Need financial help, boosts please
Hello, got only a partial salary this month (will be back to normal next pay)
In the meantime I’m a bit short to pay my rent this month, and getting food and stuff will definitely be difficult if I don’t get any help right now.
If you want and you can, please send a few euros my way so I don’t have as much of a rough time getting by
pandemic stuff, request for facemask info,
Also if anyone has any resources on making face masks from scratch (that are beginner friendly bc i can't sew that well) I would love them
(or if anyone knows anyone that might be selling any)
My mom works in assisted living and needs one, and I'm thinking about making one for her and me (for when i go shopping) or just buying one if i can
I'll bookmark anything y'all suggest, thanks <3

I suspect it's not news to anyone here that the chorus of
"Everyone who isn't me is stupid and greedy!! That's why things are bad!!! Stop hoarding!!!!!!"
That's going around is primarily working as a means of mass self-soothing, rather than an attempt at a workable explanation of the situation we are in.
Nontheless, this still is a good/short article on supply chain dynamics that's worth a read
financial help request
I feel like I've imposed on the fediverse's generosity too much already, but the truth is that I'm about to run out of money, even with Patreon coming in at the beginning of next week.
So I have to ask for your help. Any amount helps - and I appreciate boosts and other methods of spreading the word too.

"These seventeen poems form a journal that stretches from January to late March 2020, from a precarious half life sustained by food stamps, mounting debt, and visions of insurrection to the moment where a global pandemic suddenly places a great many others in a similar state, all of struggling, all of us demanding a new way of life: an end to capitalism and the United States itself.

i had to replace the batteries in my carbon monoxide alarm earlier today because it beeped 3 times. but now i've brought the other carbon monoxide alarm into the room too in case the three beeps were an actual alarm rather than a low battery alarm. really i should have three of them in a majority-voting system
I was trying to avoid making a post like this, but my roommate who covered our first payment to the landlords is asking for money, there doesn't look like there's gonna be any relief coming for those of us who are still employed but had all our hours cut, and there doesn't look like there's gonna be any rent relief or stoppage. I have one paycheck coming Friday, and then nothing. If there's anything anyone can do to help (sharing, donating, letting me know about resources I haven't heard about), I would really appreciate it.
