A New Course - Top Pick 5 stars*****

It has been said that sometimes, One must to do the very thing One most wants-not to do. That’s how I feel about this fundraising-asking-for-help kind of thing. But none the less, here I am and I’ll make the best of it, and I am so glad you found this.

I am asking whole heartedly for your generous assistance and I will present to you the situation that is my own little hell that I must deal with now. I am trusting… together we can transform this difficult, troublesome, depressing and stifling situation… into the Beautiful and complete and compelling and inspired future that will benefit many.

I will do what I can to promote the wonderful conclusion of my projects, I have never been one to be driven by money, though financially poor, I have been greatly blessed. And, I will let you in on my life a bit and try with sincerity to make your gift of support the most beautiful, fruitful and lasting gift of love and joy and honest goodwill that you can make.

Yes, we all know, there are many people around this world in need, there always will be and no amount of money will solve that today. But, right here and right now, your decision to help will make a tremendous difference to me, also to my family and community, neighborhood and the untold others that will be affected by your simple good deed here today.

Let me tell you a little about my main focus with this fund raising effort. As one of my projects, my Grandparents home that they had built in 1940 is in great need of repairs. They owned the house ‘till they died and the place had been mostly vacant and resting for years. The family wanted to sell but I just couldn’t let it go in such poor condition, this was the place of great childhood memories and good energy for all of us and I wanted to fix the place up - volunteering my own time and money to do all the repairs and make it a nice home again, out of respect for my grandparents and for my mother that grew up there and left her childhood self hand and foot prints, set in concrete. My Grandfather passed away shortly after retiring, 40 years with PG&E, the Central California utility, and no time to enjoy his retirement. My Grandmother lived there alone for many years after, until entering a care facility. Can I just walk away? No.

So, under my own renovation program, I have been working on the house on my days off, a couple of days a week buying materials and supplies and DIY’ing the work. To make a long story short, a loss of my job and no income while continuing to work on the house has left me in a financial disaster, my own debts exceed $14,000. and with no income and savings gone, this is overwhelming. I need a change fast., And I still need to complete the project, at least minimally, at $20,000. As it sits, it’s one of those run down looking places no one wants on their street. The neighbors will appreciate your gift and so will my family, I have been working on the home for over 8 years now and with old electrical, plumbing and asbestos floor tiles and lead paint, it is a project that needs to be done with care. It’s in no condition to sell or rent, I need a rescue squad, I really need your help right now to avert disaster and to set a new course.

It is not my wish to accept your generosity with out giving something back or paying forward somehow. For one, my goal is to create and post updates about how your support is helping, a sort of Nicole Curtis type renovation show online perhaps (but without the obnoxious parts). I will also mention, I have some classic muscle car projects in storage that are in lien now, future projects I hope to save. I need a job, put me to work, I have many skills. I am not on social media, no friends, no contacts of that sort, so for now I am counting on you to share this. Time is of the essence, I need this to take hold, I need this to fly, I need this to do well, there is much at stake. So, not only does your help save me from total financial disaster it also functions as a kick-starter to new endeavors and a new future, and I thank you very much for your participation, it’s so important.

I should say, I have no financial interest in the house, it is not a flip. It’s a family home that belongs to my mother now and with her $600- a month fixed income she can not pay for repairs or get a loan. With your help, our whole family will benefit. My thought is to airbnb it or rent it out at some point, maybe donor discounts for travelers in Ca., It's near i5. As is, I have no house of my own I either stay at this project site or with my mother, disabled, she appreciates the help.

So I ask you, Please Help - Financially support My work on This Project… and Share this, and Share this, and Share this!

Oh, by the way, I am taking care of a number of rescue cats so I will have no shortage of cat pics to share. Here we are in the kitchen with “GreyGrey” keeping warm on a cold evening. She took up residence while the house was vacant. Spay and Neuter please, is a message I promote to all who read this. Your participation also helps the animals, Thank you
