This campaign is for my wife and I. We have been living in her grandparents house for over five years. He grandmother has dies recently and the house we are currently living in is going to be sold very soon. We did not prepare for this...but how could we? She had student loans she was paying off, a car, rent and medical bills. I have been sick and unable to work. I'm doing better and getting ready for a job, but I wont have it long enough to save up enough money to move in time.
We were depending on our taxes this year but they got lost or stolen, no one is sure. That would have been enough to move us. Now all we have is her minimum wage checks she gets from retail. We can barely survive on just that as it is, never mind trying to save for an apartment. I would never do this if I didn't have to. I hate handouts. I have always worked for my money. Things are tough, I had a rotting gall bladder that needed to be taken out. Had I known that doing that would be so costly, I would have said the hell with it. We're struggling, but if not for me, maybe my wife could get by.
Also, I am trying to make it in writing. I am a huge horror fan and want nothing more than to write/direct and produce low budget horror movies. I know you're probably asking "why low budget?" Well, I have taken a good look at the difference between low budget indie and Hollywood horror, and I have been noticing that the low budget indie has more passion. I want to be a part if the passion, I don't care about fame and fortune. I want to do this because I love it. I have been working on a character and you can check her out at www.patreon.com/ppdark. If you would prefer to donate to that I would appreciate it more than just the handouts from a funding site. I would prefer to know I was getting paid for the work I do and not just cause I need it.
