URGENT: Begging for money for housing
I need about $470, so I can stay at a place nearby for two weeks or so. I cannot stay at the group housing program I am in, because they are closing down because of the coronavirus that is going around. I found a place that is $450 for 2 weeks, and I need to get money together for me to rent said place. The place I am looking at is a mixed dorm, but it is the cheapest I can find right now.
But if I do get like $1,500 before the end of the day today (EST), then I will be able to afford a hotel room.
Please help me out:

[Update] G Suite limiting access to less secure apps starting October 30, 2019
The bastards HATE people using something like thunderbird, because then you don't have to log into goog with your web browser and they have a harder time tracking the shit out of you.
They already make it hard to find the 'Allow less secure apps' for individuals and it takes about 4 clicks or so to do it -- if you can find the damn setting.
Next they'll turn off the setting for individuals.

1. That DRM systems don't work
