Good morning everyone, and welcome to Radio Free Monday!

Ways to Give:

[tumblr.com profile] jedilora and [livejournal.com profile] ashbet both linked to a fundraiser for Luna, an infant who was hospitalized after she stopped breathing in her sleep. Her parents don't have a lot of money, and lost wages and medical bills will be considerable; you can read more and help out here.

Holly was recently injured and needs surgery, but has to come up with $1900 before they will schedule her; she's in a lot of pain and will be until she can have her injury fixed. You can read more and give to her fundraiser here.

[livejournal.com profile] ereshai linked to a fundraiser for their cousin Jess, who has just undergone her seventh eye surgery for treatment-resistant pediatric strabismus. She's in a tight financial situation, but her surgery has a 60% chance of success if she can stay off work until March 8th. You can read more and help cover her bills and expenses here.

[tumblr.com profile] thewightknight linked to a fundraiser for friends who are trying to stave off foreclosure after health and job issues. You can read more and help out here, or support them by shopping for steampunk wonders at Tin Plate Studios or jewelry at Deja Views.

Anon linked to a fundraiser for Angie, who needs a new transmission for her car right after having paid out for new tires. She's raising funds for the transmission so that she can continue to cover her bills and eat. You can read more and help out here.

[livejournal.com profile] a_phoenixdragon lost her job a couple of months ago and has been unable to find a new one; because of mounting rent and bills, the family was forced to move. They've gotten jobs, but it will be the end of the month before they are paid, and they still have bills and expenses to cover. You can read more here and help out here.

[tumblr.com profile] dreamwaffles's job ended and she's trying to make ends meet until she can land another one. She has a donation page up here but is also selling beaded jewelery through Etsy; you can check out Saxifrage Designs and make a purchase here.


Buy Stuff, Help Out:

[tumblr.com profile] quidwhat linked to a kickstarter for Seven Strengths, a coloring book for resiliency. The book draws inspiration from survival strategies in the natural world and uses them to meditate on strength and resiliency. You can read more and give to the kickstarter here.

[tumblr.com profile] anonymousalchemist linked to [tumblr.com profile] studioaltf4, who is making and selling tote bags, with at least half of all proceeds going to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and women's shelters in Philadelphia. You can check out and purchase the tote bags here; they're pretty cool, including a nifty "HEX THE PATRIARCHY" one.


Activism:

[tumblr.com profile] arukou reminds everyone that Congress is in recess and town halls are in session; this is a great time to go to a town hall and hold your representatives responsible for their decisions about things that matter to you. Make your voices heard! There's a great resource for how to get started at Resistance Recess.

And this has been Radio Free Monday! Thank you for your time. You can post items for my attention at the Radio Free Monday submissions form. If you're not sure how to proceed, here is a little more about what I do and how you can help (or ask for help!). If you're new to fundraising, you may want to check out my guide to fundraising here.
