$5000 should cover buying groceries and food (~$1000), travel expenses such as taking bus rides to work and from where I am now to my new place (~$500-$1000) and hopefully 1-2 month's rent depending on where I am able to go (rent varies from $750-$2000 per month in different areas). I will need so much more in the coming months, but if I even reach close to this amount it will be a miracle. I need this as soon as possible, as every day I stay here I become more afraid that the situation will escalate further. I plan to leave immediately after I have enough for a room, and hopefully earn the rest of the funds I need after I am out of this house.
If you are uncomfortable with donating, I also do art and portrait commissions. Please message my social media if you have any clarifying questions. Even $5 could help me eat tonight or cover the tail end of a moving cost. No donation is too small. Please share and give. Thank you so much for your time.
