Hi everyone, it's Artemis Stardust. As many of you know, my partner Ryann has been dealing with a severe illness throughout this year.
We recently got confirmation that he is reacting to toxic mold in our living environment, and we must move out of the building as soon as possible.
We are going to be downsizing so we can rent a place to ourselves, likely a 1-bedroom apartment or studio.
This move is going to be expensive for a few reasons.
We don't have any local or personal capacity to move our furniture and other belongings, so we will have to hire a moving company. We've already shopped around for good pricing, and the cost for this is about $3000 for packing, moving, and transport.
We are also going to need to buy fresh towels and linens to make sure no mold spores are being transported into our new living space.
In addition to these costs, getting a new apartment requires application, processing, and holding fees, not to mention the introductory deposit and first month's rent.
On top of those things, we don't have a vehicle of our own, so we'll need to cover rides for ourselves and to get the cats transported.
We have enough income to cover rent from there. We are aiming to move in mid-June 2023. That doesn't give us much time, so please share this fundraiser everywhere you can! Spreading the word helps a lot.
If you can spare anything to support this vital move, it would make a huge difference to us.
