I am 32 and I have Asperger's. I live with my parents.
I collect Care Bears and would like to rent a house for them to live in with me.
Although I have a job and could pay rent, I am struggling to save up a deposit. Because of my autism I'm unable to drive and I currently live 2 bus journeys away from my job (an hour of travelling each way). I would like to live nearer my work, and other amenities like shops and doctors.
I will probably never be able to buy a house, so renting would be my only option if I'm to leave home.
The house I have found to rent is £695 pcm, with a deposit of £1640, admin fees of £295, and removals for my Care Bears and other possessions, so I'm looking to raise £2500. This would leave me £565 for the removals and an initial food shop.
Anyone who donates can choose from the following gifts (see photos below):
1. A handmade toy puppy (takes half a day to make)
2. A handmade Care Bear felt ornament (take an hour each to make)
3. A handmade cross stitch Care Bear picture (depending on size can take up to a month to make)
I appreciate that it is rather cheeky to ask strangers to help me with a rental deposit, but my handmade gifts do take time to make and will hopefully be considered suitable recompense for any outlay. I can personalise designs for you if required.
Thank you for reading and thanks in advance for any donations :)
