Unfortunately, he’s been having a tough go of it recently. Just a few days ago, his computer died on him, which wouldn’t have been much of a problem, except his mom is currently unemployed, so they do not have enough money to just go out and buy a new one. And that’s because his parents split up about a year and a half ago, and now his Dad is kicking Bobby and his mother out of their house on August 15th since Bobby has finished high school. So all money they do have right now is being used to try and find a new place to live in just three short weeks.
So, he could really use a bit of a helping hand right now. And that’s where you guys come in- fortunately, Bobby and his mother have a paypal account: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you also have a paypal account, you can log on to your account and send money to Bobby by saying you’re sending money to a friend, putting in an amount, and then sending it to that email up there.
This is a plea on Bobby and his mother’s behalf for a little charity from any and all his friends out there. Any bit of money or donation you can spare to him would be very much appreciated in this very difficult time. And even if you cannot spare any money, please signal boost this post to your followers and any other blogs you can to help this good man and his mother out of a hole.
I’m opening for emergency commissions and now accepting donations, the button on the side of the page.
I assumed I would have enough money for gas for my move, since I’ve traveled a similar distance before, but once we sat down and tried to figure it out, no matter which way you slice it 700$ isn’t going to be enough for the trip. I need to raise at least 400$ more for gas alone. My car, it seems, is at the end of it’s life and gets next to nothing MPG (a whopping 8!). Me not knowing much about cars just thought it was getting close or similar too the same MPG it was back in its hay day. Big mistake.
And I have to move. He’s bought a plane ticket, spent 600+ dollars and would have to pay more to cancel, and even if we did do that my lease is up, and I wouldn’t have a place to stay. So I’m going to work myself as hard as I can to raise the money I need.
So yes, if you can please feel free to use the donate button (even 50 cents could help, really!), or if you’d like a commission send it in an ask. Since these are going to be emergency commissions instead of my for fun quickies, they will be 30$ each for full body full color.
Thank you, and rest assured I’ll be working hard on my own as well, picking up extra hours at work if I can on top of this, to scrape enough to make the trip.
If you can help please do.
Hi everypony… so I got some very terrifying news recently. Due to financial problems, my fiancé and I are going to be evicted soon. We’re going to live with his parents for a while, but we have loads of school bills left to pay. I’ve watched my fiancé work himself to death for a very meager wage and I want to help bring in some money for us.
So I’m taking commissions for pony art! (and every other kind of art, really!) I’m going to keep my prices as low as possible. But don’t worry! I’ll work hard to make each one a masterpiece!
I have three tiny little rules. :3
1. I charge with paypal.
2. I’ll upload your drawing as soon as I get payment!
3. You can be as picky as you want! I actually would prefer pickiness.
Will Do / Won’t Do
I’m very open minded and willing to draw anything! :3 Send me a message!
$2 - Quick Sketch
$5 - Sketch
$10 - Inks/Clean Lines
$15 - Color
$20 - Color with Background
($1 added to base fee for every extra pony.)
If you would like to place a commission, message me through tumblr, Deviantart, or email.
Please don’t feel pressured to commission a pony! If you’re in a bad situation too, just reblog this message to spread awareness! Thank you so much for your time. :)
(I’ve been trying to post this for awhile, so if you see like 5 of these tomorrow I apologize)
If anyone in Florida is willing to be a foster to a pit mom and her 8 newborn puppies, today (1/7/12) is their last day at Orange County Animal Services in Orlando before they are ALL euthanized. The mom will take care of her babies and all vet bills and whatnot are taken care of by the rescue group, all you have to do is provide a temporary home for them. The rescue group can even possibly arrange for her and the puppies to be transported to you depending on where in Florida you live, but they can’t pull her from death row until they get a foster. Contact Passionate Pet Rescue.
Help a life out!
Not ponies, but do please spread this, everypony!
I would love for this blog to be all-encompassing, as in, I’d love to feature all sorts of fanworks. I have yet to post any fanfiction because, well, I don’t really read fanfiction, but I know some of you do.
Please leave suggestions in my submission box. I am looking for Rarity-centric fics (naturally). Shipping is cool. Nothing cloppy please. Link to the piece and I will look over it.
reblogging for the day crowd
Go help fuckyeahrarity out
By far two of the most dangerous and harmful bills introduced today, not only to US citizens but to the entire world, are Protect-IP and SOPA, proposed censorship systems for the internet based on the interests of the entertainment industry. It sounds ridiculous, especially because you probably haven’t heard of it before, but they’re very real.
The MPAA, RIAA, Hollywood knows that they have been flying in CEOs of as many companies as possible, recruiting people to get petition signups at malls in California, and here’s the big point— they know they have gotten their message through to Congress — the worst bill in Internet history, the one where government and their corporations get unbelievable power to take down sites, threaten payment processors into stopping payment to sites on a blacklist, and throw people in jail for posting ordinary content is about to pass before the end of this year. The only thing that is going to stop Hollywood from owning the Internet and everything we do, is if there is a big surprise Internet backlash starting right now.
PROTECT IP (S. 968)/SOPA (HR. 3261) creates the first system for Internet censorship - this bill has sweeping provisions that give the government and corporations leeway and legal cover for taking down sites “by accident,” mistakenly, or for NOT doing “enough” to protect the interests of Hollywood. These bills that are moving very quickly through Congress and can pass before Christmas aim to give the US government and corporations the ability to block sites over infringing links posted by their users and give ISPs the release to take any means to block peoples’ sites, including slowing down your connection. That’s right, some say this bill is a workaround to net neutrality and is bigger than net neutrality.
And this is how it will affect you:
Let’s make one thing clear from the get-go: despite all the talk about this bill being directed only toward “rogue” foreign sites, there is no question that it targets US companies as well. The bill sets up a system to punish sites allegedly “dedicated to the theft of US property.” How do you get that label? Doesn’t take much: Some portion of your site (even a single page) must
- be directed toward the US, and either
- allegedly “engage in, enable or facilitate” infringement or
- allegedly be taking or have taken steps to “avoid confirming a high probability” of infringement.
If an IP rightsholder (vaguely defined – could be Justin Bieber worried about his publicity rights) thinks you meet the criteria and that it is in some way harmed, it can send a notice claiming as much to the payment processors (Visa, Mastercard, Paypal etc.) and ad services you rely on.
Once they get it, they have 5 days to choke off your financial support. Of course, the payment processors and ad networks won’t be able to fine-tune their response so that only the allegedly infringing portion of your site is affected, which means your whole site will be under assault. And, it makes no difference that no judge has found you guilty of anything or that the DMCA safe harbors would shelter your conduct if the matter ever went to court. Indeed, services that have been specifically found legal, like Rapidshare, could be economically strangled via SOPA. You can file a counter-notice, but you’ve only got 5 days to do it (good luck getting solid legal advice in time) and the payment processors and ad networks have no obligation to respect it in any event. That’s because there are vigilante provisions that grant them immunity for choking off a site if they have a “reasonable belief” that some portion of the site enables infringement.
Prime targets, eff.org says, are sites like twitter and tumblr.
But for now, we still have the power we’ve always had to stimulate change and speak up against this censorship, using exactly what these bills will try to stifle. ANYONE who uses tumblr should sign this petition and get the word out. Part of the strength of Protect-IP and SOPA is that they’re so under the radar right now. It’s our job to change this. Don’t let them pull the wool over your eyes.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO STOP PROTECT-IP AND SOPA:
- Sign the petition at change.org.
- Write a letter to your congressperson.
- Sign up for updates at fightforthefuture.org.
PLEASE DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN AND REBLOG THIS POST TO GET THE WORD OUT!!!
Hey, guys. I know this isn’t pony-related but it’s…kind of massive. Spread the word, everypony!
