HEY GUYS, I'VE GOT SOME PRETTY IMPORTANT SHIT GOING ON HERE AND I'D LOVE IT IF YOU'D SPREAD IT LIKE WILD FIRE.
My friend, Hax, needs a place to stay. He’s transgender with a mother who’s constantly trying to force him to change his view of himself. He’s pretty much fed up with his current predicament and none of his family members are proffering a hand to help.
If you live in, or near Allen, Texas and you can help, please let me know. Please, please, please.
!!!URGENT!!! MY FRIEND NEEDS A PLACE TO STAY!!!
My friend Tony is in a very, very horrible home situation (homophobic slurs, severe psychological trauma, treating him like a slave, taking away his rights and freedoms, playing mind games, etc) and has no money and no access to official identification as his dad will not let him have it.
His mother doesn’t live with them and is just out of surgery, so she cannot take care of him. I am in Canada. I cannot help him. I need your help. Tony has been at risk for suicide before and I don’t want him to come to that place ever again because of that bastard. He is my best friend.
He lives in Norwalk, California, and needs a place to crash for a few days until he can get a social services case going. IF ANY OF YOU LIVE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AND CAN PICK HIM UP AND/OR HELP HIM PAY A TAXI FARE TO YOUR PLACE, PLEASE SEND ME AN ASK RIGHT AWAY. THIS IS URGENT.
He is not on drugs or any medication, and is one of the nicest people that I have ever met. He is a sweetheart. He does not go to school (he takes online classes) and he is fifteen years old. Please help my friend.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ THIS:
I’m not normally the type to ask much from anyone but I have seen Tumblr do some absolutely amazing things and I guess I figured I would try and use the insane capabilities of the Internet to help a situation I’m in. I have a fantastic opportunity to attend one of the UK’s leading film schools for a 2 year intense BA degree in Practical Filmmaking. Met Film School is based at Ealing Studios, where the phenomenal Downton Abbey, Star Wars 2, Notting Hill and Shaun Of The Dead were filmed. To attend this school would be the opportunity of a life time but unfortunately course fees are £22,000 a year and with my parents support and the bit of government funding that I can receive I still would need to fundraise the rest and any help that I can get would be beyond appreciated. This is a link to donate to the cause and absolutely anything would mean the world to me, if you want me to try and hula hoop whilst doing a handstand dressed up as a Crayola crayon in return for a £1 donation or anything then just say it because every penny counts. Even if you aren’t in a position yourself to make a small donation then please could you take a second to reblog this so that I can get the word around, thank you so much!
Here’s a gif of a piggy dancing to try and make you happier and increase your likelihood of donating slightly:
Radical Discipleship - a necessary priority.
The most urgent need of the Church today is radical discipleship. We do not need more things to entertain us. We do not need more methods or gimmicks or catchier songs. We need people who are radically committed to the person of Jesus Christ. We need people to reach out to those who do not know Him and lead them into deep, viable relationship with the Father in heaven. We need less Christians in name, and more radically committed followers.
DEAR TUMBLR STAFF,
My friend, obese-whale, just today had her blog deleted by you guys and I don’t think you understand what you’ve done.
That blog was her life, her way of finding a release.
She’s refusing to remake for reasons unknown, but honestly tumblr staff you guys need to open your fucking eyes because it clearly said “i am not pro ana and if you are then i suggest you get the fuck off my blog bye”
Reblog and maybe they’ll see it. I’m making a petition and sending a long ass email too.
I need michelle backkk.
Help Urgently Needed.
I was told yesterday by my housemate I have two weeks to find a new place and move out.
I still can not find a job of any sort, paying or volunteer, and I’ve been looking for two months roughly. No one I know is willing to move in with me due to finance issues or having already got a place or such, so I’ll be out on my own.
Moving back home is not an option for me due to reasons.
Basically, I need money. I have commissions still going. There’s a donate button on my page. If you can’t help with money, please reblog. get the signal out for me. Please.
I honestly have no idea what else to say on the matter. I dislike having to ask people for money.
Help Needed: Airfare to see my dying grandfather
Content Note: Description of medical procedures
So, one of the reasons I have been MIA is that I have been dealing with some pretty serious family issues, one of which being that my grandfather has been very, very ill.
For my entire life, my grandfather has had some thing called an ostomy, which means that he doesn’t pass waste in a medically normative way. Instead, doctors surgically created an opening in his abdomen and attached the end of his intestines to it so waste could drain out via the opening.
And, you know, my grandfather, being the tough, stoic old codger that he is, has never really let it bother him. It was a fact of life. So what? Both my grandparents were first-generation Americans (their parents were off the boat from Italy), my grandfather fought in World War II (some stories are just…indescribable), and my grandfather worked as a carpenter his entire career (and when he retired, he did things like install siding on my mother’s house when he was in his 70’s…you know, just to keep busy). An ostomy meant nothing to him other than he went to bathroom a little differently than most people.
That changed about a week ago when he realized that it wasn’t draining like it should. He went to the doc, and to make a long story short, they said he had some blockages. They waited for them to drain naturally, and they didn’t. And he started to decline. Very, very rapidly. They tried to do laproscopic surgery on him, and it didn’t work - they had to open him up completely. What they found was that what they thought were “blockages” were actually areas where the bowel had twisted, causing tissue to die. They had to cut out parts of his intestine, and then piece him back together.
On top of that, last night in the ICU, he managed to pull out his feeding tube (twice!) and, in the process, aspirated fluid.
The bottom line?
The doctors are taking it minute by minute and don’t know if he will survive.
My mother is planning on going to see him, but if I want to go, I need to pay for my own plane ticket. Being out of work, there is no way I can afford that. The cheapest plane ticket I have found is $337.
I also want to be able to bring my son, which would be another couple hundred dollars. My grandfather is the only “grandfather” figure he has ever known. Christmas 2011 (the last time we saw him), my 94-year-old grandfather got down on his hands and knees to play trains with my son…They are best buddies. And I would just like a chance for both of us to get to say goodbye.
If you can help - even $5 - the PayPal button is to the right in my profile bar. I would be grateful beyond words. And, of course, signal boosts always appreciated.
If I don’t raise the money, or if, gods forbid, he dies before the money is raised (yeah, it’s that urgent and that serious) I will gladly refund anyone who requests it.
