Men of Steel: From Inmates to Truck Drivers

My name is Matthew Garnett and I have been driving trucks for going on ten years now.  My hope is to use my skills to train former inmates in the fine art of truck driving.  Toward this end, we are seeking venture capital and guidance in obtaining said capital.  Put simply, we need professional help!  Help from someone who can both write a business plan for our vision as well as a pitch it to those who might get us off the ground. 

As of now, we have a donor willing to donate half of the fee for the business expertise we need and what we're shooting for here is to raise the first half of the fee which is $1800.  I am convinced that given the state of our country, the time for such an endeavor is now.  So, please donate as soon as you are able. 

Think of it.  We can take guys who have served time and quickly and easily teach them a trade that will pull them out of the cycle of the American criminal justice system.  If these men commit themselves, they could one day own their own trucking business.  And what a story that would be.....from inmate to business owner. 

We greatly appreciate any donation - no matter how small - to our initial cause here!
