Namaste Dear Souls,

It has been my life long dream to be a touring musician, a dream that I have actualized but keep fine-tuning.  Over the past year I have been exploring what it feels like to live on the road doing what I love, by renting camper vans when I tour.  And I have decided that I ABSOLUTELY ADORE IT!!!  So after watching a million videos on YouTube about Van Life and Sprinter Van Conversions, I have decided to take the plunge.  I bought a Dodge Ram ProMaster High Roof Sprinter Van and will be converting it into a camper van with the help of my dear friend Jim Gates. We are just now figuring out what the cost of this undertaking will be, and after purchasing the van, my resources are pretty depleted.  BUT I know all of you who believe in me and love what I do will help me manifest what I need to see this project through to its full actualization.

4 WAYS TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT:

1.  by clicking the donate button, you can contribute any amount

2.  by downloading some of my music from my MUSIC STORE

3.  by purchasing some of the cool items below

4.  by hosting me for a kirtan or sound bath event at a venue near you. 
     You can CONTACT ME HERE
, Let's set something up!

Since this isn't being done on a crowd-funding website, I get your donation right away and the work on the van can continue.  AND you don't have to wait for your perks!  I will ship them to you right away.  AND every cent you donate goes directly to supporting my project and not to some third party.  I like that part the best!

Thank you in advance for your kind support!

With love and light, OM Shanti, OM Prem,
Mirabai Moon

Undaunted by delays 

We finally got the van windows this afternoon... just as well that they came late, it was too rainy yesterday to start cutting holes in the van. Hoping to resume work on the van on Friday if the weather cooperates. We are planning to put a full weekend of work in next weekend. The exciting news is that RAM van is going to be used as the demo in a solar power workshop at Touch Mother Earth Gathering the first weekend in June! So we spent this evening determining our electrical needs so we can have all the supplies we need on hand for the workshop. I hope to have these figures tomorrow so I can post our next fundraising goal. In the meantime, we are still taking donations if anyone feels inspired.  Thank you Christine A. Angel and Karuna Lynne Elson for your kind support.

We met our goal for the windows! 

Once again I am so touched by everyone's generosity. Not only did I reach my goal for the 2 van windows, but I raised another $163 which should cover all the materials for the flooring of the van! Thank you Lynda Ferrara, Eileen Alexander DiNinno, Priya Ann-Marie Bochicchio, & Greg Skroce for your loving support! We should have the windows by the weekend and we will be resuming work on the van this Sunday.  We are working out the budget now for the insulation, walls and solar powered electrical system. I'll be posting that soon. God bless you all!

You touched my heart 

 

I'm so moved and completely blown away by the generosity I have experienced the past few days! Thank you Christine A. Angel, Jessica High, Kimberly DeMario, Brian King, and Kathie Prieto for your kind support. Got my ventilation fan and all the supplies needed for installation. I'm just $80 away from getting the 2 van windows.

RAM purification is underway 

Thank you to Jessica Moroz, Chrisoula Hammad, and Mind Body Works for your contributions. We are still needing another $500 to cover the windows and the ventilation fan. Any kind souls out there willing and able to support our project will be greatly appreciated.

 

Ready to begin! 

Thank you Ruth Beltran, Lila Om, and Diane Padma Maucier for funding my first trip to Lowe's ❤🕉🦋 
Tomorrow the work begins with a thorough cleaning of the inside of the van, as it is a used one, and a fresh coat of rust-oleum spray paint on the interior floor to prevent any rust.
