So, a friend of mine is in a really bad spot. [livejournal.com profile] robertsloan2 is living in San Francisco in a residence hotel on $750 a month disability. His rent is $600. (Or something like this. My details may be off but it is ridiculous.) While he gets food stamps, this puts him in a place where he cannot afford anything beyond bare necessities, and sometimes not even that.

Robert's computer died this morning. We are looking at donating our working laptop, but it is six years old, and I'm not sure how much time it has left. The Internet is Robert's support network and more than that, his livelihood, as he is a writer and looking to self-publish. Without a working computer, he can't do any of this.

Because of complications with Social Security counting any money that Robert receives through his paypal as income (and will thus take it out of his disability checks), I will be acting as guardian for the collected funds and will arrange to have the laptop purchased and sent to him, and will make sure that he receives any funds leftover. My paypal is mistressnonny@gmail.com.

Every little bit helps. Please pass this around! Thank you guys! :)

(And if someone else wants to write a more concise version, please go right ahead. I am not so great at doing that, LOL.)

Boosted! Not fancy on my part, but I'm seriously exhausted today. Just wanted to make sure to get the word out! <3

While I really don't have the cash funds to help, I do have a older (maybe 6 years or so) laptop that works well enough to do internet and I used to play WoW on it. I am not sure how much it would cost to ship, but it is just sitting here collecting dust. Might need to be wiped and new OS if he wants it fresh and clean. Otherwise I would remove all my stuff from it. I just don't know when I will be able to ship it. This month is out as I am already in the red due to having to replace my cell phone. If you could get help with the shipping, I could get it shipped out asap. It's a Gateway and would have to get it opened up and started up to give you details on the other specs. I did upgrade the RAM on it back in the day.
