My name is Jay Strnad. I'm 18 years old and I'm a professional DJ from the Czech Republic.
Being a DJ in the Czech Republic used to make me enough money to pay my rent and pay for my living expenses. But recently everything changed.
About a week ago on one of my gigs an alcoholic owner of the club i used to play in smashed my laptop against the floor. Most of the clubs in Czech Republic are BYOE ( Bring Your Own Equipment ) which means that i need to bring my DJ controller and my laptop to almost every club that i play in.
I tried every single possible thing to make the owner of the club to pay for my laptop, but was unable to do so because of an agreement that I signed.
Now when I don't have my equipment, I can't continue being a DJ, which means that I can't make money to pay for my rent and my living expenses. Which unfortunately means that i will get evicted the next month for not being able to pay for my rent.
I tried to apply for a job, but most of the jobs in my area have a 2 month hiring period.
And this Is why I'm here.
If we reach the goal of 500$ I will be able to buy a new Laptop sufficient enough to smoothly run the Rekordbox software necessary for my performance.
If we surpass the goal, every single dollar will go to more DJ equipment.
Thank you so much for your kindness :)
