Help me to continue making videos

Hello Everyone,

My name is Gunnar "Chinatown" Biniasch.   I am the producer of the Foiling Basics, Foil Review and my own VLOG Video series.

I love producing videos that help and inform others about the sports I do.  Kitesurfing, Foilboarding, SUP, SUPFOIL to name a few.

I am not paid for these videos.   I want to be 100% honest in my reviews and charging the brands money to make them would end up compromising my honest opinion of a product.  However, this creates a dilemma.  I have to finance all the camera and editing equipment privately.

My 2012 Macbook Pro Retina has been my workhorse for all these years, and is now starting to fail.  I don't know how much longer the old girl will hold up. Just going out and buying a new Macbook Pro is not an option at the moment.  I have all my savings invested in my new Shop and just don't have the spare cash for a new Macbook  and that beings me to my request.

I always find it hard to ask for help, but if my Laptop dies, that will be the end of my videos for a while, until I can afford to replace her.  So that is why I have gone the crowdfunding route, to see if I can secure the future of my video channels. 

The goal is €4000* Euros.  I believe this is an achievable goal and am grateful for any help.  

Every backer giving more than 20 Euros will receive a free Foiling Basics T-Shirt if the goal is reached.  There will also be cool gifts for higher backers.

Thank you for your support 

(*the goal on GoFundme is €4500, because they take 8.55% from every donation)
