After our bikes got stolen a few nights ago, we are only roughly $43 dollars from replacing them.
Which is pretty awesome. I made a post pretty much explaining what happened, and a donate link since people were more sympathetic than I expected, and a lot of you really came through.
We raised $114 on that donate link I placed on my page, after PayPal’s fees, which is fucking amazing. We originally felt so damn lost and heartbroken and that pretty much made us feel a world better, and more like this was merely temporary, and that we will get our bikes back.
With that money plus the Jeffrey Campbell shoes I’m selling on ebay going for $76 so far, we are getting closer and closer.
Anyway, I figured the $114 is as much as we’re gonna get and I’m MORE than grateful for it, seriously. But I’m making this post in case anyone willing to help didn’t see the first, because I have no idea where the last $43 is gonna come from. I sold clothes and everything else I could spare, lol. So, if you are interested the donate link is at the top left of my page.
Thanks again to anyone who gave any amount, I know this isn’t the neediest of caused and I didn’t expect anyone to give anything, so you guys amazed/touched the shit out of us.
So our bikes were stolen tonight.
Um, honestly, I don’t even know how to emote right now.
We left them double locked for about 5 minutes to dart into a store, came back, and they were both gone, with both locks. This is in midtown NYC. The most chilling part was that we were definitely being watched, because we were gone for such a short time. They literally had just been locked up.
I’m putting up a donate link because we worked out ASSES off and saved to get them after wanting bikes for well over a year.
Malika and I don’t really have enough to spare to buy new bikes, but we would like to replace them at least before the summer is out—really and truly we were supposed to go biking on her birthday in early July.
I know there’s way better shit to donate to, but at this point we have nothing to lose. It’s open-ended. I would even appreciate a penny.
Who would fucking steal bikes from two carefree black girls in midtown fucking NYC?
Ugh, anyway, if you feel so inclined, please signal boost.
