lisawithabee:

Hey guys. Bïsa here.

I’m just gonna come out and say it, I need help.

My fiance, baby, and I just moved to the suburbs of Chicago to try and escape the violence that is currently plaguing my city. We can’t make ends meet at all (details on the page), and we have no other options.

I am getting more depressed each day and I can see no way out of this hole. We can’t pay our bills, we are in an extremely stressful living situation, and we don’t even have enough money to wash our clothes. I am literally crying myself to sleep each night.

You guys, I need your help. My birthday is today (I’m 24 now), and I found my fiance crying in the bathroom the other day because he can’t afford to do anything for it. Personally, I just want to be able to pay our bills and have an entire day where he doesn’t have to work so he can spend time with the baby and me.

Tumblr, can you help make my birthday wish come true?

Please donate what you can or signal boost if you can’t.

Thank you all so much in advance.

<3 Lisawithabee

It depends. Sometimes people take advantage of something that could otherwise be used for good.

I wouldn't donate to her.  

I'd sell drugs or hop on the pole if it gets that bad.

Lol can't think of anything to nice say. Yes, it's gone too far. There's an obscene amount of money wasted on people who haven't been vetted at all. Sometimes I wonder if people think it's funny to donate, like to the mugshot guy. Idk what's funny about it though, they must want to be a part of something.

On a positive note. My cousins business Kyra's Shea Medleys is coming up on their one year anniversary. Business has grown this past year and she started a kick starter campaign to try and take her business further. It would be awesome if you guys checked it out.

To address the point of the thread. This is flat out begging. When they moved there, they should had a plan. Savings, budget, anything to keep them out of the whole they are in. Trust me I know life happens, but going to strangers, c'mon.

Let's just ignore the fact that they brought a child into the world without being able to take care of her....

There isn't a justifible reason for her to be a stay at home mom with no source of income. There are free services in her area for infant child care, and formula, and just as quickly as she posted this she could have started a business online for herself and generated income that way. She could have also gotten a grant to go to school for free since she has a child. 

You are asking for money for a phone bill and pet food. 'Nough said. 

Your mother would have to formally evict you and you would have at least 30 days. You want to move because you "dont like" her popping up. Tough titty. 

This bytch has lost her mind.
