Penny Slusher Bridge to 2021

In the time of the pandemic everything has changed and challenges are a daily occurrence.

Now I find myself personally in a situation where I need to create a GoFundMe campaign.

I have a strong possibility for full-time employment at the beginning of 2021.
And I am continuing to create art in the meantime. 

However, I am at the end of my savings and I have exhausted every avenue to bring in immediate funds (including unemployment which never materialized, grants I applied for but did not get, etc)

I just need a "bridge" to get me to January and keep body and soul together.  Otherwise, things become dire.  I'm sorry for the bluntness.  But I suppose it's better to be transparent.

So I will leave this here and tell you how grateful I am for all of you.  I know I'm not the only one hurting.  I'm thinking about you and wishing you the very best.  I'm here for you as well.

With love,
