What the F Stands For startup equipment

My name is James, I reside in Oklahoma. I have spent the last 13 years managing, mentoring, and motivating those around me whether it be in my career or personal life. I am the founder of a blog called What the F Stands For. I created this site to combine all my years of coaching, managing, and mentoring into a type of stewardship. My partners are Stephen and Jon. We are a new blog site trying to get our feet off the ground. Our goal at WTF is to establish a community of fathers and allow them a place to grow by expression along with enabling them to be present and build stronger relationships with their children and to also better themselves. We are living in a time where 19.7 million children, more than 1 in 4, live in a household that has an absent father, this is according to the U.S. Census Bureau.  I understand that sometimes men do not get the chance to be the father they wanted to due to circumstances. But we must remember we cannot allow the circumstance to make the man. So why are we seeking funds? We want to bring this issue to the nation by creating a podcast that will reach more people. We want to create a platform that will allow not only fathers but parents a resource to utilize. We want to support them and be a resource. We want to spread joy, laughter, encouragment and knowledge. To fully be able to do this, we are asking for a little help with the start up costs. We have most of the necessities but are still needing some equipment, like a podcast production console and a 4k camcorder. This is a call to the men of the world to step up to the plate and be a father. It is important that we are Undeniably Fathers and be present so that we can help create a healthy culture in our family and our children Mr. Webster defines undeniable as unquestionably or genuine. Undeniably Fathers to me means being genuine in the time we spend with our kids, making them laugh, show them what love should look like by how we treat them and their mothers and others. This means so much to my team and myself. We would never be able to truly thank you in the fashion in which you would deserve but it would be so much appreciated. We would love to do big things! If it is on your heart to give, please remember that this is to help create a podcast and platform. Please allow our dream to become a reality. A favorite quote of mine is “A father is one of the most unsung, unpraised, unrecognized, and yet one of the most valuable assets in our society." How true is that statement, especially the state society is in right now?
