update: asking for help, rent, boosts okay
So I've given up on keeping my apartment, there's just no way to make it happen right now.
I'm gonna get a storage unit and start loading my stuff into it this weekend, and gonna plan to sleep in a rental car until I can save enough to buy a car of my own and just live in that until tax time comes and I can afford to get into a place with my rebate.
The thing is, I don't know when my eviction is gonna come through. Technically my lease is already terminated as per my rental agreement, but the landlord is on vacation and idk if her stand in is authorized to take any action re: evicting folks so I'm in a state of just, anxiety until I can get my stuff out of here, which I won't be able to do till my next paycheck.
So I'm asking, if anyone is able to help me get started a little sooner, I need about $200 to get a car rented and a storage unit secured. I'm *probably* gonna be fine till I get paid, but I'd feel a lot more secure if I had the process started at least. #TransCrowdFund #ShowUpForWishes #CrowdFund
uspol, chicago teacher strikes
> You can imagine the possibilities, from industry to industry and city to city, with working people using the leverage of organized labor to plug the gaps left by politicians, decade after decrepit decade. This is exactly the sort of thing that the left dreams about. And slowly, we see it moving from possibility into reality.
> The march moved and sounded and pulsed like an army. An army of teachers. It was led by drummers, who were followed by a woman with a microphone, leading chants. An assistant wheeled an A/V cart beside her with a speaker on it. The school had come to the street. The picket signs looked like a sea of lances. The mass of thousands, vibrating, strode down LaSalle Street, directly towards the Chicago Board of Trade. Well-fed and well-scrubbed men in fleece vests stared slack-jawed from the sidewalk. This was the army of labor, enveloping the headquarters of capital
Everyone helping out has gotten us closer, but we still don't have a way to secure a new place to live when they throw us out just to renovate these condo's

I recently went to a therapist’s appointment but also had to choose between eating and paying my phone bill. Now my account is negative and I need to help offset some charges.
If you can help, my Venmo is FarahT and my Paypal is: https://paypal.me/farahth (this one has my deadname). I would really appreciate the help.
🏩 unfortunate aid request 🏩 I’m a disabled/chronically ill afrolatinx trans person. My doctor thinks I have internal bleeding causing chronic anemia. He told me I need to get a colonoscopy & endoscopy ASAP (he tried to schedule it on my birthday next wk 😭). Problem is, it costs $250 per procedure for copay. I can’t afford $500. If anyone can help, I’d be so grateful. “Proof” in photos below. Plz boost. 💓
We're hiring still at Mozilla!
This feels squickily like self-promotion (which I hate), but some folks round here might find something interesting there.
I will also mention that we have ongoing efforts to recruit folks who are *not* like me - i.e. straight old cis white guys.
So, if you are *not* like me along any of those axes, I especially encourage you to give it a looksee.

PSA! Finding work for my friend who's a nutritionist/personal trainer. Please read because there's a lot to this :D Also please share! <3
My friend Jen has fibro, IC, depression, and anxiety. Two years ago she was hugely overweight and unfit, and walking ~100m was enough exertion that she'd feel sick afterwards. Today, she's lost 80kg in weight and is a qualified personal trainer and nutritionist. She does Krav, boxing, runs a community social walking group, teaches teens self-defense. (1/?)
Asking for financial assistance
I do not have enough money now to make it to my therapist appointment on Thursday, because I had to refill my laundry card yesterday.
I need $43 before tomorrow night to ensure that I have enough money to make it to both my therapy appointment and to see my father on Sunday.
Please help me out:

money (-), help needed
Hey, I'm a disabled queer who has been denied government support. Most of my income comes from commissions but since I suffered a significant back injury more than a week ago, i've mostly been out of commission (ha ha) while recovering and I'm already behind on my bills.
Anything to help would be greatly appreciated.
Can anyone send me $20 for food tonight. I’ve only ate one today because I have save spare rations for the rest of the week. Anything is appreciated
asking for help, rent, boosts okay
I'm feeling hopeless about keeping my apartment because my roomie screwed me on their share of rent and I'm just not making enough money to cover this place on my own.
Basically I need to come up with $1200 by tomorrow, or at least half of that would let me make a payment plan with the landlord. I had hoped I'd have my back pay from work by now, and if the roomie had paid me their whole share I wouldn't even be asking but I got an impending eviction notice and idk what else to do but ask for help (and panic obviously).
So I mean, I don't really have high hopes about making it in time but if I don't at least ask, then there's no hope at all so, if anybody's got a few bucks to spare, literally any amount helps, if not with keeping me from being evicted, then at least with the cost of having to find some place else to live and moving there.
