Boozhoo (hello), my name is Ken, I am a disabled Ojibwe artist from northern Wisconsin. I am writing this post because I am having a hard time making ends meet and any donations I could possibly receive at this time would be greatly appreciated. Recent events have left my bank account depleted and my cupboards bare, I have some food but it will not last and I still do not know how I will cover all the utility bills.

I do have PayPal, that is really the best way to donate at this time, the email I use for that is:, or you can click here.


Please share!


Hi everyone,

I hate to make a post like this but I really don’t know what else to do. My roommate noticed a lump on my dog Oakley’s foot a couple weeks ago and she’s had to go to the vet three times since then. We found out that the lump is a tumor that needs to be surgically removed. The cost of the surgery alone is almost $600, that’s not including the antibiotics and ointment we’ve already tried which brings it up to almost $1,000 in vet bills this month alone. 

Most of you probably don’t know this, but I was under severe stress and started cutting just over two years ago now.

I also have been struggling with an as of yet undiagnosed ailment that causes me to randomly have severe debilitating pain to the point of passing out. I got Oakley partially because I wanted to be responsible for someone else so that I would have a reason to keep trying to get healthy.  I’m in a much better place now mentally, which is definitely in part because of my puppy. She’s a certified therapy dog that loves literally everything and everyone. I could brag about her all day, but I’ll just put in some adorable pictures of her below.

Any help you could give, whether donations or just signal boosting would be really really appreciated! The link to our gofundme is here. Thank you all so much ❤



This is my new favorite hangout spot. I walked here from home with a cup of tea and my watercolor supplies. A floating dock out of the reach of sun or rain floats underneath the marina. And it has friends. 😍

I can’t get over the fact that some of you guys can walk to places like this when all I can walk to to relax is the burger king down the street.
