I am potential. I am empathy. I am the power that will change lives.
I am a storyteller. For over 25 years that has taken the form of professional acting. In just the last handful of years I’ve realized my talent for writing. My day job currently involves a great deal of corporate, foundational and government grant writing. Great and lucrative grant writing is storytelling at its core. I am thrilled and honored that my original one woman show has been accepted into the primary lineup for the Cincinnati Fringe Festival this June. I have no fewer than 8 other writing projects I am actively working on including 2 fictional, 1 educational, 2 motivational and 3 keynote speak based corporate training themes. At the age of 46 I am proud of what I have accomplished and I am forever searching for ways to deepen my connection with this world, improve my understanding of myself and others. I’ve learned a lot of things the hard way which makes for great storytelling! It’s also made for a great deal of debt. I am laden down by past decisions and ongoing obligations – so much so that an opportunity to truly dedicate myself to my potential as a writer is simply out of the question. I need a year. A year to devote to the stories I so desperately want to share. I need that year to breathe easily. I need that year to wake up in a state of hope instead of a state of fear that I must then beat back into a place of optimism and strength. I’m worth this year of trust and support from you, a complete stranger. What I will be able to do in one year’s time will shape my and my family’s future. It will also shape the future of so many other women, parents, storytellers, leaders and seekers.
I am the primary breadwinner of my family and my husband’s mother, his sister and her two kids. I’m just not making enough and both their house and our house are in jeopardy of being foreclosed on.
By the numbers I need $25,000 to not wake up in fear every morning and continue to slowly but surely increase the amount of time I can dedicate to a stronger and impactful future. I need $50,000 to have 3 months of nothing but writing… and no fear every morning. I need $100,000 to have 1 year of writing, no fear every morning and a brand new future in place and ready to roll. Now, if those numbers barely make you blink then I need $350,000 to be free of debt and forever in yours.
I am a great student of karma and any gift you give would result in me giving back in whatever way I can. If there are any specific ways in which I can repay you or the universe, please share with me. If you’d like to updated on a regular basis regarding my growth and success it would be my pleasure to share my journey with you.
Any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to me and THANK YOU for your generosity.
