NOTE: I have closed this campaign due to fraudulent practices involving the GoFundMe payer, WePay. If anyone is interested in donating, please send your contributions to my PayPal via magdelen2501 [at] gmail [dot] com. Thank you!
Engage: Swallowing pride.
We’re down to the wire, kiddos. The idea of charity has always made my skin crawl. Not giving it to others, mind you. I love being able to support people in need. It’s the idea of people giving me charity that turns my stomach and sends me into fits of, “NOPE. I’m good! I got it all figured out! No need to worry SOMETHING SOMETHING BOOTSTRAPS.”
I’ve always been able to find a loophole, service, or a way to MacGuyver my way out of a rough spot.
I can’t seem to make it work this time. It’s really hard for me to admit that I’m out of ideas. But I am, so I’m forced to ask for help.
My GoFundMe campaign is currently up with a lofty goal of 10k. Will she reach it? Nobody knows. But I do know that the work I do is worth it. I want to write, design, film and make video games. I want to work. But I can’t do it from a shelter.
