The Story

**** Update 5/7: Running out of time and need to get the number up to roughly $1500 on here (via here or donations through the PP.me link on my blog) before May 18th. As stated below, $540 of what's been raised is from earlier and is long gone. I need roughly $1000 (somewhere between 900 and 1000) to keep it off the auction block. Any help will do. If all you can do is share this campaign or the blog, that's okay, really. The more people who see it, the better chances I have of making my goal and saving my belongings. 

***Update 4/26: I am behind on storage and it's scheduled for auction May 18th. Until May 1st, I owe roughly $700 (two months rent plus late fees and the auction fee). The funds raised to date ($540) are already spent. I've had two job interviews and no offers. Right now, I'm focused on saving my stuff from auction, looking for work, and salvaging a class I took an incomplete on last Fall term. 

**Update 3/26: I've now been out of the apartment since 3/2. I do not have an eviction on my record. That was part of the deal made on 2/23. I stayed for two weeks at one friend's place on the west side, and am now in North Portland with another pair of friends. I do still desperately need to get back on my feet and soon. I am job hunting with little success, but I keep trying. I really need to pay storage for March and ideally April, but have maybe $15 to my name. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Storage is now $280/mo and I have late fees for March. Either here or on my blog with the PP button helps.


I'm freaking out right now. This is that rock bottom I never thought I'd hit. 

I was evicted from my apartment and manage to get nearly all my stuff out, with the vast majority of it crammed into an 8x20 storage unit that costs $280/month. As I'm struggling to find work as well as getting back on my feet into a new place, I've been unable to pay that and keep my stuff safe and accessible. 

Any funds raised in the next few days or so will go to storage. On May 1st, May rent will also get tacked on and I'll be close to needing $1000. 

Please help spread the word even if you have already donated or are unable to donate.
Thank you.

So I would appreciate any future donations go through the PPmeas I have to pay before noon tomorrow. He'd have to get special permission to pull it early due to the large amount and he doesn't think he'll get it.

Between what hasn't been used from on here and what I've gotten from others off of here, I'm halfway to the needed amount. I have a touch over 500 between sources. If I know I can get the remaining amount before the end of the week, I can get him to pull storage from auction. But I need to know I'll have it. So, keep spreading the word... I'll announce if I get it pulled from the auction list... but i need to know I'll have the funds.

Another two donations... one on here and another via PP. I'll add that one shortly. I still have a long way to go here... need to get to roughly 1500-1600 showing on here before 6pm tomorrow night. I have so many precious things in there... it scares me to lose it all. Until i find work, I'm going to reactivate my Taskrabbit profile (may take a bit to do that, unfortunately) and take on gigs. I was deactivated during the eviction and move-out because I couldn't concentrate on anything else. The gigs aren't steady and don't pay a lot, but they'll help with storage once I get back into the groove. Despite my injuries, I'm actually rather popular for furniture assembly because many people trust having a woman do it rather than some strange guy. 
Until that happens, I still need the help. I'm running out of time on storage. Every share helps and every donation gets me closer to saving it all.

Thank you to all those who have helped in one way or another. Keep it coming. I need a miracle. 

Thank you everyone.
Amanda
