Help Us With A Dream

Campaign created 11 months ago

I'm a musician and maker of guitar pedals.  Reumitoid Arthritus runs in my family and about 12 years ago I started getting very bad effects from it, along with horrible cases of gout.  Mostly in the the legs and feet. Treatment has done little to nothing for me, Yes, I've tried it all with very dissapointing results.  I'd like to accomplish something before my best days are past.  Getting this business up and running after more than a year of hard work at it would be a real blessing for us both.

It is tough to explain how embarrassed I am to even make such a request, not an easy thing to do.  I know there are people with greater needs than the wife and myself, but If you can find it in your heart to help , We would certainly appreciate "any" funds you could spare. It would truly help us!

My Story:

In the past 17 months I have spent what funds I can manage on starting this small business -  building and selling quality handmade guitar pedals and custom wired control plates, etc. for guitars.  I'm at a standstill now and desperately need some equipment for the tiny shop I'm trying hard to build.  I need a new color laser printer, drillpress, cordless drills, bandsaw, & assorted tools.  I also need funds to help finish the tiny shop I started to build to house everything. 

The small shop where I would continue to build my product would also serve as a small studio room.  Even with the pain I still have a strong desire to create music for the world. Music really helps me cope with the Arthritus, take my mind off of it a bit.

I make a very nice product and know that we can sell them.  With your help, we can achieve the dream of my business and further musical pursuits.  Hoping to raise enough money by January.   I believe that $2800.00 would cover a great deal of my expenses.   If you can help out we would really be grateful, if not then thanks for your time and please pass this along to someone who might could possibly help us.  If our goal is met or close to it, 10% of the monies will be donated to St. Judes Children's Hospital.  Proof of donation will be provided of course!

Thank you for your time and concideration.
