Due to the generosity and compassion of, like, everyone, my needs are taken care of for the time being. Thank you all for your assistance. Keep being wonderful.
Some of you have shared posts over the past few months stating some variation on the offer that if any of your friends are in need of help in the midst of all of this, they should not be afraid to ask you.
Well, this is me asking.
My work instantly stopped in March, with the lockdown. I’ve been limping along since then on the one government stimulus check, the generosity of one very lovely person just after my surgery in April, and what little I had in the bank, all while my medical bills have been piling up.
I’m about to enter a new billing period with nothing now left in the bank* and only $200 worth of contract work on the horizon (not to be paid out until September 14th.)
Jon still has work and has been keeping us afloat, but it’s not enough and frankly the pressure is crushing him. Obviously, I have no idea when things will pick back up for dog walkers like me. Quite probably not until next year. Who knows? And I am definitely not well enough to go out job hunting or work shifts at the sorts of jobs that are available right now even if I could get one of them. (Nor would it be safe for me to do so.)
So, yeah. I could really use some of that community support you’ve been talking about, if you’re still in a position to offer it.
I don’t have Venmo or Ko-fi or anything fancy like that. Just good old-fashioned PayPal at vulcanelf[at]gmail[dot]com or paypal.me/dogwoodhousellc. Every little bit would help me pay off another medical bill or buy my meds and groceries.
Thank you for reading this all the way through, and I hope you’re all weathering the nightmare that is 2020 better than I am. ❤
*Except Kickstarter money that belongs to the TRAJELON project, which is not for me to spend on my own personal expenses. I just want to assure everyone that the TRAJELON money is safe and secure and there are no worries about that.
So sorry to hear you’re struggling. I’ve sent a contribution – sorry it isn’t more right now. 😘
Oh my goodness, thank you so much. It’s a lot to me and will definitely help. ❤
Sent you a little contribution. Wish it could be more, like the gift that let Harper Lee write “To Kill a Mockingbird”! https://www.businessinsider.com/harper-lees-present-to-kill-a-mockingbird-2016-2
Thank you so much, Sue. Even the slightest sum is a princely gift to me.
Sorry that I couldn’t send more. Lots of love!
No need to apologize for only saving my life a *little* bit! ❤
sending you lots of love and a very small something, really hope things will improve and that it will become safer to go out and so small things, Hariclea xx
Thank you, Hariclea!
Thank you so much for posting about this and I’m sorry to hear! I will talk to Jacob and see what we can do 🙂
I’m covered now, for the time being, thanks to like everyone. Thank you for being willing to help. Maybe pass on whatever assistance you were going to give to the next person you see who needs it. 🙂
