HI THERE, EVERYONE! MY NAME IS TANNER, AND I REALLY, REALLY NEED YOUR HELP.
I’m a 28-year-old non-binary person with some long-term mental health issues that I’ve been away from work with for quite some time while I try to get them dealt with once and for all after ignoring them for most of my life. Up until fairly recently, I was doing really, really well with that, but unfortunately, we’ve hit a bit of a snag!
My landlord has decided that he wants to sell the apartment that I live in, and I am being evicted on August 7th.
Because I’m currently claiming benefits due to my being medically unfit to work, I’m having an enormous amount of difficulty finding a new home - private landlords just don’t want to consider a person claiming benefits as a tenant, it turns out! This means that I’m entirely dependent upon my local authority’s social housing scheme to rehome me, and with one week to go, we’ve come no closer to finding anything. In addition, they’re also stating that they do not have an obligation to shelter me as I do not have any children and am not currently on suicide watch. As of August 7th, I will be out on the streets with nowhere to go.
My family are supporting me in any way they can, but they simply don’t have the money to help me or house me, so I’m facing this on my own!
I need money to feed myself, to get my things moved into storage and to get myself set up in whatever new place I end up living in, whenever that happens, but my current budget is already stretched as tight as can be after paying off my remaining bills, debts and rent, and I just don’t have anything left to spare.
You can really help me out by donating via PayPal at email@example.com at any time, and believe me when I say that every single penny counts! Whatever you can give will be a huge help to me!
I’d offer commissions, but my computer will be going into storage and I will be unable to fulfill any requests until I’m set up with broadband in my new home. In the meantime, please help me with funds for food, moving costs and my mobile contract so that I can stay in contact with my friends and family. Everything helps!
If you can’t give, please, please, please circulate this post as much as you can! Even after August 7th, continue reblogging and signal boosting - that’s when I’ll need your help the most!
Thanks so much, everyone!
