At the suggestion of some fellow poor artists, I figured I’d update some stuff and tell everyone in the world what support I need right now.
My current situation:
- I have a slight cost of living (not fancy living just living) increase that I can do nothing about.
- Partner and I are both in dire need of some basic shit that we just don’t have money for right now. I’m talking underwear that fits, socks. A few pairs of jeans/pants each. Camis/tanks/tees. Basics.
- We need to stock our pantry. Non-perishables, heavy stuff, because my partner has mobility issues and getting a good stock up has been impossible between that, my schedule and the cost.
So really what we need is help. We need a chunk of cash to explicitly use for this shit.
I also have some creative projects in the works but have decided on putting them away for now until I can get our household a little bit more stable in our current situation.
So that said.
What I need right now is signal boosts, paying work that isn’t like a job (I will talk about that in a second), and donations/tips/sales.
Here are the many things:
If you aren’t down with cash and want to do something material. Here’s my amazon list. I have some stuff I need but most of it is for funsies stuff.
Now the job thing.
I have a full time job still. I make just barely enough to cover bills if we eat poorly etc. I was considering (again) a part time job but, just recently I’ve worked 6 of 7 days in a row a few times and I am paying for it heavily. I just physically can’t anymore and there’s that.
Also, real real talk. I really want a chance to have some stuff just taken care of so I’m not spending my little savings or just having a chance to feel secure enough in that we have a bunch of shit we need so I can continue to work as i have been.
And that’s it. That’s what I need. Like my Gofundme says, my lil family just needs a leg up.
