A Disappointing Harvest

The royalty harvest was disappointing this season. As of 16 Sept. it is a close call whether we will make October's rent. Thanks to the many donors who raises the nearly $2000 shown this spring. But it is gone and we are still in rent-crunchy Austin.

Steady income: $770 and $350 SNAP. Rent: $770, Misc. landlord charges including water and sewer: $70, Electric: $88, Internet: $26, Mobiles $14, bed care supplies and misc. $200.

I am bed bound since I was septic 6 years ago. We cannot find a way to trade down in the Austin housing market or to move me and my hospital bed if we could. I am completely dependent on my spouse for care and the only means of transportation is a bicycle. My spouse is looking for part time work. We obviously need approximately $300/mo, more than we have to live and stay together at the bare minimum.

We also need in-kind contributions which I can explain in more detail on our Facebook group.  But these include things like paper towels, plastic shopping bags for waste disposal, 1/2 gal juice bottle for liquid waste holding, no-rinse body wash, wound care supplies, clean old sheets, towels, and rags, latex-free gloves (medium), and other sickroom supplies.

1) This fund will benefit Laurence Eighner Hexamer and his husband Cliff Hexamer. No other beneficiaries are implied.

2) Funds will deposited in the joint personal checking account of the beneficiaries named above.

3) Funds will be transferred from gofundme on a daily or weekly basis by electronic transfer to the account mentioned above.
