Our Glass House, Cincinnati, Ohio
When I posted my YouTube video on June 3, 2015 ( https://youtu.be/NbbFiTMn_ok) roughly 30 minutes after I was attacked by the three young men and two young women who were attempting to break into the family home I had been renovating into what is now Our Glass House, I had no idea their actions would serve as the catalyst for a great opportunity for change in the Evanston community.
As we move forward, Our Glass House will be relying on your continued financial and community support. Any donation would be extremely appreciated, and will go directly to restoration costs, application and planning fees, food for volunteers, and other start-up and ongoing expenses.
Hey there, I see you'd like to teach music engineering and computing. If you need some live one on one or group support, I'm available. I'll gladly help by giving classes live or by recording videos. If you are interested in getting together feel free to reach out. This is important for everyone. I can't wait to see how far you'll go.
If YOU NEED a motivational speaker for these kids , I am willing to donate unlimited hours of Common Sense therapy. I can also donate blood and sweat labor if you need help with restoration. I'll also cook and serve (as well as teach them to cook and prepare ) any help you need with this project feel free to reach out to me.
I'm very sorry that this happened to you Ronald. We are a hurt people. Suffering still from generations of loss, abuse, turmoil, and misguidedness due to the woes of inhumane activities. While we have our external enemies, we have our internal ones as well and we cannot let them deter us from being who we need to be for our people and messing it all up for the ones who want to see a change. Don't let that stop you from being the man you need to be. The enemy and it's minions will not have this day. It's our time once again. I'll send my donation along with positive energy your way, healing from this event both physically and mentally. You have people who are in support of what you are doing and want to see you succeed. Realize that many of your people have your back. ♥
Hi Ronald, I love what you're doing here and your story is incredibly inspiring. I have been involved at Evanston Academy for two years as a head coach of the Girls on the Run program, so Evanston has a very special place in my heart. If you need any hands these next few weeks, I'm right around the corner in Norwood. Once you're ready to get classes up and running, I'm more than willing to share skills/training in Photoshop or basic Microsoft Word programs (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). I'd also be willing to help with creative writing . Email me at email@example.com! Keep your head up; we need more people like you!
Hey man. I'm going to do a fundraiser for you on my live stream on twitch. I almost cried with you bro. We need more people like you. I'll be doing it Sunday night EST. I'm not trying to self promote but want to use my community to help you. Twitch.tv/gammofly. Stay strong friend.
Yo bro, where are you located. Im a part of a motivationl/ministry group called "The Grace Tour". I've requested you on Facebook, I want to help. Your video touched me chief, we need more men like you to lead our ppl and represent what so many do not understand. I hope you recieve my request and we can get in touch. Would love to partner with you. Blessings and love. - Brian
You will want to file that 501c3 ASAP so that you can protect your investment. You need to insure your business against theft and vandalism, and be able to write off the cost of things that are needed for your business. You want to make sure that all your hard work doesn't turn into a bottomless money pit. Nice job...and sorry this happened to you.
I can not help out financially, but I can help out by spreading the word. You are trying to do something for a group of people that many are not willing to do. I applaud you for that. I have a feeling in no time you'll have the financial backing you need. :) Thank you for restoring some faith into humanity.
Word of unsolicited advice, get someone else you trust to follow up and be point of contact for all of these wonderful offers. This person can be invaluable in helping get the offers organized so you can look over them later. They can also help to decide what's going to be best for your project and which ones are more time sensitive than others. It'll help you keep your eye on the big picture. Congrats on going viral.
