[personal profile] a_phoenixdragon still needs help!

Her GoFundMe is here, so if anyone can spare a penny or two (or more) that would be great.

I can't imagine picking up my family and moving cross country, with no safety net, on the hope and belief that surely tomorrow will be better than today. I hope and pray that everything will work out for them. So please help if you can. I'm sure every little contribution will make a difference.

Although if you want to do something - other than attend a women's march - you could always donate to Mandy's Go Fund Me as she still needs all the help she can.

So I have gotten the GFM campaign set up - and it is already live on FB. If you could please pass it along, I would be ever so thankful to you!:

Okay guys I really really really REALLY hate asking others for money. But my abusive mom is holding all my money and my bank account [which is definitely going to change once I get my new job] and it's so hard to ask her for money cause she gets all pissy and angry for having the audacity to ask.

As a result I barely have anything in my savings which I was hoping to use for an escape fund and I am overdrafted this week. If you could please be kind enough to either spare something or Signal Boost this I will be greatly appreciative. And I really really really need to buy groceries this week

There are two ways you can donate.

You can either:

Only Donate Three Dollars [or multiples of three] to my Ko-fi account


Send directly to my Paypal

Thanks guys and lots of love.

[profile] kita0610 came up with a fabulous idea:

Someone talented needs to make a Trump video to Pretty Fly For A White Guy.

Go on - you know you want to!!!

...but it needs to go a touch further. If you can, spread the word and keep it going! We're about a third of the way through and we just need to be able to cover gas, electric and insurance at this point.

Hubby may have a job soon (keep your fingers crossed!! *Squees and tries to not jinx it!!*), which should (hopefully) help with rent, but if we need to get a boost there, I will let everyone know. For now, we're hanging in there, we just need to get a little more momentum going!

Thank you, thank you, thank you - for all that you do! You have all been so, so amazing these last couple of months and it is heartening and uplifting to have such an awesome online family! Blessings to you all...and thank you - from my little family to each and every one of you! Hopefully we will come to a better place soon. One where we can pay forward all the kindness we have received.

That would be fantastic!!

Just need to get that tad bit further, guise. Feel free to share, tweet and boost this whereever you can. And thank you, thank you once more!

which could use some more love. Am wondering how one (so very lovely) family can have so much bad luck. Also the American benefits system is... ridiculous. I hope Hillary has a plan to fix it.

...and did another GoFundMe campaign. I'm really looking forward to hubby getting that job - but until then, any and all help would be appreciated! Link can be found here:

If you can, please boost the signal (here, FB, Twitter - matters not), it would mean the world to us over here! And thank you, thank you for always listening, always being supportive - and being the warm, sweet folks you always are!

I no longer have a Facebook, but I have managed to set up a GoFundMe account anyhow. If you can, please share this on your Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or even here at Livejournal. I need to be able to get these funds and pull forward if I can and I'm rather out of options at this point...even if you can only share/pimp/signal boost, it would mean a lot to me!

My GoFundMe Account

Thank you, always and bless you.

Wish me luck, guise!

Well, the header is the cliffnotes version of the mess that I am currently dealing with in my house, and of course, I would have to break my... break from LJ with bad news. Jared is offshore, as well, so I'm currently on my own, in a house with no central heating or running water. I promise there's a cheerier post coming on the tails of this one, and if you don't want to hear about my miserable life, feel totally un-judged if you keep on scrolling. Details under the cut.

We are only a little way away from our goal, guise. I hate to ask again, but if you can share, repost and tweet once more, we may actually make it to the 22nd. :D I am posting the updated links here to make it a little easier -

Thank you so, so much for all of your help! I couldn't have made it this far without you all!

Edit: I woudn't ask again like this, but I just made the car payment and the insurance came out of the account yesterday. We are down to about 50 dollars (maybe a little less) in the bank account. This is the only reason I am reposting and asking for help once more....thank you for listening, always! And thank you for all that you have done for us!

Save the Strand, London: Don't demolish 152-158 the Strand.

Stop the demolition of 152 – 158 the Strand. This delightful group of buildings represent London as it was before and after the Great Fire giving character and life to one of London's most historic streets. Save these buildings from destruction and incorporate them into the development proposals for the campus [for King's College London].

The very lovely [livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon is looking for help (funds!) to prevent her family being evicted. You can find out more about the situation and help here. Hopefully some people can help or pass it on.

(She's one of the most encouraging and enthusiastic members of the DW fandom & my flist, and never fails to try and help other people in any way she can - I really hope she can get the amount she needs ($1400) now. <3)

([livejournal.com profile] lost_spook said it all. Please boost the signal.)

Would anyone be able to do an animated icon of Missy dancing? I found a gif (embedded below), but it needs to be cut down and turned into something no larger than 40KB...


(In other news life is busy with Christmas cards, Darcy's birthday, Office Christmas dinner, general work/life and I am trying to reply to comments... Oh and I 'decorated' my LJ.)

We’re losing all our Strong Female Characters to Trinity Syndrome.
Bringing in a Strong Female Character™ isn’t actually a feminist statement, or an inclusionary statement, or even a basic equality statement, if the character doesn’t have any reason to be in the story except to let filmmakers point at her on the poster and say “See? This film totally respects strong women!”

Why I'm Finally Speaking Up About What Terry Richardson Did to Me
I would keep being the girl who could shrug it off and joke about it; no one can feel sorry for the girl who’s laughing. That is, unless no one else is laughing along with you.

Why does sexism persist in the video games industry?
The issue arose after James Therien, technical director at European gamemaker Ubisoft, told trade publication VideoGamer that the latest instalment of Ubisoft hit Assassin's Creed would not feature any playable female characters because it would have "doubled the work".

Also - does anyone know of a Clara moodtheme? I've googled, but can't find one. :(

ETA: And some good news: Sudan death sentence woman freed.

As I mentioned, Border Patrol won a Student Academy Award. And now they've actually got to *get* there. So they set up a fundraiser (getting to LA ain't cheap):


Follow the link for more details.

(What strikes me is how diverse they are. The writer/director is German. Darcy is obv. British, as is the Editor (who happens to have cerebal palsy), the other Producer is Indian, and the Director of Photography is American. Let that cheer you for a moment, after the abysmal elections.)

Will now go hide under a rock. But if you have Facebook, would you mind sharing? Thank you.
