Greetings, my name is Gian Avery Crunk. I am raising money for my business start up. The business will be an online social media site, (www.crunklive.com
) that leverages live event promotions and video recaps to engage the audience towards more serious conversations about trending controversial issues. Each month my website will host meaningful live webinar discussions about a social issue we are dealing with; ie. Gun control, Implicit bias, Economic Inequalities, etc. The funds will be used initially, and mainly for business overhead cost. I have already made significant steps so far by securing a website, camera equipment, and industry grade professional software to be a producer in this industry. I now need to secure funds to launch an extensive branding campaign to bring awareness and attention to my website. Also, keeping up with the Americorps spirit, I will be selecting Non-profit causes monthly to donate to apart of my websites "Rebuild the Community Initiative". The website was created to provide a platform for the everyday person to express themselves freely in our society. I am the sites creator and main contributor. I am here to just share crunk stuff to the world and generate meaningful conversations so that we can all grow collectively together. I come from humble beginnings and a single parent household with limited resources. Nonetheless, I have had the privilege to serve in the United States Army, complete my college education, and teach in a public school system via a Non-profit funded by Americorps. I have also worked in the corporate sector selling insurance to families in need. I now desire to lead conversations that will help us understand each other better and love one another as true brothers and sisters. This project is more than business to me, its a lifestyle that I want to share to the world and I am asking for all the help I can get in doing so. Will you help me reach my goal? Any contribution no matter the size will go a long way, and it will mean the world to me that you support and believe in a unified educated society.
