Please donate to my friend Jayvin’s fundraiser to replace his stolen computer, and please spread the word about this campaign. Even $5-$10 donations help. EVERY PENNY COUNTS!
Jayvin is one of my nearest, dearest, and best beloved friends. We met as teenagers, and have known each other half our lives (!). I love him tremendously, and he is responsible for much of who I am today.
I could tell you a lot of awesome stories about Jayvin. I could wax rhapsodic about his tireless activism, his razor-sharp intellect, his wry wit, his great big tender heart, and his delicious mischievous smile. But mostly, I just wanna say this: It is the good and right thing to give back to people who devote their lives to building community and giving generously, as Jayvin has.
I love you, Fluffy. Let’s make this happen! <3
If you haven’t noticed, my posting volume has been quite of low as of late and here’s why: a week ago, my backpack was stolen out of my friend’s car; my backpack contained my laptop, my TI-89 calculator, and various other effects including my notes for my classes, and my prescriptions for aderall and dexodrine. (The notes included the calculus test I just completed on Monday. Needless to say I was pretty upset and felt pretty stupid.)
I’m currently in the process of replacing my laptop and doing so with my “GoFundMe” website. While I don’t expect everyone to cover the entire cost of my laptop, the way GoFundMe works, whatever people donate is instantly deposited into a midway account, (with the fee taken out of each donation, instead of one lump sum when I “reach my goal”,) and I can access the funds with or without reaching my goals.
I am going to give it a week or two before I take whatever’s in the account and use it toward funding my replacement laptop.
I’m currently raising $1,350.00 to replace my laptop, (with a refurbished Mac like I used to have, and get a copy of the Microsoft Suite for Mac). Even if you can’t donate, please reblog and share with people if you think it’s appropriate.
