Gofundme! Features for All!

Sun Apr 6, 2014, 12:26 AM

EDIT: Winner of the giveaway is: LaPetiteBallerine. Congrats! I'll be posting a feature for everyone that participated in the next few days :) I still need this info to be shared, so I may do something else with it. Stay tuned.

EDIT: Thank you for the response thus far! :tighthug: Please be sure to share this on your social media sites, if possible. Facebook, twitter, tumblr, anything at all. :heart:

Hey all. I had a few people suggest to me that I create a gofundme in order to raise some funds for my bills. I would really appreciate it if you could spread this journal around. I really don't have much to offer, but I figured perhaps doing a giveaway may help spread the message a bit

First here is the link to the gofundme page:

Here is the story from the gofundmepage, in case you want to read it.

"Hello! I thank you for visiting my page and taking a minute of your time to read my story.
In the last year, I lost my home, lost all my possessions, and all of my money savings due to an unexpected situation and because of that certain situation, I was forced to move across the country.

After I moved, I started having problems with my lungs. Eventually, I became so sick that I was in and out of doctors for months at a time. Most recently I was diagnosed with chronic lung problems and there isn't much that can be done about it. Due to my lung illness and back problems, I can't work around animals/certain air pollutants or lift anything too heavy. Before I got really ill, I was a dog groomer, and that was all I really knew how to do. It's extremely hard to find a job in the area that I live that fits those certain conditions. It took me over six months just to find a seasonal job which, unfortunately, I had been laid off of.

I have literally sold everything that I owned, including my camera, which was one of the only source of stress relief for me. The few things that I did still own, got lost in the mail, including my hard drive which had 10 years of photography, music, and writing on it. It's been a rather devastating year.

Due to this, and not being able to have a steady job in the past year, my expenses have really piled up, from the doctors and just from day to day living. I could really use some help so I can get back on my feet.
Again, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit, and I really appreciate any help. Every donation counts, no matter how small."

Once again, here is the link to the gofundme page.

I love you all, thanks for the support!

I am very grateful for your kindness in spreading the word. I wish I could hand out points to everyone that helped, but I don't have that many. :/

Even if I'm probably late I hope I helped. I don't have any Facebook or Twitter tho, only dA DX
And if I win, which has only a slight chance but eh what's to lose for hoping, you could keep 50 :points: from the prize :)
Here;s my journal (sorry if the BG is too distracting): irl-snowqueenrarity.deviantart…
