My Dream is Left Unfulfilled... Will You Help Me?

I have a $2,645 dream to feel beautiful for a change. Believe it or not I want it more than a trip to Japan. I just want to be photographed by Jamie Nelson, and for one day and for every day after when I look at those photographs, my life won't feel as bleak as it's been feeling. It would be a constant reminder of how far I've come in developing a healthy self-image. For the first time in my life I think I'm worth being a part of art. Believe it or not, I'm a substance abuse counselor despite all these dreams of being a princess you see posted daily. This blog keeps me going! I made the choice because it's what I'm good at and I can't fathom dedicating eight hours of every weekday for the majority of my life to something outside of helping people. No matter how unglamorous.

So out of this choice certain things are necessary to sustain me. A girl has needs.

Jamie Nelson emailed me back and said the photoshoot would be $2,645 USD. Thomas Gantz and Dana have already contributed $30 USD total which I can't thank them enough for.

It feels funny asking for donations, I'm just asking for a bit of fuel to keep this blogger going and entertaining. If you do contribute by clicking the bunny button below, I will most certainly thank you and link you in this post. You can even buy something with any ad on this site and that commission can be your donation! Just let me know.

Thanks for reading this. One day this will happen for me and I will post those images proudly right here for the world to see.

I think that this is an amazing idea! The price is totally worth the self esteem boost you will get from the pictures.

As soon as I get some money, I will definitely help out. The whole idea is absolutely lovely. This blog is what keeps me going, and I definitely think you deserve to feel beautiful!

It's so wonderful that you're a substance abuse counselor too. I'm a psychologist in training. ^.^

Much love,
