I’m in a bit of a bind, and I could use any help I can get!

Hey, my name’s Justin, and I was in a three car collision this past Monday (September 26th). I was the only one injured, and no citations were issued, but I’m still stuck in a pretty awful situation. I have a pretty low income, and my insurance policy doesn’t cover me in case of an accident, so I’m left without a car, and I live in an area with little to no public transportation, so I have no way to get to work.

Currently, I’ve got 3 broken ribs, two fractures on my pelvis, a few broken teeth and more than a handful of cuts and bruises, and also a laceration on my spleen that caused some minor internal bleeding, so I may not be able to work for the next 3-5 weeks, which is a huge issue. My medical bills should be covered by my health insurance, so the only things I really need assistance with is getting a car, and paying for prescriptions.

Even if you just give this post a little signal boost, it would mean the world to me, but if you find yourself able to donate, the link to my Paypal is here, and here’s a link to the newspaper article.

Thank you for your time, even if you can’t contribute, a single reblog goes a long way.

PLEASE HELP

I never thought I’d make a post like this, but here I am.

My friend Kelly is 16 and has 2 years to live. 

Kelly is an inspiring, artistic, clever and beautiful girl.

She has been diagnosed with Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) in October 2015. It’s a rare, aggressive cancer that usually begins in the abdomen. It’s so rare that only 20 adolescents in USA are diagnosed with it a year.

Our friend Kelly has been through 9 rounds of chemotherapy but the tumors are close to her liver. The operation is not possible in UK.

THERE IS HOPE.

There is hope in  The University College Hospital @ London, The MSK @ New York and possibly Christies @ Manchester.

The surgery in USA is not covered by insurance and so we have to found it. We need you to help.  We need £1million for this to happen. We have 80 days.  We need help.

guys, I need your help. I came across this page on instagram of a 10 month old baby in need. Maria has Hemophagocytic Lympho Histiocytosis, or HLH, which is a rare inherited disease of the immune system which can eventually lead to brain damage. She is currently being treated in Lotus Hospital, Hyderabad. She needs to have her bone marrow transplanted, which can cost INR 40 lakhs, or $60,000 USD. On January 4th, Maria’s mother must pay $30,000 to $40,000. Maria’s mother has even gone as far as donating her kidney to make money. She struggles to pay for her mother’s medicine as well as the surgery, because her mother suffers from Sjogren’s Syndrome. Time is running out, and Maria’s mother still does not have the funds to pay for her treatment. If they do not pay by January 4th, the hospital will not perform the surgery.

So no doubt quite a few people have heard about Front Porch Step the musician, and what he’s done recently. For those of you who don’t know he’s an acoustic musician, who has sexually harassed and targeted many of his fans- resulting in him being kicked off warped tour because he does not create a safe environment for young female fans.

His name is Jake Mcelfresh, and now he’s trying to sue his girlfriend claiming that she ‘slandered’ him and ruined his reputation- which was his own trashy fault because of his actions against underage girls. She needs money to help get a lawyer to fight against him and his own lawyers, but not only that he is trying to make her pay for all the court costs.

Please at least reblog this, and if any of you can donate because she’s close to getting what she needs to defend herself. Real Friends is amazing for speaking out in this issue, I’ve seen them make many comments on Front Porch Step and how he’s not created the safe, much needed escape for fans looking to music to help/comfort them. please donate/reblog to stand against this man

I really hope this gets notes, please stand up for this woman and all the girls he’s harassed- we need to stand up for our fellow gals.

My name is Ben and I am a disabled, trans eighteen year old living on my own. At seventeen I was kicked out due to a fight with my aunt whom I had lived with since 10. She was and continues to be severely manipulative and mentally ill. Our encounters traumatized me up until I was forced out. My aunt handed me all of my legal documents and social security checks and told me to find somewhere else. I had no idea how to live independently and I am still learning. I eventually wound up staying with my great grandmother who was very controlling and overbearing. After realizing I couldn’t handle living on her couch anymore, I ended up moving in with another aunt who demands rent, which is more than half of my SSI check. Rent does not include food or anything necessary for functional living. My “family” that I live with does not care about me and would rather take advantage of me instead, regularly asking me for money, stealing my medication and verbally abusing. I only receive about 200 dollars every month to pay for food, hygiene products, prescriptions, an overdue phone bill which my aunt refuses to pay, and transportation since I will never be able to drive. It is impossible for me to work right now while trying to balance my disability, high school and dealing with my family so I am raising money the only way I know how, by reaching out to you. With this money I hope to move into independent living where I can resolve most of these problems, finish high school, move onto college and start a new part of my life.

Cops Demolish Single Mom’s Home By Mistake, Destroy Children’s Christmas – Offer No Help


On Tuesday, Cherokee County Sheriff David Groves and his heroic team of militarized storm troopers descended on the home of a single mom and her four kids. Upon removing the mother and her four children from the house, police entered into a 20-hour-long standoff — with the empty house.

According to Sheriff Groves, police were looking for Doug Alexius, a suspect wanted on a misdemeanor count of assaulting a law enforcement officer and another drug-related charge. Upon entering the home, the team used a ‘hi-tech’ and expensive infrared camera that showed them Alexius was hiding in the attic. Incorrectly believing Alexius was in the attic, they backed out and a 20-hour long standoff ensued.

“Time is on our side,” the sheriff said during their heated standoff with an empty house. “We have the luxury of being able to rotate officers out. At some point, he’s going to have to come out of there.”

After not breaking things or killing anyone for 19 hours, the officers became restless, said to hell with the Sheriff’s strategy of waiting for him to come out, and proceeded to storm the home.

A SWAT truck with a battering ram attached was used to poke holes and tear apart the house in an attempt to drive the nonexistent suspect out. As deputies became unable to find him, they began taking their frustration out on couches, beds, lamps, clothing, toys, and even the family’s Christmas tree was ripped through a window and smashed to bits.

The entire time, Nita Lane, the homeowner, was trying to tell the cops that Alexius was not there and does not live there.

The sheriff, quite expectedly, remains unapologetic. Despite being told by the victim that Alexius was not in her house, Groves maintains that his officers acted in the best possible manner.

“Some may suggest you just rush in, and we could have cleared that house in a matter of minutes. But if there was a suspect in there and would have shot one of our officers or something else happened, and he was able to breach the perimeter and jeopardize the safety of the residents nearby, that’s not a risk I’m willing to take,” Groves continued entirely missing his own point.

Groves did eventually “rush in and clear the house.” Just because it took him 20-hours to decide to do it, doesn’t change that fact at all.

Instead of apologizing or offering to help clean up the mess he and his crony soldiers made, Groves refers the victim to some vague FBI program that allegedly cleans up after cops wrongly destroy a family’s home.

The Free Thought Project spoke with the victim’s neighbor, Vonda Macklin, who said the SWAT team, “left holes in ceiling, all the windows were smashed out, holes in were left in the side of the house” and they literally “ripped her Christmas tree apart,” using a set of claws on the front of a vehicle.

full story

Cops don’t care about people. They should remember that they deal with humans. Officers destroyed Christmas for this family, did nothing to help them, made no apologies and then even said that they acted in the best possible manner. It’s narcissism. Thank God they didn’t shot at Nita Lane and her children. It’s a shame! But sadly this case is even not surprising. Too many outrageous deeds was made by U.S. police lately.

I need help

Hey guys, now I wouldn’t normally do something like this but my situation is dire right now.

I’ve been kicked out of my house after hearing my parents tell me to ‘’leave my keys behind’’ and ‘’not to contact them at all’’, and I have no way of getting to college or buying food. I’m living with my boyfriend temporarily but his family can’t afford to pay for him to get to college (he’s on bursary), let alone me.

I have applied for bursary funds from the college but that can take weeks to process so in the mean time, i’m penniless.

I’m not asking for any specific amount of money, anything at all would help and go straight towards travel and food costs over the next few weeks. So please, if you see this and have any spare money, just inbox me and i’ll give you my paypal details. Remember, it can be any amount, every penny helps. If you have any questions, feel free to inbox me too, i’ll be happy to answer. 

If you can’t donate, please reblog this. I haven’t eaten properly in days and my coursework is due at the end of the month.

Thank you all so much, it really means a lot!

Sean Anderson Foundation donated $25,000 to Wayne State University’s HIGH (Helping Individuals Go Higher). The money was given to “provide short-term support to Wayne State students experiencing homelessness or precarious housing situations”.  

The mother of Big Sean, Myra Anderson, is the president of the foundation and spoke to how they hope to improve students’ lives:

“We see the HIGH Program as an important component of ensuring success at Wayne State, and we are proud to help strengthen its mission,” she said in a statement. “We aim to boost graduation rates at the university by providing support to students facing hardship.”

Big Sean is a native Detroiter who does the job our gov’t refuses to do. He cares about students and youth and supports them in any way possible.

The cancer has spread to my brain.

My name is Xia, and in November of 2014 I was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Cancer has been something I’ve feared since losing my father at a young age. I’ve taken extra care not to smoke or drink and thought that I was taking really good care of myself, but the thought of something genetic being passed down to me was always lingering.

I went into this misdiagnosed with displaced ribs but a month later a tumor the size of a softball was growing out of my back. My insurance wasn’t great, and it still isn’t, but an amazing doctor put in a lot of good work and found great options within my network to get my treatment started.

I started as Stage 4, with a lump on my back, and three more masses affecting my pancreas, liver and lungs.

The good news is that I’m winning. Or rather, I thought I was winning. Mid January, 2016, I started feeling nauseous all the time, threw up a lot and had what seemed like an everlasting headache. On the 22nd, I started having double vision, which led to an optometrist visit. New glasses made the headaches disappear, which made the nausea and vomiting disappear, but it didn’t do anything for the double vision.

The optometrist told me I was experiencing papilledema, which means that due to intracranial pressure, my optic disks are experiencing pressure. The cause of which is metastasis to my brain stem.

In between regular chemotherapy, one of the drugs I was taking wasn’t entirely effective and so three more tumors developed. They’re pushing my brain to one side and causing swelling, which is pressing my optic disks forward, which is why I have double vision.

And that means that I can no longer safely drive, safely work and have trouble seeing things clearly. Radiation therapy is an option, but in the time between sorting out disability and not working, my husband has become the sole earner in our little family, supporting two cats and me.

But unfortunately, that isn’t it. I have medical debt increasing by the minute, a student loan to pay off and credit card bills racking up. We are behind, and there’s plenty to  pay before we’re anywhere near even. My husband is now responsible for our insurance, rent, utilities, food and still needs to take care of himself on top of taking care of me.

I refuse to stop fighting, and neither will he.  After years of dating we got married last September, and we’ve been happy, despite our situation.

But we need help staying afloat. We will use anything we receive to pay bills, and to try and keep up on them. We don’t expect to be close to debt-free, but a little can go a long way when you feel like the deck is stacked against you.

Thank you for reading this, and taking the time to experience what I’m going through. Even if you can’t offer anything, it’ll help to share this fund and pass it around. I’d be very grateful. The more people that know about what I’m going through, the more people that can potentially donate even just one dollar to help us out.

Thank you.

You can donate here, and even if you have nothing to offer, please consider sharing this with your friends, either on tumblr, Facebook or Twitter. Thanks for taking to time out to even look, it’s very much appreciated.
