The old Skeptical Raptor is asking for your help

For those of you who don’t me, I am getting on in years, and I have come to realize that I focused on my career and lifestyle rather than the things that should matter most in my life — my three special daughters. They are now all adults, and it is time for me to be a part of their lives, as I live in California and they live on the East Coast.

Because of personal medical and spectacular financial disasters, I am stuck in California, far away from my daughters, and all of us know that the only way to be family again is if I am physically close to them. I need them since they are my only family.

I had a terrible breakdown while running a startup company. I put all of my money into it, thinking that just one more dollar would get it going. I failed, which caused what some people call a nervous breakdown.

Despite my ongoing travesties and missteps, this website was going to be my income stream to get me close to them. For about a year it worked, but Google changed its rankings for this website, and I’ve gotten clobbered. Many of my articles that were in the top 5 of the Google rankings are now <100. This destroyed my income stream from this website.

And if you don’t understand, writing articles, managing the back end of this website, and answering comments and questions is nearly a full-time job.

So, I’m asking for your help so that I can be in my daughters’ lives. Even if I get out there, it’s going to be difficult, but it’s the first step. I have limited years left in my life, and if I don’t do this now, I never will be in their lives.

I know that my story is no better or worse than anyone else’s, but I am really stuck. And I could use your help.

So, there are three ways you can help me.

The first way costs you no money, other than buying something on Amazon. Just click on the image/link and buy whatever suits your fancy.

The second way is Patreon:

All you have to do is go to my Patreon Page and my latest posts from here will appear there as if they were magic, without any advertising.

And the final way is on my GoFundMe page:

I thank you for your support.
