Homeless for 3 months - My True Story - My 1st Zine [Jun. 29th, 2005|02:08 pm]

Greetings All!

I have finally finished transcribing my handwritten journal into a zine about me being homeless in the Fall of 2003. It's all the good, the bad, and the ugly as it happened. 120+ pages, 1/4 size. Signed

Excerpt:

...I see that being homeless, being dirty, not having proper bathroom facilities, not having a warm secure place to sleep…it is very dehumanizing. I felt ashamed and prayed that I wouldn’t run into anyone I knew. I had no desire to smile or be friendly, like I normally am. It is a very lonely, isolating experience. You feel like you have no dignity and that you are less than human. If this could happen to me, and I will get out of this....Imagine what the people, with no employable skills, who have been homeless for months or years....Imagine what life is like for them?..."

I now have a need/desire/want to help others with my crafting. To that end, $3 of every zine sale will go to sponsoring one woman for a year at this organization, Women for Women International.

I will post on my journal the progress of sponsorship and will post any letters I send her or she sends me.

PWYC does indeed equal pay what you can.

if you do offer that 2nd at a reduced rate, i'd be interested in taking you up on that and sending one to a friend.

I don't think that there is any way to set that up in Esty.com so, e-mail me when you are ready to purchase and we can make arrangements.
