I wanted to make a specific thread for this... Christianity seemed like the best forum for it, considering that helping the poor and suffering was one of Christ's foremost priorities, and I believe it should be ours also.

FFC is a very small community right now, but if you find something on this thread that you can signal boost into other communities (FA, DA, other forums, your RL family and friends, etc.), then great!

Please only post in this thread if you are posting about someone who needs some kind of RL support, whether it be emotional, spiritual, or financial. Do not post your intentions to provide support or your inability to provide support--PM the poster if you want to help/can't help but want to say something encouraging. I don't want anyone to feel guilty for being unable to help--let's just show who needs help and keep the helping relatively anonymous. If you just want us to pray for someone, put that in Prayer Requests (spiritual support would be, this person needs help finding a church, this person needs to talk to a pastor, etc... emotional support is, this person needs emails of encouragement, letters in jail, etc... financial support is, well, paypal).

It is perfectly acceptable to post here if *you* need financial help for something, also. (For emotional support, Prayer Requests or Overcoming is best for FFC members.) Just... keep your expectations low, as FFC is very small ^-^;

Let me start with something I came across on FA.

FA Artist Nervensaege is going to be without electricity next month, as she doesn't have the $250 needed to keep it going. If you want to donate or commission to help Nervensaege out, go over and comment on her journal here.

It might be too late to save her electricity for the coming month, but at least we can help get it re-instated!

Nervensaege's commission prices are also very reasonable... $15 for very unique and stylish inked lineart; $10 for similar pencil sketches. Check out her TOS here.

If you are unable to donate, you can always signal boost using your FA account, or to people whom you think would enjoy her art style!

FA artist Corganda is in serious need of money ASAP--I think to make rent, since the first journal asking for money says something about living in a car. She just says if she doesn't make the money, she'll "lose everything."

Here is the most updated journal: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/5292228/


I didn't learn about this until right now so it's a little late, but I'm sure that whether or not this person makes the right amount, she can use all the help she can get. Her papypal information is at the top of her profile in green.

Forgot about this thread; I know someone else that needs some prayer and help, so here's the post that I was shooting around the 'net last night:

Quote:
Over on Tumblr, a sad story has been playing out. The short version is that a 23 year old woman is being abused, and now her friends are calling for others to help get her away from her abusive mother.

JitterbugJive -- the mod of the Discord Whooves ask pony Tumblr (among others), has been covering most of it, and has summarized the situation here.

If you are in the Dallas, Texas area and can offer a room (she's even offering to pay rent, if needed) please see the link for who to contact and so on.

Please pray that she gets safely out of her abusive situation.

A friend of mine has designed and is selling T-shirts to raise money for a service dog. She's offering free sketches to anyone who contributes; there's a week left for the fundraiser.

If anyone's feeling generous, Faethe Daniels needs both prayers and funds to help her and her family as they deal with a serious situation with her mother, Cheryl Daniels.

My honorary brother, Wrathofautumn, recently learned that he is not going to get a tax refund he was kind of counting on in order to pay for some prescriptions and debts. He lives off disability and so money is always tight for him. He's recently opened up commissions, check him out here: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/5663417/ . He does a lot of clean transformation art, if you're into that kinda thing.

So I found this journal through a friend of mine on FA: http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/5801601/

Kijani Lion needs to get some dental work done that isn't covered through his insurance. To raise money, he's selling things. IF you don't want any of the physical items he's selling, he'll give you a professionally printed photo from his gallery for $10. He's got a lot of good photos from the zoo, especially of lions!

examples:

lion - http://www.furaffinity.net/view/5319002/
wolf - http://www.furaffinity.net/view/7653281/
otter - http://www.furaffinity.net/view/10662298/
jaguar - http://www.furaffinity.net/view/8435959/
meerkats - http://www.furaffinity.net/view/4209372/
fennec fox - http://www.furaffinity.net/view/2936174/
ocelot - http://www.furaffinity.net/view/2936266/
bears - http://www.furaffinity.net/view/2936256/
tiger - http://www.furaffinity.net/view/2936200/

dat fennec yawning, tho'.

pop on over and buy a print to help a dude out.

grizzlybear090 on FA is selling her characters and taking donations for money to get to see her boyfriend in the winter. Long distance is rough and that hits close to home for me so I wanted to see if I could get her any help!

I feel a bit dirty for saying so, but if someone wanted to give me money, my current situation would be a lot easier...however, I don't expect any. I am fairly convinced at this point God just wants me to be patient for the time being. My needs are met, so it is only that I have no extra funds for whatever and I am constantly trying to "catch up" getting my bank account in the black.

My friend RaZim could really use some help:
http://www.furaffinity.net/journal/6715842
Quote:
I've been struggling health-wise since December when I destroyed my knee... Its been one complication after another and all resulting in me being unable to work... During my last medical LOA due to these complications, something went wrong with the application, I don't know what, but something went wrong. I came to find out that my boss, the one whom I sent the files to, is no longer with the company and so I'm guessing she just didn't bother or something... Either way, as far as the company was concerned: I was a no call/no show. Thankfully I spoke with the Operations Manager before I left and he knew I went on a medical leave, and while he couldn't stop the company from letting me go, he did at least ensure I was left in the system as rehireable. I've gone through the process of rehire, and am currently waiting for a new position to open on my old project or for a new training class to start with another project. But that's not enough to fix things right now...

What pushed me over the edge was a dental bill... My mom's insurance didn't cover as much as expected and so while I had a payment arrangement already in place, my dentist's office decided to bill me the payment arrangement amount of under $300, as well as the missing amount from the insurance coverage all at once, which came to over $900. This devoured everything in my account and threw me drastically into the negatives with overdraft fees and all... Currently I'm sitting about $600 in the hole and I'll need more to actually pay bills.

There's a crowdfunding campaign for my friend's friend's son who we've been praying for. If you can help out it would be really appreciated.
