Follicles Unite: Rebuild the Beard

BASE FUNDING UPDATE:
The housing goal of 5k has been hit before the main event even aired, thanks to the same stubborn online friends and family that pushed me to put this page up in the first place. I am absolutely blown away by the love and support of the community.

GOING FORWARD INTO THE MAIN EVENT:
Any and all additional/overage of donations is going towards a new editing/production computer of my own, followed by film equipment (new camera, directional mic, etc.). 
I was asked by some of our community members to keep the page up until the coming weekend, so they can participate towards the new equipment as well, but I will be closing donations on Saturday, March 24th. 
You've all given me the funding needed to ensure I have a place to live, and therein a studio from which to produce my content and put on live shows once again. It's now up to me to get my nose to the grindstone and make the most of your investment by making the best quality content I can.
Thank you all, once again. I don't have the words to properly show my gratitude, but I hope I can demonstrate it properly through years of content to come, and transparency in my updates as I secure and sign for the new rental home (and the PC, camera, etc., pending the final total).

ROUGH VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:

Hello everyone;
So let me start this out by saying that I am not the man behind this. This whole thing is up here because I've been convinced to do it by some very loving and supportive members of our online community. I've been otherwise commited to facing this challenge alone. I'm sorry if this is a little long winded.

Circumstances on my end have been in complete chaos. Since releasing the original announcement about the loss of my studio, indoor sets, and my streaming capacity, I have also learned that I will soon be losing my home. This is to permit the family of the Ward in our care to receive such from her own, rather than from me, a strange barbarian dude who yells into a microphone for a living.

It gives me great joy to see this for them all, and the family unit strengthened and all others within it made happier through this outcome, but I need to move out to make room in the household as swiftly as possible. I am currently working with a deadline of June 1st, after which I hope to at least be able to rent a studio from which to work while I seek housing. I am fully prepared to go back to living on the streets or in a tent somewhere while I spend my days working on content in a studio. This won't be the first time that I've been a homeless vagabond, but hopefully it'll be the last.

Failure, as well as a handful of others, have banded together to try and help raise funds towards this, as I start over from scratch once again. All funds donated to this cause will be going towards the rental of a new studio or home from which to work and stream, the fuel and labour costs of the move to a new town somewhere else on the island or in the province, with any overage going towards the purchase of a computer of my own to work from, so I don't have to take the Mrs' with me when I go.

I will be traveling alone on this little quest, and hopefully in under a year, I will be able to move the Mrs in with me and maybe get started on our own family. In the meantime, she will be remaining with her family to provide assistance as a caregiver for her family member in need.

Each donation towards this cause is an investment in the continuation of my production, as well as my own livelihood. If you are able, and wanting, please consider making a donation.

Thank you, sincerely.
