Glad I saw this! An excellent way to spend a few minutes on Earth Day!
Except for emergency services after a disaster
there really is no valid reason to buy bottled water.
Square Cash is a FREE app for your phone that lets you send cash to friends using your debit card. It's secure and really fast too.
If you sign up with my invite. First, our accounts will exchange $1 to confirm your account. Once it's confirmed Square Cash will give each of us $5!
And once it's set up off you decide to help more it would be an easy way to do it.
I have had no work for the past two months and another month to go before anything is on my books. My rent is covered but that's about it. There's no grocery money, no pet supply money, no gas money and I am far enough behind on my storage I might lose it.
At this time rather than do a Go Fund Me or take money from friends who can't afford it I'd rather get help in a way that does something for you too! If a big chunk of my friends list went for this I could really catch up but even if I could get 20 people to sign up it would be huge! They would each get $5, but that's a total of $100 for me and NOTHING out of their pockets!
LIVING A LIFE OF NOT VERY QUIET DESPERATION
I let my hopes jump.up a little this morning when one person followed through with the Square Cash, another has promised to do it and three more people said they'd consider it. But now I'm realizing that my hope of getting at least twenty people to do it was possibly just dumb.
I don't want to spam people with requests but I really am rather desperate. Here's a way I could see small amounts accruing for me while doing something nice for people at the same time. I really hope more people do see the post and respond but that hope is slim.
If people won't help when they can make money doing it, why would they help with a Go Fund Me?
I am starting to think I will never recover from the devastation of the past few years. The reality has set in that I cannot do it on my own. It's just impossible.
I am very grateful that my disability covers my housing. But losing my storage and being locked out, unable to get in to get things I need. That's deja vu. Going hungry. My cat going hungry. Not being able to go anywhere of do anything.
That's really not ok right now.
I've always been one to jump to the aid of people any way I can, even when I myself had nothing. I've been determined that I am going to make it despite all of the things I've had thrown at me in life but today I am feeling like the bad guys might win.
My hope is a tiny flickering flame. Don't let it go out.
