  •  If we need to do a separate fund-raising (5+ / 0-)

    diary for breakingranks, we can do that, and will do that. All breakingranks has to do is ask.

    But you, my dear, need to hang onto every cent you raise. You have health issues on top of homelessness, and what we raise isn't a cushion, it's a finger in the dyke compared to the income you need to sustain yourself until you land on your feet.

    I don't know how many people Community Fundraisers has helped, but there are many. And we, as a community, will continue to help members in need. Right now we are focusing on you.

    breakingranks, let me or the Community Fundraising members know if you need help. We care and we will do what we can to assist you.

    Meanwhile, marabout40, you need your funds to help you explore options for yourself, as well as keeping you fed and a roof over your head and that of Tucker. I know your need is great, and it is too early in your recovery cycle to take care of anyone except yourself and your dog.

    IMHO, of course. That's all that is.

      Community Fundraising is great, and I'm glad it has helped some people.

      Ultimately, though, people in my situation need policy change. And they need a source of income (hopefully a job) that will keep them housed long term.

        We need to get away from this mindset

        small money

        to the mindset that shares thoughts like this.

          •  You are absolutely right that we are at the triage (3+ / 0-)

            state for the victims of this economy.

            With this election cycle, we have the opportunity to work for candidates who believe in rendering the needed triage, rather than self-aggrandizement.

            Will let you know if breaking will want or permit a diary. I won't poke, but, er, hint, hint, hint, er, somebody might see if and when that might be appropriate.

            I'm a rather cowardly lion, despite my occasional roars.
