Hi there! My name is Steven and I'm asking for your assistance.
A situation born from necessity - finding ways to support my beautiful family, led me to discover a hidden passion and talent for creating artwork, which I have been printing onto coffee mugs and cushion covers for customers. I have been outsourcing all of my printing needs, which unfortunately leaves me with very little profit to show. What I really need is my own printing set-up, which apart from reducing my costs, will also give me greater control over the quality of my work. A basic set-up costs $1200. For $2000+, I can get a better set-up that will allow me to handle bigger quantities. All I really need though is a basic set-up to get started.
In a political climate where jobs are scarce, we have to take the initiative to make things happen for ourselves. This is where your help comes in. Every donation will be greatly appreciated.For less than the price of a cup of coffee - you can make a difference! In turn, I will be able to employ staff - thus creating job opportunities for others.
A bit about me: I'm a dad to two beautiful young boys (both adopted), and they mean the world to me. I quit my job just after our first son came to live with us. He was barely 8 months old at the time. Our social worker recommended that one of the parents, if possible, spend as much time with him to start forming a bond. Something this beautiful baby had never experienced. No mothers love. No skin to skin contact. Nothing! I would have done (and always will do) anything for my son. So I quit my job. I have no regrets - financially it has been difficult, but worth every sacrifice that was made. He recently turned 6 and is the most amazing little man I know. Polite, courteous, intelligent - just a beautiful Soul.
The idea was to find employment when our son turned two, but the Universe had other things in store for us. We adopted a second child. He was only four months old when he came home, so I once again put any sort of career on hold. Our second son will be turning four in December.
Sadly, as I have discovered, there are no jobs available. It seems that even with all my experience, I'm regarded as unemployable - due to having been out of the workforce for 6 years, and probably age has something to do with it too.
So instead of banging my head against a brick wall, I've decided it's possible to create my own employment and eventually employ others too. I have the drive, the talent and the business know how to make a success of this venture. All I need is some financial backing to make this dream a reality.
