So awhile ago, I posted a GoFundMe, asking for help, because I found myself in a situation, were I genuinely had nowhere to live. I can't commit to long term renting, until I know what's going to become of the divorce I'm currently working through, and short term renting is astronomically expensive. I reached a point where I was calling all the homeless shelters I could find, asking for any kind of help. But since we're in a housing crisis, shelters are packed, during this harsh winter.

Goblins readers started to generously offer their couches or spare rooms (thank you!!!), but they all lived very far from BC Canada, and I need to be in that area for my doctors visits and upcoming surgery (my surgery is scheduled for Feb 21st. It's not a scary deal and I'll totally be fine).

I honestly didn't have anyone to turn to, and I started having panic attacks. I started to wonder if I was going to find myself sitting on a sidewalk bench, clutching a suitcase and a drawing tablet. So I asked for financial help. More than once, I was brought to tears, by the generosity and love, but also be the massive relief of knowing that I had a place to stay. Saying thank you, doesn't seem like enough, but... thank you.

Right now, I'm safe and warm. I can stay where I am until the end of Feb, but thanks to you, I have a place set up after that, where I should be able to stay for at least 3 months.

Drawing hasn't really happened much, as I scramble to get my life sorted out. This is a really chaotic time for me, but I'm going to be okay. Again... because of you.

That homeless scare, was a fear that I never want to feel again. But just know that everything is going to be okay over here. I look forward to getting those Goblins pages coming out once again.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
