Greetings everyone! As this journal title says, I'm trying to raise money in order help rebuild my home which has taken significant damage over the years. So what exactly is wrong with my home? Well the inside is fine, but the outside is on its final legs. The outside wood that covers the house is all that protects the inside from the elements, and it's damaged and rotting away. My mom and I already find it difficult keeping the bugs out, and one more powerful storm could blow/tear off a large hole in our house.
Of course, we've been meaning to replace this damaged and rotten wood so our home can better survive the future... but that's difficult given our financial situation. My mom works full-time and usually works overtime as well, yet she roughly makes $18,000 a year. That's not enough to pay a carpenter or more to come and fix our house and pay for supplies which sums up to several thousand dollars (if I had to estimate, maybe $8,000 for the whole house). She also doesn't have enough saved to have this done either. The money she earns mostly goes to gas, food, water, and bills. I'm a full-time student and don't have the time or money to help. Also, we have no insurance on our home. So if a fire starts or if there's a flood, we can't afford to rebuild. This is difficult to say since the wood on our house is rotten. An electrical fire could break out and spread all over. We also live in south Louisiana so one strong storm (like a hurricane) can come by and flood the place.
This is what I'm selling to help raise money!:
I'm selling my "Kawaii on the Streets, Senpaii in the Sheets" shirt design that I've had on sale in my Redbubble and Teepublic shop ^^ I've had another idea before, but I figured more people would like this idea XD I hope you do too! There are three different types of shirts: Premium Tee ($20), Hanes Tagless Tee ($18), and Women's Flowy Tank-top ($24). Each comes in a selection of 5 colors ^^
GOAL: 50 SHIRTS - This'll cover the materials we need
Without further explanation, thank you so much for your interest. And if you would like to support me, I'd appreciate it even more! I'm sure my mom would as well
Important: 10 shirts MUST be sold in order for them to be shipped off! If less than 10 are sold, the entire booster will be cancelled, all money will be refunded, and nothing would have been done.
Ends: September 1, 2015.
Shirts will ship out once campaign ends.
Interested in helping me other ways?
