Help the Joe Mignano

Hi all,

My name is Stephen and i would like to talk to you about a dear friend of mine Joe Mignano, who needs help!

Yes that is him...  Some people know him as the "The Brutal One" or "Lord Bruticus",  but to me he's just Joe.

Joe is a fun loving person who LOVE Star Wars.  With his years being a Star Wars costumer and planning charity events across Southern California like a summer and a winter trip to a local orphanage called "Hillsides" for the last 3 years and so many more. 

Joe is also the founder and manatees HoloNet Audio Dramas and the App called Star Wars Podcast.

HoloNet Audio Dramas is a collection of narrated fan-written stories pertaining to the STAR WARS universe, with music and sound effects, and is not affiliated with Lucasfilm Ltd., or The Disney Corporation.

Why Joe Need Help?
Joe is in the Hospital in Huntington Beach, Ca. and will be transfer to a local VA Hospital.  He was admitted at 1am on 10/31/2016.  Joe has 2 jobs jest maintain ends meat.   Now that he is in the Hospital, he really needs our help. 

In Joe's own words:
"Still in the ER awaiting transfer via ambulance to the VA, to be admitted into a psych ward.  I posted something yesterday that I know scared a lot of people, and I am immensely sorry for that. v I did something very stupid to myself - suicide was not my intention, only to pass out for a while.  However, I also was at the point of not caring if I woke up or not. I would sooner die than be homeless again, and given what happened at my full time job, I didn't see myself as having any other choice.  The cops confiscated my firearms, and I'm now losing a lot of work. I can't survive without working, being alone.  I don't know what to do now, it's in God's hands. I will hopefully be released from the VA hospital in a few days.  When that happens, I will be in need of financial help, until I can get my feet on the ground again.  I have an amazing circle of friends.  Thank you very much for being concerned about me.  I may need to lean on you all in the weeks ahead."

How All Funds Will Be Used?
Any and all funds will be used to help pay for medical bills as well as rent.  This way it may act as a buffer until Joe can return to work.

I would like to thank everyone who took the time to read this and to help out my dear friend Joe.

Thank You!
