i was born with a super shitty birth defect called cleft lip and palate. its basically a huge……cleft where ur nose and lip is supposed to be.
i’ve had over 20 surgeries in my lifetime to correct it, but i still require cosmetic surgeries, which my insurance won’t cover.
my family has lived in poverty for about 5 years now. i was bullied to the point of dropping out of high school to treat my PTSD that resulted from years of abuse because of my disability.
which is why i made a gofundme page to collect donations for facial corrective surgery!
i really do require further surgeries to be able to function well enough that i can, hey, i don’t know, go to college or something. that would be super nice!
so please check it out, read it, send it to ur friends, reblog it, throw in 2 cents, whatever you can! thank u ^_^

I got this in a forwarded email today and I wanted to help spread word about this project.
P.S - fuck that potato salad guy. seriously.
Take back crowd source fundraising from potato salad guyJuly 10, 2014 at 7:10pm
Alright folx, this white dude on Kickstarter has raised over $45K w/ 22 days left to go for what? Potato salad. Yes, you heard it right. He’s asking people for money so he can make potato salad.
Meanwhile our friend and champion activist Imani Henry is struggling to make $15k for a brilliant, beautiful, and necessary project about #gentrification in #Brooklyn. Here’s the link: http://igg.me/p/785440/x
Jerks like potato salad guy and his friends who feel they have nothing better to do with their money are buying condos and contributing to people losing their homes and communities in places like Brooklyn, San Francisco, East Harlem, Oakland, and so many other places. And this is one of many reasons why Imani’s project Before It’s Gone // Take It Back is so important. I know our communities aren’t flush with cash or the entitlement to ask for $$ for potato salad, but I’ll bet many of us know of at least one person who might have a little extra income. If that is the case, please ask your pals to donate money to Imani’s project.
Also, there are enough of us who can give $5, $10, or even $20 to this project. If enough of us give even the smallest amount, Imani can reach his goal. This project is a community project. Many benefit from it. Please please help make it happen! There are 9 days left to raise $10,470. It’s totally possible if we all get on board. Let’s help Imani take back Brooklyn and let’s all take back crowd source fundraising. (If you must know more about potato salad guy, go here:
But more importantly, go here to support Imani:
Please share. Please give.
Charlie is a young QTPOC currently living in Ottawa, Ontario. They’re a great and gentle soul who is perhaps the friendliest and funniest person you’d ever meet! Unfortunately, their home situation has been less than ideal and they recently got kicked out of their home once they came out to their parent.
Thanks to friends, they have a place to stay for a couple weeks while they try to find a job and housing arrangments but they are looking for a more permanent solution and immediate financial assisstance for things like food, clothing, personal items and certifcations that will aid their job search. Charlie is the sweetest person I know and it pains me to see them in such a position so we’re asking for donations to help them secure a place to live and the first couple months rent while they try to get a job and figure out life on their own.
The goal is to raise 3,000$ in the next 30 days and every dollar counts! Even if you can’t donate, just spreading the word and sharing this page would help immensely.
Thank you so much!
this is a really, really good friend of mine who I love so much and this entire situation breaks my heart. if you can donate, please donate!!!!! and if not, just reblog this and spread the word. thanks
Signal boost like you never signal boosted before, Tumblr. Let’s make sure Charlie gets taken care of.

The Eagle Bull- Oxendine family is being sued by their child’s school for defamation, because they asked the school to permanently change their offensive and culturally insensitive Thanksgiving curriculum and to honor a two-year scholarship taken from their daughter after they voiced their concern over Native appropriation there.
They’re raising funds to defray mounting legal expenses. Please share this link and donate what you can. If they lose, we all lose. This case has the potential to set dangerous precedent where Natives are effectively gagged from speaking out against appropriation and the abuse of our culture and sacred ways by mainstream society. This is legal conquest. We can’t allow them to play Indian and hide behind judicial robes to do it. Thank you.

Boost the ever loving hell out of this y’all.
Taking an educational opportunity from a girl because they don’t like the way her family says true things? This cannot EVER be allowed to stand. Punishing a child to silence her family. This school district needs to pay out of the nose for that bullshit.
Hey community. I am reaching out to everyone because I need help buying groceries and feeding myself until next Friday. As many of you know, I have started a new job as a care counselor for youth in a group home who are referred there through foster care or mental health hospitals. I’ve done over 70 hours at the site but as I don’t get paid weekly but bi-weekly, I won’t see that money for about a week and a day. Most of my other finances are taken care of but groceries are not. And we need to eat. Any amount would be greatly appreciated, from $1 up! Anything will be appreciated. My paypal email is email@example.com and the link is here. If the link times out, just use the email address. If you can’t donate, please boost. I know a lot of people are mad at that potato salad shit, but I’m tryna make some of that too lol. So help me out!
SIGNAL BOOST THIS EVERYWHERE!!!
My friend Chelle is in desperate need of help, monetary or otherwise. She has two rescue kittens she needs to feed, in addition to being able to feed themself and pay bills, as well as have transportation money to get to job interviews and possible jobs themself.
They moved to NYC to go to school, after realising that their at-the-time home situation was going to disappear. They enrolled at NYU, and now due to the scammy nature of the financial aid office, the total lack of care the administration feels towards their students, she is struggling to make ends meet in Brooklyn.
NYU cut their aid, only offered only loans, and became more and more vague and unhelpful when it came time to discuss a financial aid package, her well being, etc. At one point, they retroactively took away Chelle’s pell grant and added that debt on top of the loans she had to take out to even attend. The situation is desperate, and with no family to fall back on, they really need help from the community. The only “positive” right now is that — God willing — their loans will come in in July. It’s just a matter of making it until then.
Chelle is a Black 19 year old nonbinary queer living in poverty. She is a phenomenal writer, an extremely talented artist, honest, so incredibly bright and one of the sweetest, funniest, best people I’ve met. They suffer with various mental health issues that exacerbate the situation and make existing even more difficult than it already should be.
But this shouldn’t matter, because whether or not someone “deserves” help is beside the point. We have a young Black nb queer struggling to survive, exhausting their spoons every day by just existing, and in a financial hell. They need help. They need a little support right now to be able to stand back on their feet after being screwed over by people who shoulda been helping her out.
They’ve asked me not to link their blog, but their Amazon is here and firstname.lastname@example.org is her Paypal.
I know shit is rough, but she’s literally subsisting off like, fuckin’ listerine strips for meals. Anything at this point will help, any monetary donation big or small, any purchase from her Amazon wishlist.
Again, this is their PAYPAL (email@example.com) and here is their AMAZON WISHLIST. Please signal boost and help.
Here is a list of finances they need:
******$112 for a pass, as she is going back to school in a month.********* (This is really important for mobility and independence)
$500 for rent
$150 for bills
$50-$100 for food/cat expenses
I saw some post about some potato kid or some shit and I wanted to re-signal boost this again. It’s still relevant, and I’ve gotten a lot more followers recently.
Please reblog, please send even $5 like. My friend is in a fraught living situation and needs help.
Signal boost the hell out of this, people. And give what you can if you can!
I’ve lost my source of income, and I need some help until I can figure out something else. I’m disabled, mentally ill, and basically alone. My needs are few, but without income, I’m afraid I won’t be able to meet them.
Donate to firstname.lastname@example.org on Paypal if you can afford to. Please make a note that it’s for lichgem, since it’s not my Paypal.
If you can’t afford to help, please signal boost. Thank you.
Hey folks, apparently 4Chan will be ‘invading’ tumblr as countermeasure against feminists swamping their site tomorrow. Apparently will involve hardcore porn, gore, etc., in the feminist tag. Dunno how bad or extensive it’ll be, but best be on the watch.
please please PLEASE be on the lookout, I went to /co/ and needless to say there was victim blaming left and right, so be v careful
Signal boost, take good care of yourselves, and the ask box is open here if anyone needs it!
I really hate asking for donations. but, as it is, I am currently mentally/physically stuck in a house that is really, really bad fo me.
as most of you know, I went thru a pretty shite situation recently. my best friend and lover was murdered, then I lost my two partners, then I was raped by two different people in the space of a week, one of which was at gunpoint.
my work, I’m a sex worker. I’ve been trying to make myself recover enough to get back into the game, but I can’t. due to the sexual assaults of recent, I’ve been really, really unable to work. too triggering. the second assault resulted in my living with the rapist for a few weeks and it’s kind of torn me apart.
Alastair (my partner) and I are trying to get out of the house we are currently staying in. it’s my parents’ house, but it is not a place I should be in for reasons you can assume but I can’t really type out. I need to get out so I can get back on my feet and get my life started again. I want to get us a hotel for a month ($800 here for a month; criminal record means I can’t get an apartment right off the bat). if you can donate, I’d be so fucking appreciative.
please. please help us if you can. donate button is on my blog, email for paypal is either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, either one will work. thank you so much and I’m sorry to ask again, I really am. there’s also a donate button at the bottom of my description on my page. thank you.
SIGNAL BOOST THE HELL OUT OF THIS!
Hi I’m Robin, a 20-year old mentally ill trans girl. My parents gave me an ultimatum to either cut out my hormones until I graduate or to be cut off financially and I really can’t give that up, so I won’t be getting support from them during the next two years.
After making a budget, I’ll be coming up a few thousand short each year. Right now I require a minimum of $700 a month (rent and hormones) and in a month I can bring in just over $400 through a job, (the jobs aren’t even guaranteed for next year).
Basically I’m really scared that I won’t be able to make ends meet by myself and I’ll have to ruin either my education or my transition to continue the other.
That’s why I’m going to be asking for donations right now. If you have a dollar or two to spare, I’d really appreciate it! The money will go towards covering the leftover money for living and funding my transition (clothing, makeup, and anything else that comes up).
The link to donate is here.
(if I can’t get enough to get by i really will have to drop hormones so please help me)
A dear friend, writer, and Oregon black scholar, Walidah Imarisha, has had her work lifted without her consent and used to crowdsource and fund a documentary called Whitelandia. Whitelandia is supposed to be a movie about Oregon’s exceptionally racist history. Unfortunately the white film makers have built their entire work off the backs of black scholars and generations worth of black historians but have done little of their own research.
Walidah had this to say about Tracy MacDonald and Matt Zudrow, but I’m just going to quote a snippet:
And more than just using a clip of my program without permission, the producers stated several times, in our one face-to-face meeting as well as in various emails, that my timeline, my research and my analytical framework I put forward in my public scholarship form the spine of their film. Again, without my input or even knowledge. This situation, where my work as a Black female scholar has been used by two white filmmakers without conversation, credit, compensation or control reeks of intellectual colonialism.
My other concern is that this film raised a significant amount of money on a kickstarter using the faces, voices and stories of people who were not asked, and did not agree to it. I did not agree to be part of this project, and certainly not a part of a kickstarter campaign. It seems the majority of their money came from small donations, funded by everyday people who believe this is a vital topic that needs to be explored and shown on a larger level. People who thought they were funding a film rooted in and deeply connected to communities of color in Oregon, which unfortunately is not the case.
And here are the producer’s public contact info (I did not dig for this, this was openly available). Please write them and let them know that what they’re doing is hurtful to Oregon’s community of color, and that we are deeply saddened to see them profit off black bodies while simultaneously not allowing them credit or profit from the work they create. Although their intentions may be good, this does not absolve them from their profoundly racist behavior. Please write to:
Tracy MacDonald (tmacdonald@uncolaﬁlms.com) (503-490-4054)
Matt Zudrow (mzodrow@uncolaﬁlms.com) (503-890-8132)
