UPDATE: I’ve set up some clarified options for commissions in this post over here! Thanks for your support :)
guys, i really hate having to ask for help but i need you desperately!
i fell down some stairs and fractured my fibula (ankle/leg) on 6/14. i had to go to the on-campus doctor despite having no insurance, and had to get three visits (will probably need more later), two sets of xrays, medication, a walking cast and crutches, all out of pocket.
the total for all this madness so far is $600… and since i’m unable to get to work right now i don’t have it, and i don’t have any way of making any income.
the money is due in full on august 15, and if i can’t pay it i will have a hold put on my student account that will not allow me to attend my classes, and worse- if this happens my financial aid will be revoked and i will have to leave college, in my senior fricking year.
i’ve set up a fundraiser at http://youcaring.com/kenbrokeleg, and as it explains there i am looking to do commissions if you’re willing to help me out!
to be straight with you guys i have never really done very many commissions- i honestly just don’t have a huge online presence and don’t get many bites. i know it sounds like a pain in the butt, but i’d like to talk to you if you’re interested and work out a rate based on what you want. loosely, i was thinking along these lines:
**see this post for updated details and examples!**
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE contact me if you have questions or want to help me out! ANYTHING HELPS. REALLY. AND I LOVE YOU IN ADVANCE.
NOT HAVING INSURANCE RUINS YOUR LIFE, WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.
update: IM CALLING AN INTERNET TIME OUT HERE DUDES
contrary to at least one grumpy person’s opinion, I’m not trying to drum up pity or free help! I included my X-ray on my post to look legit, plus it kinda just looks cool. Also doodled myself cus hey, the post is about me. And lets be real- I’m in a crapton of pain right now that’s just trufax. I promise I don’t look like skrillex, to the one person who pointed that out.
Just to be perfectly crystal super ultra clear here I’m offering to work for you. That’s all! Yes there’s a pretty urgent reason why I need to make some cash right now, but I’m not looking for handouts and I want to be clear about that. The fundraiser page is just another channel for that, and a way for people who may be understandably wary of handing a stranger payment over tumblr (you generally should be) to do it through a more structured system if they choose. You guys don’t know me very well, but please take my word for it that I want to earn each and every penny that may come to me, and that I am the type to refuse help for the sake of my own dignity, even when I should really just shut up and let someone help me. That being said…
thank you for the responses and support so far- it really means a lot!
