Hi! I’m Alisa Tana. My Partner, Hunter Hunnie, and I, along with our fur-kids, could use a helping hand.
If you can’t help financially, please help by sharing
Hunter is a transwoman, QA developer, and fighting a constant battle with depression and chronic pain. I am a freelance artist and animator. Grissel is our elderly 90lb English Mastiff; Rengar and Opal are our super-lovey kitties. Grissel is blind in one eye, and Rengar is deaf, and every day with them helps us keep going.
Early last year, Hunter and I lost the job we were working on together when the project producer went to jail and his investors lost faith in the project. After that, Hunter and I asked to stay with my mother for a month or two while we looked for more stable work; but a fight with her and her son left the both of us standing out in the rain with nothing but the clothes on our backs.
A couple of our friends were kind enough to house us for this past year, but the entire experience left Hunter and I emotionally and physically drained and fragile. We’ve spent the past year, trying to build our constitutions back up. I’ve been working as a freelance artist, making just enough to pay for our monthly pet expenses. Hunter finally feels strong enough to work again; she recently completed a freelance web development project, but we’re still waiting for the paycheck from that to arrive.
The folks we’ve been staying with have been extremely helpful, but they’ve had their own financial difficulties recently, and we’ve been given a hard move-out date of January 31st.
Even with Hunter and I returning to work, we won’t get paid fast enough to pay the move-in costs of a new place, which is where we could really use your help.
We’re looking at getting a simple place, and have found one that may be perfect for us and our animals. The total move-in cost is $2000 ($1300 deposit and $700 rent). The sooner we can get this money, the better our chances of securing this rental unit.
Also, if you have any quick turn-around web development, QA, graphic design, other artwork, or sewing related jobs, Hunter and I are available to do those in exchange for your help. Please feel free to contact us for any work offers.
