Help us survive the rest of 2018!

Hey, we're Cyrus and Melody! We're two disabled trans people on the verge of homelessness.

It's been a long year. After Melody was laid off in February they've been endlessly job hunting with no success, at the cost of their physical and mental health. We've exhausted all of our resources, we've sold nearly all of our belongings, we've had to rely on people's generosity just to get from month to month and frankly: we need a break.

If we can raise $2000, that will cover a couple months worth of rent/utilities and let us just... breathe, for the first time in nearly a year. Schedule doctor's appointments. Clean the apartment. Buy shoes that don't have holes in them. Get our cat a long overdue checkup. All the little things we simply haven't had the time or energy for when we don't even know how we'll survive from week to week.

Any and all help, whether its money, spreading the word, or just sending words of encouragement our way is greatly appreciated. If somehow we go above goal we promise to spend it spoiling our cat to make up for a year of having to eat cheap food and no new toys.

In any case thank you for taking the time to stop and listen! As thanks here's some cute photos of our cat. She hopes you have a lovely day.

copied from twitter:
It's just been one thing after another lately.

This week Mel got a brutal tooth infection and needed emergency dental surgery. They had an infection that came out of nowhere and had them in extreme pain for days, the dentists had to extract two teeth before they could finally get to it.

They cant exactly job hunt while recovering so we have to ask for help again. I moved the goal to $5000 just because i like having a nice round number, but like last time we're just trying to stay in the black so we can overdraw for rent again.

Thank you all so much! I know I might come off as a broken record but we seriously couldn't survive without everyone's help. <3

Hi everybody, Melody here.

Just wanted to give thanks to all who donated to help us. It's been a rough year and this just adds to the kindnesses we've received this year despite all that's happened since I was laid off.

This is going to let us make it through 2018, and hope that 2019 will treat us how all of you have. <3

URGENT UPDATE: We need to hit our goal within a week or we'll be evicted, and then we need January rent.

When we first started the campaign Mel's bank account was overdrawn by over $1000, and the plan was to get out of the red as well as be able to pay rent. However, that didn't work out.

Essentially, the bank wasn't going to let the rent payment through while it was still overdrawn. Fine. Thanks to all you amazing people we were going to be juuuust in the black long enough that the rent wouldn't be rejected a second time. Stressful but not the end of the world.

Then.... bills went through. Each time we were hit with a new overdraft fee, and each time we got help getting back out of the negatives something else went through. Keep in mind we had canceled these payments knowing we couldn't afford them, but they all went through anyways.

The landlord let us know they need to mail us an official 72 hour pay or evict notice, but because it goes through mail we have about a week to pay rent overall.

Normally rent is $1040, but there's a late fee on top of being $100 overdrawn, and we'll have nothing left for next month's rent so I've raised the campaign goal to reflect that.

We hate that we keep having to ask for more and more help, but we don't have a choice. If you're able to give or do anything PLEASE consider doing so. Donations, spreading the word, anything. Everything makes a difference.

Thank you so much to everyone who's donated so far, and thank you for taking the time to read this. Sammy still hopes you have a lovely day.
