99 Reasons Why from Jacqueline S. Homan on Vimeo.

The Goals

I am currently focusing on creating vlogs, screencasts, and articles aimed at educating the public by dispelling the myths about poverty, homelessness, and advocating for economic inclusion of the jobless poor with no incomes whose health/disabilities/age are used to deny them any employment or economic opportunity, and debunking the logical fallacy of survivorship bias that has inflicted a lot of very real harm to real people's lives, and resulted in some very bad social and economic policy over the past 40+ years (at least).

Values

My values are simple: Treat others the way you would want to be treated if the shoe were on your foot, and always wear clean underwear.

Goals
$212 of $2,500 per month
Any funding raised on Patreon is greatly appreciated and enormously helpful. This goal that will allow me to keep writing, and to keep delivering content and hopefully, eventually keep 99 Reasons Why going without ads by covering the costs of systems, internet, articles by others, etc.

If I get enough support, it will allow me to economically provide for myself without having to beg through repeat personal fundraisers as a poor struggling older woman who is unemployable due to severe health problems - who is struggling to afford my diabetes medicine, testing supplies, special podiatrist care for my feet (toenail fungus and ingrown toenails are more than just a minor embarrassment - they often result in foot ulcers that don't heal for a diabetic, which results in eventual foot and leg apmputation) and buy the foods that I can have as a diabetic so that blindness or amputation (or both) don't become a guaranteed destination for me. All this after having already suffered so, so much from lifelong poverty despite having tried everything humanly possible to make it before it became too late.
