Ok, so I’m trying one more time with the donation button. I set one up a while ago, but then I found out that Ukrainian PayPal doesn’t allow money transfers from abroad. Since that time, I have talked to some people in Ukraine who do have the button, and came to the general conclusion that it is possible for me to use PayPal donations if I find a mediator: somebody with a working PayPal account situated in any of the countries that allow incoming money transfers. Now a close relative from Germany has agreed to help me out on this and I really hope it’ll work this time.
Last time I asked here for money, it was for a large debt our family was in (we are still dealing with that one now, with about $200 left to repay until 2015). The overall financial situation in my family was pretty bad then, but now it’s much worse. I live on the north of Ukraine, and our minimal income has been greatly impacted by the political situation our country is now in, with the massive rise of prices and our recent loss of some social payments we depended on. In addition to that, I have already lost a job that was supposed to start in a few weeks, because now the companies in Ukraine are going bankrupt. There’s almost no chance I’ll be able to find a new one soon, even though I’m still trying to. Long story short, we’re in deep shit.
The most problematic expense of our family now is the medication: for my father (Parkinson’s disease), for my brother (autism) and my mother (hypothyroidism). Every month, that’s roughly $50. In this country, that’s a lot. We still have bills, other debts, including bank loans, but we more or less manage to deal with them with our income alone, even though that leaves very little money for food and no money for any additional purchases. But it’s those $50 that we every month struggle to produce from thin air. Also, there’s another $50 for my father’s routine hospitalization, which he’s gonna need soon. That’s why I have nowhere else to turn to, except you guys. I remember I got amazing response the first time I tried that, only to be cockblocked by PayPal’s restrictions. For that, I’m still very grateful and hope I can ask for the same thing again. I don’t expect much, of course. If you could donate anything, even $1, it would be very helpful.
I don’t have much to offer in return, but if any of you wants a commission in a form of a graphic/gifset/anything PS related, any fandom you want (you can check out my stuff here and here), I’ll be happy to make it for you. Just hit me up if you plan to make the donations. I will keep you guys updated regarding any changes and the amount donated.
Please, if it’s not a problem for you, spread this post around. I’ll be reblogging it a few times, but I know I don’t have enough followers. Thanks! ♥

Why do adults think “So what’s your major? Oh, and what are you going to do with that?” is acceptable small talk
What am I going to do with my degree? Hang it on the wall and cry, probably
