New Business Start Up _shooter_rughi_

My name is John Carughi, I served as an Infantryman and Marksmanship Instructor in the United States Marine Corps, and I’m a native of Washington State. Having returned to my home state after serving my beloved country, I have fallen in love with business as it presents a new outlet for me to share my passion, and to share really good stories. This GoFundMe campaign will be used for just that —  business startup expenses that cover branding, identity design, labels & packaging, website design/build, and ultimately, brand deployment. Need I mention that times are tough? With that said, I am asking for help from everyone out there. I am extremely grateful for your genuine and generous support!


To be crystal clear with regard to how proceeds will be utilized: 

I am the beneficiary of these funds. 
They will be deposited into my business account and used to pay for creative & digital services already contracted
Campaign funds will be used exclusively to pay for branding, identity design, labels & packaging, and website design/build.
My business has a hard launch date of 8/21, and as of now, we’re on target to hit that mark. We continue to navigate this journey of a lifetime with with focus, determination and an overwhelming desire to continue in service of America and its people. 


I believe in what I am doing, and we are close to reaching our major milestone in just three weeks time. Join me in this venture! Again, THANK YOU for you support, kind words, motivation and continued encouragement.


Semper Fidelis,
