Remaking this post because honestly the other one floating around was very poorly worded and didn’t explain anything.
Reddit has a number of communities dedicated to helping people out financially. Although I’m not personally familiar with the site and how these subreddits function, the success rate seems to be higher on there than it is on tumblr.
While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with you using a website you are familiar with to ask for help, Tumblr isn’t the best when it comes to helping people out money wise; with that being said, here are some alternatives that may work better in your favor (Note: these WILL have stricter rules in place than posting a donation link to tumblr would- they have this to prevent scamming but it may bar people from receiving assistance in certain situations so please keep this in mind).
Monetary/Necessity Assistance Subs:
- /r/Assistance - Req: Registered account / 300 Combined Karma
- /r/Charity - Req: Registered account 30 days old / 300 Comment Karma / Crowdfunding links only (include a description in your post)
- /r/FoodPantry - Req: Account 90 days / 300 Comment Karma / Actively posting in non-charity subs for 90 days
- r/gofundme - Req: Account 30 days / 300+ Comment Karma / 1 submission per user
- /r/RandomActsOfPetFood - Req: Account 90 days / 500 Comment Karma / No monetary requests / Must wait 1 month between each request personally posted
- /r/AlmostHomeless - No visible reqs; No donation posts
- r/freelance - No visible reqs; Soliciting work, links and self-promotion banned
- r/homeless - No reqs; Must be homelessness-related; Soliciting donations banned
- r/transitions - No visible reqs
If you know of any other helpful subs/websites feel free to add!
