If you had a choice between buying your life sustaining medications, or paying the electric bill. What would you do?
I started this crowd-sourcing event because quite frankly, it’s my last hope. Due to ongoing medical expenses I have become deeply in debt. So far in debt that I was living with no electricity or water and have been forced to living in and out of homeless shelters for the past 4 months. I’ve sold almost all of my possessions but the debt is just too much. I blog here about my experiences every day.
Unfortunately unless some kind of miracle happens it looks like I could be going back to the shelter again soon.
Let me give you some of my background. I have been a Pligg CMS developer for 7 years. I have written more modules and templates for Pligg CMS than anyone else in on the entire planet. I bleed for Open Source. I’ve devoted my life to this open source project. You guys are my only family.
Let me make one thing clear. All the Pligg donate buttons, advertising revenue, hosting referral kickbacks, etc. I don’t see a single penny from that. It doesn’t even cross my desk. It all goes into Pligg LLC’s overhead. Which is understandably quite high for such a popular CMS.
I’ve helped thousands of people in the Pligg forums. I don’t get paid to do that. I do it because I love and believe in the project. Well now I’m the one asking for help, and I really need your help.
I’m offering everyone who participates a bunch of rewards. So please-please-please do something nice by helping out a total stranger by clicking the donate button on the right. You can Chipin how ever much you are comfortable with. You can use PayPal, Debit Cards, Visa, Master Card, even bank transfers.
If you want to give a tangible item you can check out my wishlist. Please bookmark my blog and share it with friends, or follow me on Facebook. I often have contests and change the rewards quite frequently.
I thank you for any support you can provide.
