I don't write journals often, but Lurockia told me a fellow artist is in serious trouble. I don't know her, but I understand her struggle and I try to help her at least by spreading the word. So please at least read this.
From Lurockia's journal:
"Hey there folks, anyone who has been following me for awhile would know that ordinarily when I make a journal it's essentially to inform my watchers of what I've been up to and things that I have planned for the future. More often than not, usually in the most humorous way possible but unfortunately this is not one of those times.
So with that rather grim conversation starter, I would like to bring the attention over to one of my recent friends here on DeviantART NoireBlanc. She's a wonderful artist with an amazing personality and a sharp wit to boot and she's desperately in need of any assistance that anyone can possibly offer.
Here are the journals explaining the situation:
no personal art for a whileUpdate: okay so talked financials over with my mom. We're about $8,000 in the red that we owe. The problem is that we're apparently been floating at this number for a while. Mom missed a few payments now and again and so we keep hovering at this number but unable to get it down. It's not that we haven't been paying, my family just cant afford to shell out extra cash to cover for the late fees.
I'm going to be posting designs to sell for auction on here and fa
Ideas / things that would be cool to see as feed back from you guys would be great!
Thanks for al the support in notes, comments, skype- omigod its just been really nerve wracking.
So today I went home to my parents and everything was fine until I saw this on the table.
The bank is foreclosing my parents home. My home. And my mother requested a loan from the bank just until she fan catch up on her bills and they sent back that they needed all the paperwork again. It took her a month to get everything together last time.
A bit of a long shotEDIT: holy shit the amount of support everyone is giving me makes me want to cry. I CANT THO BECAUSE IM AT WORK AND MY MAKEUP NEEDS TO STAY FIERCE SO THESE PERVERTS CAN GIVE ME MONEY but no seriously
My mom doesn't know I'm doing this so what I want to do is raise all the money we need and then dump it into her bank account and then videotape my parents when I tell them to check their account
I started a gofundme account in case anyone could donate a dollar. You can also donate with paypal or card.
PLEASE let me know if you donate. It was also the cheapest website that I could find because they take 4% of the amount donated which is small but still.
I Just don't want my family to lose their home
Should you choose to ignore this journal, that's fine. It isn't always fair to ask for generosity from online strangers in order to help someone you've never even met before. Trust me, I understand. I'm usually one of the first people to think "Gosh.. I really wish I could help, but I can't." and then proceed with moving on with my life. That's completely fine and I won't judge you for it. All that I ask is that you pass this message along anywhere that you can. Thank you.
Now onto business.
Essentially what is happening is that her home is going into foreclosure and neither her nor her family have the necessary means to pay off the debt. The goal is...
A large sum that most people don't even have in their bank account. If we could get even a fraction of the members on DeviantART and Tumblr to donate at least $1 each she would likely be in the clear within a few days. Sadly that isn't how things work. This isn't a Lifetime movie where everything has the guarantee of achieving a happy ending, but that doesn't mean that I can't try to make that happen in my own way.
I implore you to not allow for this amazing artist and her family go homeless. You never know if one day you might be in the same situation as she.
You may donate to help her cause in the link attached over here: gogetfunding.com/project/forec…
Once more, please pass this journal along so that others may possibly have a chance of seeing it. Thank you greatly for your time."
So please, at least spread the word wherever you can. Thank you
