The ones I will shame will be the ones that make more than $698 a month and are paying 2/3 or less of their income on expenses.

Because after paying my rent this month I have $489.00

If by the turn of a new day tonight at midnight pacific Mortifyd has not received commitments into paypal for all of his expenses I will use what money I have left this month to make sure he has the $600.00 he needs.

For some of you this would require no more sacrifice than not getting starbucks. I am willing to eat beans all month so he can get home because I know he needs it.

But he lacks the $600.00 in gas/motel money he needs to get from Astoria, Oregon to Louisiana.

We Kossacks can help by getting him the money he needs. He has been ill of late and is living in a boat on the Northwest Pacific Coast. The cold moisture and wind there are too cold for him to stay. He is in need of the social bonding he can not get on a boat with less than ten square feet of interior floor space.

His mental state is capricious when the weather leaves him feeling isolated so it will be a great help to his well being to get somewhere warm and stable.

mortifyd@gmail.com at paypal will get him what he needs.

6:43 PM PT: Looks like at this point you guys came through. At 6:45 pm pacific we have $530.00 with only $70 more to come up with.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
