soc_puppet: Words "Creative Process" in purple (Creative Process)

[Content Note/Trigger Warning: abduction, terrorism, human trafficking]

This isn't exactly fandom, but I thought that there would be plenty of people here who are/would be interested in doing creative things to help people out.

This is suuuuuper short notice, since the deadline is May 15, but Fey Publishing and Solarwyrm Press are seeking submissions for an anthology to honor the over 200 girls who were kidnapped in Nigeria on April 14. Stories should be between 1,500 and 5,000 words; proceeds will go to the Not For Sale Campaign, "an organization that seeks to uncover and put a stop to human trafficking and slavery of all kinds."

I can't tell if authors get any money from this, but if you've got a story in mind and are charitably inclined, you can learn more details here.

Hi all. I'm trying to raise funds for a friend of mine in a bad situation. Known as [ profile] similiesslip, she is trying to extricate herself from a long-term marriage where her husband is emotionally and physically abusive. She wants to divorce and start a new life, but she has three children, and her husband has controlled the finances and tried to prevent her from holding a job. I am trying to raise funds to help her put a lawyer on retainer for her divorce and to help her to have some funds for leaving. I can vouch that this situation is completely legitimate, and that we are working to find her other resources (women's shelter, etc.) to ensure her safety and the safety of her little ones. As someone who was in a similar marriage for 8 years, I know that it can be very hard to break out of this cycle emotionally - it's even harder when you're tied up financially. Any help you can give would be appreciated - and if you can't give, please consider sharing this with others.

The GoFundMe campaign is here.

((Thank you))

Two surgeries and some broken/decayed teeth have left me with many bills that I don't have money to pay. I have always given my money to help others when I have it, and now I need help myself.

I created a page at GoFundMe to help get money for my hospital and dental bills.

Could you guys help me by sharing my link?

If I can get $100 in online donations, then the site will include my page in their site search.

Here's the link:

If any of you can help with a donation, I would appreciate it.

If you can't donate, I would appreciate it if you could share my link.

Did you know that an animal is abused every ten seconds in the United States alone? That is a truly frightening but very real statistic. Cruelty to animals is not right and it is not fair! We need to find a way to stem or even completely stop this awful epidemic. We have to be the voices for those who cannot speak. The HELP ANIMALS network was created with that purpose in mind.

We are currently launching a campaign to raise funds for The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, which is a non-profit organization that helps abused, neglected and abandoned animals find new, loving homes. If you write fan fiction, make graphics, music videos or have any other special talents to share, please click the link to HELP ANIMALS. Your love for animals, not mention the fandoms you follow, can very well be the basis for true change!

Via this post on [ profile] fandomaid:

On October 30th, 2012, several storm fronts off the east coast of the United States of America banded together to create what has become known as the Frankenstorm; a rare weather event that has culminated in the worst storm to hit the east coast in history.

The hurricane at the heart of it, Sandy, had already wreaked havoc on several lower Caribbean nations, causing widespread death and destruction. And now the destruction continues in parts of the United States, with severe power outages, evacuations, fires, building collapses and flooding still causing major problems. Reports of loss of life and extensive damage to property and infrastructure continue to emerge, culminating in a repair bill that is climbing rapidly towards being the highest for a natural disaster in American history.

Following successful fundraising efforts in the past, [ profile] fandomaid is launching a new campaign to raise funds for any and all areas/countries/regions that have been affected by this series of extreme weather events.

Hey guys! Have you heard of Kiva.Org? Well they're an organization that assists in giving out small loans to third-world country citizens who need a small amount of money to help their businesses/livelihood grow.

While normally this is a fantastic, and easy/inexpensive way to help others, for a little while it is FREE! For all new sign-ups, and accepted invitations to your friends, they are giving you $25 to lend to any borrower you choose!

Please sign up! It takes five minutes to choose your borrower + sign up, and maybe an extra minute to import your email contacts to send out invites! This is a super easy way to do something really important today, right now.

Click here if you want to give me an extra $25 to lend, or click here to sign up all regular-like.

Please signal boost! ♥

Main Information Post.

Donation Incentives List.

Over winter break (that means this coming January 2013), my college sends a team of senior nursing students (that’s me!) on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic to provide medical aid to families in impoverished areas.

To prepare for our trip, we need to bring supplies! LOTS AND LOTS OF SUPPLIES. Last year, we treated 500 people every day, and to each family that visited us, we gave a small “health pack” of supplies—a large ziplock bag with soap, washcloth, toothbrush and toothpaste. On top of that, we need to bring our own medications to treat our patients: run-of-the-mill stuff like aspirin, tylenol, etc.

It’s honestly more than the few of us could gather working alone—so, dear reader, I’m asking for your help! Could you please help by donating?

There are three ways to donate: you can mail me supplies directly, you can mail me gift cards which I will then use to purchase supplies, or you can donate money directly. For more information, PLEASE CLICK HERE.

There are also donation incentives being offered, somewhat similar to a fandom auction. To see a list of incentives, PLEASE CLICK HERE!

A charity auction of fandom or original works in aid of Childreach International. The creator (myself, [personal profile] knightess) will be skydiving at the end of this month and trekking the Great Wall of China at the end of summer in aid of the charity. To do so I need to fundraise £2,500 ($4,000) in total.

Childreach is a grassroots charity that protects childrens' rights in developing countries, and promotes their access to health care and education by working in partnership with local communities. This charity is an incredibly worthy cause, so please help in any way you can, whether taking part or spreading the word on your journal/social networking sites/amongst your friends. Thank you!

This is a charity auction in the style of many others that have been run, in which fan creations are auctioned off in exchange for donations.

Over 900 people in Mindanao, Philippines, have died in the floods that Typhoon Sendong (local name)/Washi (international name) just days before Christmas. Hundreds more are missing.

Please help us in putting together donations for these people who desperately need your help.

You can find promotional banners and icons at the community.

My Fundable Account

I'm trying to get some money donated to help me move out, get my nail technician lisence. I finished school, but my supplies have been ruined and between the costs of re-buying them, the fees to take the test, security deposit, utilities, ect. I don't have enough money to move out right now. I really would like to take my daughter to a better area, and to get out of here and actually get started with my life.

The minimum fundable pledge is ten dollars, and I'd need 450 people to pledge that much. Less people, if more people pledge more. The way fundable works is you enter your credit card information, and if I don't meet my goal, they don't take your money.

I'd sincerely appreciate any donations. Thank you for reading this.

Edit: I forgot to say, if you'd like to "pimp" the link in your journal to help me get to 450 donations, I'd appreciate the plug!
