I’m turning 40 in a few days (eeep!). I’ve been in a stable location (New Jersey) and career (Tattooing) for years now and I’ve been missing both the freedom of travel (I’ve bicycled halfway across the u.s. and done various wwoofing/volunteering jobs) and the sense of community that I once had from previous punk houses I’ve resided in.

My lease is up soon and I am looking to relocate/have some adventures. If anyone knows of any cool anarchist communities I could help with, or any work trade-type situations (preferably working with animals, rescued farm animals or rehabbing wild animals) ideally in the contiguous 48, I’d be much appreciative. I had a network of friends in D.C., North Carolina, and Humboldt Co, CA, with whom I have sadly fallen out of contact over the intervening years.

stay raddd,

—Matt.

Hey dude I worked with The Catholic Worker movement and no not everyone is catholic, hell at the one I worked and lived at only one of the 6 of were lol

It's based in anarchism and social justice helping in hospitality for those who are houseless

Every location is different tho and has slightly different ideologies and views on house to run the house but here is a link


The one I was at in STL shut down but it was really rad and connected to an old catholic church turned into a punk venue and skate park called Sk8 Laborius

Good luck man

Total amount
$115.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $115.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
