I really, really didn’t want to have to do this, but I’m at the point where I have no other options. My work permit expired a few weeks ago and I’ve been informed that it’s not getting renewed and that there is nothing I can do to get it renewed. I’m pretty much stranded - I still have a residency permit, but that’s it. All I can do is exist.
My only option now is to get a study permit because I can still work on that (though only part time, as I have to be enrolled in full time studies to get the permit). Studying means I have to pay foreign student fees (which I can’t afford).
But that’s not what I’m asking; I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.
Right now I can’t afford to pay my rent. It’s only $350CAD a month, but I’m screwed if I can’t tide myself over until I can start working again.
So, here’s the thing:
I have an etsy account. I will take commissions for amigurumi as well as the beards. I can make you a custom set of rune stones - in any character set. Even tengwar. Sets of Newt Geiszler tattoo sleeves - or sleeves with a custom image!
I will write you literally anything for $5 ($10, if you want something longer than 2k words). I will, as limited as my style may prove to be, draw whoever you want for $2.
Get in touch with me and I’ll make you a full chainmail shirt in three weeks. I could do kingsweave in four.
If you don’t particularly want anything but still want to help out (because you’re genuinely an amazing person, if you do) I put a donate button on my blog or you can click right here.
I’ve seen tumblr work miracles before. Please, if you can’t help, at least share this.
(tl;dr - my work permit expired without a renewal and I can’t pay my rent - please help)
