My invention

The Short Story
I invented a utility knife product and need help from you all to fund my new project! 

The Long Story
Hello to all my friends, family, and colleagues. Neither I nor any of my bands have ever done one of these before because I have always felt that you all have done so much for me in the past but this time, I personally need some help. This is something a little different, you see, almost a decade ago I was working with my dad at Advance Glass in Chicago Heights and I had an Idea for an invention that would improve the way glazing and other contracting/DIY home improvement projects were done. It was a variation of a utility knife that could significantly improve the way utility knives function and are used (I can't go in to much detail about this just yet because the patent is still pending but once I have it, I will post drawings, and the prototype) Anyway, I sat on this thing for close to 10 years and just recently decided to pursue it. The Idea has had good feedback and I'm about to get into the designing and prototype phase so I can secure the patent.  I have all the rights to this knife so I have to fund all of the designing, advertising, and development and it is not cheap and I will have to dump my savings and credit into this because I believe this is a great product. I am asking for the help of anyone who is willing to donate any amount to help me with my new business venture. With this money I will be able to develop the product, cover travel expenses, pay for advertising and hopefully create a new career for myself and many other hard working people internationally.  Thank you so much for reading and I really hope you consider helping me create a utility knife for all you professional and DIY contractors in the workforce!

PS - I will do my best to make sure all who donate get one of the knives for their contribution. I can't guarantee it as of now only because the deal has yet to be made but you have my word that I will do my best if everything goes according to plan.
