Four homeless people in the middle of a megacity cook their food using wood from a pallet.

I am disabled, and I've been homeless for nine years. I have cooked with rubbing-alcohol-burning stoves that I made from beverage cans.

For homeless people, rubbing alcohol is better than wood. This is the middle of a mega city, so rubbing alcohol is easier to find than wood. Compared to alcohol, wood is harder to light. The wood creates ashes. It's silly to start a wood fire for one cup of coffee, but it's fine for alcohol stoves.

I can make some stoves for them and show them how to make their own stoves. 

If you help me have food and medicine, then I can pay it forward.

This fundraising campaign is All-or-Nothing: if we reach our goal, then I will receive the pledged funds, but if we don't reach our goal, then nothing will happen.
