Hi, my name is David. I'm from California. I spend most of my time trying to work to get food. I'm a diabetic and have high blood pressure. I really need money to help with food. My goal is to one day be able to go back to school.
My father was a Navy veteran on a ship in World War 2. His ship was bombed but he survived. My parents threw me out when I was a teenager and I lived on the streets. I am also a navy veteran like my father.
A few years ago I fell down and broke both my legs. Now I walk with a cane. But I don't let that stop me from working every day and trying to make ends meet.
Currently, I'm just trying to survive and get food, I need healthier better quality food due to my health. I am on limited income through disability so sometimes its tough.
In the long term, I'm interested in relocating to New Orleans, San Diego, or Texas because I hear there is work there in the ship yards. I have experience working on ships from when I was in the Navy.
Music makes me happy and eventually when I move into a bigger place I dream of having a music studio in my house. Music is my best addiction. I've been into music since I was 12 years old.
I'm raising money for arts & crafts so I can start my own buisness.
I'm raising money for back rent so I can hold onto my rent-controlled housing.
I'm raising money for a hospital bed so I can sleep safely and relieve my swelling.
