Important message from Open Casting Calls publisher


I am extremely distraught and crying today, as we have a 48 hour shut off notice notice from PG&E, and our electricity and gas will be shut off on Wednesday morning August 31st if we do not pay the past due amount by the end of Tuesday August 30th. Our 5 & 8 year old daughters will be taking cold water baths and what little food we have in the fridge and freezer will go bad. To make things worse, we have not been able to come up with rent for August, and could end up homeless. I have been applying for jobs for many months and I finally have two good prospects, with interviews this week. If anyone can help us out, please contact me at alan.baltes@gmail.com. I will re-pay and pay-it-forward as soon as I possibly can. We also have a fundraiser that does pay out the donations daily - https://www.gofundme.com/Feher-Baltes-Help (it takes several days for the donations to deposit into my bank account). God bless you in advance.
