Stride's Coffee Funds
I'm not a "Content Creator". I'm just a Pirate with a recessed Bard gene, and Cripple Privileges going WILDLY un-checked. See the public post below? That'll explain.

Stride's Coffee Funds

Don't donate to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Donate to people with Muscular Dystrophy. Make a real positive change in somebody's day-to-day life. Just my suggestion.

Me?

Awesome.

Some cute "Tiny Tim" kid?

That's cool too. I don't blame you a bit, and I still thank you sincerely.


I don't want to waste to much time bashing the MDA. You can find plenty elsewhere on the net.
Basically the funding goes to things that make good photo ops. Aside from that, no money from their telethons has ever been properly accounted for. They have a few "Summer Camp" events that they claim are very expensive but are fully provided for by volunteers, tax boons, and donated food. The offices are pyramid schemes disguised as non-profits. "Disabled" people are trained to train disabled people to train disabled people to talk about the importance of their work for their self esteem...

Okay, I'll shut up now.


Anyway, I don't have a BS goal for this campaign. I'm not saving up for some thing that will end a financial emergency. I'm living on Disability checks. Disability checks that are half of what drug addicts receive, because I've never payed into taxes to qualify for more. I get by most times. I make alot of sacrifices and cut alot of corners to be able to say "I get by". It's hard as hell and it doesn't end. That's why I'm here.

I could pick a medical device or medication that ObamaCare says I can pay for myself. That way my campaign page would conform to the usual eBegging format of, "Help me get this." It's not true though, and I'm not going to come up with a new crisis every month, or tell you all, "That's ONE wheelchair tire. Let's make it a pair! :)."

...sounds like an MDA telethon actually. [cough]

I'm not offering anything in exchange for your $1 except my gratitude for making things a little easier. Truth is I'd set the tiers lower but subscribestar has a dollar minimum. I'm not good at playing the movie's "inspirational cripple" but maybe I'll start a blog if I get an audience all'a sudden. People deserve a report on how they've helped me at least.

Thank you for your time.

This is what all this money has turned you into now? You had priorities once, damn you! The Stride -I- knew would have saved up to buy a spoon FIRST, because the boxed sugar -cubes- cost $1 more per pound than a bag of granulated! You've changed...
