Let's Help Eugene Get A New Laptop!

Eugene is a UI/UX designer and a community design advocate in his state, this page is to help raise some money so Eugene can get a new laptop.

He has been having issues securing a job for a while now, and his laptop is really bad which has made the job-hunting process really frustrating, and at the same time, he can't actively participate in his community activities in these times where everything is virtual because he can't afford a good laptop.

We need your support to help raise some money so he can get a new laptop.

Eugene has helped introduce the UI/UX design concept to his community members and helped get them started in their design career.

With the help of this new laptop he can:

1. Comfortably search and apply for more UI/UX design jobs

2. Effectively host online design events for his community members

3. Enhance his design skills

4. Create more designs and help contribute to the wider design community

We believe you can help make this possible for Eugene!

A note from Eriol

Hi there potential donors, this is Eriol Fox :)
I'm a designer of 10+ years now and I met Eugene at Open Source Community African Festival in Lagos Nigeria in February 2020. 
Eugene is an excellent and dedicated designer and is held back by his access to technology that can do what he needs it to do simply in order to start powerfully on his design career. After a short conversation online, I wanted to try to help him by starting this fundraiser from my home-base in the UK in order to get the equipment he needs and ship it safely to Nigeria. This is the first time I'm doing this kind of fundraiser :)
Once we hit our target, I'll be giving regular updates on getting access to the tech Eugene needs and then the process of shipping safely to him with all the receipts! ;)

Thanks for your help in supporting designers globally!
