Help Me Out (Of Poverty)

For two years, now, I've been trying to lift myself up by my own bootstraps. And I've failed.

I've never been any good at asking for help, so those few times I managed to swallow my pride and do it, I refused to ask for enough help to make a difference. Now, at long last, I realize, I can't do it alone. I have no car, no, real food, and no path forward without a helping hand.

My only sources of income is my computer, and it is dying bit by bit. The hardware is failing, and I can only do so much to keep it running. For most of the last 2 years, I've 100 or more hours per week, and barely made enough money to stumble to the next week, the next crisis. I need another way.

Your donation goes toward mitigating the damage. Replacing this aged machine, buying food and shelter, and most of all time. Time to change jobs, to find work that will allow me improve my situation, rather than just exist. I can't begin to properly explain what this help will do for my well-being because I can hardly imagine it. I can say that, beyond opening the space I need to find better work, these funds will enable me to begin really pursuing my dreams. There are several opportunities I simply haven't had the time for, and they are another type of time your donation could buy.

My time is short, so every second counts, and every little bit helps.

Thank you for reading, and thank you for caring.
