Assist My Dear Professional Work

Dear Friends,

Once again, I am back raising money

Many people gave money to the movie-making fund I had on Kickstarter  several years ago.

Then two years ago, I raised money to go to a communication conference where I presented a workshop about how this opportunity to make a movie using Facilitated Communication  had changed my life. It was titled 'Reaching Up Through the Keyboard to a Better Life.'

At that conference I was so fortunate to meet a person who I feel has the potential to change my life.

Angie Sylas had an epiphany when she saw the movie Wretches and Jabberers  and shifted her focus to becoming a Communication and Body Support Trainer in addition to her other roles and credentials.

When I first saw Angie at the conference I knew I needed to know her more. She met my gaze and came over and introduced herself and we have been in communication ever since.

I am honored that she now uses my movie ‘I am in here; a view of my daily life with suggestions for improvements from my intelligent mind.’  to inspire others to think outside the box when it comes to movement challenges and language.

I want to raise money to bring Angie here to Vermont so she can do an assessment of my communication support needs and make suggestions on how to broaden my communication opportunities throughout my environment and life. I am still in need of more people who can support my communication.

I want to think that soon I am going to type every day both at home and out in the world. Then I can shed the happy-go-lucky facade I use daily as an alternative to true communication and get my true thoughts on life out into the world more often than 8 hours a week.

I think having Angie Sylas here for a week would really inspire some change in my life.

Please consider donating to this dream.

I have great prizes. 

Fondly

Mark

My Dear Supporters,

I am happy to share with all of you that my work week with Angie Sylas was a complete success.

I was typing almost independently soon after she arrived.

I got to share with her the daily struggles with having access to communication.

I was able to be more myself during this week.

I am so happy to have had this amazing week with Angie.

Joy was so with us because I got to officiate Emily's wedding at the end of that week.

Fun work.

I could not have had this week without your support. Thank you, dear friends.

Fondly

Dear Friends and Supporters,

On a terrific roll we have been on with this campaign and it is soon coming to a close.

I am getting so excited to have Angie Sylas in Vermont next month.

I would love it if any of you could give a note of really sweet words to me and 10 more dollars to bridge the gap to my goal.

Fondly,

A great guy named Mark
