Hello friends, I am raising money to help with my school costs. Five years ago, I stopped attending college because I was suffering from depression and a crippling social anxiety that made it damn near impossible for me to go to class, let alone participate in class. I have since been working a retail job, working on art in my free time, attended therapy and am now able to control my depression and anxiety, learning about the universe, and completely immersing myself in the writings of Carl Sagan. Upon reading The Demon Haunted World, I decided to go back to school to pursue a career in Astrobiology. I am 24 now, which means I officially qualify for financial aid, but because of the way I stopped going to school five years prior (I just stopped going which, as it turns out, is a really bad idea), I am unable to actually receive any financial aid until I’ve completed a few semesters with good grades. I feel like a huge idiot and am heartbroken because although I am incredibly motivated and excited to be going back to school, I can’t afford it. The actual cost of my classes has been covered by a waver supplied by the California Community Colleges but textbooks, supplies, and transportation are very expensive.
I am asking you for help. I don’t like to take money or any sort of gift without feeling that I have somehow deserved it, so I am offering these prints and originals at discounted prices. If you are interested in helping this future scientist out but don’t want any of the items I have available either here or in my shop, I am accepting donations*. As a sincere thank you for any amount donated*, I will draw you a little picture and mail it to you.
Here are a few of the prints and originals I have available to purchase. Prices are found by clicking the image and if you are interested in any, please email me at ambirdart(at)gmail.com with the title of the piece or print and your shipping address. If the piece you are interested in is still available, an invoice will be emailed to you as soon as I can and shipping will occur within 72 hours once payment has processed.
Every dollar spent goes to my textbooks, school supplies, gas & car upkeep to get me to and from school, various school fees (health, ID, parking pass, etc), and vegetables.
Anything you could do to help, even if you just stopped scrolling to read this or reblogged this post or bought something or donated* $1, is greatly and sincerely, from the bottom of my heart sincerely, appreciated.
It took me 5 years to realize what I want to do with my life. I’m ready. I am so ready and I won’t let any of you down.
*donation button can be found in the toolbar on my blog.
