September 2, 2019 If you continue to help with this fundraising effort. I in turn will use said funds to bless others that are having a tough time. i discovered a guy laying on concrete yesterday at a park. it hurt that I had no wiggle room with my own funds to help him in any way. going to try and locate him this morning to bring hims some fruit. please consider helping thanks!
 November 1, 2018 I have achieved the goal of getting an apartment. I moved in 11.6.2018. I still owe the campground 1k, my van is in terrible shape. I hope to raise enough to get a reliable car that can fit in my apartment garage. Then i wish to resurrect Red Dragon Tv. I need a new high end computer and several other items to make it happen. My wardrobe is still very much looking like i live on the streets. Thank you to all who supported me. AJ Below is original fundraiser.... MADISON, WI I am a 54-year-old Marine Corps Veteran with a Service Connected Disability. I have been homeless for four years and do not have any family. From November of 2017 to April 2018,  I  lived in my van for six months. Spending winter in my was extremely difficult. I now live in a 10x7 feet camper. My two dogs live with me. A cell phone is my source of communication. I want to improve my quality of life, and that is why I hope you would consider helping me through my Rising Up campaign. My primary goals are to rise up, get permanent  housing, and fix my van which needs a transmission. I also want to resurrect my streaming broadcast studio called Red Dragon TV ( https://t.co/kGWzTVqE0m ‌). Although I lost track of 8.2 million live viewers, I know I can rebuild my audience and studio again. Red Dragon TV  was an Internet television broadcasting station that provided a highway for independent talent to be seen around the world. I thought of selling some of my music to make money, but I need a stable place to live to make that happen. Music is therapeutic for me; performing it helps me cope with PTSD.  https://t.co/k8cwdf0IlK I would love to use my musical talents to heal others who have faced extreme challenges, too.  I located a house where I could get a new start by having roomates which would help to bring in income to help with expenses. Once I get on my feet, I will help other veterans to rise up. I have not found a place yet. If I go over the amount needed to meet my goals, remaining funds would be used to help other veterans who need support. I appreciate any donations that can be made to help me. Spreading the word is appreciated. In the past, I was contacted by scammers who wanted me to pay to promote my campaign. With your help, I can properly get the word out this time. Donations of any amount will allow me to get closer to reaching goals. Wolf Howl Vlog Updates I will be doing regular updates here:  Wolf Howl Vlog ‌ Phase 1 To get a cheaper, seasonal campsite. (Still need $675.00) Phase 2 Try to purchase a used mobile home at the seasonal campsite. Phase 3 Get a 4 wheel drive pick up truck for winter. Phase 4 Get a 4 wheel drive pick up for Wisconsin winter. Phase 5 Find an affordable place to live. Phase 6 Resurrect Red Dragon TV. Focus will be on veterans and non veterans to help them rise up and obtain housing!
