HI THERE, EVERYONE! MY NAME IS TANNER, AND I REALLY, REALLY NEED YOUR HELP.
I’m a 28-year-old non-binary person with some long-term mental health issues that I’ve been away from work with for quite some time while I try to get them dealt with once and for all after ignoring them for most of my life. Up until fairly recently, I was doing really, really well with that, but unfortunately, we’ve hit a bit of a snag!
My landlord has decided that he wants to sell the apartment that I live in, and I am being evicted on August 7th.
Because I’m currently claiming benefits due to my being medically unfit to work, I’m having an enormous amount of difficulty finding a new home - private landlords just don’t want to consider a person claiming benefits as a tenant, it turns out! This means that I’m entirely dependent upon my local authority’s social housing scheme to rehome me, and with one week to go, we’ve come no closer to finding anything. In addition, they’re also stating that they do not have an obligation to shelter me as I do not have any children and am not currently on suicide watch. As of August 7th, I will be out on the streets with nowhere to go.
My family are supporting me in any way they can, but they simply don’t have the money to help me or house me, so I’m facing this on my own!
I need money to feed myself, to get my things moved into storage and to get myself set up in whatever new place I end up living in, whenever that happens, but my current budget is already stretched as tight as can be after paying off my remaining bills, debts and rent, and I just don’t have anything left to spare.
You can really help me out by donating via PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time, and believe me when I say that every single penny counts! Whatever you can give will be a huge help to me!
I’d offer commissions, but my computer will be going into storage and I will be unable to fulfill any requests until I’m set up with broadband in my new home. In the meantime, please help me with funds for food, moving costs and my mobile contract so that I can stay in contact with my friends and family. Everything helps!
If you can’t give, please, please, please circulate this post as much as you can! Even after August 7th, continue reblogging and signal boosting - that’s when I’ll need your help the most!
Thanks so much, everyone!
UPDATE! - Within less than 24 hours, you marvellous, perfect people have put together £56.19 between you! See what I meant when I said every penny counts? It all adds up, so please keep donating, even if you can only give a little!
Now, I know most of you reading this will most likely be in the US or Canada, so let me explain exactly how much £56.19 is worth in terms of what you’ve helped me to pay for so far:
One month’s secure storage for my belongings AND one month’s payment of my mobile contract, which includes data
- OR -
Two thirds of the cost of the man and van to actually get my belongings into storage in the first place
- OR -
One month’s actually quite good food as opposed to one month’s terrible and unhealthy but really, really cheap food
- OR -
A pretty good tent and sleeping bag
That’s really, really awesome! Now ideally I need all of those things and then some, but this is a terrific start and I really don’t have the words to express my gratitude! To everyone who sent something, even if it was only a couple of dollars, I want to extend my most sincere and heartfelt thanks. You’ve already made this awful situation so much easier for me, and it touches me deeply to know that you care enough to help me like this.
Please continue to circulate this post! You’re all brilliant and I love you!
