Looking For Happy Ness

$500 of $9,999 goal

Raised by 11 people in 44 months
Hi! I posted a little slide show to give you a glimpse of the characters I have grown to love over the years. These little guys visited my dreams years ago and gave me the inspiration to write a children's story for my children. I can not tell you how many times I have read and reread my stories to my children. They were a great audience. I have also garnered a few adults, family, friends, and associates. The common theme has been that I should publish my books for others to enjoy. Believe me I thought about it in the past, but life got in the way. Well, the other day I was cleaning up my office and I happened upon my little old friends. They begged me to reminisce. After flipping through a few pages I was encouraged to fulfill my dream of introducing them to the public. Fast forward. I am asking you to be apart of my journey and take these little guys from the dusty confines of my office to the broad expanses of the world. (My apologies for the vague attempt at drama). I have added a few characters from my other book to this slideshow so you can see my other works in progress.

Regards,


Paul

To all the supporters that donated. I have just finished my 1st book and I will be sending out signed copies to all that donated. FYI, I did not withdraw any of the funds donated, $135.00. What I would like to do is have these funds transferred to a child in need. His name is Seth and he also currently has a campaign here at gofundme. His campaign is Fund Seth. God has blessed me with healthy children and I feel that this is the right thing to do. As I said before, those that donated will be getting a copy of my "Looking For Happy Ness" book in the mail in about 3 to 4 weeks. Finally! I really appreciate all of you! PJ Gourley

Hello PJ, I am sorry I missed your gofundme project. But I am touched and impressed with your idea of donating the $135 to a child in need. Please find I have rounded that $135 up to $500. Take care, Buck.
