Help Matt Get on the Road

Matt is my roommate.
And my co-writer.
And my director of photography.
And my best friend.31887948_1533413871580887_r.jpeg
Matt has paid my bills when I’ve been so busy creating that I couldn’t make a proper living. He’s helped me raise my kids for the past 4 years. He is the most supportive human being on the planet, at least of all the folks I’ve met. I don’t care to meet a million more people, so I reckon he’ll retain this title the rest of my life. 

But now Matt needs help. While visiting his family in Ohio, he was involved in a terrible accident.


He’s physically mostly okay, but his van is destroyed. And how he’s stuck up there, no car, no way home. All his kindness for others has left him in a situation where it’s hard to take care of his own emergency. 

He’s found a car he can get ASAP, but he doesn’t have the cash on hand. I don’t have money. I’m bad at money. All I have is a bunch of people who, for some reason, pay attention to me online. So I’m using those. I’ve never really used a service like this for myself, and I never will. But I have absolutely no shame in doing so for my friend. He is a good person, just fundamentally good, and I can’t stand the idea his generosity will be repaid with this stress. 

So I figure if a bunch of y’all throw in just a little, he can be back on the road home to where he belongs, and maybe for once he can be the one supported and helped through an emergency. 

He will hate me for doing this. He hates getting help. But that’s ok. He’s helped so many other folks at this point, he’ll just have to suffer through some good karma paying off.
