I have lived in the same century old farmhouse for 13 years. As a single dad I raised my kids here and it has been a wonderful home. But now medical bills have backed up and because I've fallen behind in rent my landlords have asked me to move out.
I've been a giver my whole life - whether working for a cause or donating my time to a worthy non-profit - and have rarely asked for help but the time has come.
I have 2 primary goals here:
- raise enough to pay off my medical bills
- and fund a vehicle (I am looking for an older and well running pickup) to help me move my things and myself to wherever it is I land.
Beyond that... those that know me know I am a writer, a photographer and a passionate advocate for nature dedicated to protecting it from harm. I'd love to be able to purchase a laptop and hit the road, traveling to places like the Bears' Ears Monument in Utah to photographically share the land's beauty and cover the social, cultural and political issues involved.
If I can reach that level of funding it will enable me to travel and either share my discoveries via blog or perhaps get published (and I have been published both as writer and photographer).
