New Martin for Jeff Bauman
We've done it! Between this page and the amazingly good people around me who have been handing me cash all week we have raised $3000. I'm currently waiting to hear from CF Martin to find out if we can possibly get a discount before I go any further. More details to come, but we made it. Thank you everybody who donated. If you came across this page and would like to donate to help with Jeff's medical bills please visit www.gofundme.com/BucksForBauman
Thank You Everyone! I will try to keep everybody updated as best as possible.
We're trying to raise money to pay for a brand new Martin Acoustic Electric for Jeff Bauman. Jeff was struck tragically by one of the bombs at the Boston Marathon on Monday 4/15/13 and has a long road ahead of him on his way to recovery. As a music lover and an avid guitar player some of his close friends and I believe that having a brand new Martin hanging around will do wonders for his recovery both mentally and physically. Anything you can do to help would be appreciated. Thank You in advance.
Please note that if you're looking to donate to help with Jeff's medical bills please visit www.gofundme.com/BucksForBauman . I will also be donating anything left over after we purchase the guitar over to BucksForBauman as well.
My name is Dave Turner and I've been a co-worker and friend of Jeffs for about 4 years now. I'm from Pepperell, MA and have spent many a summer night working out Beatles and Bob Dylan tunes with Jeff in my backyard. When I saw the pictures of Jeff on the internet (before I heard anything from anybody) I was first in shock however a warm feeling came over me when I realized that regardless of his injuries it appeared as though he ought to be able to still play guitar, and knowing that, I know he'll be alright.
I hope I look on here one day soon and see that you have reached you target of $3000
Here's the Martin Guitar Facebook page. Tell them to make it happen, get Jeff a new Martin, to inspire him as he recovers. https://www.facebook.com/martinguitar

I saw this on the "Bucks for Bauman" page and wanted to be sure that it wasn't missed... JD Miller 2 hours ago I hope this money will help defray expenses and help you realize your goal of becoming an Engineer. I stopped by the CF Martin Guitar factory this morning - it's very near my home - and told them about the other fundraiser which is trying to raise money for a guitar for Jeffrey. I left contact info with a Director of Marketing. I am waiting to hear back. If you can email contact info the company can use, I would appreciate it. Best wishes...JD Miller
