First time I've done anything like this so not exactly sure how this works or where to start. I am a South African living and working in South Africa where the unemployment rate is going up every year.
I came here because I remember how someone used a site similar to this one (gofundme) and was able to raise $100 000 000 for someone that was already a multi-millionaire so that they can be the youngest billionaire. I am not here for something like that though. I am starting this campaign to try and save a company and help people keep their jobs or to begin a startup to where they can have jobs. We have contracts lined up but need to reach the kickoff date and get some equipment but will not be able to reach the kickoff without these funds or at least as close to it as we can get.
I am trying to source these funds through this platform as it is an international platform and can reach a lot of people quickly. I realize there are others out there with bigger problems like health problems, but perhaps there are some good hearted people out there willing to support this. I know it is hard anywhere in the world to get a job, here it is just as difficult if not more so for some people.
We would need the funds as soon as possible. It is a lot of money and I don't know where else I will be able to raise it, but every cent helps. I can not begin to describe how grateful I would be to anyone who is willing to assist me in raising these funds, even if they can only give 1 dollar. I would be eternally grateful and so would everyone who's jobs will be saved.
Thank you for taking the time to even look at my campaign and to those who donate I really appreciate the help.
Kind regards from a worried but hopeful Kobus Heyneke.
