I’m running out of options here, so I’m going to tell you my story and hope that you will pass it on to others. Please do not feel any obligation to donate anything to me; simply reblogging this post will mean the world.
Here’s what I’m currently facing:
Back in November, my boyfriend’s ex-roommate abruptly moved to Florida when he found out that his dad had cancer. Because my boyfriend could not afford to pay the entire rent on his own, and because this was so sudden with no way to find someone to move in and take the ex-roommate’s place, my boyfriend was going to be homeless.
None of his friends were willing to let him stay with them, even temporarily, and his family is abusive, so he couldn’t stay with them. So, naturally, I took him in. We moved his belongings into my apartment and everything was pretty great for about a month. That’s when some maintenance guys came in to look at the bathtub in my bathroom. They saw his stuff, decided that 2 people were living there, and they reported it to the main office. They served us with a notice that said my boyfriend had to be out within 24 hours or they would evict me.
A good friend of ours took my boyfriend’s belongings back to their apartment for storage. I began frantically looking for another apartment, one where we could live together peacefully. I shelled out $500 to keep my boyfriend in a hotel and, luckily, we found an apartment and signed a new lease. That is where we live now.
However, I’m still under the lease for the old apartment and have been trying to get rid of the place for 3 months now. I have had several dozen inquires about the place, about 10 people come look at it, and 3 people apply. All 3 people have been turned down by the main office for whatever reason. I am at the end of my rope.
Together, he and I make about $850 per month. Both rents together total $875. This does not account for utilities, food, cell phone bills, medication, and miscellaneous expenses. We both take multiple medications for various conditions, both mental and physical.
My savings is almost gone and I don’t know what to do. We only have enough money to feed us and pay both of these rents for 1 more month. None of his relatives will help and none of mine are able to. This is why I am asking for your help, tumblrites. If you are able to donate, even $1, it will help us so much.
I will be graduating with a Master’s degree in May, and I plan on immediately finding a full time job. When that happens, I will gleefully pay back each and every one of you, and probably write you a letter, and possibly kiss your beautiful faces a lot. I would be happy to write you smutty fanfiction, or make you origami flowers, or do whatever you want as a thank you for doing this for us.
He means the world to me and I need to keep him in a safe place. That’s all I want.
