Today I am painting a neighbor’s house for some cash. Tomorrow I’ll be weeding another neighbor’s garden. This is how I’ve been raising money while I prepare for the “Tour” part of my Exile to kick off (Aug 18th). It’s therapeutic putting my body to work at these tasks, though I would much rather be filming and editing videos with a liberty message. I’m making the best of this time though, and I’m finding that making connections with neighbors and providing services for them is rewarding in a different–almost spiritual–way.
Even if I work this way every day for the next 2 weeks, I still won’t be totally prepared for Exile. I’ll need some money for Greyhound tickets, meals, and crash-spaces, as well as the ever-important livestreaming services I’ll be using to document the journey. Some supporters of mine have chosen to donate to help me cover these costs. You can too! I’m already 43% of the way to completing my goal of raising $1,000 to begin the tour.
