ooc. okay guys?? i hate to ask for help but unfortunately this monday my life got SUPER fucked. my parents were unfortunately arrested. i have three younger siblings. a sister, who is seventeen. a brother, who turned fifteen this month, and the youngest of us who turned six this august. because i am eighteen i THANKFULLY have custody over them. this is a very temporary thing if i cannot get my siblings and myself out to california where it turns out we have family ( i have been lied to by BOTH my parents about our extended family situation for years ).
for now my god-brother is trying his best to help us. he also doesn’t have steady work. he’s trying but trying is not good enough in the current situation. i was up until this moment COMPLETELY focusing on school at the request of my parent’s, who just wanted me going to college. right now i genuinely don’t even know if i’ll be able to keep at that. especially if i can get us to California, as i currently live in florida. complete opposite sides of the COUNTRY. schooling will have to go on a pause no matter what i do. my future that i worked my ASS off to get to, has basically just gone down the drain. as of the moment all i can do is pray that i can keep my family together for as long as possible.
right now the extended family has paid for a ticket so i can fly out to california and meet people. i want to know for sure what i am moving my family halfway across the country into. this is a list of the things i need to able to afford and QUICK.
- a plane ticket BACK here to florida. after that money to fix up a van so that i can get me and my siblings back across the country but with what little possessions we can bring with us.
- money to pay the bills. legally our landlord can’t kick us out because of the extenuating circumstances. he CAN evict us but that’s going to take awhile. in the meantime we still need to keep the power on, the wifi on, food in our mouths, the water running, insurance paid and the phone bill paid.
- THE PHONE BILL IS CRUCIAL. this is the only way we can keep in contact with our mother, who has to make collect calls to us. we need to buy a phone for the fifteen year old so can also be open to getting calls form her at all times. also, with how many calls she and my father have to make to us the bill is REALLY STARTING TO STACK UP. it’s only been a few days, since this happened monday but i don’t have much money in my account to start with. we cannot keep this up for much longer at all.
- we also need to get legal aid for ourselves as fast as possible. time is already starting to run out on us.
i have nowhere NEAR the amount of money i need for all of this. the thing is we need to get going and we need that to happen SOON. or else i risk losing my siblings forever. please, if you can donate anything to help keep my family together i would just?? be so appreciative. i can’t offer anything at the moment but gratitude and perhaps more details of my situation if you’d contact me privately.
paypal SUCKS and banned my account but please if you can!! suggest a site like paypal or donate to me using google wallet that would be great. for google wallet as long as you have a gmail, a card of some sort, and my email address you can donate ( my address is email@example.com ). it works JUST like paypal. EXCEPT THERE ARE NO FEES TO SEND OR RECEIVE MONEY!!! I WILL GET 100% OF THE MONEY YOU SEND IF YOU CHOOSE TO SEND SOME. if you can NOT donate i completely understand. times are rough for everyone. i simply ask if you could spread this around for me, so that i can get as much help as possible.
love and thanks, blue
