SoN + Smith Family Expansion
$215 of $150,000 goal
I've done as much as I can to try and contribute to communities ranging from writers, Nine Inch Nails fans, World of Warcraft fans and music lovers. I've never used advertising on my websites for revenue. I always funded them myself and only ever made making donations possible.
Now I have a daughter. I am excited about this. However, with the low amount I was making at my previous job, we decided instead of almost paying as much as I made for a babysitter, I would be a stay at home dad. The upside is we can raise our daughter without having to have someone else do it for half of her waking life. The down side is, now we are out that income.
So, what's with the GoFundMe?
The main purpose of this is to try and raise enough money to give my daughter an easier life, as well as try and give a reliable pipe for anybody who I've helped in the past to give some help in return.
The amount would enable me to kick start publishing of a book that is almost complete, an album that I would need a few pieces of hardware to get moving rapidly and have a fair cushion to keep bills paid for long enough to make huge headway while keeping Lillian and the wife comfortable.
I do appreciate your time, and be well!
When there's a website(s) for people to take donations for boobjobs, that have scored literally thousands of people free boobjobs, gofundmes for people wanting a skateboard because i want one, and weed, and any number of other things...
..Yeah, mine is really terrible. Thanks for the huge amount of extra accumulated stress.
Yes. I'm keeping all donations on file and will be giving digital copies of everything I do to those who donate for at least a few releases. Well, probably all releases for those who donate more than $40.
So yes. Any big donations will get liner note recognition.
Here's a link to the copy/paste of her tearing after me. There is vulgarity.
1) I have no expectations of anybody donating at all. So far, the majority of donations are from people I've helped in WoW, or are fans of Symphony of Noise.
2) We are NOT on welfare. Not on WIC, not on any sort of it.
3) I quit my job because the cost of proper daycare was about what I was making, working full time. Not only that, but we want to raise our own kid, not have a stranger do it for 45+ hours a week, minimum.
4) The reason Symphony of Noise (Music + Writing, both of which are done artistically by myself) is included, is because it's one of the ways I would ideally like to make money.
Sorry if anybody was mislead by any individual post without taking the time to read all the posts. There is nothing misleading here. There is no scam.
