Tamara, one of my dearest BFFs, who no matter what life throws at her, has been there for so many others, who has a gift for insightful and intuitive clarity,  and is a source of pee-your-pants-laughter, needs our help. 

TL/DR: Tamara needs $1500 to break her lease to move, $500 for the deposit for her new place and $1300 to fix her car, which she needs for her job.


Recently, it has become clear that her current landlord is racist and disapproving of her current romantic interest - which of course is none of his business - in addition to making it very clear that Tamara's daughter who lives a thousand miles away, is not welcome and must find other accomodations when she visits her mom. Plus the downstairs neighbor has pretty major issues with boundaries, and owns a nasty dog that bites people who also craps on Tamara's porch...It is a stressful, toxic place to live and Tamara needs to break her lease (costing 2 months rent, $1500) and move. It is affecting her health.

While this in itself is stressful when working long hours to make ends meet and still feed herself and her beloved pup, her car just broke down, and she needs that car for her job as she is required to drive many miles a week for it.  Repairs will be $1300.

She has a place to move to, but the deposit is $500, which, with the above situations, is tricky. She needs this by October 1st. She is facing homelessness, because all the need for money is piling up at once, as so often happens. 

Can we help a Thunder Woman out? She says she only needs "a few hundred to make it work" but seriously, she needs our help and we are a generous bunch so let's see if we can relieve some of her stress in proportion to her own huge heart. I'm asking with appreciation for us to come up with as much as we can to cover these unexpected costs.

I will be forever grateful for any amount you feel compelled to offer, and Tamara will be also.
