    But we need some money for food until the 31st, and at least $20 for my doctor copays. All told about $150 USD, and I'm completely fine with paying anyone that helps back on the 31st.

    I really hate asking, and if nobody wants to just give I have RAM for sale as well as a matched set of 1366 Xeons with 12GB RAM and coolers. If you would like proof of my lack of money I can provide it. I would be fine not eating for a week, but my fiancee and her son are different.

    My paypal is kayinstorm@gmail.com. Anything you can do will help.

    Mods if this is a problem LMK. Don't want to cause issues.

    I can donate $10. If we all chip in a little...

    I don’t want or need it back. :)

    Why not start a crowd funding page rather than people blindly donating? It'd be more transparent and more folks likely to gift.

    Crowd funding takes time. Kayin needs the cash now, as is usually the case for people who need to eat.

    I've sent some help. In a world of so much consumption, no one should be going hungry.

    I donated what I can yesterday, hope it helps.

    Obviously entirely up to Kayin, but I'd be a lot more comfortable giving to a crowd funding page than a paypal address. If that's seen as tight/uncaring, then so be it. I do wish Kayin well!

    Thanks to everyone who has helped, whether it's money or just a positive thought in my direction.

    I've received about half of what I have to pay, thankfully. Today is groceries and medication that I can't stop taking. About all that's left is doctor copays and gas to appointments. Next month will be much easier, thankfully.

    I’ve sent $20 to help a little. As above, no one should starve in these times. It’s only an hour at work, I can definitely spare an hour to help out.

    Hope you’re in better shape soon!!

    So Karen had to go to the ER (A&E) for an abscess while on chemotherapy. She has a few prescriptions to pick up and has to go back tomorrow night to change the packing so we're running into an unexpected expense before the 30th. I'm going to upload a picture of the release papers so you guys know that I'm not pulling your leg.

    There's nothing like unexpected expenses.

    You're welcome... I guess.

    Exactly. And he's right too. I have been remiss. I owe everyone that gave a debt. One that I hope I can repay someday. And my family and I will not forget what you've done for us. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.
