Okay guys.. I’ve never done this before. Please bear with me.
This is our family dog, Arnold! As you can probably tell, he is a pit-mix. While he has had a few health issues over the past few years, we have struggled through it with him - from tumors, to hernias, to arthritis, and then some - but today things really went from bad to worse. Arnie is suffering from paralysis of the larynx, and it’s going to require some emergency surgery, the price-tag of which is between $5,000 and $6,000.
We don’t have that kind of money… but I’m willing to work for it. I love this dog. He doesn’t even live with me, but let me reiterate, I love this dog. Our whole family LOVES this dog. He’s on the older side - or, well, WE THINK, due to the fact he was adopted out of a rescue program, we aren’t 100% sure how old he is, although those cataracts of his are tellin’ a tale - but he has a few good years left in him, and I’m not going to give them up without a fight.
We have to make the decision by TOMORROW, May 11th, if we are going to be able to pay for this. Apparently a payment plan is negotiable, but this is still a LOT of money as far as our family funds go. We are riddled with health issues on the human side of things, too, so our usual buffer for pet bills just isn’t gonna cut a few thousand bucks.
I have set up a little crowd-funding thing here, as the elegantly titled Save Arnie-Ru! There are more specifics to read about if you want to click it and check it out. If you show me a screen-cap of your receipt page, you can e-mail it to me, message me, whatever you prefer, I will draw you somethin’. It’s just that easy. Donate a buck? GET A SKETCH. Donate more? I mean, hey, it’s negotiable. I’ll see what I can do! And I will do my best. I will take requests! Let me know when you send me your receipt if you had something in mind and I’ll try to be flexible. I am also putting up a DONATION BUTTON on the front of my blog, which I have never done, before. If you want to send me a note through that saying what you would like, I can e-mail you the picture through whatever is listed on your PayPal.
I think that’s about it, although I am sure I am forgetting something. I feel pretty scrambled. This is a tough thing to do, in very little time - especially when you haven’t had to do it, before! REBLOGS ARE VERY APPRECIATED, thank you so much in advance for your consideration!
I just got a call from her, and it looks like she’s going to be offline from now until about Friday at the earliest, Tuesday at the latest. Laptop went to shit.
Thus, I propose a little ~RELIEF FOR RELIEF WORKER!~
It’s looking more likely that the finances needed to get even the tiniest source…
I can’t think of a person who deserves to have access to internet - slash - entertainment more, so if you guys could pitch in a buck for Ivory it would help her out a lot! REMEMBER: SHE’S A MORTICIAN SO YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU NEED ONE OF THOSE ON YOUR SIDE!
while we’re on the subject of monies, you know who else is awesome?
help a love out

QUICK-DRAW HEADSHOT COMMISSIONSI smashed up the front of my car! Not that this is of consequence to you, dear reader. What is of maybe-consequence, is that I am offering natural media headshot commissions to soften the blow to my fragile economic homeostasis. All drawings will be on 6x6 pale cream 70lb acid free paper, and I will be happy to mail it to you!*TWO OPTIONS. Double?? Fun??For $15.00 USD, you get an hour of my headshot time. The media of choice will be a surprise, though mixed graphite/colored pencil is likely.For $30.00 USD, you get however long it takes to make as sweet of a headshot as comes out. If you wanted something like, say, the second or fifth headshot, I’d recommend this option - heads like that take some time. Media will be a surprise - inks, Copic marker, colored pencil, gel pen, who even knows.THE RULEThe point of these commissions is a quick turn-around. I will contact you in whatever way you prefer when I begin the headshot, and contact you again when it is complete. No turn-around will be more than 24 hours. Payment will be taken prior to the start of the commission via Paypal - email@example.com .If you’re interested - please hit me up with reference and what option you’d like, plus address at my submit box, here .

Actor Robin Sachs (voice actor from such video game series as Mass Effect, Dragon Age, and Ethan Rayne in Buffy) recently passed away and his dogs Tiny and Fiona need help. Originally, they were placed in a shelter to be put up for adoption but someone has temporarily taken them for care, though they need permanent new homes. Details and information on contacting their current caregivers for adoption applications found here.
Hello Tumblr! I’m in a bit of a situation right now so I’m going to do an official signal boost post—
The lease for the apartment I live in is up at the end of the month, and I have nowhere to go. Ideally, I (and baby kitty Audrey, as pictured) need somewhere to stay through February at least. My intention is to get employed, save up enough money to afford the various things an apartment manager would want on a move-in (first and last rent, security deposit, pet deposit, etc.), and compensate my host/ess for their generosity once I’m stabilized.
So! If you live in the Seattle area, or have friends who live in the Seattle area, is there a chance you could help me out? I’d be more than happy to help out around the house, I’m clean and polite…hmm…I’m not sure how to go about advertising myself for things like this, but I can definitely answer any questions if you need specifics! You can email me for assured contact (lol tumblr askboxes).
If you can’t help me out, I’d still really appreciate a signal boost for the possibility of reaching out to someone who can. I’m looking into youth centers and shelters right now, but ahaha, I am super terrified of my prospects and would really appreciate a helping hand right now!
Thank you so, so much.
Okay so I really really need to open commissions again. I hate to be a sob story but I really need help; there’s been some financial talks lately, and things are looking pretty shaky. I need a doctor’s appointment, I have an outstanding hospital bill already, and my job doesn’t even pay enough to make rent by Minnesota cost-of-living standards (my girlfriend has been paying my half ever since I moved to California) and I have been looking for a new one but no success so far. There’s the additional threat of me having to live alone for a few months in the summer in a city where I make maybe a fourth of the average rent, and my girlfriend is most likely going to be studying abroad for a year in the future and we don’t know if we’ll be able to afford me tagging along with her. I would also really like to be able to visit my parents at least the week after Christmas, and I would also really like to not have to move back in with them over the summer and be a financial burden (my parents are not doing so great either, my dad has been having a lot of trouble with jobs the past several months).
So yeah that’s a lot of crap! We’re gonna be taking it one step at a time here, and while I job search I’m going to be taking commissions to at least try and help fund my trip to visit my parents. Right now it looks like I might be going alone if I get to go at all, which really really scares me as I have never flown alone before and I would really like to be able to bring Rudi along with me. Which is a lot of money. But for now I’m just aiming for at least $500.
Here’s the deal: I am willing to draw pretty much everything. I’ve never really received a compromising commission request before, but basically no porn and no gore?? OCs tv shows live action shows w/e I will draw it.
Let’s go $8 for a sketch, $12 for a basic colored headshot, $16 for a basic colored, and $24 for a full color with background. There’s also other stuff I can do? Like this white-glow effect for $10, and chibis for $5. Also, if you’d like to add another character, just take the price of whatever you’re choosing and minus $2 (ex; $8 sketch + $6 for extra oc). This doesn’t really apply to headshots.
So yeah!! If you guys are interested feel free to send me an ask, although I would really prefer if you email me! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll also be doing slots this time to try and keep myself motivated!
Any help is appreciated dudes if you want me to draw you a stupid little doodle for a dollar I WILL DO IT. Thank you!

My friend (who is black and latino) got some verbal harassment at a gas station tonight.
As a female minority that lives in the bible belt, even if I’m lucky that I go out in the day, but just be careful and I can’t believe this still has to be a thing but just be careful.
The danger is real in certain areas.
Charge your phones and keep alert.
already hearing reports of brawls in Texas and Florida during and after voting. :I
I hate to do this, but I really could use the money! So, I’m opening up commissions for anyone who may be interested. Above is just quick chart of examples and pricing, which can all be negotiated if you tell me what you want. Feel free to have a look around my blog if there is a certain style you would like me to go by.
Unless otherwise specified, all commissions will have a simple colored background. If you’d like something a bit more detailed, there will be an additional charge, but that can be negotiated as well.
Also, if you want something NSFW don’t be afraid to ask!
I currently only accept payment via paypal and can be contacted at email@example.com.
If you’re interested, please, by all means let me know! If not, or simply do not have the funds to do so, please do me the favor of passing this around. Thank you in advance to everyone! :>
