Default cnredd's Avatar Space For Rent

I'll be honest with you...I'm a VERY desperate person...

My unemployment ran out a month ago...I have about $25 bucks and a $50 visa card I got for Christmas to my name...I've even had to go through my "dental funds" to get by...

I've been applying to every job in existence, even going so far as to sometimes say "I'm not qualified for the position, but if you have something else available..." in my cover letters...

Soon my bills will be overdue and I fear the electric, cable, gas and water will be shut off...

I hate to do this, but I need help...

I'm holding an auction for my avatar space...The highest bidder will get me to use ANY avatar they feel like for TWO months (no offensive material obviously)...A big Obama symbol...Honey Boo Boo...Anything that tickles your fancy...

Of course, regular donations are always accepted...

The auction starts now and will run until midnight January 10th...I will start using the avatar choice of the highest bidder beginning January 11th until March 11th...

I've seen forums do this on occasion to generate revenue for the forum and always avoided it, but now my back is up against the wall...

ah crap....I'm sorry to hear this

I wish I could offer advice or something ... do you have any charitable groups that can help out? I know when I was in bad need, I got help from some local groups with electric.

What about getting a roommate and rental income?

(and i take back every mean nasty snarky thing I said)

I am really sorry to hear. I wish I could help but cash is tight right now. I am lucky enough to live with my parents and have no true *need* for money, nor any dependents.

I hope something turns up soon.

I actually have two roommates, so the rent itself is covered, but not enough to cover everything...I'm not worried about getting thrown out of the house...The issue is a house with nothing running...

Right on this thread...

Mention your bid so everyone can see, then wait to see if anyone tops it...
