USE THESE REDDIT SUBS INSTEAD PLEASE FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!!!!!!!!
Hate Reddit if you want, but using these subs are your best chance. People gather in these subs because they have charity to spare:
I never see anyone actually getting any significant donations on tumblr and to be honest, tumblr is the worst place to ask for assistance. Use it as your last resort, it frustrates me to no end seeing people begging for help, reblogging the same post over and over, the same types of posts over and over, to no avail, when people are waiting to help you on a different part of the web
GO TO WHERE THE HELP IS. IF YOU WANT DIRECT ACTION TO WORK STOP WITH TUMBLR AND USE REDDIT.
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF SATAN REBLOG THIS SO WE CAN START REDUCING THE AMOUNT OF DONATION POSTS THAT GET STUCK FLOATING AROUND THIS WEBSITE
Note that r/legaladvice is for USA legal advice not donation requests.
This post is uncharitable to people who may have already sought these resources via Reddit, unkind to the people who actually didn’t know about them, and one step away from being misinformation.
It contains valuable information, and many people with Tumblr fundraisers probably COULD use that information, so I don’t want to discount the whole post or OP’s intent, but I find its tone intensely unkind.
Don’t go harass OP about it, it’s already been explained here/in the notes & I have no idea how old this post is!
This post contains exactly four resources which allow fundraising, without labeling which they are. (r/Assistance, r/Charity, r/care, r/gofundme).
Thank you so much for these resources, but please find a way to offer resources people may not know about without assuming everyone posting a fundraiser on Tumblr hasn’t tried them. Some people even post in both places. Tbh, I encourage you to post in both places.
If you’re new to reddit, I’ll go over things like “what’s karma?” at the end of this post. Look for the sunflowers.🌻🌻 It’s not as complicated as it sounds; karma’s not hard to earn if you have the time to, but the main issue IS time.
Don’t feel bad about sharing your GoFundMe/whatever on Tumblr. People on Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook—along with friends and family—paid my friend’s bills when he missed work due to COVID. This site is full of people who want to help; please seek that help, we want to support you. But yes, these are good resources that I recommend looking over.
💵: Offers financial donations.
❗️: Has some minimum account age/karma requirements. (If you’ll still need the help in 30-90 days, it may be worth creating and using a reddit account.)
✅: No minimum account age/karma requirements.
Places to request financial donations or other tangible help:
❗️💵 r/Assistance: You can seek financial assistance here. You must be an active, established redditor.
- You must have regular reddit activity for 60 days prior to making your request, and (I think) must continue that regular reddit activity after.
- You must wait 30 days between fulfilled requests.
Reblogging this version too. It looks like there’s even more “‘help”’ subreddits that have ridiculous post standards, but for financial donation ones that does make a bit more sense than it does for a pizza/food assistance sub.
I’ll plug Freepizzadude on this reblog too, though.
