My dear friend and fellow kossack newpioneer is facing a very difficult time. He has sold the beautiful lop-eared goats he loved, and is doing whatever is needed to try to hang onto his farm until he begins his new job as a sushi chef: but that won't happen for ten weeks.

His neighbor and good friend has been buying the dog food.

This situation is unsustainable.

newpioneer isn't asking for more: I am asking on his behalf.

He closed his restaurant b/c he couldn't afford to keep it open AND pay for his love's home care at the same time. He took the risk, just so he could attend to Juan for the last year as the cancer consumed him.

Now, newp is left with little, except the job that begins in ten weeks, a few dogs, and a farm he is desperately trying to save until he once again has an income.

Will you help? Please?

I have known him for years, and newp is one of the good guys.

(Newp: this is the part where you jump in and give everyone your paypal link.)

Just in case, I'm gonna link to Sara R's diary from last night:

Can you imagine how newpioneer feels? He had this:

and lost it.

Please give.

Juan is gone. We must ensure newp's future:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
