Help Me Get Home

This fundraiser is happening because I'd like to live closer to my Dad.  I'm at the other side of the state for work.  He's 87 now, I'm 59.
I own the food truck and many of the accessories! I'm half way there!!

I'd keep plodding along buying pieces of my dream until I could jigsaw it into reality but we're getting older. 

YOU can make a big difference with a ripple effect that stretches to an entire community with your donation. 

This ripple includes a pay it forward so that no one ever leaves my truck hungry and working with the local homeless shelter & food pantry.  I can help, they said so.


For the last 12 years I've had a sunglass kiosk at the beach here in Maine giving me extensive customer service & experience running my own shop. 

I don't mind selling sunglasses by the seashore the last decade. In fact, I kind of love it but I'm running out of time and it'd be nice to be near each other. I could help him with the snow in the winter for example. 
It will still be seasonal work but I'd have a longer season doing this than sunglasses in Maine!

     My shop has gone through many changes in order to provide a higher quality of service and the largest selection in the state  
(always over 500 pair on display and hundreds more I can reach for to find that perfect pair).   I want to be the best I can be at everything that I do. There is always room for improvement.

The community is supportive everywhere I have turned.  Median income in my part of America is $17k so turning to my neighbors hasn't gained me the financial traction needed.             
Several businesses along the major route have told me that they are happy to let me set up for a very reasonable rate.
THIS is the Food Truck that I  bought:
              (^^Future home of The Blue Spruce Grill ^^)


I don't expect you to provide my fantasy of $25,000 for a truck all set to go twice the size of mine.  Just enough to get me going so I can do it myself.

I am asking for the bare minimum I need to get my feet under me.

This will be a great working environment when we get the air conditioner (already donated!) installed.  I've purchased  some of the freezers and refrigerators too.    Water system is up to code!

I need a grill,  hood with ANSI system, convection oven and a few other miscellaneous odds and ends. About $5-6k.
  
 I'm not asking for the world on a stick, just a shot at creating a dream.

I am in need of a good used towing vehicle.  I'm not sure what I'll find when the time comes. I'm thinking $5-6k.

I put the cart before the horse, so to speak and over estimated my old van, it's just been sold for scrap.

PLEASE donate today?

I need your help and I need it now.
Please share this with others?

I've been on my own since the age of 15.  This is the first time I've asked anyone for help.  Please make it successful?

Another season is finishing up and it's time for me to move. Again.

If you are planning a Christmas miracle for me, please can you do it for Hanukkah?

I need to know I have enough put aside before signing my lease for the Pier next year before the New Year. Thank you for your donations and your sharing my campaign.

I've been going to a few doctors this last month and they want me to close my sunglasses store. No problem with the food cart at all, it's just not possible for me to run the shop I have now so I'm going in the right direction with your help . Thank you for your shares, encouragement and contributions.
