Building DJ a healing Handpan musical instrument

Hey everyone.

My name is Jon Heaven. I am a handpan builder in British Columbia, Canada.
See my YouTube channel if you don't know what that is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9tY7rFAyF3g
I used to build to order, but I would like to start doing so for people who need them the most. 6 months ago I made a new friend named DJ. A very genuine, great guy with a lot of common interests. Unfortunately he has been going through a struggle for a while now with multiple surgeries and chemo after finding out he has an aggressive form of cancer. I would like to build one of my instruments for him as a gift to help him during his healing journey. Handpans are known to be very therapeutic and healing, and I know that the gesture would make an impact in his life. Earlier this winter I crashed my truck and damaged it due to some black ice. Knowing I needed a way to get to and from my part time job, which is where we met, DJ gave me an awesome deal below market value on a replacement vehicle that he had, out of the kindness of his heart, because he knew I was short of funds. Naturally I would like to repay his generosity, and thought of this idea, which I plan to execute whether this fundraiser succeeds or not. With your help the process could be expedited and impact my individual financial position less, which is what I am hoping to achieve with this fundraiser. Essentially I need your support in order to perform my craft and cover the costs in the giving away of one of my hand built instruments. The 1500 sought by this GoFundMe is simply to cover the materials and time spent creating, and foregoes any extra profit I would normally collect. I hope you resonate with this and wouldn't mind throwing a few bucks in the pot. I'm sure we can fund the building of this handpan for DJ. If your donation to this campaign is not anonymous, I plan to engrave the list of donators on the bottom side of the instrument as a special easter egg on it. Anyway, I have never raised funds before in my life, so let's see how this goes. Thank you kindly for reading this far and potentially contributing to this good cause.
All the best in 2021. Much love.
