First off, as with the pootie diaries, we have a few ground rules:

1. Be nice to each other
2. No trolling the diary
3. If you hate pootie diaries or fundraising diaries, leave now.
4. Whatever happens in the outer blog STAYS in the outer blog. DO NOT SHIT-STIR IN HERE! Shit stirring will be dealt with the same way we deal with trolls.
As seen in these two diaries, Fineena is a fellow Kossack who has had difficulties when it comes to finding a job and is having some real difficulties right now.

I am going to give her the floor, so to speak, and let her share her story in her own words; however we are looking for a total of $2000:

I've made a little money past 6 months but there's always something that doesn't get paid & eventually it all catches up with you.  I have looked for work, had several interviews but nothing yet.  I do have a good possibility with a new business but that won't start until 2013.  I've done some custom sewing & crochet work to survive the past few months but none available right now.
Current situation is that November rent not paid ($800) & December due on Saturday.  I don't have a lease any longer so evicting me will be easy as my Landlord has said.  I've pushed him & drug out Nov rent as long as I can & am amazed he's let it go on as long as he has.

My car broke down a week ago so part of the money I put aside went for new battery.  Also had to pay 2 mos of electric to avoid disconnection this week so that took the rent of little bit I was putting aside for rent.

I still have other utilities to pay that are past due including another electric bill.  I am out of my blood pressure prescriptions & have no more refills so I need to get to a doctor or clinic here to get new scripts.  Both of my dogs (Sam & Julia) need trips to the vet & all of their shots.  Car insurance... and the list  goes on.  Right now, my biggest fear is the rent & keeping a roof over my head.....

H/T to ceriboo for this bit of info:

I know the more favorites you get there the more it raises your profile. Also being added to a Treasury List. So anyone who can't buy or donate, go onto Etsy and favorite Fineena's items or put them in a Treasury. Share on your Facebook or G+ pages. Anything that bumps her to the front page and gets more eyes on her work will help!
Also, we raised $1684 and 20 scarves were sold last night, so we are working on getting at least another $800.

2:24 PM PT: Apparently, I accidentally deleted the paypal address during my last edit. That is: palskaren@aol.com

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
