(TW: Domestic Violence)
I’ve never made a post like this before. But I’ve seen the tumblr community do amazing things, and I’m hoping you can help.
My friend, Georgina, had a 30-year-old sister named Penelope who was killed on May 9th as a result of domestic violence. Penelope had three beautiful girls, all under the age of 8, who are now left without a mother and with a father on the run.
The plan is for the girls to be placed in the custody of their grandparents, but the family is in desperate need of funds to make this happen. Friends are coordinating a fundraiser to cover the funeral expenses and moving/ongoing transportation costs. The goal is $20,000, and if anything is raised beyond that, it will go toward the substantial expense of rearing three young girls.
Any amount you are able to contribute would be a big help to these little girls and this woman’s stunned, grieving family.
If you aren’t able to donate, please consider a signal boost. Thank you.
You see this? This painting has caused my poor, dear friend, Sara Dunn, a lot of pain.
It’s a fun image that has gotten a lot of attention, but this attention has been misplaced through outrageously unsourced art.
Now, even the tumblrRadar has chosen to ignore that Sara actually has a tumblr: bluebirdovermyeyes and reposted the image.
It references her deviantart url: decomposerdoll, but makes no effort to link to the image even on there.
If you like her painting, I strongly recommend reblogging it from Sara, the artist, and perhaps looking at some of her other work.
PLEASE READ I’M BEGGING YOU GUYS TO HELP ME.
STOP SCROLLING :’(
This is my best friend, Billy. I’ve known him basically since I was born. Our parents were friends, and it was always the joke between our families that we were going to get married, since my parents happened to have a girl and his a guy, at the same time. He means a lot to me, even though he lives thousands of miles away from me right now. The important thing though, is that he’s gone missing. He is a danger to himself, suffering from depression and extensive drug use in the past year. He was going through rehabilitation, but now he’s missing. He’s disappeared. The last he was seen was in Juno Beach, Florida. This is off of northern Palm Beach County. He’s been missing since Sunday afternoon, over forty hours. The U.S. Coast Guard searched for him throughout Monday night, and they’re unsure that the search will continue any longer. He was last seen wearing a pair of green shorts. It’s uncertain whether he has gone missing deliberately, or the coast was too rough. This is one hundred percent serious and I’m terrified. If anybody in or near Palm Beach County has seen or heard from him, please please please contact his mother at (321) 750-3469. This is so serious, and only serious calls are wanted. Please help find my best friend. I’m lost without him.
attention everyone in the long island area / bronx area if you could please just take the time out to boost this my family and I would appreciate it so much.
I am in central NJ area, away from home for school. I just found out my father has not returned from work. My family is searching for my Dad who is missing.
He is 6’0” 165lbs his name is Donald Dixon. He was last seen in Battery Park and last known location was going over the Throgs Neck Bridge (this is around the bronx area, so I was told) at 01:30 am this morning. He was driving a white box truck with Konica Minolta graphics all around. He might be very confused and not know where his home is. If you see him or a vehicle fitting this description please call or text 201-566-0017 or your local police dept.
Otherwise please include him in your prayers for a speedy and safe return. Please please please signal boost, my heart is breaking for my father and my family just want him back safely. Thank you so much.

This beautiful girl on the left in this picture is my baby sister. She is 14yrs old. Her name is Jamie Marie Meyers, AND SHE IS MISSING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She has been missing since Sunday, 04/21/2013. She is thought to be with her “boyfriend” whom is 18yrs old. His name is Matthew. We believe he’s convinced her to run away with him. We are terrified for her safety and it is unlike her to just leave without even a text. This girl is my life. She means more to me than anything else on this planet and not knowing if she’s okay is literally tearing me apart from the inside out. I want to die. PLEASE, PLEASE HELP ME! I JUST WANT TO KNOW THAT MY BABY SISTER IS OKAY!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is thought to be somewhere in New York State but was last seen at her home in Spring Hill, Florida. ANY AND ALL INFORMATION REGARDING HER WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED AND I WOULD OWE YOU MY LIFE!!!!!!!!
PLEASE TUMBLR, I’M BEGGING YOU, REBLOG THIS AND HELP ME FIND MY BABY SISTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN ONE MONTH AGO! PLEASE HELP ME, I WILL DO ANYTHING, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay Tumblr, I’ve never been one to ask for help, but this is my cat, my baby, Zidane. Currently he’s being hospitalized for bladder stone/bladder crystallization, by some of my close friends who are taking care of him. As much as I wish I could be there with him, I can’t. Because of life events that happened within the span of the first week in February, (Me getting kicked out of my father’s home, my mother being arrested, etc) I’m stuck in Florida living with my girlfriend Ai and her mother until me and Ai can get back home to San Antonio, Texas (We are hoping to go back in June). Zidane was supposed to come with me to Florida, but the night we had to leave he became extremely ill, again because of the crystallization that started forming in his bladder, and I had to leave him behind with friends Maddy , Nick, and Jason, otherwise Zidane would have never made it through the night, let alone the road trip. Jason was generous to cover the first vet bill, $400 for which I still owe him and am forever grateful. However he, nor can I, or any of us, even think to cover these next round of vet bills. This is why I’m coming to you, Tumblr, for help.
We need to raise $1,800. This will cover his hospitalization, urine/blood tests, and a procedure that will unblock his urethral canal/get rid of crystals building in his bladder. With the tests being done, the vets are hoping to figure out why it keeps happening, and hope to keep this crystallization from happening again for a very long time with the procedure.
This is one of my children; I don’t want to lose him before I even get to see him again. Just letting him go the night I left my home city was painful enough. He’s a really loving cat with a personality like that I’ve never seen before. He will talk to you if you talk to him, if you’re crying he will become very concerned and meow at you until you let him into your lap so he can pitter-patter you and purr until you’re smiling again. He likes to burry himself into piles of bras because he’s a little pervert, and loves to sleep in the bed with you at night. He never bites or growls…Zidane is just a sweetheart and I love him. I’ve had him through some of the toughest years of my life, when I had to deal with trouble at home, Zidane was there to comfort me. I want to do everything I can to help him.
I don’t want everything my friends have done for him to have gone to waste either. Please Tumblr, anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated from all of us, and if you can’t donate, a reblog is equally appreciated to spread the word.
My friend Maddie has helped me set up a donation page here
Please please please, anything helps.
Hey guys, I’m Maddy and Zidane is currently under my care. We need to raise money to help pay for his vet bill! Any little bit helps, if you cannot donate, please signal boost! I’ll try to visit him and take some pictures to keep you guys updated on our group sideblog.
I have Pancreatitis, I was hospitalized and can’t afford to get medical attention, now I’m starting to show early signs of liver failure.
this is a really hard post to write.
so my friend ana is really sick and there are signs that it could get worse. she needs to raise money for her medical bills so she can get more help. the prizes offered are all really great. her and her brother and matt all make really awesome art, and the zine package will have my second zine in it also. probably a bunch of better zines too. anyway.
ana and i met five years ago doing tables at fucking warped tour (beginning a solid trend of me meeting cool friends in terrible ways) and she convinced me she had a ridiculous phone number that contained both 420 and 666. we danced to tacky-ass warped tour bands and she didn’t believe me that i was half-Black so i called my dad and had him verify. it was silly and weird and one of those days that could have been so forgettable under most circumstances.
we became penpals/emailpals for a super long time and the same atmosphere existed there as it did at warped tour. we’d talk about lord of the rings and racism and all the while it took months for her to tell me how to spell her first name. our emails would be titled things like “my record player needs a break from me” and “red tea makes babies puke”. it was an odd friendship but a good one.
our paths didn’t cross again until september 2011. i remember being so nervous because it seemed so improbable that we’d be able to cover all the ground in real life that we had in email but we did and it was so fucking awesome. she also (i don’t know if she knows this) really helped me in dealing with mitch’s death. she offered me a perspective on how to approach death/life that i hadn’t been able to consider at that point at all because i was caught up in my grief.
our communication had been sparse for a while but it never changed how i felt. she said it best in an email in november: “this may seem silly, but you are the kind of friend who pops up into my head every once in a while and every time that happens I say to myself that I should write to you but reality catches up to me and I get caught up with being busy and I don’t. So here it is, so saying fuck it to being busy and caring more about friendships… [ed: some other shit about life etc] Anyway, I hope you are ok, actually more than ok I hope life is amazing for you. I look forward to hearing from you, I’ve always have and I’ll always will”.
ana is an awesome person, a great friend, and i don’t like the thought of her dying because our country has a fucked-up medical system. i don’t like the thought of her dying period . anything you could donate to help her out would be appreciated, and if you can’t donate maybe just reblog. thanks a bunch.

I am so angry right now that I started crying. I honestly can’t believe what I was reading..
Not only are they completely racist to the point that it is disgusting, but they are also homophobic and apparently feel no remorse.
What’s worse is that they have over 1,000 followers
Please go on their Instagram and report them and get this shit removed!
Woman Missing! Police and Business refuse to help but YOU can!
(Info from statement of Leslie Miller)
Victoria Darling, went missing Thursday March 14, 2013. She is about 5 and a half feet tall, Italian brunette with olive eyes and we care about her very much. She may well be in very real danger. She left for a liqueur store and never made it there. She was last seen at a Marathon gas station at 3200 W Warren Ave, Detroit, MI 48208. She was seen leaving with an older man whom she did not know. There is video surveillance footage of her and the man she left with. The workers at the Marathon gas station refuse to cooperate or release the security footage that can tell exactly when she was there and may be able to identify the man she left with. The police can’t help without this footage and the Marathon gas station will not cooperate in any way. When the only people who can help rescue someone refuse to cooperate you have to wonder why. Every minute is precious and the longer this takes, the less likely she will ever be found. The Detroit police and Marathon gas station are well aware of this. Occupiers and activists to do what we do best: spread this like a viral video and give ‘em hell. Demand that they cooperate and help find our fellow and ally, my good friend. Please help in every way you can.
Make a phone call
Call the Marathon Petroleum Business Integrity Helpline: 877-713-8314 Tell them that their store at 3200 West Warren Ave in Detroit, MI has refused to give vital footage to the police in the disappearance of Victoria Darling.
Call the Detroit Police department 313-267-4600 and ask them why they haven’t gotten a warrant to get the tape from Hamze Fuel in the disappearance of Victoria Darling
