$220 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 36 months
Hello world!  My name is Ric Tolbert.  It’s truly a blessing and an honor to be with you here in this digital forum.  I AM IN NEED OF YOUR HELP VIA DONATION.  I have invented a great, family-friendly product that I am in the process of acquiring patents for.  Through my own hard work, I’ve earned & submitted the necessary funds for my initial (design) patent but in order for me to protect my product I must acquire a utility patent for it as well.  For those of you who know me well, I’m the same guy that you’ve worked with/fellowshipped with/played sports with/laughed with/cried with over the years and I cherish all of our fond memories together.  Your help via donation will be greatly appreciated.  For those of you who don’t know me, allow me to tell you about who I am so that you’ll know that you’re supporting a worthy person with a worthy cause. 

I am a U.S. military veteran and I’m proud to have served our great country honorably.  I am the son of two hardworking and very loving entrepreneurs who instilled the principles of honesty, hard work, love, and respect into me at an early age.  My parents taught me and my siblings to ALWAYS work hard, never complain and be thankful for the simple things in life, namely family and love for one another.  I am forever grateful for all of the things that my parents taught myself and my siblings.  Another principle that they taught us reigns true to me today. “Always ask for help when you really need it.”  Today I am heeding my parent’s good advice by asking for your donation.  I’ve been working quite hard over the past few years on my current project and I’ve reached the “help” point.

The product that I’ve created is a great family-friendly, environmentally-safe product that has the potential to be used in every home and business WORLDWIDE within the next 2-5 years.  Unfortunately, I am not at liberty to discuss the name or any details of my product until AFTER I’ve secured ALL of the required patents for it.  The money that is donated/earned will go towards the final (utility) patent, manufacturing of product demos and product marketing.  My goal is to begin selling my product during the upcoming holiday season.  With your generosity, this is a very achievable goal for me.

Long term my life’s mission is to do my part to uplift the world in which we live by honoring past generations, and mentoring the present and upcoming generations mainly via education and social enlightenment.  I believe that we must teach the present and upcoming generations HOW to be caring, confident, knowledgeable, productive members of society.  After all, the world will one day be theirs and it would be irresponsible to leave them ill-prepared for such a task.  This is a passion that I shared with my beloved sister Tawanna Lyles whom I lost to breast cancer in 2013.  She was a proud, devoted middle-school teacher who loved her family and her students, we miss her ever so dearly.  I plan to honor her fighting spirit by championing these efforts going forward.  By the grace of God, all of these things will be accomplished by myself and my team with a humble, optimistic spirit and a loving heart.

Thank you in advance for supporting my dreams and ambitions, and for believing in me.  Much love to you all and may God bless you and yours abundantly.

 

Sincerely,

Ric Tolbert
