I LIKE MEAT

BUT CAN'T AFFORD IT!

My name is Jordan, and I can't believe it has finally come to this. Here I am, a recent college graduate, in Durango, a beautiful town nestled in the San Juan mountains of southwestern Colorado. I have a job. I go fishing on the weekends. I have some friends.  There is just one problem: no matter how hard I work, I just can't afford to eat meat.  It has been over three months since I went out to a restaurant for dinner. I can't remember the last time I had a steak.  The problem is that Durango is kind of an expensive place to live. All of my hard-earned cash goes to paying the rent on my tiny apartment (over $600 a month!), putting gas in my Ford Explorer ($1.59 a gallon), and paying my bills. I also owe my parents a bundle of money.  On top of all this I am going to have to pay for graduate school in about a year.

I need your help. I can pay my bills. I can pay off Mom and Dad. I may even be able to pay for graduate school with some student loans and financial aid. I need your help because I LIKE MEAT BUT CAN'T AFFORD IT!  Please, please, please send me a few bucks via Paypal, and I will drop you a line letting you know what kind of meat I got, and how much I enjoyed it. Donors who give more than $10.00 will receive a personal, handwritten letter from me describing the meal they provided, as well as a place on the Wall of Fame.  

If I told you I was starving, it would be a lie.  The fact of the matter is that I dearly miss eating meat, and, with your help, I would like to enjoy again what most people take for granted every day. I know there are worthier causes than mine, and that money doesn't grow on trees; I am asking for your help. Whether or not you make a donation, you can email me to hear more of my sad story!  Thanks a lot for coming to my site, and for your generosity!

6/21/03 UPDATE - I am just poor as hell. Poorer than a family of 19 in Bangladesh. Most people of my economic status smoke crack all day and live in the gutter. I would get on welfare, but I'm just too embarrassed. For goodness sake, please help me out! Thanks a lot to those of you who have already donated! The meaty sustenance you provided has helped carry me through some dark days!
