Please help me crowd fund my rent to stay housed/fed.



Hey, y’all,

I’m in a major transitional period in my life. One of the things I’m phasing into is a new job (Yay! Super thankful). While I am already working, my new pay schedule is very different than what I’m used to; I won’t get paid until October 5th. I work a few side jobs in addition to my 9-5, and I’m running my body down trying to grind 7 days a week; it’s really difficult to manage non stop working, especially with fibromyalgia. It’s a condition I’ve been managing for years that causes lots of chronic widespread pain. My body is tired (some of you know I’m also in a constant battle with chronic depression; my mind and spirit are weary as well). Even with my hustle strong, I’m not quite making it this month.  That’s a big stressor because I have living expenses that cannot wait. 

I’ll never get on my feet or keep from sinking without some help, so at the encouragement of a loved one, I’m asking for any and all help you are moved to give. The following is a list of things I am raising funds for,  in order of priority:

Rent due by 9/25- $600 
Gas for my commute to/ from work -  $100
Food for the next 3 weeks until payday, 10/05/14 - $150
Meds/ doctor’s visits: $125

It seems so daunting when I type it out, but I know that what’s more daunting is having nothing at all and trying to make money appear from thin air. Thank you for taking the time to read, reblog, and/ or share this post. It means a lot when people stand in the gap for me. My PayPal email is I’ll be posting with updates as I near October 1. Again, thank you so much.

A school in Brazil had all its students protesting after a transgender girl got reprimanded after changing into a female uniform. All the students, including the boys, wore a skirt to school on September 1st in a way to show support to the girl, who still can’t wear her female uniform but the school says that they’re “reviewing the code of conduct.”

the school is the Pedro II in Rio, and her name is being omitted in news articles for privacy reasons. but please name what you can, “a school in Brazil” is really vague, those students deserve the proper recognition for their protest and support

I have Keratoconus which is a genetic condition that causes the cornea to turn cone shaped. It makes it hard to see, because bright lights form halo effects, obscuring the vision, and making it difficult to read, and in my case, draw. The day before my birthday, I went to a specialist, who gave me three options; Cross linking eye surgery, (which is still considered experimental in the United States, and not covered by insurance) Intact lenses (also not covered by insurance) or complete cornea transplants (Which is covered by insurance, but much riskier than the other two listed). 

Although there is some hope, since the Intacts is currently going through trial runs and studies for it to be approved by most insurances, I will learn by october, if I will be an acceptible participant for the study, and receive the intacts at either a reduced price, or not pay at all.

But, worse case scenerio, I will have to pay $5000-9000 per eye.

I cannot afford that, on my walmart salary. My family is barely skating by with what we have, and we still struggle every month to make ends meet. There is absolutely no way we would be able to pay for this surgery.

And, that really scares me. 

As an artist, and a writer, I depend so much on my eyes. Keratoconus is not curable, and will only worsten, if they go untreated. I NEED this surgery, but I can’t pay for it, with the few hundred bucks I get from putting up with walmart customers.

So, I turn to you, Tumblr. This is very hard for me to do, since I was raised to believe that if someone can work for their money, they very well should, and reserve the free help to the people who truly cannot help themselves. But, if you feel like you can, and want to donate, please feel free to send that money to my Paypal, at

If you want to help in another way, please spread my Commissioning Info or feel free to commission a piece of artwork from me directly by sending me an ask here, note me at my Dev.artor Email me your information at the same Email stated for my Paypal.

Simply re-blogging this really helps as well.

Thank you for taking your time for reading this out.

I’ll share this before I close the blog because it makes me sad.

I saw my parents yesterday.  The were in the mall getting my mom a new pair of glasses and wandered into my store.  I happened to be heading to the office and saw them walk in the mall entrance.  I hugged my mom and then I hugged my dad who said, “Hello son.”  I said I had to go to the office and excused myself soon after.  And then I spent the next hour or so fighting back tears.  I almost asked my manager if I could go home early but I got shorted on hours this week so I couldn’t afford to short myself as well.

I love my parents but I can’t spend any time with them without one of them calling me son or he or boy.  I don’t know how to talk to them about this.  I can’t talk to them about this.  I just freeze up when it happens.

I don’t know.  I started writing this a few hours ago and sunk in a depressive funk.  Going to get food and maybe feel a little better.

need couch urgent Seattle rape victim


Hey all, I’m Jackie a 33 yr old disabled trans woman in Seattle. I have a set income from disability, so its been difficult to rent in time. 

I was raped by a guy I had been seeing two days ago and had been kicked out of my friend’s place. He can’t handle the emotional turmoil. I spent yesterday in the hospital and found a hostel for a few nights to find out that they’re unwilling to work with me because my driver’s license doesn’t match my gender. I stayed there last night and am desperately trying to find a place. 

I do not want to go back to sex work, so this is really a last ditched effort. I’m quiet, clean, and normally become fast friends with roommates. I can pay a maximum of $550 monthly, but open minded to any arrangement that’s safe and fair.  

Seriously, I have no expectations but I’d be extremely grateful. I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Need Couch in Asheville, NC


Hello, I am a trans woman who has been living with a friend/lover for the past few months, and that has turned sour for me. I am looking for a place where I can stay for a few days/ weeks until I find a place of my own. I am willing to contribute some money for rent and/or clean, cook, watch pets, watch kids. I have a job at a local grocery store which starts tomorrow morning, and I am looking for a second job as I write this. I would prefer a place that is quiet and allows me to have plenty of personal space. If that’s not possible, just a few days away from my current situation would be very helpful. I am quiet, clean, and respectful of boundaries. Thank you so much. You can email me at or facebook me, Matilda May.
