Hey! So a lot of you guys who have been following me for a bit know that I’m in a bit of a tough spot in my life right now, and have been for a while now! As such, I’ve tried a few different ways of raising and saving money, and you all have been so incredibly helpful to me (And I’ll never be able to thank you all enough!)!
To fill in people who aren’t caught up on what’s been going on, I’m a queer young adult who has been living here in ATL for a while now in hopes of immigrating, though I lacked the funds. Things went bad a while back, and events happened that resulted in me planning to go back to canada for the sake of my mental health, amongst other things. It wasn’t long after, however, that I wound up being unable to live in my house in ATL any longer due to family and financial complications. In the few months i’ve been homeless, however, I’ve finally come to terms with what it is I really want to do; that thing being staying here in the US with my friends and family (I know, surprising right?)!
It’s already basically confirmed that my mother will help me through the process of filing under her as a relative as long as I can be the one to get the money for it ($1,500).
Now that’s ultimately not a lot of money, but keeping in mind that I cant legally work, on top of being homeless (meaning my money is going towards other things besides immigration, such as living costs and trying to find a home with some of my also soon to be homeless friends) makes it very hard to save it. Furthermore, I would have to save all of this money before my 20th birthday in November because i only have until I’m 21 to do this! I literally can not stress the importance of that enough!
🎶 What I’m offering!
Now unlike some people on this website, I don’t have the talent to offer things like commissions or art rewards! However, for those who don’t know, I am a ukulele player! And with the instrument slowly gaining more and more popularity (Thanks 21p and SU!) I can offer online (over skype) lessons for beginners - intermediate learners for the fair price of $25 /h! (That’s cheaper than you would pay for lessons at your local music store).
That’s as many lessons as you want, all 1 hour each for only $25 learning the basics, chords, and songs without even having to leave the comfort of your bedroom! (cool!)
I wish I could offer more, but unfortunately as far as my talents go, this is the only one that’s lesson worthy!
Great! Shoot me an ask HERE, or feel free to shoot me an email at email@example.com and we can set that up ASAP!
Don’t want lessons but still want to donate? Awesome! People like you make the world go ‘round! Feel free to drop any donations over paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org !
In the event that I Should raise more than what I initially needed, the remainder will go towards finding a home for my friends and I / misc. living costs!
Have any questions about where the money is going / progress / my story? Again, feel free to shoot me an ask HERE!
Thank you all again so much, I don’t know where I would be without all of your help! Please remember to signal boost this if you can! We all very much appreciate it!
