Many of you know I am moving in mid-June to WA state to live with my partner. A 3,000 mile move is very expensive even when making as many cutbacks as possible, and we are asking people to help us raise money for the cross-country journey. More

Hi! You may know me as CM, Colleen, or Nebulosus. I am an artist who has been in a long-distance relationship for over three years. My partner and I have decided to close the distance, and I will be moving to Washington state in mid-June to live with him I look forward to settling down for awhile and furthering my Fine Arts degree in the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Moving 3,000 miles is expensive, even though we are making as many cutbacks, and taking advantage of as many budget options, as possible. Thus, we are asking for help to raise money for some of these expenses. My income is extremely low right now since I have been spending most of my time packing and preparing for the move. I have been doing everything I can to raise money to fund this big move, including tag sales, ebay auctions of various things, Craigslist, etc. I'll be selling my car, too. I am trying to downsize as much as possible to cut down on the amount I have to move, in order to save money on expenses as well.

Your donations will help with any of the following costs:

  • Plane fare for a one-way ticket for my partner to fly out to my current location
  • Shipping expenses - some of my things are being shipped. Books, music & movies are being shipped via USPS Media Mail rate; most of my clothes, blankets, and art supplies will be shipped via Amtrak freight.
  • Money for SUV/Van rental -- we're going to find one that accepts either Triple A, student discounts, or both.
  • Gas money, Food, tolls, hotel rooms, etc.
  • Supplies to care for my cat during the trip (including a large carrier, disposable cat litter trays, cat food, cat calming medication to keep her happy, etc). I also plan on getting her chipped for the long journey, just in case she somehow gets lost.

PLEASE HELP if you can! Even a few dollars can make a BIG difference for us. We would also be grateful if you were to spread the word to other folks you think might be willing to help. THANK YOU!! We are both looking forward to our new life together!
