I am a graphic designer in Arizona trying to start a business. I don't have any special cause to champion. To make a long story short, I've had a VERY rough 2013. I will be starting a day job in a few days, but have NO money until then. I was working (after being unemployed for six months) but left that job in anticipation of another couple of jobs that did not pan out. I was also on food stamps (which have ended), and homeless for a LONG time this year. In the midst of all this, I'm trying hard to market and advertise my design services. I'm doing the best I can, and ultimately I will be OK, but this economy is tough. The place where I'm staying is graciously agreeing to defer my rent until I am working. Family and friends have already helped me greatly so far, and now I'm turning to you. If you can send $5, that would be appreciated.
Special offer: Those who donate $100 or more will receive a custom-designed logo, as a PDF file, for their personal or business use. I generally charge a LOT, LOT, LOT more for original logos, so you are getting a DEEP discount. You must be reasonable in your request and give me VERY wide creative freedom and only ask for a total of three revisions before accepting the final version. I am only taking a total of ten of these special clients maximum, and reserve the right to reject the project and return your donation.
Monies raised will at minimum pay for public transportation for my new job, and lunch each day until my first paycheck comes. Anything extra will help with basic living expenses. Thanks in advance.
