A Sanctuary Home campaign

Please help fund my long-time dream of living in a small sustainable home. I would eventually, like to help create a community of small and tiny homes on a land trust. This would feel tribal and include musicians, sound healers, energy healers, urban farmers, artists, etc...And it would include free healing for people suffering from post-trauma.

But for now, your donations help me to relocate to a small or tiny home. I am doing this for health reason and also to step outside of the matrix of overly-priced toxic rentals.

I live in a city with an extremely competitive rental housing market.

By donating to this campaign, you help a single woman move into a safe and affordable rental that feels like a home. It would be a happy conclusion to a housing journey that has lasted over two years.

Your help also changes the vibration of the housing market by opening up possibilities that inspire others.

The current cost to move into a studio (that rents for $750 to $800) is around $2,000. This does include hiring college kids with a truck to help me move.

I'm actively viewing potential new homes. The studio apartments are renting from $775 and upward. Some landlords ask for first, last, and deposit. Some landlords are asking tenants to earn three times the amount of rent. This might be possible in cities where job wages are higher than they are in Bellingham. I can come up with half the amount needed to relocate into a studio apt. So I'm still looking for donations to fund the other half.

I just updated my campaign as a dream or wish rather than an emergency. I keep seeing videos and other information on tiny homes and this reignites a dream within me.

I would like to start out renting a small home and your donations will give me $2,000 seed money. Then I will join with others in creating a tiny and small house community.

Thank you for helping me realize a dream. Blessings.

I haven't raised any money yet. I felt like tossing in the towel at one point. I was bullied by a man on social media who told me I wasn't deserving of anyone's help. It's ironic because it is that sort of attitude which helped me launch this campaign. And the reason I prefer to live in my own apartment.

Meanwhile, I got my image of a stone cottage going (a line I borrowed from the movie French Kiss).
