Please Help Support This GoFundMe Campaign for my Friend, Fred Chapman

Fred ChapmanI donated to this Go Fund Me campaign because Fred Chapman has been a good friend of mine for many years and a great supporter of both me and my musician clients. He’s a wonderful, smart guy (he has his PhD in Math!) who really just wants to work and get his life back and I know very well as a self-employed person, that when the chips are down, we need help like this! Someday it could be me.

If anyone I know or that this post reaches can help with tips for a job for Fred (his LinkedIn profile is in the campaign description), a donation (any amount is appreciated) or simply by sharing this post, we would both be very grateful! Thank you so much!

All my best, Christine 🙏



  1. Thank you so much, Christine! I deeply appreciate all your help.

    What makes my situation so difficult is that I was laid off twice in 3 years due to company-wide downsizing: first, I lost my job in December 2015 when Khan Academy let all the contractors go, and then I lost my job again in December 2018 when IXL Learning let at least 18 employees and contractors go. (The IXL layoff became permanent for me in April.)

    I have been looking for work for over 4 months and have run out of money. My May rent is due today and I cannot pay it, which puts me at risk for being evicted. I would be very grateful to anyone who can help me stay afloat financially while I complete my job search.

    No donation is too small. Many small donations add up to one big emergency fund. I ask everyone who reads this to please spread the word so that I can keep going and get back to work ASAP. Thank you so much!

    1. You’re very welcome, Fred. I know how easily I could find myself in the same situation and I also know you’ve been doing what you can to find work. Don’t give up as it will happen! In the meantime, we’ll keep sharing the link to your GoFundMe campaign and pray for the best!
