Click here to support Helen's College Tuition by Helen Tang
Hi everyone, my name is Helen, and I am a current freshman at Syracuse University. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, where I've been for all my life. I learned at a young age that my family was different from most others. My parents immigrated to America on a family reuinification visa...

Hi guys, again….

So I know I haven’t been active lately and the reason is because I’ve been fighting with my school’s financial aid office for months regarding my aid. Phone call after phone call, email after email, and multiple visits to the aid and billing office has left me emotionally and mentally drained, and desperate for help. 

Most of you don’t know this, but I come from a low-income and first-generation family. My father has been unemployed since 2012 and my mother recently lost her job and my stepfather, who was a major contributor to her household income. My school expects me to pay 6,400 out of my own pocket, which I do not have. When I asked them for help, they resorted to using fear to force me to pay an amount that I do not and will not have, by threatening to cancel my classes for this semester. I am currently still in the works of negotiating my aid, but I fear that my efforts will not help. 

As a low-income student, I know not everyone has the money to donate. I also know that there are plenty of other students with the same situation as me, who are desperate for help as well. I’m asking you to please donate, or even just reblog my campaign to help me out. If you want to read the whole story, you can click on the link. 

If you do donate or spread word around about my campaign, I promise your efforts will not go unnoticed. All the money donated will go straight to my tuition fee. If you’ve read this, thank you so much. Each and every one of you mean a lot to me and even if you can’t donate, please reblog this. I love you all so much, and I hope you guys have an amazing day. 

I desperately need help

My name is V. My partner and I are trans, disabled, and homeless.

I work as a server at IHOP but school has just started and my boss cut my hours, so tips AND my paychecks are small. My partner just got a job, but it will be several weeks until they get a paycheck and even more until we get enough together to get indoors.

We have a 2 year old son that we have hardly been able to see in several weeks because we have no food and it’s too cold for him to sleep at night. We have no resources and nobody who is willing or able to help us, and winter is fast approaching. We are desperate. I am desperate. I am BEGGING. We need to get funds together to get an apartment before the winter.

I can’t stress this enough. We NEED to be indoors before winter, and ideally, we should be indoors before October. We live in Alaska and winter/fall is bitterly cold and miserable, especially at night, obviously. It’s already dropping below 50 at night. We sleep under 3 thick blankets and in layers and we are still freezing.

Our goal is to try and get $2000 together, for deposit and first months rent. The cost of living here is very high and we need at least that much to have any guarantee of getting a place before winter. My paypal is Please, please donate and/or signal boost this. Thank you for reading.

SoundExchange Pays Out Record $88 Million

In it’s largest distribution to date, SoundExchange announced that it sent checks totalling nearly $88 million to more than 18,300 payees during the third quarter of 2011. Total distributions made by SoundExchange in 2010 were $249.2 million, up from $155.5 million in 2009.

The funds are statutory performance royalties paid to recording artists and recording copyright owners  by internet radio, satellite radio and cable TV music-only channels. The announcement comes just days after global research publication Music & Copyright reported that SoundExchange is the “global leader” in the collection and distribution of sound recording performance royalties.

Nobody in this show understands that Callie’s feelings for Brandon are/were real and I get it, because they’ve never gotten to see it because of reasons, but I desperately want them to realize how much she really does genuinely love Brandon.

I’m on mobile so i can’t make this post look very organized, but I need some money help, which I hate asking for.

Last week I was in a bad car crash because someone turned and slammed into me because she “didn’t see me” and my car is now totaled. I just bought this car a little under a year ago and was only able to afford its payments because I sold them my old car for $1,000. Now the person who hit me won’t pay for my rental after next Monday (it’s Tuesday right now) and I have until then to get my loan cleared, send in all paperwork, and find and buy a new car. And the insurance may not give us enough to cover my remaining loan, which I cannot pay all at once out of pocket.

My mom and i have next to no savings. I am barely paid over minimum wage 20-28 hours a week and my family is poor and can’t help me. I really can’t handle any more money stress and I’m suicidal over losing my car and being put in this situation.

I don’t like taking money for nothing so please consider commissioning me over just donating:

Proof of accident:




It’s digital pieces this time!! And im raising my prices because i realized that if i have them so low, it’s like disrespecting my own work. It was only recently that i saw that my art is worth more than it was in the old commission post.

But anyways, a lot of this money will be going to art supplies for school, and my own needs/wants because I feel bad about constantly asking parents for money. This will be going on while I still look for a job, and will most likely continue when I have a job. It will also go to working on more items for my tictail store.

If you can’t commission me, I understand. But I would also appreciate signal boosts!
Capitol One to Pay $210 Million Fine for Misleading Customers on Credit Card Fees

Wow… this is too real… I cannot count on two hands the amount of Capital One envelopes I’ve ripped up since I received my Bachelor’s degree… I can only image'n the amount of people that actually opened and read that garbage thinking they were getting a deal. Beware of Capital One, Chase, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and every other crooked bank…

[ In between commissions, packing / moving and exhausting medical appointments, I thought I deserved a little break to finally finish this ]

heyyyy so i need to more commissions! i finally have my laptop back after having it fixed for a while, but then my car decided to break down yesterday and it turns out that my insurance does NOT cover it and i need to pay out of pocket

idk how much exactly it is but i’m sure it’s going to be well over $300

so i’m opening up 10 commission slots! basically how this works is that you send me an ask if you want a slot, then i give u my commissions email, and then we go from there.

i have more options than what’s shown up here, but the only things i can NOT do are custom pins and charms (things that need to be physically mailed) because i won’t have a car until god knows when

here’s my commissions page for prices and options!
