Wouldn’t it be nice to get straight to the lemonade and bypass the lemons life is handing out? We’re going to attempt to take our friend’s lemons and make them into a big pitcher of ice cold lemonade. Meet Chris: he’s a great guy, works hard as a stone mason, is super creative: www.etsy.com/shop/artfagdirtbug, has a sharp wit and is a good friend; good enough that we decided to start a campaign to send him on vacation. Life has not just been handing him lemons but has been gunning them at him like fast balls lately. I’m not sure how much detail you need of his hard knocks to want to donate to the cause -- we’re not sure his dirty laundry needs to be aired in a public forum. There’s his failed marriage that’s eating him up, working in a trade that this economy reduced to few jobs and long stretches between them, supporting his friends (roommates) and covering the rent and bills when no one else had the cash. The last couple years have been a real mess and the man needs a break. He didn’t ask us to do this for him. In fact he hasn’t asked for help once. That’s the kind of guy he is… Here’s what we’re trying to do for him: raise enough money to pay his rent, get him a passport, buy a roundtrip plane ticket and get him to Costa Rica with money in his pocket for beer. There’s a good friend there who will drive him around, lodge him at no cost and make sure he’s fed. We’re asking you to make any donation you can to help this happen -- the man deserves a break.
