Hello, all. Times have been rough. Though your money would without doubt be better spent helping those truly in need, it is my hope that you'll see my call for assistance and offer what you can. I'm currently struggling to cover rent, bills, and food, at times sacrificing one or both of the latter to maintain the former. I'm not good at asking for help, in fact I'm pretty terrible at it, so writing this feels wrong. I haven't much to offer, but I can promise a copy of my first chapbook of poetry, which should be ready by December, to anyone willing to donate $10 or more. For anyone wiling to donate $20 or more I'll offer both the chapbook and a poem written just for you. You can choose the subject and style. The $1000 goal before July 1st, if met, would ensure that, once my lease ends, I'll have somewhere to live. Any amount helps. Thank you so very much.
