Aggressive reminder to never shame people for asking for help.
And PLEASE stop calling asking for help/assistance "e-begging".
Frankly, it's gotten to the point where it just carries negative connotations and does nothing but make the person asking for help feeling ashamed for asking for help.
You can either give or mind your damn business.
It still makes me super upset seeing people be afraid or downright ashamed for asking for help
It's OK to ask for help
It's OK to need help
It's OK to receive help
especially if it's dependent on your fucking survival.
personally, if it wasn't for the dozens of strangers that helped me over the years, Idk where I would be, even more so now

@melaninpony mutual aid is where it’s at. I find all of the fund raising done via social media to be a completely alternative economics. People have helped pay my rent when I was sick. I have bought school books, helped pay tuition, and bought groceries for people. It’s radical as fuck!!
