Zack Grozny’s Laptop Replacement Fund

Update posted by Isak Grozny On Jan 13, 2016

So, due to my parents continuing to be unaccepting of my transition and unwilling to believe that I am too disabled to work (or ill in the first place) and some admittedly snotty attitude from me, I am no longer receiving any kind of monthly income (not, uh, that my parents were sending me more than a token amount of money in the first place). That means I can't get a computer even with a financing plan, because, well, I can't pay off a computer if I'm getting no guaranteed income at all.

I am not on disability and it's doubtful the German government will grant me disability, though I'm currently suing them to argue that they should (it's been well over a year since my first hearing and before that, I waited months to be granted a hearing, so my hopes are not high).

My current laptop is still holding together, but that's not going to last (we have to take it apart regularly to make it work again) and I only got EUR 635 from this campaign, after GGF and PayPal fees. That's not enough for a computer that can be used for art, reasonably, and it's not enough for a computer that I'd be happy with. It's a shit situation.

I'm going to be blunt: I need money to get a decent laptop so I can have some prospects in life that are not "work a menial job the disability services deem 'appropriate' for my level of disability" and I can't pursue art without a computer capable of running art programs without choking. Please, if you can, help out.

I was in the same boat without a laptop last summer. It sucks SO bad. I know it's not much but I hope you reach your goal. - tumblr user debthaver
