Macbook died, no longer able to record music

I have had my Macbook Pro for about 10 years now. Most of you know that I am extremely passionate about music and recording. I went to school in Chicago to learn how to become an audio engineer, and my MacBook Pro was my most important tool for not only creating content, but also enjoying life and giving me opportunities that I never thought were once possible, professionally and creatively. Unfortunately, my MacBook Pro is no longer running, and this has completely crushed my soul (2020 for ya!). I have done all that i could to repair, but with no success. I have about 25% of the money I need for a replacement in my savings, and just recently today, I posted dozens of ads for selling miscellaneous items of mine, as well as beloved musicial equipment of mine to raise the funds to buy a new computer. Not thrilled about its, but life is about trade offs. Any finacial support would be so greatly appreciated. I was recently just finishing my bands first single, I also was putting finishing touches on my debut solo EP which I anticipated by releasing this Christmas, and most important of all, I was finally starting to lay the ground work and establish myself to opening and operating my own business where I offer music lessons and recording sessions...all in which i need a high-end computer for. This set back has put me in serious panic mode so any donations would be greatly appreciated, more than you could ever know. This is my first GoFundMe and I feel very vulnerable and defeated because it is like I am a charity case now. But music has been the one constant in my life that has kept me focused, happy, creative, and humble. Please help me get back on track if you are able to donate, I will truly be forever grateful. Thank you all and taking the time for reading this. Love, Tom
