The West Ladies, consisting of Vicki West and her three daughters, Jasmine, Cecilia, and Hannah, have been living off the land in a self-sustaining, homesteading lifestyle for over 20 years. Because of their agrarian lifestyle, they have been blessed with the opportunity to share this knowledge of simple living through their website (www.homestead-blessings.com) and the Homestead Blessings DVD series, helping countless friends, family, and complete strangers learn the forgotten skills of the American homesteader. They have also blessed many with their music, by performing and composing songs, bringing a smile to faces, and reminders of thankfulness for the simple wonders of life.
Now they could use our help.
Due to unavoidable and unfortunate events, the West Ladies had to move from the farmhouse and land that they leased, cultivated, established, and loved for over 14 years. They were provided temporary shelter in the form of a travel trailer, but they will need to vacate it by October of this year!
They had hoped that income from their business and DVDs would come in enough to make it possible for them to have their own home and piece of Tennessee land, continuing the art of homesteading. However, that was not the case, and we would now like to help them raise the funds to build a new home.
The goal is to raise $25,000 for building materials for a small movable cabin that they can call their own, and associated needs, including:
- deep cycle or forklift batteries (for small solar panels)
- one energy efficient freezer (it will be converted into a refrigerator that will run from the solar.)
- one 150-200 gallon water tank
Please help the West Ladies meet this goal! Thank you for giving from your heart!
