Keep Karma Care LLC Open
Please help me get the funds to relocate and keep Karma Care LLC open. My lease is up at the end of April and I have to move out on April 28th. I have a chance to get a new location at a better rental price and it is a larger space too, but I had a lot of medical expenses this year when I was hospitalized in January and had to use all my savings. I need funds to help pay the first month rent, the deposit, to get a new sign, to pay the liability insurance, and for the movers. I want to keep my shop going so I can continue to serve my friends and customers by offering great service and affordable prices. I quit my full-time job in October of 2016 and haven't had a paycheck since I left that position because it was effecting my health. I already had the shop going on a part time basis and I wanted to be able to offer great prices to my customers, so I went full-time and threw everything I had in it- heart and soul. I truly believe in holistic services and alternative treatments and found that in the metaphysical community. I love being able to have my four-legged companion here at the shop with me. I almost gave up when I lost Marshall in November, but now I have Sky as of 3 weeks ago. She is still learning and adjusting to being a shop dog, but she is sweet and has great energy. If I can't continue then I will be forced to re-enter the regular workforce and wouldn't be able to have her with me all day and she really needs me to be there with her, especially through this transitional period. She is really enjoying meeting everyone. My friendships that I have developed as a result of the shop mean everything to me and I don't want to lose contact with these people. When I relocated to this area in 2006 I worked at a treatment center and never had the opportunity to meet people because of my job and that continued as I switched to other jobs, including working in the correctional facilities doing mental health. I missed being able to have real friendships with people that had similar interests and beliefs. I love being able to offer biomat treatments at an affordable rate because I know how if not for the biomat I wouldn't be able to walk and want others to be able to benefit from the benefits of the biomat. I even give discounts to cancer patients and veterans that need the biomat treatment and also for counseling services. I feel people who are having a hard time shouldn't be put into financial hardship too. I also love teaching classes and also being able to offer classes that some of my friends teach and the new space would allow that better since there is more room. I truly believe I have the best customers and friends anyone could ask for and I want to be able to offer them whatever they want. Many know how I will seek out a great deal for them if there is something they have been wanting and couldn't find and I charged nothing extra for this service. I've also done layaway for regular customers so they could get what they wanted but couldn't always afford at the moment and most small businesses don't do that. There would be no way for me to express in words how grateful I would be for any help you give, but I will continue to express my gratitude by offering you great/affordable prices, quality merchandise, and by being honest and offering you personal service. Sky would be grateful too and if Marshall was still here he would greet you and let you know how much he appreciates you by leaning on you. As long as Karma Care is open I will still have a part of Marshall with me because he was not only my heart and soul, but also the heart and soul of the shop. Thank you for being my friend and customer and for your patronage. Namaste.+ Read More
Hi Everyone. After just 4 days I have had 8 people contribute and have gotten the fund to just under 15% of the goal. I appreciate everyone who has given and/or shared the link. Please continue to do so. I am working hard on my end trying to raise funds in various other ways too. I have faith that I will be able to continue my dream and have my shop. After leaving the regular workforce in October of 2016 and coming to work full-time at the shop I'm not sure I could go back to the other. It would break my heart being separated from Sky and my friends/customers. I know it would effect my health in a negative way. With the shop I can adjust things as I need to in order to manage my chronic back issues and pain. In a regular job I couldn't do that. It would drastically effect my mental health and stress level if I had to go back to the other, especially since I would miss everyone so much. I love my customers and meeting new people. Yesterday I had 4 new customers and it was so fun meeting and talking with them. I've actually had more new customers in the last month than I had since I've been in this location and a lot is due to referrals, from my ad in the Add Sheet, and both my Facebook page and my Website. My customers have voiced they don;t want me to close with quite a few of the new ones saying I can;t close because they just found me. If you truly believe there is a need for an AFFORDABLE Metaphysical Shop that has something for everyone then please support me in my endeavor. If you do I promise to continue to provide affordable prices and give you personal service. I want to also be able to add more classes or workshops.
