Hi! Sorry to be a bother again. I hate bringing this stuff up over and over but really this will be the last time in a while this is brought up. I just wanted to say that I put together an Indiegogo project for my surgery.
Insurance stuff finally got sorted and they arent going to cover it. So looks like its out of pocket for me! *cries*
Thought it might be better to put this all on one spot rather than a bunch of garbled txt posts T v T ;;;; sorry about the confusion and please pass this on if you have the time. this means a lot to me and i know everyone is tight on money and i don’t want to be an annoying burden- any little bit helps! The great thing about Indiegogo is that even if the goal isnt reached you still get what was raised so it will go along way in me saving up in the long term if this goes well :D Thank you!- even if its only reblogging or passing the word on via other social media.
Thank you everyone! I really mean it. You all have been too kind T A T <333333333333333333333333333333333333
Just one last reminder for all of this T v T thank you EVERYONE who has helped out so far! It all ends tomorrow/ 42 hrs from now.
If you happen to see this after the deadline you an always go to my main tumblr page and on the side bar there is a donate button. THank you everyone again! You’re all too kind for me to handle @_____@;;;; working on some osrt of thank you backgrounds for download or something in the free time btwn commissions n work T o T <3
Anti-rape wear. Its almost impervious to knife attacks and tearing/stretching.
The waist and thigh extremities of the garment are cut and tear resistant (the guy in the video cant cut them with industrial scissors) and they cannot be moved more than a few centimetres when locked into place, the forward area in front of the genitals is also reinforced.
Please, for the love of god, even if you cant donate, just spread this idea wherever you can, they need $50,000 to be able to manufacture it and they currently have just over $6,000 with 20 days left.
Go to igg.me/at/AR-Wear to donate and/or view their full info.
PLEASE PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THE SHIT OUT OF THIS I WANT MY NOTIFICATIONS FILLED WITH LIKES AND REBLOGS OF THIS
THIS IS SO FUCKING COOL! PLEASE WATCH THIS
I’ve been reading comments from people saying WE DON’T NEED THIS GIVE US WEAPONS. I’m guessing they aren’t from countries where rape of women is exceptionally common, particularly as a terroristic act of war. These garments, if they could be made available there for very little, would be a huge help.
Imgur, meet Wookie. You are her best last hope.
Her abusive ex owner threw a toy out a third story window and she jumped out after it. Now her right leg is paralyzed.
She’s not that bright. But she is very loving.
Her foster home can’t keep her much longer.
I dog sat her last weekend and she was AWESOME.
Philly area people: Please check out the link at petfinder. She REALLY deserves a good home
holy shit i want this dog i wish i lived in philly ;~;
Sorry. Trying to keep this blog art-pertinent, but now and then there’s a thing I can’t not reblog.
p-puppy ; - ;
My 2 year old daughter has made accusations of significant abuse and I cannot afford a lawyer to protect her.
This follower has been supportive and loyal through many issues in her own life. She has always shown herself to be an exceptional human being and a great mother.
Her 2 and-a-half year old daughter recently told on her rapist. Now her mom needs to protect her from her molester.
(please like and reblog to save Lily)
i heard about this girl a while back and i had no idea the situation was this bad jfc
they only have 175$ at the moment so if you could spread this and donate even a little bit i’m sure that would help a lot
For transgender (affirmed male, female-to-male & genderqueer) youth having a proper chest binder can be a life-saver - both mentally and physically - I know for me it was. Many transgender youth (under 21) lack the support they need from their families and many are not hired for jobs because of gender identity-based discrimination - this makes it impossible for these youth to get the binder they need and deserve. Many trans* youth suffer from gender dysphoria - the intense hatred and discomfort towards their biological bodies - making a chest binder an absolute need and instant prevention from suicide (as many youth cannot afford chest surgery). Giving a binder will boost the confidence of transgender youth in need and allow these youth to better function in society.
This overwhelming urgency for chest binders is a crisis. Not having a chest binder can contribute to the severe depression experienced by many transgender people. The suicide rate for transgender people is estimated to be a shocking 41%. (Source Below)
In A Bind, a non-profit project under TransActive Education & Advocacy has 1,401 youth on their waiting list. Not enough donations are coming in and they were forced to close their waiting list. It’s time to raise the money we need and provide youth with chest binders.
Our goal is to provide at least 100 youth with new binders from underworks. Each binder is about $30.00 including shipping. That is $3000.00 needed. Good news! The Frank Cassata Family Foundation will match whatever money is raised during this virtual campaign. If we raise $3,000 that means we have raised $6,000 - that is 200 new binders for youth in need!
Ninety percent of donations received will go to buying binders for disadvantaged youth. The remaining 10% will be used to cover the shipping cost. All binders will be sent to youth on the In a Bind waiting list. In a Bind accepts applicants age 21 and under from all over the United States. There are no rules or qualifications around who applicants are or how they identify. All we ask is that people only apply for a binder if they need one to curb dysphoria (ie, not just for cosplay or performance). For more info, visit inabind.transactivonline.org
PLEASE REBLOG AND SHARE ON YOUR OTHER SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES!!!
Oh that is pretty neat!
I’ll I’m asking is to reblog this picture and keep the caption to help my mom’s business get out there.
My mom recently got fired from her job, my step-dad moved out and we don’t have enough money to keep living where we are. She has a small business where she sells candles, soaps, and soon body spray. (Which smell delicious (is that weird?) by the way)
All I want is for her business to get big and noticed a lot more than it is. This is what she’s wanted to do when she was younger, and even today. Make candles, soaps, etc. She loves this. She hated her old job as a banker and she hated retail. I want her to be happy.
So if you could, reblog this picture and keep the caption. If you could, follow her Facebook, Twitter, and/or Etsy. Buying from her Etsy or Website would mean a lot but I’m not asking you too.
hello cool kids!! thank you for taking the time to read up on what i have to offer for cheep (cheep cheep!!) commissions
a compact link to share with your buddies
ABOUT THE PET I DESIRE TO BEFRIEND
my 16th birthday is coming up, and i’m not throwing any party for myself..
instead, me and my dad are saving up to add a new companion and friend to my life! months ago, i found a video on the hill mynah bird, a japanese owner holding a delightful conversation with him. after thorough research of the lovely bird, i instantly fell in love with him, not because of his amazing capacity to communicate and memorize commands, but because of the capability of kindness and knowledge this bird has to share with any owner
i have owned birds previously with my nana, we’ve had parrots, finches, and cockatiels, but i think i want to have my own pet for a long time, and the mynah bird seems to be a wonderful friendly bird that loves to fly and be around people, and it’s perfect for me to own and bond with and have for my own
i already began to invest on guides to proper care for these kind of birds and have been working for the bird’s supplies, vitamins, and food expenses, i have worked a bit more to begin to learn about these birds
the hill mynah is a difficult bird to find in this country, because they are not allowed to be imported into america from asia, and a handful of breeders around the country have somehow obtained this bird (possibly from the 90’s fad of owning such an intelligent creature when they were imported legally/illegally) the bird unfortunately can go from 1,000-1,400$ in expense
MY DESIRED GOAL
raise 1,000$ before march 2014
THE QUICKY ANTHRO COMMISSION
FULLBODY ONLY = 10.00$
(((woah only 10$ !!!!!!)))

guys, i really hate having to ask for help but i need you desperately!
i fell down some stairs and fractured my fibula (ankle/leg) on 6/14. i had to go to the on-campus doctor despite having no insurance, and had to get three visits (will probably need more later), two sets of xrays, medication, a walking cast and crutches, all out of pocket.
the total for all this madness so far is $600… and since i’m unable to get to work right now i don’t have it, and i don’t have any way of making any income.
the money is due in full on august 15, and if i can’t pay it i will have a hold put on my student account that will not allow me to attend my classes, and worse- if this happens my financial aid will be revoked and i will have to leave college, in my senior fricking year.
i’ve set up a fundraiser at http://youcaring.com/kenbrokeleg, and as it explains there i am looking to do commissions if you’re willing to help me out!
to be straight with you guys i have never really done very many commissions- i honestly just don’t have a huge online presence and don’t get many bites. i know it sounds like a pain in the butt, but i’d like to talk to you if you’re interested and work out a rate based on what you want. loosely, i was thinking along these lines:
$25 = digital sketch
$50 = up to 9x12” paper illustration with some colors (pencil), can be mailed to you if you can pitch in for shipping
$75 = graphic design! poster, business card, logo, you name it, just not an entire branding system or set of things ok (we can work out a rate if you do want more)
btw my graphic design tumblr is at kencancomputer.tumblr.com
$100+ = i’ll work with you to set up a basic website for whatever you want. you’d have to find the hosting, and this would include limited graphics (we’d work out a price if you do need logos and such), pretty css and some basic cut and paste jquery.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE contact me if you have questions or want to help me out! ANYTHING HELPS. REALLY. AND I LOVE YOU IN ADVANCE.
NOT HAVING INSURANCE RUINS YOUR LIFE, WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.
Ken is my good friend and her art is rad! She specializes in kickass ladies, please help her out if you can!
This is my dog, named Butter
Today he had a seizure, and I don’t know the cause of it, but I need to get him to a vet right away. The thing is, I don’t have a dime. Literally no money at all. And apparently if he’s ingested something toxic, the chances of him having…
- Easy and very effective
- Requires nothing but your body
- Includes attack
Very useful to know, pass and share please.
I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this.
I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head.
Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away.
So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out.
I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot
this is very important. please watch this.
If you recall this post I made earlier this week about my grandfather, here is the entire, infuriating story. Only a few hours ago I had decided not to talk about this, but it CANNOT GO UNNOTICED.
Last Wednesday night Emilio was taken to the hospital via ambulance for chest pain. His neighbors called 911 but couldn’t tell us where he was taken. It wasn’t until Friday that we were made aware of this, and tried contacting MedStar Harbor Hospital in Baltimore about his whereabouts.
According to Harbor Hospital, Emilio was admitted to the hospital at 2:27 PM and released only a half hour later at 3:00pm. So, here it is, Friday evening, and the man isn’t at home, he hasn’t been seen in days. We call Harbor Hospital several times (3, exactly). Saturday morning, we call the police and file a missing persons report. I recall the police officer returning to his vehicle and making several calls: Harbor Hospital, Mercy Hospital, St. Agnes, the morgue. Yet again, Emilio was nowhere to be found.
Picture: a feeble, 69 year old black man, confused and can barely walk. Speaks English but incredibly hard to understand. Carrying approximately 10 bottles of heavy medication with him and possibly around 500$. Let me also include the fact that he is a Cuban refugee, and not a citizen of the united states.
The missing persons report is filed and the weekend detective is on the case. He sends us the missing persons flyer which I promptly posted on tumblr (its late in the night already). About two hours later, and several phone conversations with the detective, Emilio is found..!
He was at Harbor Hospital.
He was at Harbor Hospital THE ENTIRE TIME.
HE WAS AT HARBOR HOSPITAL THE ENTIRE TIME.
He was admitted to the hospital at 3:00pm on that Wednesday He was never RELEASED, he was ADMITTED, but apparently, this was too much information for Harbor’s computers to handle, or rather, their employees. We are told now that he is in the ICU, with liver and kidney failure, along with a bladder infection. He is in a medically induced coma.
On Monday, my mother makes her way to Harbor Hospital to see him and speak with his doctors. She signs all of the paperwork to have him admitted to Hospice and crosses off my grandmothers name as Emilio’s emergency contact and replaces it with her own. This was at approximately 3:30pm on Monday evening.
Nana, my grandmother, had a stroke this passed October. She cannot speak. She cannot walk. She has the understanding of a child. Obviously, she is unfit to be Emilio’s emergency contact.
Two days pass and we hear nothing from the hospital. We call again several times on today, Wednesday, and lo and behold, Harbor Hospital cannot find Emilio.
He is not in the ICU, he is not in Hospice. We are told he was transferred rooms, but YET AGAIN, there are no records, he cannot be found. How do you LOSE a PATIENT from the ICU who is in A COMA? Please let me know, Harbor.
10:00pm Wednesday, exactly 29 minutes ago as I type this: Harbor finally calls back.
Emilio passed yesterday, at approximately 7:30pm. My Nana received a call on her cellphone, which is out of service, alerting her of his death. Let me remind you that this woman is completely out of sorts, she cannot answer a phone, NOR DOES SHE HAVE ONE. Now let me remind you once more that Emilio’s emergency contact had been CHANGED a day prior to his passing.
So, thank you, MedStar Harbor Hospital, for the complete atrocities you have committed, the complete disrespect you have shown for Emilio, the complete incompetence of your employees, and the complete turmoil you have put my family though, not to mention the agony my grandmother will experience when she finds out. Whoever is reading this, please spread the word, don’t let this COMPLETE BULLSHIT go unnoticed. I want people to know what this hospital has done.I want to warn everyone. Please reblog this if you can. What other atrocious things could be happening here?
I’m sorry, Emilio Hernandez Lanusa. You deserved so much better in your final days, your final moments. You were an amazing, strong man. You will be missed and thought of. We will make sure everyone hears your story. Thank you for everything.
