This is my fantastic husband, Charlie, and me, Mara. (aka fattyforever)
We are in the most desperate financial situation of our adult life. We have been without power for 4 days now, with no clear end in sight. My husband and I have been searching for any type of assistance or emergency loan to get us through this time, but our personal or family help is all tapped out, and no emergency assistance organizations will help us.
We were barely able to afford rent last month, and only got it paid this past Monday under threat of eviction.
My husband works full time, but due to his students loans going unpaid, he has been put on garnishment until the end of August, so we are lucky when we get half his normal salary on payday. I recently was laid off from my position due to a company merger, and am currently looking for work of any kind.
To make the situation worse, our car is limping along on it’s last legs, in dire need of repair. We have been driving around on a donut for the past week due to a flat tire we can’t replace. Our driver’s side window broke yesterday and will no longer roll up, and our brakes are giving out.
On top of that our cats are being eaten alive by fleas, and we don’t have the money to get them flea medicine or a bug bomb for the house.
I’ve never been in a situation like this before, where I truly had no where to turn. Which is why I really, really need your help Tumblr. I’ve set up a gofundme acccount for donations. I have seen Tumblr make some amazing things happen, and just this once I need that amazing thing to happen to me.
Anything would help us at this point. I know a lot of you out there are going through difficult financial times as well, so if you could help us out with a signal boost, it would make all the difference.
Also, kind thoughts and words are always appreciated. Hopefully with your help, Tumblr, we can get through this.

I know this isn’t what I normally post on this blog, but I am in a really desperate situation. Please help/signal boost!
