Hello friends, I need your help!

Unfortunately, I haven’t gotten my paycheck for this month. I was able to somewhat get things underway though, so I might get my paycheck properly after all - however, that will take about a month.

Unfortunately, until then I have no money to cover rent, bills and living expenses. As I’m on my own and have no one to ask for help/support, I am turning to you, dear followers and tumblr users.

If you have the means, I would be incredibly grateful if you could help me out a little. I would need 500€ (about 675$) to get through the month.
Please do not feel bad if you can’t, though. I understand completely, and I hope things will look up for you soon! I would be super happy if you could signal boost though! But again, please worry about yourself first ):

I would feel really uncomfortable about keeping the money, so as soon as I get the paycheck, I will donate the money you donated to a charity of your choice (please write the charity of your choice in the paypal comment somewhere, and also if you would like to see the confirmation e-mail from the charity). If no charity or the like is given, I will donate that money to the DKFZ (German Cancer Research Center).

If you are able to donate, I put a donate button on my page (It’s on the right!) - as soon as I reach 500€, I will take it out and make a follow-up post!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and please take care, everyone!

Reblogging again before going to sleep!

85€/500€  already so far! Thank you so much everyone who has donated and signal boosted ;_; *smooches* I really cannot thank you enough!

To Write Scam On Her Arms.

sugaredvenom:

So who exactly is surprised that it turns out that To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA) are disgusting sexist, homophobic douches who only really exist to scam emo kids into going to church?

I’ve been suspect of these assholes for ages, so I did some research, and it only took me seconds to find out I was right to be distrustful. Renee at omgwtflol.net also did some research. From the article:

They made x amount, let’s call it $100,000 to make it even. Of that, only something like 25% was accounted for. The rest? Completely unaccounted for. Most charities release their financial statements. Don’t you find it a little odd that we don’t know where 75% of all money given to them goes? The 75% would be “administrative costs”, aka “paying the people that work there”. Of that 25%, some of it goes to an extremely sketchy charity called Mercy Ministries. You might know them as the anti-gay, pro-life, pile of crap charity that believes that people can be made straight. At their homes, they don’t allow close contact between women because of the risk of lesbianism! Isn’t that nice, donating to a charity which encourages a belief that makes a lot of teens suicidal? MM also believes in the power of exorcism. Australians may remember them as the charity that made girls entering the program sign their Centrelink payments over to them, and gave the girls no therapy but prayer. Do you really want to support this charity? TWLOHA is effectively endorsing the belief that prayer cures depression, and that being gay is something one chooses. They’re owned by Fireproof Ministries. Y’know, the same guys who gave you XXXChurch.com? You know, selling out Jesus for the moneys? They’re also (financially) associated with Teen Mania Ministries, which has been described as racist, women hating and hateful in general. The dude who runs it, Ron Luce also runs the Battle Cry Campaign. The BCC’s purpose is to “…ensure that Christianity survives in America by redefining society”. Read their Wiki. Tell me that isn’t a stumble away from a cult. Yeah, once again, do you want your money to support this? Sure, they offer hope. But, you know, that extra 75% would be way better spent on actually helping people, as opposed to selling fugly tshirts and supporting homophobia. I find it sick they’ve turned depression and addiction into a damn fashion statement. I find it sick they’re using their power to help support vile and disgusting beliefs like homophobia.

Personally, I think I’ve always been uncomfortable with it because it’s always seemed to me that there’s so much glamourisation of self-injury around it and linked to it.  

I’d be interested to know if anyone else has any intertesting stories or facts they know about the organisation? I feel like something should be done, but I don’t know what  :s

Edit: Ever since posting this I’ve been thinking about all the people I saw suggesting TWLOHA as an anti-suicide organisation on Spirit Day and I feel kind of sick about it. Please reblog this so that any gay and trans* (because anti-choice and anti-gay people don’t tend to be too ‘down’ with trans* people) know not to contact them for help or contribute money. There are charities out there that offer support to anyone, whether they’re gay, or trans*, or young and pregnant, or have an STI, and they are the ones that deserve our support.

2nd Edit: Here is Jamie Tworkowski, founder of TWLOHA’s rubbish response where he calls being gay a lifestyle choice. I also corresponded with a woman called Missy who asked for suggestions for the website, none of which were taken up as far as I can tell, and I never received a response.

Seems there’s a new type of spambot/hack thing going around which means you’re FORCED to follow them.

You can’t even unfollow them the normal way because their page redirects to a 404, despite still showing posts on my dash. So the only way to do it is through your ‘Following’ list.

Just giving everyone the heads up. If this happens to me again, I’m changing my password.

WOW YEAH I JUST FOUND THIS ON MY LIST. Unfollow and block that shit, pals!!

leave it up to me and accidentally follow him instead of checking if he follows me orz

pleeease repost this if you can. signal boost, anything. this isn’t just my story, it’s important.

grintoforever:

tonight i watched a documentary that made me realize i have spent far too long being far too quiet about something very serious. something i could be speaking out about and helping other people who are going through it right now. for too long i have been ashamed to admit that when i was 13 years old i was sent, against my will, to a rehabilitation center in utah. it was mormon-run, called “turn about ranch.” i had no history of drugs, violence, alcohol abuse, sex addiction, shopping addiction, any kind of addiction at all. i was sent to this program because i had a “bad attitude”. i’ll hit that home: i was sent away to utah and locked up against my will, at the age of 13, because i had “bad attitude” and my parents wanted to “fix me.” i was picked up at the airport and driven to the facility by two people i had never met in my life who tried to calm me down for the 5 hour drive by feeding me cheeseburgers and pretending it would all be okay. when i got there, all of my belongings were taken from me and i was told to go sit in a rock circle in the dirt. i wasn’t allowed to lie down or speak to anyone. no one came to talk to me for 5 hours. when they finally did, i was told i was supposed to be “detoxing” and “thinking about what i’d done.” again, i had never done drugs of any kind. there was nothing to detox from. all i did was cry. 

i sat in that circle for 3 days, and then an additional 14 days after that because i wasn’t able to produce 8 fires from the bowdrill technique (i weighed about 87 pounds at the time so this really wasn’t surprising.) i spent 3 months being forced against my will to do hard labor, accept jesus into my heart, repent my sins and be shamed about who i was as a person. i had to fill out a binder of paperwork teaching me how to change and be better. i was cut off from technology and from the outside world. people who ran were chased down on horseback and sent to other programs where they spent 3 months hiking in the wilderness. i didn’t speak to my parents except in letters that the program read ahead of time and threw out if i had revealed too much. when my parents came to get me, the program tried to talk them into keeping me there. during this time i almost died at least 3 times doing things much too dangerous for someone my age. i sat on a cactus and was taken to a vet instead of a doctor. i was kicked by a horse and not taken anywhere. my “schooling” was basically just packing a bunch of us into a room while an older gentlemen slept and the rest of us read books for 4th graders. 

When I finally got out of this program, I was sent to a lockdown boarding school in vermont which was even worse. here we weren’t allowed to leave the facility, numerous girls tried to commit suicide, there were at least 2 sexual harassment cases between teachers and students and I had to be kidnapped by my mom and taken to florida because the program didn’t allow you to leave until you were 18. 

Both of these programs were run by Aspen Education Group. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspen_Education_Group 

This is a mormon-run group that has hundreds of facilities across the country where youths are sent against their will and locked up, cut off from their families. many families have lost contact with their children once this happens because the programs continue to send the children to other facilities without instructing the family first. At this very moment, kids are locked in these facilities with no way out, because their parents couldn’t think of a better alternative to behavioral issues than locking up their child. As far as I know, not many people know about these places. A short-lived reality show “Brat Camp” highlighted them for a while but didn’t garner much attention. Please, if you can, spread this around. This rigorous Mormon company is along the same vein as “straight camps” in terms of their approach. If my mom hadn’t kidnapped me I would’ve been in them until I was 18. I have no other way of getting attention on these programs except this blog, but attention MUST be put on them. They have already had numerous of their facilities shut down due to unethical treatment and sexual harassment cases. You could be helping so many kids who are locked away while the world is completely unaware of this epidemic in this country. 

PLEASE PLEASE spread this around. I can no longer stand the thought of someone else having to go through what I went through.

Problem

Natalia was 16 when her freedom was stolen. Her mother left her when she was a young child, and her father’s drinking habits forced her to fend for herself. A trusted teacher convinced her that she could have a better life by finding work in another country. Instead, she was captured, abused, and sold as a sex slave. 100,000 young girls and women in Moldova (Europe’s poorest country) have experienced a nightmare like Natalia’s.

If you support LGBTQ Rights you need to stop scrolling and read this. This is not a fucking joke.
If you cant read this, here it is: 
If you don’t remember Sophie M Herold, she is a German girl, who is extremely homophobic and transphobic. She has found out LGBTQ persons names, addresses, personal info etc. And set up her own database.Her intentions with this are harmful.
She is sending out this information, your information, your best friends information, someone you love and care about. She’s sending it to hate groups, malicious people, people with bad intentions.And if you think I’m blowing this out of proportion, people have been kicked out of homes, disowned by families and even MURDERED. Yes, murdered. Innocent people who have done nothing but love.She has had numerous blogs and each have been removed. Tumblr staff are aware of her, and as far as I’m aware she currently doesn’t have a blog, but this does not mean she isn’t still on peoples tumblrs, asking via anon where you live, what your name is.An email I received today. She’s sending out information of same sex couples with children so the children can be kidnapped. She entitled it “Time to strike back”. If that doesn’t suggest harmful intentions I don’t know what does.Please be extremely careful what you post on tumblr, on twitter, facebook, anywhere. Do NOT give out your full name or your address, or even the town in which you live. Look out for one another, and don’t answer any suspicious anons. Especially if they use your name in quotation marks.Sophie M Herold is still out there, she always will be, so please spead this message and warn people. She’s attacking in silence. We don’t need more people dying because of her actions.

This disgusting excuse of a human being of needs to stop, but the only way it can be stopped is if you spread this! Please, be aware of any suspicious people or anons asking for personal information. It can get you or your loved ones in SERIOUS DANGER. Thank you.

Update: $3,866.93 

Holy shit. I really, really don’t even know what to say right now. You guys are just… wow, thank you so much. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. Even if the money doesn’t transfer to my bank in time and we get kicked out, this will still be a huge help in at least storing our stuff and staying in a hotel for a few days.

My dad is also saying that he never received a first eviction notice from the landlord like the letter says - my mom told me he did, but he’s saying he never got one. So I’m not sure what the deal is with that, but I have a feeling the landlord is going to do whatever she can to proceed with kicking us out, and if the court rules in her favor, we have to pay all of her legal fees, too. :x At least that’s what the paper says. So just cross your fingers the money goes through in time so it doesn’t happen.

And I’m on the phone with my grandma right now if you’ve sent me a message, it’s going to take even longer to get to. Sorry for the wait, and thank you all again SO MUCH. I really can’t thank you enough and I just wish there was something I could do to make it up to you all. 

Congratulations!

I hope Paypal gets through!  Perhaps try e-mailing Paypal to explain the situation?  I don’t know how receptive they are of those things, but there are transfers that can wait, and transfers that can’t, and they might understand it.

Updated amount: $2,791.34

Which is INCREDIBLE. Beyond incredible. You’re all beautiful people and I am so, so grateful for you guys - I am honestly speechless by how willing you all are to help someone most of you don’t even know. And I keep crying because I just can’t believe so many people care and are willing to contribute. It means the world to me, so thanks again. 

She needs $900 more by end of tonight… But seems like she’s gotten over a $1000 in the past hour, so it may be possible!
