Oh Shit! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lisa over at Questioning Transphobia is having financial difficulties. She's having a hard enough time pulling together enough money to pay her regular bills, but now her computer is dying too. Most of you know what an awesome writer she is, so it's bad enough that her posts at QT and comments at our blogs will be missed, but she also does some freelance work at home on her computer. She needs a computer badly! Yes this economy sucks for all of us and alot of us don't have much, but go over to her place and give what you can, PLEASE! The donation button is in the sidebar. Also spread the word at your own blogs, livejournals, social networks. Thank you. Now on your mark, get set, GO!

Hello there!

I have been to Lisa's blog and it is so wonderful that you have posted this!

People think they have to give something huge but they don't realize that even if 100 people give $5 that will help out.

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
Lisa
