ALRIGHT. So after an astounding amount of support and encouragement to do this, I put a donation option on my blog.
(PLEASE DON’T REBLOG THIS AS A LINK :’D)
In short, my mom and I have been living with her parents and her two abusive, drug addicted, potentially homicidal brothers that insult me and threaten to hurt us on a daily basis for the past 3 years. Before we moved with them we had our own house, just my mom and I, but the rent became too much to afford and our goal was to move to Florida so both of us could fulfill our dreams of working at Walt Disney World. So we moved in with her parents in hopes of saving up money (my mother is currently unemployed with a BA in Social Work and still hasn’t been able to find a single job in 3 years of searching) to speed up the Florida process.
We intended on moving to Florida after a year of living here, but then everything went wrong. Bills became too much, my grandparents got very sick, and the money that we had saved to move to Florida was spent on medical bills and was given to my junkie uncles. The turmoil between us and her brothers has been so hard on me that for a long time last year I was sent to the hospital weekly due to dehydration and malnutrition because I had stopped eating for about a month thanks to my anxiety levels which had skyrocketed.
Recently we had a yard sale to help us move to Florida and sold everything we had left, only to make 300 dollars. 200 of that went to paying off loans that we’ve been forced to make just to live. The other 100 is being held for us by some family friends, but that’s all we have at this point. And 100 dollars wont get us to Mississippi, let alone Orlando.
Basically, things are getting worse by the minute and if we don’t get out soon, I’m terrified of what might happen to us. Whether my uncles try to hurt us, or if they have someone else do it. I just want my mom to be happy and she says that the only way she will be happy is if I’m happy and I wont be happy until I’m out of this hell hole. So as much as it pains me to do this, I’m requesting donations to help us get out of here, not even for our dream anymore, but for our general safety and sanity. Any amount will help, ANYTHING.
My mom estimated that we would need a minimum of $3000 to move from New Orleans to Orlando and have the first month’s rent payment on the apartment were hoping to rent. PLEASE, guys, if you can send anything, a QUARTER even, I’d be completely grateful. I’ll even try to do some doodles as thanks for the donation. I’m so thankful that we have this to fall back on, and I’d like to thank anyone in advance who chooses to donate, because it WILL help.
