if anyone remembers the story that was making rounds a while back about a 19 year old discovering the solution to cleaning up the pacific garbage patch, that project launched a fundraider which now has 7 days to reach it’s goal.

Help, please?

thethirddecade1121:

So my father who is the biggest abusive asshole I’ve ever met is apparently moving out of the country in two months?? He seems to think he can sell the house in that time, okay. But anyway, he’s willing to LEAVE THE COUNTRY to avoid supporting me.

I have an open SSI (disability) case but it’s going to take awhile longer to get the INITIAL decision, which is almost always no for anyone, because the US government sucks. but I’m really, really mentally ill and working is difficult to impossible, not even considering how shitty the economy is and how hard getting a job is in the first place.

Anyway I really, really, really need help like short term money and/or a place to stay in Virginia and I just….really, really need help. I’m trying not to panic but I’m losing all support and I don’t even know where I would stay so I don’t know where to even start applying for jobs. 

If you could signal boost this in hopes of getting suggestions, donations, or ideas of where to get help with living, I’d appreciate it so much.

For money stuff, my paypal is zeinahz14@gmail.com

Thank you.

Want to support #education? Donate to Tumblr Teachers’ Classrooms!

positivelypersistentteach:

Dear Tumblrverse,

Before the explanation part of this post, I need to say this so it will be in posts that are shortened by a reblog: More than anything I ask that you reblog this post so that kind millionaires  more people will see it and more support can be given.   All the Amazon wishlists and blogs are linked below the read more link!

As the new school year approaches, we are obviously in denial teachers are mentally figuring out what materials we need for the school year, what will be provided by the school or families, and what we will buy with our own money as we shop sales (if it is in our budget).  Several members of our #education community on tumblr dealt with unexpected family deaths, weather disasters, or more happy (but expensive) life achievements like getting married or having a baby.  Our pockets have been hit hard, and I think you’d be surprised how much of our own money we spend on classrooms each year.

Many of us teach in areas where our students’ families cannot help with school supplies.  In fact, as I began working on this project, every teacher I contacted to include that came from a more affluent community declined being included so that classrooms in greater need could be helped.  I am in awe of the teachers in this community.  After the jump is a list of teachers and their classroom wish lists for the upcoming year.  If you are able to, please consider supporting a teacher via their wishlist.  If you’d rather make a donation to their supply fund or send a gift card, I’m sure you could contact them and they wouldn’t turn you down.   

So after the jump are the blogs and corresponding wishlists from Tumblr’s teachers — most of the educators on this list I have personally interacted with and know them to be dedicated to their students.

this is the last time I’ll need help. [CORRECTED POST]

thepoliticalfreakshow:

thepoliticalfreakshow:

neoliberalismkills:

so here it is. I’ve asked for help a few times in the past few months. one of the loves of my life was murdered, I lost my job, I lost my car, I lost my home, I lost my partners, and was raped twice in the space of a week right after that.

y’all know I’ve had the most difficult period of my life recently. as a sex worker, I haven’t been able to make myself recover from my experiences enough to not be triggered by my work. the partner who lives with me, Alastair, him and I have tried our best to get by with the resources we have at our despense.

at this point, here is my plan: I need a van we can sleep in. that’s the very last point. I was going to get a hotel for a month, but I need a long term plan. being homeless and nomadic as we are right now, the best thing for us is a place we can crash in without any worry. a van is the best thing. I can get a cash van for $2000. it’s a lot, but, this would give us somewhat of a home.

this is the last time I wll ask for help. if we can get this, then we will be able to take care of ourselves completely. a van can be a home base for us and it would do more than I can explain. if you can donate, or signal boost, it would mean the world for me.

I am so sorry to ask for help again. we need to get out of here and this is the biggest, most important platform I can form for making things easy for us.

SIGNAL BOOST for a fellow blogger, neoliberalismkills. They need help. I hope some of you are able to help an amazing blogger out. If you can’t help money wise, help spread the word. 

*NOTE: This signal boost was corrected to fully respect neoliberalismkills choice of gender neutral pronouns, and to be fully respectful to their identity. 

For all of you that reblogged earlier, please replace the earlier post with this version. Thanks.

NEED COUCH - Bay Area or AZ

transhousingnetwork:

Greetings,

My name is Clair Farley, I am with the SF LGBT Center and Trans House - a trans advocacy group in the Bay Area. 

Today I spoke with a 19-year-old Saudi Arabian trans woman living in Arizona who says she’s facing life-threatening abuse and discrimination from family members. She has been refused housing in the shelter and has no support there. She said her father wants to send her back to Saudi Arabia where she will be killed for being trans.She has experienced years of violence and sexual abuse in Saudi Arabia before coming to the US for school. 

When her parents discovered she was trans they cut her educational visa and school grant. They are threatening to send her back to Saudi Arabia where she could experience more violence or be killed. She is feeling scared and alone. 

She is planning to take the bus to the Bay Area to seek Asylum and shelter but needs some temporary housing AZ. She is currently being abused by the relatives she is staying with AZ and was sexually assaulted in the the men’s shelter. She was refused a bed at the women’s shelters. 

Please let me know if you can provide any support or have any temp housing in AZ or Bay Area for short term stay! You can email me at clairf@sfcenter.org 

Warmly,

Clair Farley

Hey, everyone. So this is really, really important. Especially people in the TACOMA, SEATTLE AREA.
Early this morning (Sat. June 21) around 3:00 AM my husband saw somebody jump our backyard fence and snatch our 15 week old puppy, Fennris. Everything happened so fast, and it was completely unexpected so by the time we went after them, they had already gone.
The puppy is about 15 weeks old, an Alaskan Klee Kai (miniature husky). He weighs around 6-7 lbs and his coat is white/gray/black and he has bright blue eyes. He is wearing a blue collar with a nametag on it that reads “Fennris”.
We believe somebody grabbed the puppy, got into a car and drove away.
Please, please, please anyone in the Tacoma, WA area keep an eye out and if you see anything at all or hear anything PLEASE contact me right away.
If you don’t live in the Tacoma, WA area I would greatly appreciate it if you could signal boost this to your followers.
Fennris is the sweetest dog you’ll ever meet, and he’s young and he’s scared. He’s not just a pet, he’s a family member. Please help us find our puppy.
We are offering a $500 reward for his safe and unharmed return.

Yo signal boost this because A) These are the kids that run the Night Owl and B) fuck dog thieves.
