Hey followers! I need your help.
Long story short: I’m broke, dead broke. And I need help.
I’m humbling myself before you all in an attempt to help me raise some money so I can continue looking for work. As a few of you may know, I lost my job a few months ago and it’s hard looking. I’m humbly offering my services to any and all followers who are willing to send me a few dollars via Paypal. If you want, you can request certain things.
- I’m okay at cobbling together videos. I can do an MST3k video of your choice. I can do a personal video. I can even do a Let’s Play of any PC game I can get my hands on.
- I’ve got a Ustream. If you want, we can watch an MST3k, Rifftrax, Film Crew, or Cinematic Titanic of your choice together.
- I’m a bit of a writer. Do you want my opinion on something to do with MST3k? I’d be more than happy to.
- Other things? Well, make a request and we’ll see what we can do. I’d love to play some Dungeons and Dragons.
Basically, I just need some pocket money. Stuff to help keep me afloat. And I promise I will continue to keep posting quality content.
I will post a thank you video to anyone and everyone who helps, if you want.
Message me or send a fan mail and I’ll reply with the Paypal e-mail address to send to.
(This is really hard for me to post. But I’m getting desperate)
I need a little help, guys.
Well, not me, specifically. It’s actually a really close friend of mine. I want to keep her anonymous for now, unless she decides to make herself known. Suffice it to say, I’m pretty worried.
My friend just found out that she might have cystic fibrosis. As many of us know, it’s a serious disease. The problem is, it’s very humid where she lives, and she can’t afford even the cheapest dehumidifier at Wal-Mart. Skyping with her tonight, she had to walk away because she couldn’t breathe, and I just realized how bad this could be for her.
What I’m asking right now is for a little help. I want to save up some money for the cheapest humidifier I can find and send it to her. She literally is incapable of buying it herself: she and her mother can barely afford to buy food for themselves every month, with food stamps. It’s only sixty or so dollars with shipping and handling, so if sixty people were to see this and donate just a dollar, that would make it possible for me to get it for her. I would purchase it directly with paypal, and if there’s any money left over, I would give it her and her mother so they can use it as they need it.
Please, tumblr. I’ve seen this site do such wonderful things for people in need. I know this is just another of a million sob stories, but it would mean the world to me if you could just give this a signal boost, even if you can’t give money yourself.
If you are interested in giving any money, send me an ask and I’ll give you the email my paypal is connected to.
Thank you so much.
Could you guys do me a huge favour?
I’m trying to prove the validity of online communities for my anthropology/sociology/psychology class and I need some people to fill out a survey to gather data. It only takes a second, it’s only seven questions and I’d really appreciate it.
UPDATE: HOLY MOSES THANKS YOU GUYS! I’ve gotten more of a response than I’d hoped for and for that I am deeply thankful! Thanks to those that have participated and thanks to the people who helped move this around so I could get my data!
To David Karp, Co-Founder and Chief Executive of Tumblr
Dear Mister David Karp
We love your website, it brought together many talented artists, critics and fandoms far and wide
We adore Tumblr as seen in some posts among the website
But Yahoo! is trying to buy your website, many of us do not want that. Research reveals that any website bought by Yahoo! looses it’s popularity and is later closed down!
Please Mister Karp, you cannot sell Tumblr to Yahoo!
Creating a website as popular and loved as yours is an amazing accomplishment, and your name will be remembered and set in history.
Myself and several other users have recently discovered your social network and do not want it to be closed after joining only a short while ago!
Please Mister Karp, please deny the money they offer you!!! We love Tumblr! We do not want it closed!!!
A Plea for Help
This is incredibly embarrassing, but I don’t have a whole lot of pride left so here goes.
I’m losing my apartment soon. My cousin has said I can live with her and her husband, but they’re almost 500 miles away and the cottage in their back yard is very small. I need to raise money to pay for the truck and for a storage space. I’ve already sold a quarter of my book collection and I’m going to have to give away/donate/throw away almost all of my furniture but it still isn’t enough.
I won’t be able to pay anyone back, but anyone who donates can request a drabble or a manip or something else of your choosing - you pick the fandom. (Might not get it done until I’m up there and settled, so late March probably, fair warning.)
PayPal address: donation at raspberryworld dot net.
Anything anyone can do to help would be appreciated. Please boost the signal.
Sometimes I want to hurt myself (not self harm related)
Just so that I can stand on equal footing with some less fortunate people and truly be able to communicate with them
I sometimes wish I have grown up in poverty like my cousin so I can refrain from accidentally mentioning certain things that she doesn’t like to hear (I didn’t grow up with her, it’s kinda hard to know every single thing that could hurt her, I mean EVEN MY CLOTHES COULD HURT HER SINCE THEY’RE WELL MADE AND ALL) and stop being so guilty that I can’t even talk to her properly
I want to write a tragedy but since my life has been sheltered how can I even write the pain as if I understand it since I’ve never had that experience myself
I want to talk to certain people but since I’m privileged I need to take their experiences into account but how the heck am I supposed to do that if I’ve never had those experiences
If I want to understand rape victims is getting raped myself the only option since reading up on it does not seem to work
I’m sure some other privileged people like me would like a way to understand non-privileged people better without going through the same shit they went through that nobody ever deserves
I don’t want to be an insensitive idiot but can somebody out there help me with how to not be an insensitive idiot because I have no idea how
Are well-intentioned (don’t count me if you don’t think I’m well intentioned) privileged people doomed just because they are lucky
I’m pretty sure I didn’t say this right
E: I’m really sorry if I sounded like a selfish asshole or something in this post
Hi from Susie & Sabrina (aka Gomar6sims)
To all our Berry loving friends ..
We really need more help over at our berrification blog; Berrify All The Worlds. Anything you can do will really help us out - whether that be building a house, creating a family or even a simple reblog. So click the link above and have a little look around our berrification dedication blog.
Lots of berry love
Susie <3 xo & Sabrina ^.^
im getting bored of this blog now, all the pictures look the same, all i do is come online, queue a bunch of stuff and then go and browse the web until the queue needs filling back up, i barely follow anyone and i barely talk to anyone. maybe ill delete the blog, but i don’t know, all the hours ive spent on it will just be wasted.
i want to start an actual writing blog, but i wouldn’t know what to say or where to begin, i dont have any special hobbies and theres nothing unique to this blog, its just like a thousand other “grungey” “dark” blogs out there, demonstrating my hopeless, damaged way of thinking that i can never get across to people in the real world, for lack of words to describe the thoughts/feelings/emotions.
i cant even remember where i was going with this, but whatever, i feel numb, and clueless at whats happening at the moment, and i need someone to tell me what to do.
I doubt it will do any good at this point, but if you do want to reblog the Sherlock note without the accompanying fic attached (to save space, which I can totally understand), can you at least link to it on AO3?
Really only because I don’t want to keep getting messages from people telling me to credit Third Star when I DID.
