whatawaytoburn: ([Misc[ Save Yourself)
Welcome to the club of lost girls, of broken girls, of girls who are sick, strange and starving.

But we are free.

We are not chained, we are not anyone's but our own. We belong to ourselves and the world around us. We spread our wings, we arch our backs, we scream and sing and spin int the night.

Yes, you had to bleed to get here and yes, it hurt. You have scars but that means you have stories too. You have had a life and that? Is something to be proud of.

So, sit by the fire and tell us a tale. Tell us who you had been, tell us about the bloodshed and the pain and the names they called you. Tell us about how they put you down, how they called you strange. We'll understand, they called us strange too.

They called us strange and wrong and broken and maybe we are those things, maybe we are exactly what they say but we are still not kept in bondage, we still don't have collars around our necks.

We are free, we are the girls of the forest, of the oceans, of the sky and sand. We are more than that, more than girls. We are people. We are creatures of the world, citizens of the universe.

So come join the club of lost girls, lost people, found people, free people.

We open our arms to you, we open our hearts.

This is a fundraiser to help a family. I know I've gotten people to be very kind to people I know before but I'm hoping that, maybe, I can get you all to be nice and kind and brilliant to me again. but

My mother recently took a pay cut which, in and of itself, is not that big of a deal. We have enough money to survive and even a little money to help out my aunt and her husband.

But not enough.

My aunt is physically disabled and in the process of getting SSi8, my uncle, who had a job, god fired several months ago over an incident that involved his son. Right now, they have three children, none of them old enough to actually get a job on their own.

Their car recently gave out and the woman whose home they've been renting is dealing with her brother dying of cancer and is flying to and from Alaska, thus she can't really help them the way she had been before.

My uncles other son, the one who isn't one of my aunt's children and living with them, just had a child and he's having to deal with the fact that he cant' be there to help support that child.

It's just a big mess, really.

The main thing I am trying to do is get enough money to pay for a car. We can skim our finds over and help them make rent and food but not having a car cripples any ability my uncle has of going out and looking for work and none of the kids are on a business. Right now, they are getting by with my mother's car whenever she can give it up but it's terribly difficult.

My goal is $2,000. I understand that it's a lot of money and I don't expect to get all of it but that is the amount I am trying to get between myself, my mother and anything I can do through the internet. It would hopefully be enough to get them a car and be enough that they have some money to help with the living expensies.

I know, I know it's asking a lot but even if you can't donate, please, please signal boost this as much as you can. I really want to be able to help people I care about.

Edit: After fiddling around a bit and some helpful donations, we have $780 dollars. Some of that needs to go to taking care of a bank issue if I can't get it worked out but that's how much we were able to dig up from bacially...everywhere. I'm still hoping to reach my inital goal but I thought I would give an update.
