Mary's 50th Birthday, Pandemic Edition

Alright, you all know her and love her.  From helping to start SAIL to taking our kids to Odyssey of the Mind World to just being there when we needed a shoulder.  She fixes our computers and cries when she watches Legally Blonde.  She helps us and guides us and we love her for it.

Next month is Mary's 50th birthday.  I had hoped to give her the birthday party she deserves.  The Universe had other ideas.  Not only will she be skipping her regular Christmas party this year, but her birthday party is canceled too.


2020 has been bad enough.  I don't want her to remember this birthday as a sad one.  No family, no friends, no party.  I have an idea, but I need your help.

For years she's been going on about this GlowForge thing.  I don't get it, but I'm just a boy.  Something about adding beauty to the world, even in the dark.  You know Mary, she's always crafting something.  Jewelry, hats, cards, t-shirts, whatever.  It's her passion.  And this will make her happy.

Well, the GlowForge is not cheap.  So, she's accepted that she will probably never have one.  I have not.

Mary is my best friend and the love of my life.  Honestly, she's my only friend.  But she is more fortunate.  She has you.

Please, whatever you can pitch-in.  Any amount helps.  If you're not in the position to give, I know many of us are not, then please help by spreading news of the campaign to your social circles.  

That's it.  Thank you.  I appreciate it.


GlowForge Product Page 

She's asking for the GlowForge Basic and the air filter so she can use it indoors.  

Tax, delivery, and everything comes to about $4,155. 

Depending on the response to this campaign, I'd like to upgrade her to the GlowForge Plus.  We'll see.
