A Home Forever

 Im raising money to make a competitive bid on my first and hopefully forever home.

Competition for homes in Oregon after the fires is incredibly fierce, and even though I've bid on 5 times already (even had the high offer!) I can't compete with folks who can cover the closing costs.My credit is excellent, my VA loan will more than cover the houses I have been looking at, and my income is stable but moving costs and an ongoing engine replacement mean I do not have access to cash for up front costs, which makes all the difference in this market.I have little to offer in exchange except my vow to pay it forward, to remember who was kind to me when I needed you, and to name a part of the house (with certificate) for everyone who donates! 

And, of course, a place for any of you, whether you donate or not, to rest, find respite and friendship.
