Offering My Services for Equipment Campaign

Dear friends,

Thanks for visiting this page and reading my story!
In this campaign I am OFFERING MY SERVICES in EXCHANGE for the contributions towards the budget for the equipment. 

During the last years I've donated quite a lot of money to various fundraisers (projects on kickstarter, fundraisers of friends and a few charities). I did it from my heart, and I hope in the future when my situation is different I will have a chance to contribute to many more projects and fundraisers. And today I would appreciate YOUR involvement!

It is not a typical crowdfunding campaign, here I am offering actual high-quality services (some of which are on a special more affordable  rate), with a purpose to earn within a few weeks a budget for buying  some new upgraded EQUIPMENT. So this fundraiser is a special CALL FOR CLIENTS, people who want to collaborate with me :)

During my long life I've acquired a lot of skills in a few different fields, yet due to a few factors (freelancing, cost of living, change of occupation & multiple courses which I need to finish) it is not easy to manage to save up for up-to-date equipment.  There are a few technical challenges to deal with - my websites not visible in Russia & Ukraine (because of the ban of my current provider), it would take a lot of time to build the new websites (learning a new platform).

So I would like to share my skills with YOU and be of service and that way to not to take another loan, rather buy the equipment with the money which already specially put off.

As far as my wellness education goes, I've been learning counseling, art therapy, OIT (emotional image therapy), crystal healing mainly from Russia & Ukraine and it is not a degree program (multiple short-term courses, diploma program, workshops, other resources, etc). And astrology I've learned from astrologers from around the world. Since developing a wellness practice takes time, months, years, and also in North America some of the education from Russia & Ukraine is not recognized at all in spite of how effective methods are, so I am counting solely on clients coming from the social circle and social media. So it is a challenge in terms of promotion and finding collaborations with local organizations.

However these are the methods I believe in and enjoy working with as well as see results from. Studying at a degree program in North American university is not an option for me in the near future. I believe that within a few years methods like MACards counselling / coaching / therapy and Emotional Image Therapy will be even popular around the world.

It is a common fact that many immigrants who have solid education in wellness, medicine, law and a few other fields cannot easily (or at all) recognize their education in Canada or USA. As much as this makes sense in a way, in reality not always.

Information about my background and experience you can find on my www.lifeinglow.com website. 

Here you can learn a bit more about what I do and maybe consider purchasing a VOUCHER / COUPON towards some of my service or product.  Of course you are welcome also to check my websites, SHARE this fundraiser and REFER me to your friends and colleagues. As well as if you have ideas for how to improve it you can also drop me a message.

(just a note for people from Russia & Ukraine, my websites are not visible there because of the provider, later in 2020 there will be new websites in 2 languages on a new platform).

My services are listed in Q4 (consultations - online sessions):

Counseling with Metaphorical Associative cards, Life & Business Coaching (MACards / Art coaching)
Astrology, Numerology sessions;
Crystal consultations;
Tutoring & Consulting
; Mentorship
Blitz sessions & readings for self-discovery, self-development;
Admin help


OBJECTIVES of the CAMPAIGN:

1) to raise the budget for equipment within a few weeks
2) to get new clients and more work
3) awareness of methods, to promote some methods that I practice, because I believe they can be very effective for a variety of situations 

......................................................................................................................

Questions & Answers:

Q1:  What equipment are you going to buy? Where will money go to?

A1:  1) fast powerful laptop (cost between cad $2300-3000)
               (I need a PC laptop because of some software I'd like to use)

          2) a professional microphone for video work  (~ cad $350-450)
               (vlogging, documentary films etc)

          3)* if there is extra budget I will be able to buy a few software (video, design, astrology), a few accessories, and gadgets  for video production.

          4)* Time to make the new versions of my websites in English & Russian (wellness, astrology)

          5)* Anything extra will be put into the production budget 
                for the episodes of my vlogs, it depends how much is left
               (Life in Glow Wellness, Tango Dancers).

.........................................................................................................................

Q2:  How fast do you need the budget? What is the timeline of the campaign?

A2:  The laptop and mic I need quite urgently within a few weeks as fast as the funds are available.
          My old laptop is very slow and hard to predict how long it will last, also it is not possible to do pro editing on. 
          Some necessary software I cannot install on the laptop because higher specs are required.

GoFundMe campaigns can stay active (unlike other platforms) for a few months or even years until the creator of the campaign chooses to close it, e.g. when the goal is reached or surpassed enough. 

........................................................................................................................

Q3:  What are you ready to offer to others?

A3:  1) I am offering Vouchers & Gift Certificates  to my services for any contribution of USD $5 or more. 
               So technically it is not a pure donation (although if it is not claimed before December 2020,  it will become a donation). I look forward to the collaboration with everyone who is interested :).

Make sure to fill out THIS FORM after your contribution!
https://www.lifeinglow.com/birthday-fundraiser-2020-form.html

          2) Having equipment will allow me to edit 3 SHORT FILMS + a few interviews for 2 vlogs,  which I hope you will enjoy watching.

          3) I will edit a few videos about my 1st trip to Mexico :). It might be of help to some people (will be posted on my vlog).

          4) it will also help to produce other episodes for the Life in Glow Wellness Vlog 

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnrvrUrUSmqBsPwfHCCoocw

          5) astrological research - if I get many contributions, it would help to spare some free time from promotion and looking for work.  That way I can do more research and it will be of benefit to some people in the future.


..........................................................................................................................

..............................................................................................................................

Q5:  Is there an expiry date for Vouchers / Gift Certificates?

A5:  Coupons can be redeemed before December 31, 2020, meaning that you need
          to book (schedule) the consultation before December, 2020 (session is not guaranteed if you wait till the last minute).
         Or if it is a product , get it before December 31st, 2020.

Make sure to fill out THIS FORM after your contribution!
https://www.lifeinglow.com/birthday-fundraiser-2020-form.html

..............................................................................................................

Q6:  What is the difference between a voucher (coupon) & gift certificate?

A6:   Voucher (or coupon) is an amount you contributed which can be used as a "credit" to any of my services, including the ones within the SPECIAL OFFER mentioned on this page.

For example, if you contributed $15 amount, and I know your name, the equivalent amount will be put under your name in the contributors spreadsheet. When you contact me for some service (whether in February or later in 2020) you can remind me about the contribution and that you have a 15 credit towards my services.

If you fill out the form mentioned in Q/A5  and chose "gift certificate for another person", then you would need to tell me who this person is and that amount will be credited to the service chosen by your friend/ relative/ colleague. I will send you a numbered Gift Certificate on request.

So if the service is usd $55 for a 1-hour session, and you have a usd $25 voucher, whoever takes the service has to pay the difference of usd $25. 

..............................................................................................................

Q7:  What should I (you) do?

A7:   step 1: Choose the service or product you are interested 
           step 2: Fill out the FORM on my website (for contributors from Russia & Ukraine I will create very soon a special GOOGLE FORM, because my websites might not be visible in these countries :( ). 

or
       you can choose what amount you are ok spending and decide later 
       what to apply it for - before December 2020
(prices for some  services might be higher than on the special offer). 
................................................................................................................

Q8: Is there a way to contribute without any $$?

A8: Yes!

1) The simplest way is to SUBSCRIBE to my Life in Glow Wellness vlog or Tango Dancers youtube channel, to watch some videos on my Vlogs and like them if you enjoyed them :).

2) You can also write a review (if you were a client and did not submit a review yet) and you can like my FB pages.

3) You can translate some of my videos into another language if you speak it fluently (create captions / subtitles).

4) You can take part in the Tango Dancers Project - My First Tango Story - tell your interesting story sharing it with other people on the Tango Dancers channel, contact and I will explain to you how to record yourself and other details. 

I will create a page later in February with other ideas how else you can contribute.

..................................................................................................................

Q9:  Are there any extra FEES involved?

Q9:  For contributors (donors of GoFundMe campaign) there might be a currency conversion fee involved, the campaign is in USD, just because it is international and easier to estimate the equivalent in dollars.
https://support.gofundme.com/hc/en-us/articles/203604354-International-Donations

If you live in CANADA and prefer to do an e-transfer, you are welcome to do so for amounts of CAD $10+. Just if the system asks you for a control Question and Answer, let me know what is the answer by texting it to my cell phone or through the comment field in the google form (to avoid spam I am not listing my email here).

GoFundMe fees are taken from the ORGANIZER of the campaign:
https://www.gofundme.com/c/blog/gofundme-fees
There is a fee of 2.9% plus $0.30 fee per donation on GoFundMe.

.....................................................................................................................

Q10:  Why did you decide to run this unusual campaign? 

A10:  I actually wanted to run a more typical fundraiser for a charity. However I felt that I prefer to see what is done with the money and it bothers me not to know what exactly have been done with the money (with all respect to the charities).

Because I try to share something for FREE with people, through social media, including vlog and documentaries, it also does something good I hope. Yet I depend on equipment for that. A few of the projects lie on the shelf because of the lack of editing suite.

So I decided to offer my services to boost earning a budget for equipment rather than using a credit card to purchase it.
My goal is to get out of debt and loans, and not to take up any more credit. It got accumulated because of festival organizing, studies, and the expensive cost of living in Canada.  
So I'd prefer to buy equipment out of the money which I've earned rather than taking another loan.
That's why I thought of a fundraiser like that.
I hope it makes sense? Yes it is unusual, however I decided to give it a try.

....................................................................................................................

Q11: I want to help however I do not need the services you mentioned (or maybe not into them right now), is there anything JUST for FUN for myself or a Gift Certificate?

A11:  there are a few options which might feel like fun :). It really depends on a person.

1) many people find it fun to work with MACards even if a session is for a deeper request or decision-making.  Getting to some insights & decisions can be a relief to many people and it often feels rewarding.

2) I also offer for usd $25 creating a birth chart (natal chart) in 3 different software. That can come in handy to have   because not everyone has access to a professional software and knows how to calculate the chart correctly.  Although I have a tutorial on 1 of the software here :) 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5tdNG_RYX8&t=1s

3) a blitz reading with Astrology Dice, Astrology Deck and MACards can be quite fun I think. I have 35+ decks of Metaphorical cards. some of them are for deeper work, some have a resourceful element. You can get some advice for a certain request or question, for the next week / month etc. In some cases I will tell what it is, in others I will help the Client to get insights from the cards. Just keep in mind it is not "fortune-telling" :), as whatever method I use I believe that there is free will as well and that we co-create reality, even if there can be circumstances and predefined things.

Also if you or your friends are into Oracle Cards and Tarot I have a few decks like that as well, however myself I am not trained in Tarot, we can use them as metaphorical cards.  If you haven't seen this video, you can take a look at how it can be done - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbJnHHUHP-8

4) a fun thing can be also for people to know more about their personal planets (astrology). especially Venus & Mars

5) For a longer astrology session (30min or 60min) you can take locational astrology research session.   Whoever is the client fills out a special form (before the session / on booking the session), then I will do research (preparation) and you will 

6) Learning something you (your friends) are interested in can also be fun.

7) Feel free to contact me to discuss what it can be.

Usually gift certificates are $25+ for an adult person and $10+ for a child. It makes sense to have a certificate which would cover at least 40-50% of the service. Or it can be a Gift Certificate for a certain service like a blitz session (mini-session), for an Obereg bracelet or Necklace, or a longer session covering it fully.

..............................................................................................................................

Q12:  Will my name be visible as a contributor? 

A12:  There is an option to post anonymous (the creator of the campaign will see the name but noone else). If you prefer it you can choose that option.  You can still claim an equivalent of the Voucher or Gift Certificate, just you have to let me know within the mentioned timeline what you would like to redeem that contribution to. Keep in mind that some special offers are time sensitive.

Service booking form:
https://www.lifeinglow.com/birthday-fundraiser-2020-form.html

In case my website is not visible in your country, please contact me before June 1st, 2020 (through social media/ whatsapp, skype) and mention the contribution and what you'd like to redeem it form.  Consultations have to be scheduled before December 2020. And those which are on a special offer - payment has to be made before the mentioned deadline.

Feel free to share with anyone who might be interested in taking part in the fundraiser :).

With love <3
