I’ve shared my Ko-fi link below low every post. I have used in the past when my financial issues became too much for me to handle and I was desperate to pay bills or afford food…
And I can only say, I’ve had some huge support here! ♥ And for that, I’m so grateful that with every donation I got in the past, I seriously cried! Some made me sob for several minutes, as people that know me, but also people I’ve never met, have used their PayPal to help me get food and pay my bills! It’s a kindness I’ll probably never be able to return, as I don’t see my financial situation getting better anytime soon, unfortunately…
I feel like this whenever I get my income. So many taxes and bills and the rent… Making me feel very poor just after I got it and, Arwen and I still need food, I sometimes need clothes and shoes and my car doesn’t drive do free either (unfortunately).
So why a goal of collecting a game every month? Why not keep it to asking help with food, so I’d have a little extra left for the game?
Because that would feel unfair! I’d still be asking to buy games, but indirectly. I don’t really need money for food at the moment, so I should not mask it like that. I’d feel like I would trick people into giving me their hard earned money whil I’d love to use that to buy a game. Which is not a basic necessity, but something I’d love to collect and play. So I’m being 200% honest and ask for support to finally be able to expand my gaming collection.
I’m looking for pre-owned games to keep the cost down. Sometimes there are sales, where a new game is cheaper than a used one 🤔. Of course I’ll go for the cheapest option!
The 3 games I’m aiming for first. If it’s still cheap, I may be able to order the first game on the 11th (I’m writing this on the 10th, to be shared on the 12th). So hopefully I’ll be able to receive the first game on the day that I share this post.
If you’re willing and able to help me, of course I would be very grateful ♥!
I understand how this may seem as a “wrong goal” to set for Ko-fi… I have struggled myself with “daring to set it” as it’s not anything basic that I definitely need to survive. It is not something that I can eat, it’s not a bill that makes sure I have some heating or electricity or internet. It’s asking for support to buy one Lego game (preferably pre-owned/cheap option) every month during this year. You may wonder then why I did set this goal and why I am bringing it to your attention (by writing this post about it, by sharing it on my Twitter feed). And, because I love transparency and honesty, I will try to explain it to the best of my abilities.
I love gaming. I may be bad at it. I may often require help of kind friends when I am stuck. But I do enjoy it. And as long as I can remember, I have loved the Lego games, especially when I can enjoy it coop with a (online) friend. I also love collecting physical games, something I haven’t been able to really do since the divorce. Having a single, low income sucks. Having many bills, where everything keeps getting more expensive and I can’t get any allowances because “my income is high enough to afford all necessities”, well, it sucks!
I have been struggling with my mental health for years. And it was at an all time low since the OD attempt and divorce. My dear online friends helped me through a hard time by keeping me company, by playing Lego games together. And some of those friends helped me get to 100% in these games as my hands weren’t able to do all that the game required. I am currently working on my physical health. And having a good and stable mental health situation helps me be stronger and have more energy to get in a better physical shape. So I wondered what I could do to improve my mental health.
I tried finding love, but have been unsuccessful… And truth be told, the search didn’t make my mental health any better, not at all! So then I thought: what if I could finally do what I love a LOT? Collect Lego games, play those Lego games and feel good about that. Unfortunately they are quite expensive. But I found a few online stores that offer them pre-owned and I looked up a few games that I would love to add to my collection. And then I decided, I wil try to buy just one Lego game to add to my collection every month. If people wish to support me and I may be able to get two, then don’t mind if I do 😉… But my aim is 1 Lego game every month.
These games are often in a price range of 15-50 Euro’s, yes, even pre-owned… I took an average of 25, times 12, is 300 Euro’s. So I set that as my goal… I’d love it if people would be as passionate about this as I am and if they could support me. Any amount will greatly help!
I am still bargain hunting in order to get my food as cheap as I can. I also am economical with my heating and electricity. Saving every little bit that I can so I can afford both food and one Lego game every month. 😊 But if people would be so generous to support me, I may be able to get a wee bit more expensive Lego game, that I thought out of my reach?
Yes, I do feel a bit like a beggar……… But if I don’t put it out there, no one knows and if no one knows, even if they wanted to help, they would not know I needed it 😉.
Thank you for reading this all, if you would like to help me reach my 2022 gaming goal, please check the link below this post to my Ko-fi page. I have updated the goal, I have added images and all. And when this page is “live” (published so it had a permanent link), I will add this post to my page as well. I would also appreciate if you could share my post, my Ko-fi, to get more attention to it… 😊 Thank you 🤗 ♥ 😘
