More Info

After almost 16 years, I'm leaving Chicago...

Since finishing my last PhD exams in February, my next major step is dissertation research - in particular, a series of interviews with an amazing Christian community in Los Angeles, CA that has lots to teach the broader church.

But as you can imagine, this is going to be expensive, especially as I didn't get any grants/fellowships in this past Spring - making my task much harder.

Coupled with this, I also have to raise money for a cross country move - as yet to be determined - after my time in Los Angeles is done. This requires not only packing up everything and putting it in storage for several months, but also paying $$$ to get it from Chi-town to my new home.

Consequently, I'm asking all of you to help me raise $6610.00 to cover all these things, breaking down into:

Rent for my stay in Los Angeles -------------------------- $2100 

Groceries/Food in LA -------------------------------------  $1200

Transportation expenses in LA --------------------------- $500

3 months of storage for my Chicago stuff ---------------- $210

Moving expenses from Chicago to ??? ------------------ $2000

Fundly Fees ----------------------------------------------- $600

For a grand total of $6610.00

STRETCH GOALS!!!

Because response to this fundraiser has been so powerful I've made a stretch goal of $8k to pay for a deposit and some rent money in the new home. Please help me get this extra bit?

!!!FINAL STRETCH GOAL!!!

Wow. I put the stretch goal up yesterday and we already reached it - $8k DOLLARS - so now I'm going to talk about the final stretch goal, $11k.

When I leave Chicago, along with it will go virtually all of my most stable income - student jobs, pick-up work, etc... - that has always helped pay the bills. To help with this, and allow me to focus more on this crucial stage of my studies, I'm wanting to raise a final $3k to cover six months of rent money between November 2021 - April 2022 ($500 x 6 months) by which time I hope to have the first draft of my dissertation completed.

This is literally the biggest remaining financial worry I have before I leave Chicago, and knowing it is taken care of will greatly ease my mind. 

And that's it!
