I am starting this campaign to help my friends and "Panamanian family," Steve, Ellen, and Pryce Bailey. While many of you may know them from their previous home in Birmingham, Alabama, I met them while on a relocation tour to Panama where they shared their expertise with myself and my tour mates. The information they enthusiastically shared and the friendship that developed helped me decide that I would be a good fit for Panama and I am now living my dream as an expat here.

Since becoming unexpectedly unemployed, Steve and Ellen are now in a situation to start their own relocation business where they can continue to share their obvious passion, abundant knowledge, and hilarious, personal anecdotes to facilitate a smooth transition by those who will benefit from their success. After sharing their confidence about their desire and their concerns about the lack of finances, we decided that many of you will be willing to help, literally, pay them back and boost them forward so that others may benefit from their experience, expertise, and encouragement.

Also, by casting a wider net, more people can contribute, more money can be raised and the financial impact is less per donor. Remember, as Steve said, you eat an elephant one bite at a time! We can reach this goal by donating 5, 10, or 20 dollars!

Obviously the money will be used for startup expenses: website and domain names, corporation setup, attorneys, materials, marketing, and other business expenses. Because they have been surviving off of their savings for over 5 months, some will be used to help with their living expenses as they are, honestly, in dire financial need.

They also see this as an opportunity to continue Pryce's education by having him involved in the developmental process. Their long-term desire is to help Pryce learn to be able to work wherever he is and not to be tied down in a 9 to 5 job. As their dream unfolds, they envision providing jobs for many of their Panamanian friends that they have come to love.

Let's all come together and pay it forward so that they can help others realize their dreams like they have done for so many of us already! Additionally, we would appreciate it if you could share this with others who are so inclined to donate and help meet this goal!
