About this project

Overview of Getting Back Up

When life takes an unexpected turn … all you can do IS get back up!

John is a genuine type of guy who has become homeless for the first time in his life. John worked for a printing company before it went out of business. He doesn’t know anyone who has ever been homeless, so he doesn’t know what to do nor where to go in order to get assistance or help.

Have you or someone you know:

… ever been homeless?

... ever had to stand in lines to get help to survive? 

If the answer is yes... than this story will speak to you. 

If the answer is no… pay close attention, this situation could be yours.

With little money after unemployment ran out and a fresh eviction, John experiences some unreal and definitely unexpected events that will have you bursting out with laughter to pondering what in the world happened?

__________________  Acknowledgement  ________________

First I, Alex Massey Multimedia Visual Artist and Author would like to thank you for your interest in reading “Getting Back Up” a fictional story inspired by random events experienced within my life. I want to definitely give honor to the Divine Creator for guiding me through the process of creating this story and producing something that can offer help or direction to a person who finds themselves in a situation as severe as being without a place to call home.

Being homeless is in no way a funny situation to experience. However laughter spreads awareness better than sadness therefore Getting Back Up takes a comedic view to a serious and growing illness within the United States of America.

The Goal for this book is to offer direction and understanding to overcome homelessness. Fifty percent of all funds earned from this book and the future planned series of books, audibles, and film in production, will be used to establish jobs within our communities and offer assistance to individuals experiencing homelessness due to financial hardship.

Together, with your support we can change the course of homelessness in America and Rebrand the American Dream! 

I would like to thank all of my Family and Friends that have shared some of life’s events that inspired the creative writing to produce “Getting Back Up” the book.

To my friends that inspired or offered any thoughts to this project, I want you to know I appreciate it all. All the understanding and All the patience. The Time is Finally Now!

Risks and challenges

One of my main challenges has been having the funding needed to successfully engage 100% on my projects. As a Multimedia Visual Artist and Author, I have wrote content for various entertainment from books to films. I believe with funding I can produce more great entertaining content for many to love and save as their favorites. Also obtaining the extra funding dedicated to taking care of all of the expenses required for a full feature production to be formed and completed has been my primary challenge. Now with Kickstarter I'm asking others to support my vision and mission behind this content.

Thanks In Advance for any help you may be able to offer.
