I've never done this before, unless offering something in return, such as selling zines, etc. But I don't have much in the way of fandom memorabilia any longer, so I'm dispensing with pride and coming right out and asking for monetary help from any friends who know me via fandom and/or stories.

The reason is rather long and complicated so I'm asking for for $5-$10 from anyone willing to help, admittedly on nothing more than the strength of
knowing me.

Needless to say, I'm falling back on good old PayPal (please use whatever category *won't* cost you any fees) at either alysideburns@gmail.com or alyjude@cox.net.

Thank you for reading!

I've just sent $20 Hun. Paypal would NOT accept your gmail email. It kept demanding I use a proper phone number. WHA?? I used cox.net and it accepted it.

I don't know what you need it for, but knowing you, it must be VERY important.

*hugs*

Sorry!

I guess LJ notifications isn't working, as I had no idea you'd replied!

Thank you, girlfriend!

PS: You should post something on the fan groups (like on facebook). I think they'd be eager to assist.

FB

I did. If I could, I'd have done a vid for Vine!

It did accept it when I used your gmail address. I sent you some.

Sent you some too. Aly, I sincerely hope that you'll be able to raise enough for whatever problem is haunting you. *hugs*

Thank You, Pat!

Sorry for late reply, but I guess LJ notifications isn't working, as I had no idea you'd replied! And how are you? It's been so long sine we've talked!

Sending thoughts and prayers as usual! Don't feel bad for asking. It lifts my heart to be able to help!

I hope whatever's wrong it's nothing too awful - more in the nature of needing a quick fix, rather than desperate measures... whatever the problem, sending you love and hugs, and crossing my fingers whatever it is gets sorted soon. ♥

Aly asked me to tell you she would get back to everyone when she feels better. She's just not feeling well right now and could use some good wishes and prayers if you have them lying around.

Thanks Pat - is there anything more we can do, do you know? I've been worrying and hoping it's nothing too dire - so sending her love and good thoughts, and thanks to you too. Big hugs and positive thoughts all round. ♥

Aly, if you're feeling up to it, I have some work. I have a book coming out at the end of the month, and I have a $150 advertising budget which I tend to throw at random advertising that may or may not work. I would be very comfortable handing you the money if you want to work informal channels, Facebook/LJ, whatever. Let me know if you're able to take the work.

I didn't see this until just now (because my life has been a muddle this month and I'm still getting back in the LJ habit) -- but are you okay? Do you need anything? What can I do?

(If nothing else, I have a portfolio of some fannish art prints that you could keep and enjoy or sell as you see fit. Please let me send those to you so you'll have them like a penny in your pocket against a future emergency. I haven't looked at them in years but I remember that there's some super yummy Jim/Blair in there. And an original or maybe two, if I remember right.)
