The Supernatural and Doctor Who fandoms can, and have, done some amazing things over the years. We’ve come together and helped many of our fellow fans, and right now one of our own is in need of our help.

This is Jason, and Jason isn’t just a face of another missing person- Jason is my friend. Once, I asked Jason if he had a string of tinsel hanging about at home that I could use in a photoshoot, and he came to college the next day with a cardboard box full of different colours of tinsel and fairy lights. He’s so human and I need your help.
Jason is a good guy and he’s in trouble now- the last tweet he sent said “I find it really sad that we that everyone that i tried to get help. From just. Turned. Their. Back”. We’re all afraid. He’s been missing for over four days now. Please, PLEASE signal boost this.
As many of you have heard recently, I have serious medical problems that cost me around half of my earnings every month to pay for (medicine, doctors, etc. The total is around 350 or so dollars). The rest basically all goes to rent, car insurance, medical insurance (that pays for almost nothing),…
I live with my grandma in a 2 bdrm apartment and she told me today that we’re already in the process of being evicted. Two more weeks, if we don’t have the money, and we’re out. We have no car of our own, no place to stay in this town, and nowhere we can stay where we can get to our jobs. THIS IS REALLY URGENT AND I’LL BE TRYING TO SELL THINGS OF MY OWN TO GET MONEY, BUT IF I CAN’T SELL ANYTHING, THIS IS A NECESSITY!!! Please help out..
I’m getting over my shame and internalized ableism and asking for help. I’m a chronically ill unemployed trans gurl who just left sex work (as in, yesterday) because I finally lost my shit. I’m also moving out of my abusive household in June, around the 15th or so. I don’t have a place to stay yet so the more money I have saved up, the more likely someone is going to trust me to move in with them.
Thanks to sex work and friends donating, I’ve saved up $2,000 for deposits, first/last month’s rent, housing applications, etc. I’m trying to raise another $2,000 to get me through the summer. Starting September/October, I should be receiving financial aid from my university, so that will help.
To give you an idea of where the money is going:
- Rent for a shared room is $500-$550/month
- Utilities are anywhere between $20-$60/month
- I’m limiting myself to $100-$125/month for food
- Gas is $40 a full tank, so about a $80/month if I do this right
I’ll also be looking for a job at this time. I have an open interview tomorrow so hopefully I’ll get called for a second interview!
Important to note! My memoir, Trauma Queen, is aiming to be published on May 31st, 2013. It’s going to cost $20, so if you want to hold off donating to buy the book, that’s totally understandable. I have a collection of writing and art here (x) that you can read/watch, and a zine here (x). I’ll also be selling various articles of clothing, shoes, collector’s items, etc. in the next week or so.
Signal boosting would be appreciated, and any donations would be very helpful. <3
¡Gracias! / Thank you!,
P.S. (if the link doesn’t work, there’s a donate button on my page.)
Give what you can in love + solidarity + struggle. Can’t wait for Trauma Queen when its release this month!
boost boost boost!!!
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.

On 30 April 2013, Ingrid Vergara’s daughter received a text message that read: “Hello bitch, your mum was killed, hahaha” (hola perra mataron a tu mama jajajaja). MOVICE campaigns for the restitution of misappropriated lands in Colombia and works to denounce paramilitary groups operating within a culture of impunity. Ingrid Vergara’s daughter has been targeted on several occasions in the past in an attempt to force her mother to stop her human rights work. Members of the Sucre branch of MOVICE have repeatedly received death threats in the past.
Listen, I know tumblr only cares about American news, but this is really fucking tragic, and if this doesn’t get an coverage I will be incredibly angry.

This is my sister Amber Rose Cooper. She’s thirteen years old and has gone missing as of 7:10 AM, May 9th 2013. We have been unable to find her in the past 12 hours and police refuse to do anything to help us. We can’t ping her phone, and she won’t pick up. Her last text message was sent at 3:25 PM to my mother. She went missing in Crescent City, California (95531).
She’s about 5’3” and 121lbs, with bleach blonde hair, blue-hazel eyes, and is wearing a men’s jacket, hufflepuff beanie, and baggy pants.
If you have any information about her, please call (707)-464-3841 or text my cellphone at (707)-457-2773 or my mother’s (707)-457-2124.
Please help us find her. :c
