A tribute to the amazing pandas
we may not yet have reached our glory, but I will gladly join the fight
and when our children tell their story, they’ll tell the story of tonight

*URGENT: PLEASE READ/SIGNAL BOOST*
Thursday, August 1st: Hello everyone, I’m Gemma your local disaster asking for help again, due to some extra bills and direct debits my bank acct is overdrawn and I desperately need help.
As most of you are aware, I have been struggling financially for quite some time due to my welfare benefits (U.C & Housing Benefit) being revoked, under the UK’s controversial changes to how benefits are assessed and assigned. And due to my mental health and some unfortunate DWP mess-ups, my benefits have been on and off sanctions for over a year now. I am currently waiting for the DWP to send me for a medical assessment, which I am hoping will fix my benefits and offer me more assistance as I am unable to work due to my persistent low mood and fatigue.
However, the process and paperwork for a medical can take weeks and often months to go through (I have been waiting since January). And due to immense stress and anxiety to make ends meet, my mental health has quickly declined and is gradually getting worse. The only bright side of my situation is that the temporary sanction that was placed on my benefit, due to DWP negligence has been lifted, so I am hoping to expect payment of £128.88 at the end of August, but that is 4 weeks away. *U.C is paid monthly*
Previous donations have gone to help me pay my rent and bills. However, I still need help to pay my overdrawn account and groceries to get and it would really mean a lot to me if I could get some help until the end of August when I’m due my next welfare payment.
If anyone could spare any amount to help me, even if it’s just £1/$1/€1, it would literally save my life, and sharing definitely helps just as much as donations. Nobody is obligated in any way to donate or buy anything off my wishlist if they can’t or don’t want to, I know we’re all struggling.
*wishlist is to help replace some damaged appliances*
Thank you for your help 💖

August, 2nd: Please consider helping out guys if you possibly can. If anyone can spare anything at all to help, even if it’s just a £1/$1 or a reblog, it would mean so much to me.
This is inspired by a conversation I had with @bravealm about a week ago, and that’s all the context you get for this bizarre duck monologue
