I have never written a post like this before, and I feel so fucking terrible about this—but I have SEEN Tumblr work magic before, and I’m at my wits’ end.
Tumblr, I am in love with the most amazing, wonderful, hard-working, genuinely decent man. He is smart, extremely patient, and has honestly taught me so much about myself in this short time. I want to be with him for a very long time, and he feels the same.
Unfortunately, he is on the brink of homelessness. Due to college debt and other factors, he hasn’t lived in an apartment/house of his own for the past two years. He’s been staying with friends and, up until very recently, was rooming with a “friend” who put him up for almost a year.
This friend has now canceled the lease unexpectedly and moved out all of their things, and in the process has managed to steal some of my boyfriend’s belongings, including the alarm clock he needs in order to get up at 4:30am just to catch the bus to his 6:30 am job. This job is important to him, and the only source of income he has right now.
The “friend” also took the Internet router they both shared, the television, the phone and all of the edible food in the apartment. My boyfriend only eats when he sees me, which is only once or twice when he can take the bus out here.
My boyfriend and I have realistically a week to find a new apartment but, if he moves into a motel for a week or so, we have extra time. We are working frantically; I have not been sleeping. What little leads we have taken have all managed to be duds.
I am not asking for much, Tumblr—just for some money to keep my boyfriend safe. I don’t have contact with him much anymore, and it’s killing me inside that I can go days without knowing where he is or if he is safe. I just need $250 dollars to help him with food and the motel.
$160 dollars will go to putting him into a $40/night motel for four days.
$40 dollars will go to putting the rest of his belongings into a storage for two months.
$50 dollars will go into buying him groceries for two weeks so he can eat.
Please send anything you can through PayPal to email@example.com. (If you send the money as a gift, Paypal won’t take any fees out!)
Anything will help; one or two dollars here or there. If you cannot give, but read through this post, thank you so much. Please considering reblogging or signal boosting so that others can help. My askbox is open in case anyone has any questions about where their money will be going.
Thank you everyone!
