Down payment fundraiser

My name is James Howard, I am the founder, owner and operator of Direct Details. Direct Details is an auto reconditioning company in Binghamton NY and I am the son of this city. Direct Details started on a 3x5 foot trailer attached to my family vehicle and has grown tremendously, and is quickly becoming a common name in the tri-cities auto detailing industry. Through growth and community impact I have realized this little thing I started can and will be more than just detailing cars with an attention to detail that produces immaculate results. Since opening this business May 14th 2019, our team has grown 500%, we have been a first job for a budding young man. We have held fundraisers for school supplies, facilitated food drives and even been a virtual field trip for a class of preschool age children. Last month our landlord informed us that he will be selling the building and was giving Direct Details a chance to buy it. We are working hard to raise everything we can for a down payment on this building that has become a home for us and even a landmark for some. But we need your help. This is our campaign to you. You will not be contributing to one man's dream to shine (get it?) You will be contributing to a company that intends to be a staple of this community as well as an after school program for teenage youth. This program will help our youth understand small business is an option and that no matter what you are your own boss. This city has given me friends, family and opportunities in abundance. We will to return your love and support, I will pay forward everything my community has done for me and for Direct Details. Thank you for reading and if you contributed to our cause or shared, I am beyond grateful! Sincerely, James Howard
