My appeal post

My father passed away recently, rather suddenly. He had a reverse mortgage on his home and was deeply in debt, so any money left in the estate after the funeral expenses will have to go to pay off the debt. I am living in the house and was driving a car that technically belonged to him, but now the house will be foreclosed on (not immediately, fortunately) and the car is going to have to be sold since it's in his name. (It also isn't running right now.)

I was trying to get my life together before this happened but I hadn't gotten very far. I do have a nearly full-time job but it doesn't pay very well. I am a CNA and I'm going to look for a better job or a second job so I can support myself in a rented room. I'm not sure how I'll do that without a car, but I'm going to have to do my best.

Any financial help would be extremely appreciated. I will have to pay off the household bills he left (hundreds of dollars worth) and try to support myself in this house for a while. (There is a renter but he might move at any time.) Then I will have moving expenses. I wish I could offer something in return for you guys but I really don't have any art skills like the people who offer fanart.

My Paypal is yosefraptor at yahoo dot com. Thank you so much for any consideration, or just a signal boost, or just your kind thoughts.

To my friends: I know some people have mentioned offering something in exchange for donations and if you want to repost this and do that that's wonderful of you.

I realize a lot of people are broke and stretched to the limit. I'm sorry I have to even ask.

ETA: erin_c_1978 and senoritafish have been very kind to offer artistic incentives!

I just e-mailed you what I'm proposing to put up in my LJ if it's okay with you.

Will signal boost on sites I'm on - and I checked out erin c's post and what a great idea! I'd do the same but I'm not sure there's anything my DA gallery anyone would want.

Thank you very much.

I don't really have anything either, so I can understand that! I really appreciate the signal boost.

I dropped this in the Radio Free Monday post, so it will probably show up there next Monday.

Thank you very much. I should have had it up earlier but I was steeling my nerves to go through with it.

I really appreciate the help.

I'm doing something similar to senoritafish and erin_c_1978 - I'm also offering to write original stories and free verse poetry for donations to you.

Also signal boosted on my lj blog, and the lj community needagooddeed. needagooddeed's moderators will check my post, and they'll put it up if it's appropriate. Fingers crossed they'll approve it.

Just came across this blog. Wish I hadn't, not during such a loss. My condolences, ma'am. I would like to help but no money. Also have no idea what Signal boost means... ;-;

Peace.

Signal boosting is just reposting -- but you don't have to do that either of course. I appreciate the kind thoughts very much.

I'll boost this on Saturday, when I've got a bit of a leeway from the commission post I just made ;__; But I'll have something to send you on the 27th-28th, okay?

*hugs* Again, I'm so sorry you're having to go through this, hon.

Hey, I'm basically a fandom lurker and I don't really know you aside from having read and enjoyed some of your final fantasy fic. But I came across this post while surfing around lj, and I know what it's like to be in a bad financial situation, so I'd like to help out. I can't contribute much in the scheme of things but I would like to give what I can, assuming you're ok with help from strangers. Just let me know. I'm sorry you're going through this right now and I hope things get better.

Wow, thank you that's really kind of you and I'm glad you enjoyed my fic. And yeah, unfortunately I am in a position where I need to take help from strangers if they see their way to it and anything helps. Even if you decide you can't I really appreciate the kind thoughts.

I can definitely help out, and I've actually just sent you some money over paypal. Good luck with everything.
