Gas Cards for Vets Riverside, CA

Hello Shipmates, I am a Navy Veteran who struggled in the past trying to gain employment. I recently moved from a veterans shelter in Riverside County, California. I have noticed that there are many barriers in preventing some veterans from gaining employment, but one in particular is there inability to go to and from job interviews because of the lack of fuel for there vehicle. This problem is particularly magnified due to the unreliability of public transportation with regards to its available hours and non service in many areas of the county. Funds raised will be used to purchase gas cards in bulk for savings, and the cards will be delivered personally to the veterans to avoid unnecessary and frustrating bureaucratic paperwork.

The Job market seems to be getting better and it is a perfect time for homeless veterans to gain employment and to restore some sense of self-worth.

B&G Smoothies: Feed The Future

We’re asking for your support in our effort to help educate youth about nutrition and provide healthy eating options to communities in need.
B&G Smoothies was created with the primary objective of providing a nutritious breakfast option to students living in communities with limited access to healthy food.

By providing all-natural, healthy breakfast smoothies designed by a certified nutritionist, we can help kids receive their vitamins, nutrients, and a fair chance at learning!

This summer, we launched our mobile smoothie operation licensed in the state of Florida with the purpose of spreading awareness, raising funds for our project, and bringing healthy options to food deserts in Miami.

We are asking for your support and seeking to raise a minimum of $1000 which will allow us to increase our mobility and outreach, to be distributed as follows:

$500 – Generator : Currently we are restricted to renting space at a farmers market, or a local business plaza. A Generator increases our mobility and allows us to pop-up anywhere, giving us better access to attack food deserts and reach everyone.

$100- Signage: Right now we have one large sign, but need a backdrop for our menu, as well as a few signs to make our mobile operation noticeable from a distance.

$150 – Sturdy Tent: Living in south Florida, either the sun is out, or the rain is… Sometimes both! A canopy will help attract customers, while also protecting us from the elements.

$150 – Ingredients and Supplies.

$100 – Taxes & Fees.

As you are reading this, we are LIVE and ON THE STREETS of Miami!

The Journal of a Wannabe Artist

Short Summary

Greetings ladies. Greetings gentlemen. Greetings quadrupeds and cherubs. Welcome to my life.

My name is James Lawson Moore, but you will soon know me as the Wannabe Artist. I am a writer, having just finished my studies in English and literature at my local college. I’ve been writing for most of my life, but now that I’m nearing 30 in a couple of years I figured it was time to take the next step.

Which brings me to what I’ve done here. My first serious attempt at creating a publishable book-length manuscript is practically finished. The Journal of a Wannabe Artist, a collection of poems and prose poems, contains some of my most personal writing, and I think it’s quite good. I have it edited and formatted, and I even have a cover done up. All that remains is to raise some funds so that I can print up copies and begin that next step in writing, from completing a book to publishing it.

What We Need & What You Get

I’m hoping to raise $1000 with this campaign. With the funds, I intend to copyright the book and print copies for sale at book conventions, indie bookshops, libraries, etc. I would also like to have some money left over to go towards a small online promotional campaign for my Facebook writing page as well as for myself as a writer.

The main perk you will be able to get is a copy of the book itself. But that’s not all. I also have copies of previous books I have privately published, books of which there is only a limited supply. Those who choose one of the higher-tier incentives will receive items such as the bound galleys or a copy of the first draft, both of which contain earlier versions of the poems.

The Impact

I am really excited about this book, and I think you will come to love it as much as I have. This book (which is the first in an intended series of books) contains some of what I believe to be the rawest and most real of confessional poetry, along with rather sobering stories in verse form. I believe that this book is a real gem, and I would be estatic to have it out into the world.

Risks & Challenges

There is no real risk those of you who give to the campaign. I am offering incentives such as books and so forth, and I will be sending them your way.

The main challenge is raising the capital to bring this book to press and let it out into the world. With the funds you give I will be able to do that.

Other Ways You Can Help

As a struggling writer and 20-something, I know full well that money can be tight. If you are unable to give (which I fully understand, so no harm or foul), another way you can help is to share this campaign on your Facebook or twitter. Anything to get the word out would be much appreciated.

And that’s all there is to it. Again, thank you so much for taking the time to help me out.

Need an Xmas Miracle in Puerto Rico

This campaign is to raise funds to help my brother rebuild his business after Hurricane Maria destroyed it.

Help My 28 Year Wife Ranjitha For Kidney Transplantation

Sir,
Hi Everyone,
I am B.Rakesh babu, Husband of K.Ranjitha. For the past ten months my Wife has been fighting Chronic Kidney Disease, and my family and I live in constant fear at the prospect of losing her.

This all started in 2017 with a simple blood and urine test. The doctors said that his creatinine levels were through the roof and that his kidneys were slowly failing. It came as brutal shock to us as we were left in a situation where we didn’t know what to do next and had nowhere to turn to. My Wife tried every medicine but nothing worked, and now, the disease has progressed so far that her kidneys have almost completely shut down. We have looked everywhere for a cure but haven’t found any yet.

It breaks my heart every time I see her go for dialysis. She needs a kidney transplant to survive.

We don’t come from a well to do family. I have spent over Rs. 2 lakhs on her treatment. Now, I have nothing left. On top of her, we find one Hospital is ready to do Kidney transplantation But expenditure on her surgery and medicines.

Overall, she needs Rs. 13 lakhs for transplant operation.

But I am at a loss at how I could arrange that. All of my savings have been exhausted and I am struggling to accumulate more. However, I am not ready to give up.

My wife is the bravest and the kindest person I know, and it is only because of her that I have learnt never to give up hope. It is my sincere appeal to you all to help save his life. Please, contribute, the amount doesn’t matter as much as the gesture. Even a little from everyone goes a far way. Also, keep him in your prayers and wishes, and share this fundraiser with others as much as possible since every little action gives us hope to continue fighting and bring him back to us. For this, I will be eternally in your debt.

Thank you for your time.

May God bless us all.

Yours Sincerely,
B.Rakesh babu

Charitable Concerts for People With Disabilities

Charitable Concerts
for Invalids, Pensioners and Veterans of Labor
from All Over Europe!

Hello friends, we are a creative team of the invalids – a family creative tandem “Retro”: Alexander Prokofiev 1962, singer-songwriter, artist-performer, in 1993 graduated from the Conservatory by specialty of orchestra conducting and mother – Raisa Prokofieva, 1937, she is a very talented poet and translator, writes lyrics to songs, ballads and romances, including to works written by her immediately in English and German.

Our family has a related relationship to the roots of the great composer Sergei Prokofiev. At present time we live in Hungary and are actively engaged in our charitable creative work for the elderly public from the whole Europe.

In our work union already during more than long 20 years we have been working on a creative Project of our entire creative life named as “Retro Songs and Romances in the Language of Foreign Listeners” in order to convey to the hearts of listeners all over the world all the extraordinary beauty and depth of the content of music-song culture of our fathers and grandfathers.
With our unique concert program we have repeatedly and very successfully performed in 10 international languages in front of European audiences, where our tandem “Retro” was accepted with great enthusiasm by the public from different countries!

A couple of years ago Raisa Nikolayaevna suddenly got very serious leg injury in the femoral neck. Within a few months after the trauma she could not get out of bed. Our future creative activity was in jeopardy!
Being a woman of very strong will, Raisa clenched her pain and weakness in her fist, literally, even while lying in bed, continued to write lyrics for our new songs, and we prepared our concert program – composed songs, self-produced music tracks, clips, and all it was primarily for the category of citizens who are most in need of our with you attention, it’s retirees, veterans of labour, the same as we are invalids.

Despite the fact that we ourselves are a family of people with disabilities, as well as on our illness and health problems, for the past many years we continue to engage in our charitable activities aimed especially at the elderly – we give a lot of concerts free of charge for this category of citizens, performing in front of the disadvantaged people in various rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, Veterans Homes, libraries and so on not only at home but also in many European countries. Due to her incredible superhuman efforts Raisa Prokofieva stands up and literally overcoming her pain is going to the concerts which absolutely are charitable!

Thus, due to the successful combination of our knowledge in the fields of music and Language, we bring into the world the good and light through the magical power of art and the fruits of our long and painstaking creativity for the benefit of other people!
Currently Raisa Prokofieva takes a long and not easy period of rehabilitation treatment after her injury, but yet at the same time she does not cease to engage in creative work for the benefit of the same persons with disabilities.

But you will agree, my friends, that in order to benefit other people and to do good for their benefit, we ourselves, in turn, also need to be healthy, strong, energetic and mobile!

Therefore:
1. First and foremost, we need to ensure a radical rehabilitation treatment of Raissa, but it is very difficult for us to do without outside sponsorship, as we are both disabled, and in addition, we do not have any other option of any financial income besides old-age and disability pensions. Therefore, we somehow still need to attract sponsors and raise funds in order to pay such considerable expense to do this!
2. For the development of the creativity also not small costs requires, we just do not alone overcome. The concerts, which we organize and conduct for the disabled and senior citizens, by themselves, as they say “by the lips alone,” are not implemented. It is necessary to buy not cheap musical instruments, expensive amplifying equipment, different accessories and many other things that also can not to pulled ourselves.
3. We are needed not small expenses, too, in order to record our new art songs in a studio, so we dream of our own mini-Records studio at home in order to be able to perform audio recordings more sparingly in order that then to present them to our pensioners in the form of gifts of the audio albums of our creative team.

We are thrilled with all our soul and heart and call upon you, my friends, to give us all possible warm assistance and thus to take part in our creative work together with us for the benefit of all unhappy persons with disabilities! We hope really so much you do not refuse us, and we will still be able to continue our charitable work for the benefit of all people living on our old good Planet!!!

Creative tandem “Retro” thanks warmly all of you for Your good and kind support and sponsorship absolutely in all sizes as much as possible!

We love all of You, dear brothers and sisters, so much forever!!!

Charitable Concerts for Invalids in Europe

Hello, friends! Let’s make more beautiful and rich life of elderly people and invalids together!

We are a creative team of the invalids – a family creative tandem “Retro”: Alexander Prokofiev 1962, singer-songwriter, artist-performer, in 1993 graduated from the Conservatory by specialty of orchestra conducting and mother – Raisa Prokofieva, 1937, she is a very talented poet and translator, writes lyrics to songs, ballads and romances, including to works written by her immediately in English and German.

Help me to fix my room after Maria

I’m Joel, 26, and I’m from Puerto Rico. After Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico I lost everything in my house including my room. I want to fix it before Christmas and with your help I’m going to be able to do it. Thanks a lot. I really appreciate it.

HELP A FAMILY GET BACK ON THEIR FEET

I’m a mother of 4 beautiful boys 9, 5, 4, and 1. I am also pregnant with twins due january 8th and I had to leave my home, job, and most of my belongings in florida because of Hurricane Irma. Two of my boys have mental and medical issuse and i couldnt risk being without electricity so as fast as i could i got out of there and came to chicago where I’m currently staying with family. And for obvious reasons cant last much longer. And as you can imagine with 4 kids and being towards the end of a high risk pregnancy saving isn’t exactly an easy task especially on what was my income but I’ve managed to make it this far. But Ms. Irma has really kicked me in the behind. I have nothing but the clothes I came to chicago with and i have found myself in a situation where I need as much help as possible because i cannot work until cleared by my doctor. So with a humble heart, faith in god and humanity I ask for your help to get us back on our feet before holidays. Please anything would help either being contributing to this gofundme even just a dollar or donationing baby items. Thank u so much for u time and help!

Iron Legend – Birth of a Hero

Hey everyone!

I’m Kyle Ransford, I’m owner of Indie game studio Kyle Studios.

This project is for anyone who wants to support development and the creation of new games and gaming live streams.

There will be other games I’ll be working on and a current game. The current game is a 2D Side Scroller titled Iron Legend: Birth of a Hero.

3D games are cool and all. But there’s something about 8-bit, 16-bit style games I like. And I plan on taking inspiration from the games I played during the 90’s and create a series and a franchise of games and characters.

As the project goes on, more info will be revealed. Some character names and aspects of the game are “Working Titles or Names” and may not be final.

The target OS for the Steam version is Windows and other platforms are planned.

Currently, the Wii U version will only be available in the USA.
