Good morning everyone, and welcome to Radio Free Monday!

Ways to Give:

[tumblr.com profile] dreamwaffles linked to a fundraiser for Miranda, a close friend who is escaping an abusive home; yesterday morning she was assaulted by her father and is planning to live in her car until she can get her feet under her, but hoping she doesn't have to. You can read more and help her afford a safe living situation here.

[tumblr.com profile] guineapigwithaflamethrower recently had a really terrible day (the anniversary of her father's death) and spilled an entire glass of wine on her laptop, which now needs to be replaced; as a receptionist at a rape-crisis center she's not exactly wealthy. You can read more and donate at her youcaring; also if anyone has a line on a used macbook they'd be willing to sell, you can get in touch via tumblr. (I know her a bit and she's really good people; this is a suck thing to have happen on an already terrible day.)

[tumblr.com profile] rionsanura linked to a fundraiser for Tredici Bacci, an italian-cinema-soundtrack inspired band/chamber orchestra. They're trying to get to South By Southwest but will be playing without compensation, so they need travel funding. You can read more and give here; I think $10 for their entire discography in download form is a pretty good deal, having listened to some of their tunes. You can also check out the group on Band Camp here but warning the banner is a little NSFW (butts!).

[tumblr.com profile] rilee16 is still struggling to cover medical expenses after two head injuries last year, and hasn't been cleared to return to work, thus can't earn money to cover basic living costs, let alone the bills they've received, including a recent rent increase. They literally have no money left until their next worker's comp check comes, which means no gas money for their car, so they can't get anywhere to do odd jobs for bill money. You can read more and help out here.


Help For Free:

[personal profile] brainwane has a post up calling for volunteers with fluent written English to provide 90-minute online English tutoring sessions between now and April 3rd. This will be helping non-US students applying for (primarily tech) internships who are at a disadvantage because of undeveloped written English skills, who need some kind, nonjudgemental help with their written applications. You can read more and find out how to help here.


Activism:

Alma linked to Children Of A Different Sky, a forthcoming story anthology which is raising funds for refugee aid. You can read more and support the Indiegogo here.

I'm relinking this week to She's Running, a new podcast about women running for local, state, and federal office. The podcast interviews women about their inspirations, support systems, and challenges. You can listen to the first episode here or on iTunes -- and remember to rate and review if you do! (I really enjoyed episode one; I haven't listened to episode two yet but I'm looking forward to it.)


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.
