What can YOU say in six sentences?
hi 6ers ,
this is about the only site where I feel comfortable letting people in on my personal life so I thought I would give you an update and ask for some help with something personal. it is far to long to do as a blog post.
Many know I planned to go to SC to check out a chance to move near my dad.
since June started I have failed to make the Ohio WV border twice as cars have self destructed underneath me and my son draining my savings to under a hundred dollars .
I then had some one use my debit card info , drain the checking account and though I should get that cash back. It is now two days from my birthday it was looking pretty bleak .
the upside ? my son then was actually here in Ohio to meet with talent scouts for a free event that seeks aspiring child actors to get an agent and jobs a dream of his since he was 4.
Out of over a thousand kids trying out in Columbus he was one of the 30 or so kids selected to go to Orlando to meet with agents, casting directors and perform a monologue.
nothing has been promised to him for a job but it is an opportunity to get signed with an agent and meet some casting directors as well as attend seminars etc in december on christmas break.
My son is willing to give up his karate and football this year and has promised to maintain his honor roll grades.My dads money is wrapped up in the house he was going to let us live in for free in SC and now I have no cash to move there the wife is looking for a second job to pay for the trip and the extras it will require as he will need to bring the following
100 new head shots and a resume of his talents hobbies to attach to the back .
a sixty second comedic monologue appropriate for children( I will attempt this myself but if one of you can write a better one it would be nice)
A tux to wear the awards night if disney selects him as having the best 60 second monologue ( he will be competing in at least two categories )
some other decent clothes for him and me are other expenses as I need to dress appropriatley as well ( I have two decent dress shirt and tie outfits).
we are not being asked to fly or stay at any specific place to participate but figure a week in orlando with all the dress requirements and photo stuff we need to get at roughly 5000$
my kid is not a charity nor will I pretend he is anything other than a good kid with a dream so anything you guys could spare from a best of luck to a few dollars or anything else would be appreciated .
grammy and other relatives are going to chip in as well and we are trying to plan fundraisers.
my home phone is 614-991-4832 or you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
june has felt like a train wreck personally but maybe it was for a reason. If I can find a way to pull this off and stay afloat financially it would be a miracle but I have to try for my sons sake I never want to look back and wonder what if ?? I would sacrifice everythingif it helps him achieve. attached is a more recent photo though not as good as the one we gave the talent scouts if you want to see something better than his avatar photo i may add more to my gallery when i figure out how.
I wish I could do more than wish you all the best of success, but please know that it's heartfelt.
