WHAT IS GUITAR MASH?

A movement. From metal shredders to acoustic aficionados, Guitar Mash uses live events and social media to create opportunities for amateur and professional guitarists to play together.

Guitar Mash was founded in 2012 with the goal of creating opportunities for people to be actively involved in music, and to make music with other people.  It was founded on understanding the guitar to be The Great Connector, that which gathers people around the proverbial campfire.  What began as an untested experiment in communal music-making grew with the beautiful leadership of our musical director Mark Stewart into the acclaimed Inaugural Benefit Event at City Winery November 2012, and a series of “Campfire Jams” around the New York area, as well as stints at events like Make Music NY.

In addition to connecting amateur and professional musicians, Guitar Mash has helped people rediscover their potential to create and has inspired many to reacquaint themselves with their guitars.

Hi everyone!

idk why i hate asking for help so much but i do, and i keep putting off updating and keeping up with my wheelchair fund. However, my physical condition is getting a lot worse, I won’t be able to even see a rheumatologist until February 28th. I have only received 90$ to fund a 500$ chair 

I need a wheel chair to just get around the house; I need a wheelchair to be able to work - I am barely making rent as it is. if any of you can donate anything, even a dollar, to my fundraiser found [here] I would be so happy.

even if you can’t donate, if you could reblog this post and/or share the fundraising on other social media accounts that would also be very helpful, the more who see it the more of a chance i will get donations.

I am also going to start making drawings to those who donate, and I will post the information for that soon

All right, so I'm not used to asking for help, but I'm in a bind, and I really don't know where else to turn! First off--hello! My name's Emryn. I'm a mentally ill, transgender individual that recently moved out of my home state in order to get out of a toxic environment. I have been staying with...

Okay!! I know I’ve been inactive for a month, and this might shed some light on why! Any and all help would be so greatly appreciated–even just a reblog to spread the word!! 

Walking is a luxury...

I hate doing this.  Sincerely.  I’ve always been the one to say ‘I don’t need help’.  But now I do.  Some of you know that I am a bilateral amputee.  So is my mother.  Recently, we’ve come into hard times with the fact that our prostheses are no longer helping us, but hindering us.  I’ve lost weight, both of our prosthetics are old…the list goes on.  I’ve got wire sticking out of mine, and it’s rigged to the point where I’m not sure I’m going to be standing on my feet much longer.  This comes at a poor time as it is the end of the year, deductibles for insurance will be rolling over, I owe tuition for Physician Assistant School…and the insurance companies have told us that our prosthetics are luxury items.  Not Necessities.  I don’t know about you, but walking is a necessity, especially for a future physician assistant.

So to try and help pay deductibles (and possible court fees for fighting the insurance company), I’ve set up a a YouCaring.  I can’t do much to help if you choose to donate…but I can post progress pictures & videos to show you that the money donated is going where it is needed.

If you can’t donate?  That’s perfectly okay too!  please, just signal boost!  Again, the link is HERE.

And below is a picture of me!

Emergency Situation - Please read and share!

My mom has diabetes and needs medical treatment urgently to prevent long-term complications - but she can’t work due to her bad health and so she can’t afford treatment.

I (her daughter) will start a new job in January 2017, so i can support her financially but it won’t pay me until the end of the month and my mom’s health can’t wait for so long.

It’s an emergency situation. The diabetes has already started to damage her blood vessels in the eye - this can result in blindness if she doesn’t get medical help. The complications could also affect her kidneys and heart. I’m really worried about her.
Please help! Even a small donation (or sharing the fundraiser) would be really appreciated.

Here’s my fundraiser. If you prefer, you can also ask me for my paypal link (via tumblr messager).

Thankyou so much!

Today is the final day the “Brothers From Another Mother” shirts are available at the discounted price of $14.  They will still be available, but at the standard price of $20.   Visit https://www.teepublic.com/user/wesocorgi to order today!

The artwork is by @corinnaschlachter with inspiration from @marcel-lecorgi and I with our never ending quest to finally get together in the fluff.  100% of proceeds will be donated to charities on both sides of the pond; in the US CorgiAid, Inc. and in the UK The Cinnamon Trust.  International shipping is available!

Please help me save Chrom!!! -updated-

Hey guys! Thanks for all your help. Chrom got his surgery and has been doing well ever since. He’s a big happy cat now thanks to you guys. Again thank you sooo much.

Hey, Ina here. I’m sorry for this, but I’m in desperate need of help. 

Chrom has been in and out of the vet for the past 2 months. He has been suffering from chronic urinary blockages back to back. These urinary blockages only happen to male cats and causes them extreme pain and can even lead to death if the cat is unable to urinate. Due to all these emergency vet visits my family has already dished out over $2,000 trying to treat these blockages and since they are rapidly reoccurring the doctor suggested Chrom to get the perineal urethrostomy (P.U. surgery) for cats, which essentially widens his urethra so he can pass any blockage. He already had his 3rd blockage in just of June,13th and is in dire need of this surgery.

Unfortunately, we cannot afford this $3000 surgery and my parents are thinking of putting him to sleep. Chrom is only 4 YEARS OLD and has plenty of time left in this world. I DO NOT want to euthanize him just because we cannot afford a simple surgery.

My step brother made a gofundme here to help raise some money. I’ve only have $500 left in my emergency savings and would really appreciate the help. Even if you can’t donate, please reblog and share this around. I’m seriously determined to help save my sweet prince, Chrom.

Thank you so much for taking your time to read this. Your help is much appreciated.  ; A ;

rough text, huh?

this is how my father talks to me when he decides he doesn’t like me anymore, and because i’m asking for my money which unfortunately only he has access to right now, he once again does not like me. :)

i need out of this town. i need out of this state. i need, mostly, away from this. he has said mean shit along these lines to me since i was 11 years old and i’m tired of feeling pushed around and afraid of him.

would you help me do that?

u may also be asking urself, why is ur dad so mad at u, salem?

thats me in the middle, talking into the bullhorn, doing what i love even during the times that it hurts the most.

i’m 24 years old and have been organizing protests, vigils, etc since 2012 and he’s finally mad because his friends don’t like it. yes, you guessed it, he is yelling at me for supporting blm and for being an organizer in my lgbtq community locally. especially the latter, bc i am Recognizable.

so yeah, help me move tf away from this mess and into a new life where i can… continue to do this! and live in relative peace w/ my four beautiful cats, bc i love them and i love to work w/ my communities and facilitate healing, action, and education

Hi everyone, I’m sorry to ask but I need your help!

I’ve created a fundraiser HERE and more detail about the situation can be found there, but to summarise:

I am a disabled trans person in an incredibly violent and abusive situation which has had repercussions for both my mental and physical health. The situation is rapidly deteriorating; my mother and I desperately need a safe place to live. We are both disabled and unable to work, and my abuser has total control over our current income, this is the only way I can get the money together so that we can leave.

If I felt I could do this all on commissions I would, but the situation is now life threatening and we need to leave as soon as possible.

Thank you SO MUCH to anyone that commissions me or donates!!!

If you can’t afford to help financially, reblogging would also help so much! I’ll try to follow everyone that reblogs this (via my main @spokenofthesoul) since that’s all I can offer besides my art for your help.

Im underage and in need of an abortion
Hi I am 16 years old. I live in the state of Georgia where if you're underage like me you need a parent to be notified at least 24 hours prior to an abortion. I hope to get a judicial bypass on that. I had unprotected sex on 6/16/16. The very next morning less then 24 hours later I took Plan-b one...

This person is trying to crowdfund an abortion procedure, so if anyone can help out, it would be super appreciated! Any little bit counts. I’ll be making a donation myself after work. Even if you can’t donate, a reblog to get the word out would be very helpful!

please help us save our Buscat

as you might be aware, Buscat is in hospital with a blocked urethra (he cant pee) right now and we might not be able to pay for the treatment that he needs to save his life, since this has come only a month after Dorian’s emergency surgery.
If you can spare any money please donate to my paypal

Professor Albus Dumblecat

Bus has an ongoing problem which causes his urinary tract to become blocked whenever he is stressed. This is a problem for a lot of male cats but bus has an unusually narrow urethra which means the slightest inflammation will it cause it to swell completely shut.

This current stay is the third time he has been completely blocked and the 7th time he has been rushed to the vets because of this. the other times he could have his bladder expressed manually without the need of a catheter.

Urinary blockages have already hospitalised him with a catheter twice before, for four days each, and if we don’t catch it within 24 hours his kidneys will shut down and he will die, because it starts a chain reaction that he can’t stop on his own.

He gets blocked, he can’t pee, the urine builds up in his bladder, over stretching it and causing muscle spasms that lock his bladder and urethral sphincters down, and his urine becomes very concentrated. The concentrated urine becomes highly acidic, forms crystals and irritates the lining of his bladder and his urethra, causing them to become inflamed and swollen, and leading to infection. The inflamation causes his urethra to swell shut, but if it does go down enough to pee, the crystals formed will cut and scratch it or cause their own blockages, starting the cycle again.
The only way to stop the cycle is to catheterize him when he becomes blocked so that the urine can escape before becoming too concentrated, as well as muscle spasm medication and anti-inflammatories while he is catheterised.

After changing vets and trying a range of long term managements and STILL having him block up like this, it looks like his physiological problems (his urethra being too small and his tendency to muscle spasm when stressed) are too much, and we can’t manage his condition without surgery like we were hoping.
thunderstorms are enough to start it even with anxiety medication, urinary stress perscription food and feliway, so the only other option left is a perineal urethrostomy, which basically cuts off the penis and the too-narrow part of his urethra then re-routes the urethra so it comes out a new, wider hole. 

donate

The problem is after spending the last four months taking Bus back and forth from the vets, and Dorian’s emergency major surgery (the last time we rushed bus to the vet dorian got into my sewing supplies which I hadn’t put away properly, and ate an embroidery needle, puncturing his esophogas and requiring 11 days in hospital to save his life) we have exhausted our financial resources.

As of today (november 22nd) without donations we can only afford to keep bus in the vets till tomorrow morning, let alone the ~$3k he needs for the operation to stop it happening.

Without the operation we are relying on the hope that bus will pull through and recover enough in under 24h to pee on his own and come home. If he comes home without peeing on his own, he will die. 

I hate to ask, but if you’ve ever laughed at my stories about Bus or found comfort in my writing or advice, please consider donating to us or signal boosting this post so I can afford to give them the treatment they need.

As incentive im offering plush gifts to anyone who donates $100 or more to my paypal,

contact me via tumblr, skype (hollowedskin) or email > hollowedskin at gmail dot com. Requests are as i can do them, but i cant afford new materials so its with what I have in my fabric drawer.

Here are some of the things i’ve made so you can see what type of things I can do.

Also the espeon is for sale here if you would like to help out and also get something to own out of it

Thank you.

I will be posting updates on his condition tagged as #buscat update and timed and dated, whenever I know anything new. Thank you

Emergency Cat Help

Hey guys! My name is Jesse, and I need help rehoming cats from a hoarding situation in Turlock, CA before I move out-of-state at the end of May 2016.

FUNDRAISER LINK

The cats are well-socialized and mostly healthy (there are some with age-related dental problems and some that have urinary tract issues, and because of the area they all have fleas). Most are spayed/neutered. They range in age from 6 months to 12 years old. Details and photos of individual cats can be found HERE, though some information is out-of-date.

Who is hoarding the cats?

An older woman. She can’t physically or financially care for them, but also hasn’t taken my advice about adopting them out via PetFinder or other sites.

Why can’t the local shelter or rescue organizations help?

Because the stray and feral cat problem here is so serious that none of them have space. Here are some things I’ve been told when calling around:

  • “We only pick up ferals and animals that are dying.” - Animal Control
  • “We euthanize all kittens under 4 weeks old because no one’s available to foster them.” - Animal Control
  • “We’re not taking cats that are black, brown, or gray because they’re not adoptable enough.” - a rescue
  • “We’ve adopted out less than a dozen cats in the last year.” - a rescue with cats on display in a major pet store

I also don’t have a car or local friends who can drive, so I’m very limited in terms of where I can look for help. The best I’ve been able to do is get most of the cats spayed/neutered. Unfortunately I’m low-income, and so even if I find places that have openings, surrendering cats is a problem because there’s a fee for that.

How can I help?

  • signal boost this post
  • contact me about adopting a cat
  • contact me about fostering a cat
  • donate money for travel costs or surrender fees in case I find rescues with openings
