invited to present my paper, but the conference is in Indianapolis, INDIANA, and I’m in New Paltz, New York :( Recently, I requested money from my school to go with a friend who is also majoring in Black Studies. We got approved for $1,000, but that’s a fraction of the total cost to actually travel there, stay in a hotel, and register for the conference. Overall, the trip costs about $1,670 total.
The conference is on March 14th. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for us and we would really like to go. If you could please support, any amount helps. Donate» here.
To return the love, I will email a copy of my essay to each person who donates something.
(If the link doesn’t work plz let me know.)
Peace and thank you!
Serious cry for help
My girlfriend and I just got scammed out of our college tuition.
We like to think the scam was pretty brilliant. A job offer on Craigslist offered $300 a week to handle money orders for a temporarily overseas business owner. After a few weeks of assisting him, he would return stateside and conduct a formal job interview. All he needed was us to deposit checks and send money orders after they cleared. It sounded safe enough.
The first check posted and we sent the money order. All was well. A few days later, however, the bank rejected the check and removed the amount from my girlfriend’s account (along with a fee). Since the money order had been sent, this meant we were out a couple thousand dollars. We assumed that the bank, notorious for its various account issues, was to blame. We tried to call our new employer for assistance but the number was now disconnected. The bank is unhelpful and does not assume responsibility.
It wasn’t until some internet searching where we realized that this was most likely a scam. The strange thing about this is that all our friends knew about this job and not one of them, or us really, thought “hey this might be scam!”
Tumblr, we humbly ask for donations. We are out $3,000, half owed to the bank and half needed to get by. We’ve been forced to use most our food funds for the semester to finish paying for classes and in a few weeks we’ll start running into trouble.
Is there any way you can help us?
Asking For Help
I am in some what of a dire straits right now.
On February 2nd I was laid off from my job because the new owner who took over just the day before, decided that she didn’t need as many employees as she had.
Since then I have been looking for a new job, to no avail. I literally have $0.06 to my bank account and no food.
I am currently trying to get food stamps but the new owner and the previous owner both refuse to write statements for me, both claiming I was working for the other person on my last day.
I am panicked because I am unsure of how much longer I can do this.
I hate asking for help, because I don’t want people to think I feel like I deserve this, but I really do need it. So I put a donate button on my blog.
Any little bit will help me with buying food and city bus passes to get around each day. I am not looking for a specific amount.
If you would like to help me, the donate button is in the side description of my blog. If you hover over the photo on the left side, a button should pop out for PayPal.
If you can’t donate, I would really appreciate any signal boosts.
Thank you all for taking the time to read this.
Please take the time to read and reblog!
Hi, everyone. I’m here to ask for some help. Some of you may remember a long time ago when I made a post about one of my cats, Worm. Worm had a disease called feline plasma cell pododermatitis. It’s also known as “pillow foot”. The foot pads of the cat become inflamed and pouchy. In most cases there is no harm and the cat requires no treatment. In severe cases, the pad can tear open and become infected. Essentially, the entire paw becomes a bloody mass. Some cases require amputation of the pads. It’s connected to feline immunodeficiency virus, but there’s not enough known about it to really understand how or why. All I know is that it weakened Worm.
Worm has since passed and I thought I was done with FPCPD. Unfortunately, I became aware recently that Worm’s brother (littermate) Artemis is suffering from the same disease. Already, it has begun to look bad. He’s going to need treatment, there’s no way around it. If he does not receive treatment then he very well may face a slow and painful death.
The most common treatment is monthly injections of methylprednisolone acetate (depomedrol). My current vet gave these shots to Worm for anywhere between $12-$20 for each shot, although a cursory search shows that it can get quite expensive. Plus there’s the amount due for a vet visit at all and any further care he’ll need, ect;
What I’m asking is if you can help me afford to get Arty the help he needs. I don’t have the money to spare each month. All I ask is for even a dollar, whatever you can spare, so that I can put it in my savings and confirm that I have enough for him to get cared for. My goal is enough to cover shots and vet visits for at least a year.
If, by unfortunate fate, Artemis does not pull through, I will donate any leftover money to a no kill shelter. If he makes a full recovery and no longer needs shots, then the same stands. All leftover money will go to a no kill shelter. I’ve never donated to a shelter but I’m sure I’ll have a way to prove it. Same goes for the vet bills, I’ll photograph them after each visit if people need proof of where the money is going.
Please, if you can’t/won’t donate, reblog this post so that others may see it. If you want to donate, you can send whatever you wish to my paypal: email@example.com
This is Artemis:
(He’s very talkative, so his mouth is open in most pictures of him…)

PEOPLE OF TUMBLR, I NEED YOUR HELP!!
i know lots of people make these, but i figure it’s like homeless people. there’s a bunch of them, but they all deserve to be happy, so it doesn’t hurt to ask for what you need every now and again !!
i was just kicked out about two hours ago for being late to come home by about ten minutes. my dad said he told me to be home by 3pm this morning but i never heard him say anything like that or else i would have made sure i was home by 2pm. he told me to be in the door by 3 which was impossible considering i was on the bus and we’d just picked up two wheelchairs which delays the bus by about 15 minutes. there was no way for me to get home in that amount of time and as soon as i got home my dad told me he’d be back in an hour for me to pack my stuff.
i’m currently staying with a friend for the night, but i have no clue where i’m going to go tomorrow or the day after that or the day after that. i have a little money on my college fund card and some in my trust fund but it’s barely enough to get me through a week.
if you could signal boost the fuck out of this until i have the money to buy some sort of mic and software to start selling my music i’d be so appreciative. i’m still going with my job at olive garden but i dont make much and i dont know how long thats going to last since i might not have access to the transit bus that takes me there for long. please, you guys are keeping me from being on the streets. if you want a commission, feel free to message my inbox. all i can do is write or cover songs but i’m offering it to you. i’ll do anything. i promise.
i just need help. i have a donate button in the sidebar on my profile…that’s about all i can think of. thanks so much. you guys mean the world to me.
God, I hate to do this.
Hi, my name’s Lily. And, well, I need out of my home. I don’t want to beg for money from absolute strangers but it’s my only option at this point. I can’t stay here any longer. I need to move away. My mom treats me like a boy no matter how many times I ask her not to call me “him” or my birthname, but she won’t listen. She insists on sending me to a toxic therapist as well, who treats me like a boy and uses outdated and illegal practices for my condition. I’m eighteen. I need a new start. I need to get the hell out of my mom’s house and get the hell into my own life. I… I need a little help, guys. I need a little push into my new life and into my transition. I really hate to ask, but if you have any money and you could drop it into the link at the end of this post, I’d appreciate any little bit you have to give. I’m begging, I can’t live like this anymore I keep hurting myself and I want to die here and I can’t stand it.
You don’t have to, but… Please?
A friend of mine REALLY needs your help, Tumblr!
This [http://mother-of-alpacas.tumblr.com/] is my friend, Christina. Christina is an amazing girl who is 22 years old and loves whales, pomeranians, and alpacas. She participates in various fandoms and is dearly loved by everyone who’s met her. On December 26th, the day after Christmas, Christina received a call from her doctor and was informed that a tumor in her stomach was malignant; that she had cancer.
Even though the cancer was thankfully caught in its early stage, it’s still cancer. And the surgery to remove the tumor in her stomach is going to cost her $20,000. Though her family will be able to pay for some of the surgery, $20,000 is still a LOT of money to spend, even on something as important as this, and her family just doesn’t have enough money to pay for it all. So that’s where we come in. Many friends of Christina, myself included, want to donate to help pay for her surgery. And because of the high amount of money that it’s going to cost for the surgery alone, we were hoping that other kind, gracious souls out there on tumblr would be willing to help Christina out as well.
Every cent that gets donated will go directly to helping pay for Christina’s medical bills, and believe me when I say that every penny counts, and every penny is appreciated! Even if you only have one dollar to spare, that’s a dollar going towards helping somebody get a cancerous tumor out of their body. Please keep in mind that with cancer, time is of the essence, and the sooner we raise the money to help Christina and her family afford her surgery, the better it will be for her health.
If you can spare any money at all to donate, please send it here:
Even if you can’t spare any money to donate, which is understandable in times as tough as these, PLEASE reblog this to spread the word, and raise the chances of somebody seeing it who can donate.
