Help Me Stay in University!
I always feel guilty coming to tumblr for help, but with the advice of a few close friends, I decided to make this post.

I’m a University student, recently accepted into a program that will benefit me greatly in the future for my career goals - I aim to be an early childhood educator for special needs students after growing up with an autistic younger brother.
However, my father cut me off financially because he is homophobic. He is unwilling to pay off the rest of my tuition for the last semester because I am attracted to the same sex. Even with financial aid from the state, unfortunately, I still owe my school about $2000.
I would need to pay the rest of this money before the end of August, otherwise my admission into the University will be terminated.
While I am able to pay $200 with my savings, the remaining amount still needs to be compensated. I work 8 hours a week on minimum wage and my mother cannot support me due to her own financial obligations to my other siblings who aren’t adults.
Please, please, please - if you could donate to my cause, that would mean the world to me. I’d be forever grateful for any amount donated, whatever the amount. If you cannot donate, please signal boost this. I find it difficult asking strangers for help, again, but at the moment I am desperate to continue working towards my dream and my goals.
I also offer artistic compensation for certain donated amounts. My gofundme is here -  more information about my situation has been provided there in length. Along with this I am also offering commissions, so if you are interested, please contact me via the tumblr messaging system!
If you’d rather donate to me via paypal or some other convenience, that’s fine as well. My contact and paypal email is yakfrosty@gmail.com.


Wow guys, I’m in awe. collectively just in the first day I’ve raised $358 for my cause, and I’m in tears right now because i’m really, incredibly thankful to those few that contributed to this fund.
I really really appreciate everyone who has signal boosted so far and I am especially grateful to those that donated money - you all know who you are, and I’m indebted to you.
However, I still have a long way to go, and would appreciate any further signal boosting of my issue at hand. Thank you so much!

McDonald’s worker arrested after telling company president she can’t afford shoes.

"A woman who has been employed by the McDonald’s Corporation for over 10 years says she was arrested last week after she confronted the company president at a meeting and told him she couldn’t afford to buy shoes or food for her children.

Nancy Salgado, 26, told The Real News that she felt like she had to speak out during McDonald’s USA President Jeff Stratton’s speech at the Union League Club of Chicago on Friday for the sake of her children.

“It’s really hard for me to feed my two kids and struggle day to day,” she shouted as Stratton was speaking. “Do you think this is fair, that I have to be making $8.25 when I’ve worked for McDonald’s for ten years?”

“I’ve been there for forty years,” Stratton replied from the podium.

“The thing is that I need a raise. But you’re not helping your employees. How is this possible?” Salgado asked.

At that point, someone approached Salgado and informed her that she was going to be arrested.

She later recalled the encounter to The Real News’ Jessica Desvarieux.

“The strength was very powerful, like, just remembering the face of my kids, like I say, you know, just simple things like I can’t provide a pair of shoes like everybody else does, sometimes every month, or anything like that,” she said. “And he needs to know we are what all the employees at McDonald’s are going through. We’re struggling day to day to provide our needs in our houses, things for our kids. And it’s just–it gets harder and harder with just the poverty wage they have us living in.”

“They just told me, you know, well, you’re being under arrest because you just interrupted, you trespassed the property. You’re just going to go to jail,” Salgado added. “And what I remember just telling them, ‘well, like, so, because I have to speak out my mind and I had to tell the president the poverty wage I’m living in, that’s just against the law?’ You know, just be able to speak up your mind and say, you know what, I can’t survive with $8.25? It’s just — it’s ridiculous that I’m going to get arrested. You know.”

Salgado, who is still working at McDonald’s, said she had her hours cut following the arrest and feared further retaliation.

“The CEOs make millions and billions a year and why can’t they provide enough for their employees?” she wondered.”

I think that this is beyond awful for many reasons. People can’t afford to live off of the wages that they are given currently, and can’t even speak out against it. I know tumblr is great for spreading important news like this, so please help me get the word out to support this woman.

okay seriously if you’re in a relationship or even a friendship and you find yourself spending more time crying out of sadness or arguing with them, leave them. i don’t care if they’re a modern day aphrodite/adonis or a gift bestowed upon you by the gods. toxic people are dangerous and i highly advise cutting them out of your life and finding someone who makes you laugh until you snort your drink out your nose instead.
