Why a proposed book-burning party was a Very Good Thing Indeed.
(PLEASE Watch this. Be proud of your libraries. And remember, it’s not about taxes. It’s about knowledge, and humanity, and access to the internet, and what libraries are and represent, and what librarians do.)
As a future hopeful librarian, this is REALLY important to me. Guys, please watch it and support your local libraries!
Can you help??
I am reposting this link to hopefully get it seen more. Below, I have copied the true, scary story of a local Baltimore area cosplayer who is in serious trouble. They have not gotten themselves into this situation, (they were screwed by their landlord) and are in dire need of any help you can give them. Please reblog and donate, if you can. All funds raised from my anime/manga sales post HERE will now be going towards this. The following text has been taken directly from her; name withheld at request for privacy.
I finally have the chance to speak myself on this matter.
Bluntly put, I am at risk of being homeless.
My mom and I found out that our “landlord” has not actually been making mortgage payments for three months, contrary to our belief. Yes. Three months. If we do not come up with $3600 by Sept 7, our house, our home, the house my grandfather built 52 years ago and has stayed in the family ever since, will go into foreclosure.
I, myself, am doing everything I physically can to make more money. I am working every shift my full time job can give me. I have taken on a second part time job to scrimp together more. But besides that, I can do no more.
A chip.in page has been started to also help raise money, but since they found out about my predicament through my girlfriend, it is under her name.
EDIT: All funds raised from the chip.in are legitimate and will be going into our mortgage payment fund. Please stop saying these are scams; not only is it false, but it is incredibly hurtful to me personally as it lessons the severity of my situation.
And that is that myself, my mother, 4 cats, and 2 dogs will soon be homeless if we do not come up with this money.
Please spread the word and donate if you can (http://neurotichyena.chipin.com/sav…..my-mates-house).
So, my job closed on June 9th for remodel, and I’ve been unemployed ever since. I have yet to see any of my supposed unemployment benefits come through and still don’t have an exact date on when my job should be re-opening. (It was supposed to be July 5th…) I’m running incredibly low on funds, had to cancel my trip to Otakon, and even after that, I am still coming up short for some of my bills. So now it’s come down to a large “garage sale” of my anime and manga collection.
TL;DR version: Need bill money, so I’m selling some of my well loved and well taken care of anime and manga collection. Please take a look at what I’m selling, and if you could also please reblog/signal boost. It only takes a second to click the reblog button!! <3
Anyway, onto the goodies!!
We had some last minute cast changes. Mako-chan / Sailor Jupiter will now be played by Ashley!
Happy to pass on the announcement. ;w; I hope I can do Mako-chan justice! <3
