Hi everyone. I'm a musician from New York City currently living in Berlin. Last night I had my wallet stolen from me. It had my IDs, my credit card (which I had to report stolen), and cash for bills and living expenses.
This is really embarrassing, but I need help to cover the costs of new IDs, credit card replacement, and as much help in possible in recovering some of the money that was lost, and I need it as soon as possible. I have to leave this sublet in 10 days as per the agreement and have to pay for my next sublet. I have to be able to get food. It's very hard for a black queer artist to make money, especially when you're in a pinch like this and need a large sum quickly. I have been working myself ragged trying to keep my head above water trying to make something of myself overseas, and this loss feels like a giant slap in the face to all my efforts. I don't have parents I can ask and while I hate to have to ask complete strangers, I know that I have little choice and can only hope that people can surprise me with compassion and generosity in my time of need.
If you can't help, I ask that you please share it on social media; you never know who might see it who might be in a better position to help me out.
