What I’m about to do is probably the last thing I ever imagined doing but I have reached rock bottom and i have no idea what else to do.
My name is Khrystin and I, probably just like yourself, am a college student. This morning I received an email from my school informing me that I owe the school $750 by August 15th. I will not be allowed to register for any fall classes until I pay this debt off.
I currently have $120 in my bank account and although I recently got a part-time job, based on the little amount of hours I receive and my pay rate, it doesn’t seem like I’ll be able to reach my goal in time. I cannot bring myself to ask my mom for help as she is already struggling as a single mother of 3 and most definitely does not have the funds to give me $750 right off the back.
So, this is my plan and how I hope you will be able to help: I recently opened my etsy shop and listed the sticker packs I posted above for sale. What I’m really hoping is if I can get people to buy some stickers I’ll be able to receive at least some sort of extra income to help pay this debt off as soon as possible. None of the stickers are listed for more than $5 and Im going to be listing more things in hopes that you will like them. I will also include a personalized “I luv you thank you so much” letter for every order.
The reason I didn’t start a funding campaign is because 1) I honestly have no idea how to do that or how that works and 2) I really didn’t want to ask for help from strangers and not offer anything in return. I figured if I have something to offer to express my gratitude for your help, than I wont feel as desperate as I feel even asking you this right now.
If you’ve read this far, thank you so so so much. I’ve been on Tumblr for over 6 years and have seen how helpful and supportive this community can be. I know this is such a long shot, but I’m really crossing my fingers this will help my situation. Please reblog and feel free to message me with any advice/questions/anything at all. Luv you. xoxo
