This is a request for help towards the “Tyce Needs A Vehicle Fund”. In three weeks, I've raised $1100 contributions to this campaign and through posts on Facebook. I had hoped to raise funds without using a crowdfunding site, but many trusted friends have urged me to go this route.
The most functional vehicle for my use combined with business use would be a minivan. Here in Vermont, a decent one with good mileage on it is about $4000. The campaign total takes into account campaign fees, taxes, tags & insurance.
A vehicle of any type is essential if my business, Bongo & Blanket's Bakehouse, is to survive. I believe in the business, in the product, and, most importantly, believe in myself running this business.
The reality of my situation is I have no money to contribute to this myself. I have gone through all my savings, stocks, and insurance to get the business to where it is today, and must...MUST...move out of my present living situation pretty much 3 weeks ago.
I have the drive to turn around my present situation, I just don’t have the financial means. This is why I’ve turned to you.
Would you be able to share any amount toward my goal? All money raised is deposited into a savings account in a separate institution from my business accounts. All money is strictly for this vehicle purchase and related costs & fees.
Perhaps you have a minivan or similarly functional vehicle you would consider donating, lending, or selling me.
It is so very difficult to ask for this assistance as I was brought up to put shoulder to the wheel; nose to the grindstone; carry on and get the job done. Well, I’ve come to the point I can no longer do it by myself.
I will be successful. The business will be successful. I will pay this generosity forward.
Thank you again.
