Time for a Gypsy Wagon

Donation protected
During my entire life of 63 years I have been drawn to the romance of the Gypsy.  Every Halloween costume in my youth was based on my young view of the Gypsy Culture.  I was drawn to the freedom they represented to me.  In my older years I have learned not so much about the romance, but rather about the truth of their history, beginning from earlier times to now.  I have learned of the spirit of this family of tribes, and the hardships and horror  and discriminations they have faced.

In recent years, I have also, along with my life
partner, John, embarked on a mission to educate our youth about our past.  Currently we travel with a chuckwagon and teach about the years of the cattle drives.  I would like to add a new diminsion to this education, and build a gypsy wagon to also take with, so that I can educate about the mysterious culture of Gypsy that we really know so little about.

Please help me to build this wagon, I have builders, I have plans and I have a small amount of money, but to accomplish this I need assistance.  Will you help?

I will post constant updates during this time, not only of the wagons progress, but of stories of the Gypsy and Traveler culture.  I hope that you and I will enjoy this trip into our past together.

Thank you so much for your consderation and possible assistance.  Please share this with your friends, and never feel obligated.

Sincerly and with Gratitude
