Help us move! <3
We’re a couple of artisans and their support cat, living as household staff in NYC and working for room and board; but our employers cannot afford to keep us on or pay their rent any longer, and so we’re having to move on. Since we worked for room and board, we couldn’t build up a savings, and have no severance pay. We are going to be looking for work as soon as we hit Minnesota, but first we have to get there, and feed ourselves when we do.
Some kindly folk in the Twin Cities of MN have offered us a home, and a dear friend is flying up to be our driver, and a few kind folks here on tumblr have helped out; but getting from here to there, and being able to eat when we do get there, costs more than we have raised.
We need just a little more to help cover the rest of the cost of renting a small van (not a moving van but a regular van), and feeding ourselves and our kitty cat while we’re looking for work. Even $6 buys a week’s worth of food for our kitty, so anything you can give would help.
Our reward prizes will be unique to the fundraiser, but you can find examples of J’s work here at our Etsy shop. (J is the rainbow-haired one). You can get to our Gofundme page by clicking the photo, or this link here.
What a great message. I wish all characters were this nice. Does anyone know what this is from?
my sister: i just realized something
my sister: gaston is a nice guy.
me: ...? um, no, sorry, he's an asshole.
my sister: no, no, no, gaston is a 'nice guy'. think about it. he spends the whole beginning of the movie trying to be friendly to belle. everyone else in that town thinks she's a bookish freak with a crazy man for a father, but gaston like, talks to her and sort of tries to take an interest in her activities and compliments her and stuff with the complete 100% expectation that she's going to pay him back by being in a relationship with him. he tunes out what she actually says because he doesn't really think of her as a person, just a pretty trophy who should react to him the right way if he does the right things.
my sister: and then when she hooks up with someone else, he gets all angry and shouty and insists that this other guy is a monster and she's lost her damn mind because she was supposed to fall for HIM, not someone else, and then he goes and stirs up the townsfolk into an angry mob and turns the whole thing into a witch hunt over his wounded pride.
my sister: gaston is a nice guy.
You may not be able to see your own beauty or love yourself but one day, someone will. You have only lived such a small part of yourself, you will never know what the future brings. So, keep going. Hold on. You are never alone. ♥
For my lovely followers whom I love dearly and would be very much aggrieved if I ever found out that they were gone.
