Help Ian and Sam Move to L.A.

Hey, everybody. I'd like to keep this as straight-forward as possible, and as heartfelt as I possibly can.

As some of you know, I've been offered a once in a lifetime opportunity: to become an employee at Nickelodeon Studios in Burbank, California, a position that not only broadens my career chances but also changes my life and, of course, Samantha's life. The job requires a re-location to Los Angeles, a move I've wanted to do for years but haven't been able to pull off on my own financially. 


Recently, with your help, Samantha and I moved to St. Louis, Missouri  in an attempt to finalize a job that didn't pan out, an outcome that plunged us both into a strange and depressing position; not knowing what the future holds. Things have changed, and thanks to some amazing circumstances, here we are looking at Los Angeles as our future home. Unfortunately, complicating matters is the proposition of breaking our lease, a move that alone costs about $2,000 USD, and a requirement to pay 60 days worth of rent, another 2k. And that's just before the costs of physically moving, something we need to do by the end of October. 


I'm reaching out to you to ask if there's anything you can give or donate to our journey and new life, I would very much appreciate it. (Full disclosure, I don't personally feel comfortable asking for donations from my friends and family, but without your help there's absolutely no way I can fufill this dream I've had since I was 7 years old). So if there's anything you feel you can contribute, my sincerest thanks and love your way. This is a journey that has a literal pot of gold at the end of it, and I can't thank you enough for whatever you may be able to help us with. Thanks again for taking the time to read, I hope to be greeting you all from our new adventure shortly. 

I'd like to add that for those contributors who are able to donate and are willing to share their contact information, I will be sending along a special personalized Rocko's Modern Life print your way as soon as we settle and can connect. Again, thank you.

- Ian
