Help Geoff Gould avoid homelessness
I am adding a PERK, considering how desperate things are.
As you can see, what has been donated has been so long that (as not enough people donated All At Once), that has been spent on survival.
**So** I am forced to sell a prized possession collection.
For a single donation of $700 (or more): **ALL** of my mint-condition Franklin Mint and Bradley Exchange "Wizard of Oz" collectable plates from the 1980s, all in their original mailer boxes.
**Also** plate display frames. And I will pay postage.
To see photos, go to the http://geoffgould.net/oz-perk.htm page I created for this campaign. Understandably, first come, first served.
For some time now, I have been staying with friends. While thankfully they are fellow animal lovers (and wildlife rehabilitators), and I assist caring for foster dogs, rearing baby animals from kittens, raccoons, skunks, and the occasional possum, the horrific lack of work, both acting and clerical, has caused a dire situation.
As one of them occasionally refers to it: "the Badger Apocalypse," meaning... my being homeless.
Gods knows what would happen to my loving cats Pooka and Sprite.
**Thankfully**, one oral agreement still stands.
If I can provide three thousand, four hundred dollars [$3400.00], they can refurbish their (currently junk-filled), stand-alone garage into a studio-loft of sorts in which I can stay (along with my two cats, which my friends do adore).
Also (apart from the Dead Calm that acting work has been of late), I have gotten back into writing, some of my scripts having been table-read with the group WeMakeMovies. org So far my scripts have very well received. Interest has also been expressed in having at least two of so-far my table-read short scripts produced. In the photo you can see me introducing one of my scripts about to be read, as well as sitting for the Audience Feedback afterwards (you can see my name up on the screen during my script "True Love Lies" being read).
If things continue to go well down That Road, my life would improve significantly, but that is in the distant future.
I can only pray that you, and my friends, both new and lifelong, offline and online (Facebook, Twitter, et al), may be able to assist at this rather desperate hour.
Heck, if every one of "just" my close to thireen thousandTwitter Followers and/or Facebook friends alone donated five to ten dollars [$5.00-10.00] each, the foregoing of one or two Starbucks drinks, I would be absolutely rescued, even if only those who actually see the Tweets/FB posts about this urgent request, and come to this page. If done all at once, anyway.
Thank you all! <3
