We recently heard that one of our all-time favorites, golden age actress Miss Sharon Mitchell, has recently been going through a very tough time.
The Rialto Report interviewed Mitch early in 2014 – and heard how she had struggled since the closure of her AIM organization a few years ago.
In recent years she’s lived in a rural area in the country outside of Los Angeles where she has struggled to find work. After several years of looking, Mitch finally found work with a nearby AIDS advisory service this summer, but shortly after she started work there she crashed her motorbike. She was badly hurt in the accident – and the bike was almost a complete write-off.
What made this even worse was that she needed the bike to commute to her job, and Sharon has not been able to afford the cost of the repairs so the bike remains with the repair shop.
Without the bike, Mitch will not be able to stay in work – and she badly needs the income to survive.
This holiday season we’ve joined up with the Golden Age Appreciation Fund to raise money for Mitch. Please visit the site and give whatever you can. It’s so important to Mitch that she can get back to work.
Thanks very much for all your help.
