Save Will's Studio and Livelihood

During a very hard couple of years, Will Griffin was locked out of his studio/storage locker.  Its contents will be auctioned off if he can’t pay the back rent by January 1st.   As Will put it, the studio contains his entire life.  It is where he works to create beautiful costumes and props.  It contains his sewing machines, tools, photos of his deceased son, Carl, and his deceased love, Heidi, and just about everything else he owns.  

While mourning the loss of Carl, Will became ill with a second round of pneumonia and later suffered a third.  In the midst of all of this, his accordion was stolen.  Due to his mental and physical health and loss of his accordion, he became unable to earn the money to pay the rent on the studio. 

I don't think anyone ever gets over losing their son, but Will is feeling better and is ready to get back to life.  He needs to get into his studio do that.  If you can spare anything, please help Will keep his studio so that he can get back to work!  The goal is enough to pay accumulated rent of over $4600 and pay the rent a little while longer.  If you prefer to donate in another manner, please contact me or Will.
