DESPERATION IS OVER!

$10,750 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 180 people in 27 months
We are being evicted...I've had a 30 + year career from  an Artist to a Creative Director for (partial list of clients and employers) Lego, Stanford University, Mindscape, NASA, Zappa, Disney, PBS, ABC, MCA, IBM, California Academy of Sciences, Winterland/Bill Graham Presents. I've been In and Out of  hospital and rehab since 2000...I've had surgeries and recuperation starting with a quadruple bypass and insert to about 7 other heart related surgeries....
 
When our insurance ran out, I had to come home where Kyle (my Wife) took and takes care of me. Med Bills, forgetfulness, and the draining of our funds got us to this surprising point in our lives. Mortgage missed... It is now a Life or Death situation...I'm 64 and mostly bedridden. My Blind Luck ran out- A friend suggested I try this- I need help from friends-  We are going to need   50,000 to $100,000 ASAP -  We need to cover some kind of temp housing. We are there (here)...Temporary home that is....I no longer have any credit so we'll end up using cash. I'm  desperate now ...HAAALP! but slowly getting it together....You all have been great help and support to date-thanks...

Attention Friends, Family, and other,
Thank you for your exceptional emotional and financial generous support.
You have helped save me- seriously- The $ given has helped me pay for hospital/medical bills, our stay in a temp B&B, and a tad towards a home purchase. Within our low budget, we are able to purchase a home…It’s about an hour+ to the hospital and downtown but it’s pretty cool. If all goes well- and it should, it closes around the end of the month. Our real estate agent is beyond great. If you are moving to or around Austin- lemme know.
I honestly don’t know what we would do if it weren’t for you all… Thank you again…and once we’re all settled, it’ll be a pay it forward mission….


I send this “public” because when my desperation was beyond reason and I panicked- I had to send it public I Thank public. “I get by with a little help from my friends…”

An update of sorts- I've yet to be able to withdraw the generous support as of yet- old phone #' Vs. new phone number... but is resolvable...The reality of my update, however, is we found a home on the flood plain- border of- with major issues but fits our budget now..I have my dream fantasy hopes on one that would keep me near the hospital etc...and Ha-Ha- all I need is 20,000 to 50,000 more and then Kyle and I have a real home...I know none of us have any or much of any kind of "disposal income" but...well, worth a shot- I always say (not always)...

An update was requested by my computer so I'm not about to argue with a machine....Update is we are in temp housing (Airbnb) but caught in one of those "Check's in the mail" situations. We via a real estate agent found a cool house but apparently they want money for it....All Dates listed in description are irrelevant now..........Thanks, friends for all your generous support of our unfortunate situation....

Hoping for the best Wes!! You have touched so many lives, Lego Island always hits a special place in my heart when I think about it. I started playing when I was a young child around when it came out, and I still play it to this day!! :)
