Feeling a little desperate

Feeling a little desperate

From James Heyser

TODAY my Prius broke down. After having $6000 in gear stolen last fall, I had finally managed to scrape together a sound system. My first gig is in two weeks! But I'm stretched way too thin to handle this repair.

My car repair crisis and the fact that I was ripped off are intertwined...

Today, my Prius' "hybrid battery" (the expensive one) has given out.  I'm JUST TWO WEEKS out from my first sound gig since the theft.  Scraping together the gear I needed has stretched me way too thin to handle a major car repair.  The timing is horrible.

As a little back-story, and as you may already know, in the fall of last year I broke my foot while on the road, when I returned I left a van full of gear in front of my apartment on the street for several weeks while I was recuperating, and it was broken into.

The goal of my first Fundly was to be back where I was before the theft.  I felt a little sheepish about it, there are obviously so many people in need in the world.  So I wasn't very aggressive about it, and  it flopped (I raised $85), 

I managed to scrape together a sound system anyway, but that process has me stretched very thin, and now I have an expensive car repair. 

Please help!  Every DOLLAR helps.  I know I have a lot of friends that live payheck to paycheck (like I do!), please don't be shy about donating $5.  It will add up!
