I posted a really quick link to this story earlier in the week but lacked the time to give it the space it deserved. Thank you to all who read about it and responded with help!
Here is the blog of mmpaints of Self Sustained Living, and here is the crowd funding page with a detailed description of her situation, the challenges before her, her business plan and the specifics necessary to launch her over the hump of a really bad situation. If you visit the page, you can see there has been an enthusiastic response and there is still a lot of room to lend a neighborly hand. We're all farther apart than the days of the old barn raisings, but thanks to the internet it's not too far anymore to help across the miles.
Thank you for any help you can give, and all encouragement! And thank you to all who already have expressed your support!
