As a storyteller and journalist, I inform, hopefully educate, entertain and amuse with the articles, advertorials, columns and training material that I generate from my one-man-band freelance copywriter business, Prime Time Penguin Unlimited LLC.
But I need your help in continuing to do so. In this age of technology, I’ve fallen behind due to aging, limping and yes, dying equipment. I’ve decided to ask for help to procure a new(er) laptop to create my work.
As a Mac-man, my business has been firmly grounded in Apple products with IPhone and such so any suggestion of moving to a PC platform just isn’t a feasible one but I do appreciate that thought.
With this GoFundMe page, I’m seeking to raise $6,000 to find a new(er) MacBook Pro laptop, back-up system and other needed office supplies. Ideally, I would like to have a desktop and a laptop as in addition to my writing I am working on video and audio projects and am learning how to create WordPress websites.
If you could sponsor me with a donation toward this goal my intention is to give back as well:
· For any $50-dollar donation, you will receive an hour of writing work for an advertorial, web content or any other project you may have.
· For any $100-dollar donation, you will receive two hours of writing work.
· For any $500-dollar donation, I will create a WordPress website and populate it with 2-4 pages of content. (Monthly or annual hosting costs are not included.)
· For any $1,000-plus donation, a website and number of pages to be determined as well as writing content for other projects will be discussed.
Any amount donated is welcomed and appreciated. As I'm working on a Mac Mini that restarts and hangs up quite a few times a day, I'd like to find a new(er) laptop as soon as possible.
My work can be found with a simple Google search that will take you across pages from the Clarion Ledger newspaper, the Delta Business Journal, Delta Magazine, The Daily Tribune, The Oakland Press, The Macomb Daily and several others. I enjoy giving back with my skills as I volunteer my time with Upton Elementary School to train fifth graders on how to put together a news cast for the school. You can see that on ustream.tv and search for Upton. I also work as a Public Address Announcer for the local city league football and cheer program and for local high schools.
Please take a moment to consider helping me take the next step in my writing journey and career. I would greatly appreciate it.
