firework-comic-deactivated20130 asked: this probably won't work but I'm at my wits end. I'm a freelance writer (I do travel/niche stuff for magazines) and I'm very poor. I am also a comic artist and feminist blogger I guess. I am asking for donations to go to college on my blogs because I need $5000 in 2 days or I can't attend this art program that i was finally accepted to. I'm sorry, that sounds horrible and begging, but I don't know what to do. If you don't want to respond or post this, that's fine. Thank you!

Not sure that this is the best place to ask or for me to repost this, but just this once. And good luck.
