UPDATE: NO LONGER RECEIVING FUNDS THROUGH GFM PLEASE DONATE TO LISTED VENMO & CASHAPP
Organizing this fund for my sibling who needs them urgently. Share and donate! Here are words from them explaining their situation. "for my safety my identity is being concealed and so will the name/relationship(to me) of my abusers. my whole life i've been living in unstable home conditions where i've been mentally/physically/verbally/emotionally abused by family members. i battle with multiple disabilities ie: (bipolar disorder, adhd, severe asthma) and am currently not medicated because my abuser cancelled my insurance without my knowing. september of 2020 my sick great grandparent who i take care of full time was hospitalized so i was staying with my abuser until further notice. there was an altercation between two of my family members, i tried to break it up and ended getting into a physical fight with one of them. another family member returned home during the fight and everything escalated from there. that night one family member held a knife to the other's throat trying to kill them. i managed to get into contact with a friend and was able to pack of few of my things and stay with them for a few days. i ended up being homeless for most of september. since then there have been multiple occasions where my life is threatened. recently someone close to my abuser came across one of my social media platforms (where i am publicly out as a trans femme) and mentioned it to my abuser, i was then forced to delete everything about me being trans and to disappear from social media altogether. not only am i not allowed to be myself, but i have no escape from this. like i said before, i take care of my sick grandparent full time, and i am unable to work bc they can't be left alone throughout the day. i make money from having a few clients a week (i can't mention my profession for safety reasons) but there is not much to save after i buy food for the week + any bills i help my grandparent with. i will be using these funds for a car + finding somewhere safe to live + rent until i get on my feet. thank you and anything helps"
