Please Help Me Achieve An Early Retirement

Hello. This is a social experiment to see if I can be blessed with the generosity of empathy and sympathy from others. I created a gofundme post for an early retirement with a goal of 1 million dollars. I figured, if I sit on my laurels, that’s enough to last 10 years. More importantly, it will give me some breathing room. I will be able to take a year to completely decompress from the 9-5 grind and work on improving myself with diet, exercise and mental health.

Now I know there are plenty of people far worse off than me and are better deserving of some financial relief. That being said, I only make enough to scrape by and am stuck in this perpetual cycle of mediocrity that will guarantee that, if nothing changes, I’ll basically be stuck in this cycle past my 60’s. And I’ve been working since I turned 18 without any real breaks in between.

So here we are. I’m 45 with a bleak future of continued mediocrity . I would love it if I could at least reach 10% of my goal, which would be $100K. That would at least give me a year of financial freedom to pursue a career change, possibly in some creative venues. So if I could get a million people to view this video and they donate $1 each that would be amazing. If only 100,000 want to donate $1 I would still be so grateful.
