I want to extend a truly heartfelt thanks to you FullyAutomaticWafflePress for the good and well researched advice.

Unfortunately we are not eligible for such a thing, I have looked into it (and many other options) before. Even spoke to several social workers who specialize in helping people with these sorts of problems. Everything is fu**** if I am honest and there is nothing that can be done except for what I am doing. Really speaks to how terrible and rigged the welfare system is, where a tiny sliver of Means can affect whether you get help or not, regardless of your cost of living and or overall situation :(

Saw the donation drive yesterday and donated a little something. Really sad to read about your situation, :'( I hope things eventually improve for you and your mother.

Best of luck.

I understand how it is, i know you're doing everything you can to make ends meet. I'm a caregiver for my own older brother (albeit in a much better financial situation). Have a little something from PayPal, I hope it helps with the bills.

Sorry but you should really use a proper service for this as currently there is absolutely no way to remotely ensure this is a legitimate donation. The fact that this is the top post on the main page here is concerning.

Not qualifying for government support and then not even mentioning the reasoning why is shady.

Are we allowed to start threads here for donations? I would really think this would be against forum rules unless some sort of exception is being made here.


Anyway, thanks for being transparent with how much you are getting from donations and for showing proper receipts (Not just price quotes)

I consider Meso to be a solid guy who has done some good work and carried himself honestly in every interaction I've had with him. I advocate for his integrity.

Your post fits the definition of concern trolling to a tee, and it being your very first post here doesn't help your credibility. If your intent was to be helpful, then you should seriously reconsider your approach. To implicitly accuse him of scamming so lightly, without the courage of conviction, over such a small amount of money is unseemly. If he was truly scamming, there are far better ways to do it that don't involve him baring his situation to the world like he has - which, by the way, takes a lot of bravery and humility to do.

If you don't want to help, then you don't have to. That's all there is to it.

Yeah, we're getting through a $400 music commission right now, and I have to say, the level of effort he's putting in on top of caretaking to get me the music I paid for is deeply inconsistent with this being a scam.

Traditionally in a scam, you vanish with the money; you don't stick around and deliver absolute bangers, one track after the other.

I'm giving what I can. Meso is and has been an absolute pillar of the community for years. It's worth supporting those who support others.
