His whole collectables collection!!!

by Anonymousreply 703/19/2013

If you the read the linked story or watch the accompanying video, you will see that the "collectibles collection" was not Precious Moments or Hummel figurines. One of the guys had a fairly extensive vintage toy collection that was part of what was stolen.

The friend who posted this on YouCaring.com probably should have explained the situation in more detail. The gist of it is that these two guys got married in Seattle and packed up all their belongings in a truck to move to California. When they went to get in the truck the next morning, they discovered that the vehicle had been stolen. It was recovered, however, all of their possessions were missing.

I hope that they find the bastard thieves and that the authorities prosecute the hell out of them.

I don't know if the OP was being facetious or not, but I wish someone would do this for my partner and I. Since we've been together I developed Chronic Fatigue Syndrome so bad that I am unable to work (despite 10 yrs. of college), he has been bi-polar since grad school, now it's gotten to the point where he needs ECT.

And he's had a bout with oral cancer (successfully overcome.) We've got four rescue dogs; more than we would have had if we knew I'd get hit with CFS out-of-the-blue, but we love them and need to do right by them.

I don't know if people realize how much health care costs for people on Medicaid. I pay $100 for my part B (doctor's visits, tests, etc.) plus a $25-$50 co-pay for those things, and $40 per month for part D (prescription coverage) and there are still co-pays as high as $80 for prescriptions.

$5000 would help a lot. $10,000 would change our lives. it would get bill collectors off our backs, and with the extra money i would re-start a website i ran that brought in a few hundred dollars extra a month-just enough to make ends meet, and my partner always had "the magic touch" for buying things to sell at a profit on eBay. Just no funds to do it now.

This isn't a all the life we expected or planned to be living in our 40's.

I wish the people in this story the best. I guess I just needed a place to vent. I wish my partner and I could get married, but we can't (even though we live in New York State and-ironically-I've been a gay rights activist since college) because at the state we're in financially we'd lose some of the meager benefits we need to survive.

Again, I wish that couple the best, but there are so many people who need help-not because of one terrible event-but, because of a slow sad spiral into medical debt and "the poor getting poorer." I bet a lot of the big $1000+ donors to gay causes have no idea how they could help actual gay people to stabilize and, despite their limitations, actually make a real difference by having the freedom from crushing debt to make a difference in their own communities.

I hope no one is offended by this post, I really do wish the couple featured get what they need. I'm just so tired of being in need myself. I post here semi-regularly, usually I actually use my name-but I can't take any blowback from this so I guess I'll just sign...

R36, go for it. You sound more deserving than these nitwits.

Sorry but you don't get to ask for your collectibles to be replaced. If it was so valuable why wasn't it insured? And you certainly don't get to ask for what you think it was worth rather than what you paid for things - which you know is always way less than any selling price.

This is pathetic. Who is stupid enough to put all their belongings including valuables and park them in a drive-away receptacle on the street? I'll bet there were all kinds of tell tale signs that they were moving.

Sorry for them but there's a reason for insurance.

Which isn't really what happened at all, but hey, whatever.

They packed a truck with all their possessions in order to move. When they went to drive the truck away the next morning, they discovered that it had been stolen.

So, really, it has nothing to do with them being tired and not wanting to take their possessions out of a car.

Is this the guy who had his madams Alexander collection stolen?

by Anonymousreply 5103/20/2013

R42 and people like him are the reason I'd never do this. I was always the kind of person to help anyone who needed it when I was still healthy and worked a full-time job, taught college part-time and was working on my Ph.d. (So that I could get a full-time teaching job-even though it didn't pay much at all.)

My partner, when he is able fixes computer problems for family and friends, doing thousands of dollars worth of work for free. But, of course they reciprocate in the way that friends and family do.

I'd never consider giving up my dogs. They are our children, and all came from horrible circumstances. Our oldest is in her mid-to-late teens. She's healthy, but needs care. She won't live forever-and when she dies I will be crushed-but, I will do everything I can to make her last months happy and pain free.

I'd be too embarrassed to ask for help on that website, my partner's depression is so bad after 15 years that we are trying to come up with the money to cover co-pays for tests, just so he can have ECT-a scary proposition. He loses his voice a lot and it worries me since he is a cancer survivor.

I just hate the dread feeling every day when the mail comes with bills and shut-off notices. Same with the phone ringing-bill collectors who want money we don't have for medical bills they already got 90% paid by Medicaid.

This past fall, I had to have a lumbar puncture to test my cerebrospinal fluid. The doctor screwed it up and I ended up with 7 jabs! All of them misses: a mess of blood, spinal fluid tissue, etc. I have been in excruciating pain ever since because they caused two discs to bulge/rupture.

My partner has a strange problem where he has a zero testosterone level in his body, an extremely dangerous situation. He needs pellets implanted 4 times a year at the cost (to us) of $200 a visit. Right now, we don't have it, we owe the clinic for back co-pays and the physical toll makes him so depressed he stays in bed almost all day.

Sounds too bad to be true? But, it's true. Lucky us.

But, you can see why I wouldn't want to put my name on this. I'm sure I'd get nasty comments, people not believing me and probably people making fun of us.

So, to R42 and everyone else who is indifferent to my situation. All I want to say is appreciate every single day you are healthy. Good health really makes anything in life possible. When you lose it-your horizons shrink so fast and so completely it takes your breath away. When you're in chronic pain (mental or physical) sometimes the hardest thing in the world is waking up in the morning and being yourself.

I have no ill will towards you or anyone else who will most certainly post cruel, snide remarks about our problems. Just remember, I'm not asking you for anything other than to be generous in your judgment of others. Things can go so wrong, so fast and it can happen to anyone.

r36, I can't help you with your health problems, and I'm sorry for you and your partner.

But if you haven't done so, I suggest you contact the nearest animal shelter of some size. Many of them now have food banks for pets and offer free or very low-cost pet food and supplies to people who are struggling but won't give up their pets. (It's not entirely altruistic -- it's cheaper to give away some stuff than to take in more animals.)

A good SPCA or shelter might also offer you the cheapest vet services possible.

Good luck.

What about their Prada? Was any of their Prada stolen? Mon Dieu!

by Anonymousreply 5803/20/2013

Thanks R57 That's a good suggestion. I hope people get the point that I wasn't necessarily looking for help. Reading the thread just made me think of the huge amounts of money that a whole different class of people donate to gay causes and thinking what a nice change it would be if, for one month, one week-even! They just reached out to actual gay people, who for various reasons, aren't celebrities, style makers...even employed.

I suppose I was just sort of venting at first, but then it did occur to me how much change could happen if gay people with money to donate just helped out other gay people.

Of course, that would preclude a red carpet, paparazzi and someone winning some award, all to sell tickets to pay for an even that cost tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of dollars.

Even if they donated those SWAG bags, people like us could maximize it by selling parts of it on eBay. It's just frustrating, a lot of people could help others tremendously with the money they probably spend on a single change of clothes.

R12 I agree. When I drove 2,000 miles to move to another state and had my car packed with all of my stuff, each night I that I stayed in a hotel to sleep I took everything important from the car to the hotel room because I didn't trust leaving the important stuff in the car overnight. Yes, it was a pain in the ass having to carry all the shit to the hotel room only to have to move it back to the car the next morning, but better safe than sorry.

by Anonymousreply 6603/20/2013

R36 I totally agree with what you're saying. I was a guest at a charity dinner recently with very rich people applauding themselves for donating close to a million dollars to an arts school program. All I could think, looking around at the dozens of waiters in the room, was how that money would totally change the lives of those waiters and how absurd the focus of "charity" can sometimes be. If I had the money I would send you money to alleviate your financial worries. I hope someone does and that you find relief. Don't give up hope that your fortunes can suddenly turn for the better. Love to you.

I agree with the poster upthread. Since when is it okay to financially pander to people online? Shit happens to all of us, eventually. It's incredibly tacky to just stick your hand out and ask for money. And I grew up dirt poor, so I understand the urge, but have some pride.

I could see doing some sort of event (get some friends to put on a drag show) or "job" (a car wash) to at least give back to those donating.

R36 - I am sorry for all that you and your partner are going through. And you are right. To have even basic health and financial stability is quite a luxury.

The world of charity and fund-raising and who decides what and who are priorities is bizarre when most realize (but few do anything about) the gut-wrenching need which exists the world over.

I do hope for something to break in your favor, and thank you for caring for your animals that much. Anyone with that kind of heart is bound to feel the slings and arrows of life more deeply than many.
