Help us move! <3
We’re a couple of artisans and their support cat, living as household staff in NYC and working for room and board; but our employers cannot afford to keep us on or pay their rent any longer, and so we’re having to move on. Since we worked for room and board, we couldn’t build up a savings, and have no severance pay. We are going to be looking for work as soon as we hit Minnesota, but first we have to get there, and feed ourselves when we do.
Some kindly folk in the Twin Cities of MN have offered us a home, and a dear friend is flying up to be our driver, and a few kind folks here on tumblr have helped out; but getting from here to there, and being able to eat when we do get there, costs more than we have raised.
We need just a little more to help cover the rest of the cost of renting a small van (not a moving van but a regular van), and feeding ourselves and our kitty cat while we’re looking for work. Even $6 buys a week’s worth of food for our kitty, so anything you can give would help.
Our reward prizes will be unique to the fundraiser, but you can find examples of J’s work here at our Etsy shop. (J is the rainbow-haired one). You can get to our Gofundme page by clicking the photo, or this link here.
