I'm Di Goodwin, founder of BlueSky Designs. Our mission is to design products that make it possible for people with disabilities to do more, and do it independently. Our customers tell us our Mount'n Mover products are "life-changing". Who are we to argue? With movable mounts, people with speech devices, ipads, phones and trays can move them where and when they want to. Other mounts are static, and limit a person. A mount that moves expands their independence. Learn more at mountnmover.com
Covid-19 hit us hard. We partner with therapists and service providers around the world who conduct one-on-one evaluations with the people who need our product. With schools closing, clinics limiting client visits and stay-at-home orders, our sales dropped 80%.
Then, our building caught fire during the Minneapolis protests. Though we recovered all our products and resumed operations, restoration has not begun and the building has mold in areas that suffered water damage. We may need to move.
We are a small mission-driven business and don't have deep pockets. We created this GoFundMe campaign to enable BlueSky Designs to survive this downturn. With your help, we can continue increasing people’s independence and improving their lives. We'll transform your gifts into the gift of independence, providing 50 people with our life-changing products. It's a Win-Win.
In this time of social distancing, independence and the ability to communicate with others is critical. Help us expand a person's possibilities. Spread the word! Share links to our GoFundMe and the online application for the Great Mount'n Mover Give-away.
Our commitment: For every $2000 raised, BlueSky Designs will outfit a person in need with a Mount’n Mover system.
Earlier this summer, friends and family of our founder raised $11k for Di’s birthday, funding 5 mounts! We are having a ton of fun with this, telling people we can help them move past the funding hurdle. We'll start sharing their stories soon!
