My Goal of Becoming a Scenic Artist.

You may have been watching the progression of my career on Facebook. Maybe you've been my friend or family member along the way as well. Today I have to ask all of you for your help. After years of being a starving artist I have finally landed one of the greatest opportunities of my life. After interviews, portfolio reviews, and practical skills testing I have been chosen to join the United Scenic Artists Local 829. A very big deal for me and as it turns out, a very big deal for my bank account. I need to raise $1,800 to pay my initiation fees and dues so I can get my union card. I simply cannot do it alone. My artwork barely pays for my day to day expenses. You can donate a little or you could donate a lot. You can even donate anonymously. It is a secure and safe site that will hopefully help me reach my goal. If you've never done anything before to help support the arts this could be your opportunity to help out an artist directly. If you do plenty to support the arts this is your chance to put a face to the one that your support. I need your help. Actually, I'm begging for your help. Won't you please click the 'donate' button and follow the simple steps to help me achieve this lifelong dream?
