These are my brothers. They’re incredibly smart, funny, kind kids. They’re both in the gifted program at their school. They get good grades. I love them with all my heart. The older one is out and proud about being gay. He doesn’t get bullied very much, but I worry about him. The younger one suffers from mild tourrettes syndrome. He’s really picked on at school because he’s small, and very quiet, and not good at controlling his emotions due to the tourettes.
But my family is struggling. There’s not going to be a Christmas this year for these kids. I can only afford small gifts for everyone this year, I’m unemployed. Usually I go all out on Christmas because I know my parents are poor, but I’m unable to this year.
But I know tumblr is good at raising money. I’d like to do something really special for these boys. I would like to get them each a 3DS and a copy of each of the new Pokemon games. They deserve the world, but maybe, just maybe, I can give them this.
I started a GoFundMe campaign. I’d like to raise $500 for two 3DS’s and the Pokemon games. Any leftover funds will go toward candy and small things for the boys. Please, please, I really want these kids to be able to go to school and not have to tell their friends that their family was too poor to afford gifts this year. They’re picked on and teased enough, and I worry about them so much. I’m not able to be there for them all the time because I had a falling out with their father (my stepfather) and he doesn’t like me to be too involved in their lives.
So please, donate, or signal boost for me. Every dollar helps. There are two weeks til Christmas, and I’d like to be able to do something big for these kids.
