I am so in shock at the outpouring of support from all of you, and I don’t know why??? After all, whenever I’ve needed your help…or anyone else in our close-knit community needed your help…we’ve been there for each other.
This is what makes woodworking such an amazing hobby and way of life, the closeness of friends and the generosity that comes with it!
So what’s next? Well for one, hopefully a new website is coming much sooner than I originally anticipated. It obviously won’t be up in a few days, but over the coming weeks and months I’ll be working closely with my website designer to create something I hope everyone will enjoy visiting on a regular basis.
Like I said in my original post to announce the fundraiser, “It’s never easy asking for financial assistance from anyone, especially family and friends…” but all of you have made that discomfort so much easier to bare. Thank you!
Because the goal amount was reached in such a short amount of time, I hope you don’t think it’s greedy of me to keep the campaign open for a little longer? At this point, any donations that come in are icing on the cake. But that just means I could possibly have funds to help with the further upgrading items like recording equipment, cameras, hosting services, and maybe even offsetting travel costs to visit conferences and shows to meet and greet with all of you in person AND of course get great content for the show.
Thank you again! I really can’t believe this happened as quickly as it did.
