I’m hoping to raise money to support Corbin Dallas, a friend and coworker, who is experiencing some financial hardship right now. Very recently, his car was impounded and just yesterday some of his belongings were stolen, and my goal is to help him get back on his feet and use the money raised to retrieve his car from impound this week.
Originally from Texas, Corbin Dallas moved out to Los Angeles in the summer of 2017 for a change of scenery but also to pursue his music career. With just a few belongings in tow and a car he was still paying off, he landed in Fontana and commuted to work everyday from there (quite a ways away from Larchmont). Because of the crazy commute, he barely made end’s meet but he always managed to do so and in November 2017, he was able to move closer to work with one of our mutual friends (and my old coworker) Francis Sullivan.
At the start of 2018, Corbin unfortunately got his car towed. Initially it was towed because it was parked where it shouldn’t be (street sweeping, oh LA!), but they decided to hold onto it for its plates being out of state and not having current CA registration. In the past week, Corbin’s backpack containing his iPad (which he uses during his music performances) was stolen from his friend’s car as well.
All of this is not a unique situation, and quite honestly is something I’ve heard from so many folks’ experience in their first year living here in Los Angeles. But I believe Los Angeles has more to offer Corbin and I don’t want him to give up on his dream here. I also believe that Corbin is an incredibly talented person, and on top of that is one the most positive, empathetic, and resilient people I’ve met and have come to know in the past year.
I’m running this GoFundMe on behalf of Corbin but also on behalf of all the coworkers-turned-friends he’s made here in Los Angeles who wish to help him and have overwhelmingly expressed as much to me. Please donate whatever you feel comfortable donating and help our friend Corby out!
If you are interested in hearing some of his music, or just snooping on him:
Soundcloud - "Can't Even Lie"
Thanks for reading this far, and please support this talented human being if you can!
There are a few rad reward levels that Corbin would be out of this world excited to execute, so don't be shy to select one :)
(He's an excellent singer folks!)
