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 email@example.com (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 :)
hey, everyone. it’s renleigh from thelittlekneesofbees. also known as bmoburns. i know everyone hates crowd funding reblogs but i need to get out of this house. i’m currently in therapy so i’ll need money to keep paying for that once i move out. i’ve applied to almost 50 jobs and i’ve gotten no call backs. spending the summer here until georgetown isn’t a viable option anymore. my laptop is broken so i’m borrowing my sisters laptop but she’s eventually going to go back to school so i can’t keep updating like this. my parents aren’t going to stop. it’s me that has to leave. i didn’t raise enough money last time, and that was a big mistake on my part. i should have just left. but i think i have more followers now and even though i stopped talking about my home life i have all of my experiences from last year archived. i’ll probably start doing it again but under read mores. i found an apartment for $900 in brooklyn, new york and i’d want to put down something before they sell it to someone up, but it just opened up so hopefully things will go my way for once and i can get a job and apply for medicaid to cover my psych payments if my parents cut me off of their insurance. i won’t need medicaid for long because when school opens back up i’ll have enough money(when someone hires me) to pay for georgetown’s health insurance.
maybe i can write things for people, or do research for papers for people doing summer classes? i’ll also be transparent with my money. i can make videos of the new apartment and even take screenshots of all of the applications i’ve filled out already and if anyone wants my resume they can have it. i just really need to leave.

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.
PLEASE READ THIS: We badly need your help.
Hi, this is Vira Gunn. I never thought I would be doing this, but I need help. As many of you know, I have a rare neurological disorder. Recently, I had a catastrophic shunt failure that required surgery. In the past three weeks, I have had surgery three times, and tomorrow, it will be the fourth. This is physically and emotionally draining for me and those around me. Financially, it is extremely difficult. My family can’t visit me because they live in New Jersey, and between gas and the tolls, it is too expensive for them. My husband visits me every day, but he needs to take time away from work to do so, which is costly, and the parking alone is draining us. It has depleted money set aside for an emergency, and paying rent has become challenging as well. Right now, all we have is the bond between my husband and myself, keeping each other afloat, but the constant worry over money for medical bills is always there. There is not a single day when I don’t cry. So, I’m asking from the bottom of my heart, if you have any money to spare, please consider putting it towards us in our time of need. Again, I hate to ask this, and Leon is too proud to do this, so I will.
Thank you to all those who sent well wishes and continue to do so. They make me smile in this lonely hospital room. Also, thank you to the editors at Nerd Vice for keeping the site running because there is no way that I can do it right now. They are the most amazing people.
Here is how to donate. We’re setting it up through a relative so that our real names won’t show up should you want to donate.
Thank you all again and I know I’ll get through this … it’s just been a bigger battle than I expected.
You can find the donate button just blow or at the top of my personal tumblr. Please spread this around as much as you. Every dollar makes a difference.
Apparently there’s some issues with the paypal link in this post. The one at the top of my tumblr definitely works, though. If you still have problems, just donate directly to “firstname.lastname@example.org” on Paypal. A relative has been kind enough to let use his name/bank account to help us preserve our secret identities.
If you have trouble finding the working button, please let me know.
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.
hey everyone, it’s the littlekneesofbees’ new blog. my name is renleigh, nice to meetcha. i currently live in the not so nicest of environments, mostly because i made the mistake of coming out to my parents last year. next month, an apartment opens up in brooklyn for $900 and i’m 1/3 way to my goal of $900, keep in mind i’ll also have to start paying for my own therapist and psychiatrist. as well as my primary because i get sick kinda often. aside from that, the laptop that my parents broke has been generously replaced by a former partner and after 50 job applications, macy’s in midtown has asked me for an interview.
in order to pay for the donation, i will help write papers for summer courses, sell shoes, and record songs, also, if you live in ny i can babysit your kids or walk your dog. i can also give you my resume/CV if you want it.
please consider the former when donating, please donate whatever you can and if you would like an update of how much money i have first before* you donate i would be happy to screenshot my paypal.
you can donate at my main blog or click and share this link: here.
