Ariane, aka LegendaryArmor or DrowVisionary, is a very wonderful person in a terrible situation. She lost her previous job due to illness, quickly ran out of savings and fell into debt. She literally starved for five weeks because she couldn’t afford food and lost 40 pounds. She has started to get back on her feet, found a part-time job, and is eating now. However, she just went to the hospital because of terrible stomach aches and it turns out that she was having them because her system can’t digest food well anymore due to the weeks of starvation.
She has no insurance, so now she has a huge hospital bill to pay on top of all the things she was already struggling to pay for. She is too sick to work but she is going to anyway. She makes minimum wage and cannot afford to pay all these debts on her own, even over a long period of time.
We are a group of artists and writers trying to raise money to help our friend out. We’re taking drawing and writing commissions. Anything we earn will go directly to Ariane. Click here for commission prices and examples of our work.
Artists and writers participating so far are Shatterstag, Frowny, Brokenheartedfestivities, Natural-killer-cyborg, Splitbricks, and Umiyuki. We are trying to get more people involved, so if you want to help us out, be sure to drop us a line!
You can also simply donate money to Ariane on PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org. Every little bit helps — seriously, 5 bucks can make a difference.
Please commission us, donate, or at least reblog this post and help spread the word, whether you know Ariane or not.
Thank you. ♥
Afraid I can’t donate, but I can try to spread the word.
