I hate doing this, but I’m asking for donations.
hey all my followers
As you might be aware of, vickumss and I just recently moved out of a very abusive situation. Because of the conditions we were forced to endure we moved out ASAP, meaning I didn’t have a job, meaning Vicki is the one financially supporting both of us for the most part.
I now have a job, but it is minimum wage on a bi-weekly paycheck, so while I’ve been working for weeks I haven’t gotten any of that money due to starting in the middle of a pay-period.
Today, Vicki got in a car accident. It has been raining so she slid on a merge ramp and hit the guard rail- the entire driver’s side is dented in, the door cannot be opened and the window smashed in.
Even worse is the officer who came to her aid gave her a court summons for reckless driving because she was unaware of the speed limit (25mph, on a merge ramp??). There will be court fees.
We are both very, very strained finically. We’re having trouble with groceries even, so car repairs seem like a distant dream to us (even though we’d needed to have several repairs done to it BEFORE the accident.)
Please, this car is our only means of transportation to our jobs, and Vicki cannot afford to have her driver’s license taken away because we may not be able to afford the court fees that may appear.
We don’t know how much the fees will be for court/driving school or repairs. If she’s made to go thru driving courses, we’ve heard that it runs about $400.
Donations can be given to the paypal address firstname.lastname@example.org, or via the donate button on my blog.
I emphasize that I can absolutely do digital sketches for donators if it gives people an incentive to donate. IF YOU WANT ART IN EXCHANGE, INCLUDE A REF LINK IN YOUR DONATION MESSAGE. Since my hard drive crashed I don’t have any clean examples of the kind of art I’ll be exchanging for your generosity, but the bust on the left here is accurate (ignore the prices, its from a commission post). Any donations over $20 will get you a fullbody sketch.
You can also commission me.
All we ask is for some help. Signal boosts, donations, kind words, anything. Things have not been going well for us, and we’re both extremely emotional people who struggle with mental illness. Helping us would mean the world.
Thank you for reading/helping/donating in advance. You’re wonderful.
