Hello everyone my name is Michelle and I live in San Francisco Ca. My husband and I have become homeless this past year and simce then one bad thing after another has happen. The only thing that keeps me strong and gives me a bit of a release is when I am making art. I paint pictures , make wire jewelry , also I write poetry and lyrics. I never released that thru my art it may be possible to help us to get out of this hole that we are in now, until a friend of mine told me that my work was excellent and I should sell it. I never would have imagined that I made anything that anyone would want. But sure enough I took s few things out to the side walk and people bought my work. Here is where my fundraising idea comes in. I thought about asking for help with money for a place to live but that is far too much and it does not provide any type of help for the future months rent. I am asking for help in order to get myself a business license and much more better quality supplies and to be able to have proper storage containers and boxes for displaying them. I will also need to get a little table to set up each day. Not only will this help me with an income which right now it is hard for me to go to a job and leave my husband because he has been recently diagnosed with diabetes and is starting to lose his eye sight and some mobility. I really need that little extra boost to help me take off. living here in SF there is so much opportunity for selling street arts and crafts, but with out a business license I will rack up fines. Also with out better quality products and supplies I will not be able to make an adequate living but by seeing the people who do make a living selling art I definitely know what I need to be in competition with the other competitors. I would be truly gracious for any one who helps my cause.
