Raven Needs A Home

Hi, my name is Raven. I bought land out in Arizona to build an offgrid, sustainable homestead 6 years ago. For 5 years, my dear friend and I have lived outside while building what was to be our oasis in the desert. I live with an advanced stage health issue called Environmental Illness. My body is profoundly allergic to the world. All things chemical, mold, electromagnetic and most foods. I have other serious health imbalances due to toxic poisonings and being born with a rare blood disorder and liver disorder but theres no need to define them. The environmental illness is what forces me to live outside to breathe, able to work the land but not off of it, planting my own garden of organic safe foods and going without sufficient clothing and having no conventionally built house. This winter, my land was hit by a very devastating storm caving in the just repaired garden we rebuilt last year after a devastating dirt devil. It crushed the 4,000 sf organic garden tearing out tunnels, framing, netting and our trellis bed. It is hugely devastating.  On top of all of this, I am suffering the devastating loss of my only child, my daughter, the loss of Tracy's mother who was our only support, my best friend, Bella, my three dogs and more. My health is very challenged now. Im very weak. I've been without my thyroid medication for three tears. Our vehicle is down. I'm just devastated trying to build from dirt and ashes. What I need is help. I need to raise funds to buy soil and steer manure for the garden beds at about $350.00. $150.00 I need to raise funds to purchase my lost quails, 40 of them, that provide eggs. $100 for chickens for eggs, $400 for garden needs and straw to help finish my house. We also need food desperately. Metal to finish roofing. And a bit of money to help with fixing the van that hauls water. The amount you see was raised prior to for the twister that helped us immensely but with the last devastation and this new quarantine, we are devastated and need help. Thanks so much for reading. A very hurting, very tired but very grateful Raven
