Request sent last night. It's been a tough year.

I'm coming up on one year of being homeless and laboriously carving a path to not being homeless, but a downed utility pole has cut electricity off from the squat I'm inhabiting. Utility corporation estimates repair by October- meaning I will have to delay my study plans to reacquire tech certs, focusing instead on day-to-day survival against the heat and a lack of a fridge

I'm at wits end and I'm tired- I pull down about $500/mo from odd jobs, it goes real fast when all your food spoils and you gotta drive a 20mpg jalopy to the library/coffee shop to study every day- on top of my medical costs, which are not insignificant.

I'm not certain that goonfund is robust enough to rly help. The amt I need to avoid having to camp in my town's sanctuary district this month is higher than I'm comfortable requesting, though I'm putting in a request for a lesser amount, for gasoline and access to air conditioned/electrified spaces during the day. Maybe a nice lil beer or two

Internally, I feel capable of climbing out of this, for the first time in my adult life! Medical care has been equipping me to actually do the things I gotta do, love it.
Externally, everything's going to poo poo! Local welfare NGOs are swamped, 1bdr rent has climbed from 500/mo average to 850/mo average in less than a decade, and the electric company rushes to restore service to half-mil mcmansions while the rest of us just, wait around and sweat it out

idk what to do and 21c life has taught me that when idk what to do, I post about it

There's a qcs thread about it. Basically it's a zero accountability one man show that people still find useful and helpful, so we just wanted to make it clear that it's not in any way forums endorsed or guaranteed.

I don't care about some QCS bullshit. Plinkey has helped me a few times and I'm proud to support the Patreon monthly

theflyingexecutive
Apr 22, 2007

I'm an ardent Plinkey supporter and he deals with a huge amount of weighing human suffering. that qcs thread is filled with a ton of antisocial weirdos with axes to grind against cspam at large but also has a lot of cogent points about how important decentralization and transparency is for mutual aid.

it would be really good to move the fund off of a platform where a for profit corp is taking a full fifth of donations and plinkey is responsible for thousands of dollars in unnecessary taxes. there is also a substantial population of goons who would be open to giving (or giving more) under a more transparent framework. I really think this fund would be extremely beneficial to the forums at large but it's a hard sell organized as such and even at its current level, there are posts in here from people whose requests were overlooked because it's a one man operation.

the uk fund proves it's possible to have a more mature organization without too much administrative burden. there were points made in qcs that it's much different to do so in the us, but cspam has a fairly deep bench of npo and accounting experts who can and have offered their support.

I'm still fully in support of plinkey's fund; I don't think he's embezzling thousands for an uncontrolled gambling and ppv addiction like some in qcs are alleging, but it's hard to not blame people who watched the tremendous shitstorms of doobie's, koalas march, or lowtax's scams and choose to not donate

Hey Plinkey, don't let the shitheads get you down, you've helped me with serious medical issues before and for that I am extremely grateful. They've cropped up again, anything helps. Thank you.

that's what I posted. there already is one for the uk thread run by rotating five person council plus an accountant that's legally registered in the country and puts out financial reports at much less cash flow than this fund because they divide the labor and accountability
