Starlisa needs a Vehicle!

Raised by 23 people in 8 months

     Update 10/01  Happy October, everyone!  I now have the vehicle...  and just set up the insurance for it.  Next step is registering it tomorrow, and then if enough comes in donations I will get the car winterized with new tires.  Thank you again for your help!  
     OH.. and I hope you don't mind, I gave $100 of the donations to a dear friend in town to get oil change and wipers for her old car.  As a single woman my age, she works so hard, at a minimum wage job, and it is barely enough for rent.  Her son has been injured and has had surgery and cannot work.  If there is more left over after the car is taken care of I will pass some on to her.  Her name is Cheryl, and she has a heart of gold and always trying to help others.

     Update:  One of the reasons having  working vehicle is so important for me is so I can wander the hills and valleys on occasion, finding beauty to come back and share with those who cannot get out there.  This video I created last year has many of my photos of favorite places around Mount Adams in southern Washington, combined with peaceful music.  Enjoy!

Hey folks! Usually i am trying to find help for others, but this time I am reaching out for myself. Recently homeless, but with an apartment in the works, my new used 1998 suburu now has a blown head gasket. This car had just replaced my 1996 Nisson PU that died as i was moving out! Sigh....
the mechanic's assistant has a similar suburu with a head gasket and clutch recently replaced along with other fixit projects, for sale at reasonable price.
This is where I come to you for help. Much of my time in recent years has been running volunteer fire pages and sharing my photography to bring smiles to your hearts. If anyone finds themselves in a position to help, this is a good place to start!
Thank you in advance with all my heart!!

If you would like to help through Paypal which is most direct, go to my photo web blog at 


and look in the sidebar for a Tip Jar half way down.

ALSO I now have a PopMoney account for those who like to transfer from bank acount to bank account.  They only take a small percentage, much better than GofundMe.

To everyone that has helped me to get this car I’m asking help again to share my new campaign for fixing the car.


I know that’s a lot to ask, but I don’t know who else to turn to. If you could even just help by sharing the new campaign it would be greatly appreciated

First, thanks again to everyone who helped me get my car! I can’t begin to tell you how much you change my life. Now I’ve had a little bit of setback that I’m praying is just small that I won’t know for sure till probably Tuesday. I hit some ice in a shady spot, spun around And the rear of the car smacked into the snowbank in a shallow ditch. I thought for a moment I would be able to climb back out but then the car started to tip onto it side. I was being watched over it didn’t go all the way over. I was able to climb out through the window with the help of some wonderful people that stopped by. Currently my car is in the impound yard and several people that were there said it look like I would be able to drive it again. However now I have to pay about $500 to get it out of the yard after the New Year’s. I am doing OK personally other than being somewhat rattled and lots of general aches. And a headache. I have been so concerned about getting help for other people who are struggling but someone requested that I present a GoFundMe so they could help with this situation.
Here’s the thing, I’m looking at it like I’m getting all the bad luck out of the way for 2017, so I can start 2018 with lots of good Car-ma.
I was able to climb out of that open window on the driver side, with nothing but a few bruises and sore muscles in a bit of a panic attack that came on later

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year ❤️ Thank you again for your help! I now have a working car that handles well on the snow and ice, and have been able to get an apartment. Life is looking up, now I am doing my best to help others in need.
A really important fundraiser happening now is for my young sister- friend whose daughter is battling Osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. Their cars both broke down, They have to travel 140 mile round-trip three or four times a week for chemo. Here is the link for anyone willing to help out, by sharing or donating. https://www.gofundme.com/a-car-for-bambi

This Aurora image is one I took in 2013 over Mount Adams, with some of the most unusual clouds! The yellow light is actually the lights of Yakima in the distance.
I just ordered this as an 8x12" aluminum print, with a float mount hanger and glossy hard finish that will last for generations. This will be for sale with others at the Glenwood Fall Bazaar coming up Oct. 14, 217, in Glenwood Washington at the Glenwood School from 9am-3pm. Come on by!
Meanwhile, thank you again for your donations, keep on sharing the campaign, we are almost there!

You folks who donated $250-$500 can talk to me about ordering a metal print like this at my cost, no markup.

Folks who donated $100-$249 can get a metal print for 80% off the usual prices.

Folks who donated $50-$99 can order a print for 60% off.
