Please help me raise funds for my woodwork company.
Having lived with hearing loss( a permanent bilateral, moderate to severe Sensori-neural hearing loss) since primary schooling, one of the most misunderstood and invisible disabilities in the world, led me to suffer from depression. I found myself becoming more antisocial, isolating from society in an attempt to avoid having to constantly explain my condition, sometimes repetitively to the same people. It doesn't really seem to get better.
I have recently found healing in using my hands to create small wood pieces, engraved in affirming scripture verses and encouraging quotes/phrases . There is indeed healing in art and craft as research has shown, with this in mind I intend to help other people with similar problems by offering art lessons for all age groups. Another factor is that it is becoming far more challenging in the corporate sphere with my condition. It's not impossible, but growth can be limited because of hearing loss, especially in my country where the general public and government is still lagging behind in catching up with transformation.
I need funds to the amount of +/-R200 000.00 which will cover the following so I can add more products and expand my new business.
* wood and other materials
* woodworking tools and equipment
* a computer
* miscellaneous expenses
* website and camera
* business cards and marketing
