Housing Crisis

I have been on the job market for approximately 18 months (since November of 2017) to supplement the income from my media production business, DBM Media.   I have been applying for 7-10 jobs a week for months, and have had 3 interviews that were very promising (two that went to second interviews) but none have panned out into an actual position.  To compound matters, I haven't had a significant production job since March. 

 I've been very lucky and grateful to have had some work doing performance videos for comics, which has kept food on the table and the lights on.  I've also been fortunate to have a few music performance jobs as well some lessons.  But, I have fallen behind on my rent ($1200 a month) and find myself in imminent danger of being evicted from my apartment, which also is my daughters' home 50% of the time.  I need $2500 to catch up my rent from last month and this month.  

It's super humbling and embarrassing to have to ask for help like this and it's important to me to be responsible, so I am pledging to repay all donations within one year.  If I am unable to repay within a year, I will pay you back twice what you gave me.  I'm planning on running this fundraiser until the end of the week, Friday, July 12th.  

If you can help, I'd greatly appreciate it.   Please know that I'm doing everything in my power and knowledge to fix this, and it's immensely frustrating that it's been so hard to find a job.
