Hello, my name is Mathew Foresta, and I'm a freelance journalist. I'm seeking help funding my upcoming reporting from Eastern Europe. I leave in 2-3 weeks. My work over the past few years has covered a variety of subjects including;

How the far-right uses the web's biggest retailers to sell merchandise.

A profile of homeless artist and photographer Bumdog Torres

Now, I wish to take my reporting skills to Eastern Europe. There are many stories to be covered there relating to the war and refugee crisis; foreign fighters, racism at the border faced by Black and Asain refugees, the increasing bombardment of civilian areas, possible war crimes, the course of continued resistance, protest in occupied areas, and the views of leftists within the area to name a few.

I hope to bring my in-depth reporting style to this work. In addition, I'm a photographer and will be using my camera at every opportunity. There are very few progressive journalists on the ground in-country, and I'm hoping with your help to change this. Hopefully, my reporting can benefit those most effected, inform the world, and find stories the mainstream media is missing.

I'm badly in need of funds. They will go towards;

-Winter clothing

-More durable electronics

-Body armor

-Documents

-Travel expenses

-Food and lodging

-Assorted supplies

Please help me and support my work. If you could I would be eternally grateful.

-Mathew Foresta
