A cute horse with a pen in her mouth. But aside from that?
Life isn’t fair. A few people seem to have all the money, and some people are just bad luck’s favourite drinking buddy. It’s hard to go a day on Tumblr without seeing a post about someone being in some kind of trouble - debt, eviction, medical emergencies, you name it.
But there are people who want to help. In spite of difficult times, nearly everywhere you go there are people with spare cash, spare time and a good heart who want to help others through rough patches. And since finding the right person to help isn’t always easy, what we want to do here is help connect them.
That’s all this is! A place for people to find just the help they’re looking for. You can read a more detailed summary of how the Tumblrpon Help Exchange works on our page. And this is for all kinds of help too - not just money. Check out what we’re prepared to organise.
But! It needs YOU to work. THE relies on cumulative signal boosting. People who want help submit their problems to us, and we list them. Then, we post the list of all currently unsolved problems every day (11pm GMT, 6pm EST, 3pm PST, 9am AEST). People who can help follow the blog, so this list turns up on their dashboards every day. The more people following, the more people see your ad, and the more likely you are to find the right help. The more ads are posted, the more likely you are to see one you can hep with. The more the merrier!
So please, if you think this is worthwhile:
The first list will go up the same day we have ads to make a list, hopefully tomorrow!
And then I was doing another thing! This is an ongoing initiative for helping people with problems connect to people who can help. It runs on people following and reblogging, so do that now!
