I don’t often ask for help, but here goes nothing:
Recently, my entire life has exploded. Mostly, this means that I have hit a huge financial wall–between a recent pest control emergency that cost a huge amount of money, followed very quickly by a series of medical bills that have destroyed my soul (I was an aspiring long distance runner until a major hip injury got me in February and has continued to get me since), and continued payments on things I have always had (student loans, rent, credit cards, etc), I’ve found myself smashed between a rock and a very hard place. My savings is soon to be depleted and I’m very quickly approaching panic.
If you feel inclined to help a librarian out, then there are a few things you can do. First, is spread the word–sharing this post with others is the easiest and fastest way for me to find help. Beyond that, there are many other ways to toss a few dollars my way:
1. Purchase something from my etsy shop:
2. Purchase a gig from my Fiverr page:
Giving services in exchange for help makes me feel much more comfortable–if you don’t need any of these, buy it for a friend! My haikus make great birthday card insides.
If you really just would rather give me money, I finally broke down and made a gofundme:
Every donation gets a personalized haiku on the back of an old card catalog entry card mailed to them. Promise.
Sending you all my love, all my best wishes, and all the positive energy I can produce.
