Stories From Holocaust GoFundMe

Steven’s current project focuses on Eva Mozes Kor, a woman who not only survived Auschwitz, but also the tortures of Joseph Mengele. Eva’s is a story of hope, of forgiveness, and the power of life.

More About The Project

There are 3 main aspects of the project.

1) First, Steven will be visiting with individuals who survived the Holocaust. His hope is to have them share their story, as Eva did, based off two questions- questions of hope.

2) Record and share those stories with the world.

3) Third, to bring these survivors to the community of the El Paso, Texas so that others may meet with them, sit with them, and hear their stories first hand.

The reason for the GoFundMe is in order to achieve these three objectives he needs help from the community. He can’t make these things happen by himself.

What Does Steven Want?

Here’s a detailed breakdown of what is needed and why it’s needed.

– $5,000 for travel expenses to meet with survivors, in person.

– $5,496.95 for the Nikon D850 Filmmaker’s Kit. Better equipment, better video.

– $479.94 for editing software.

– $2,599.00 for Apple MacBook Pro.

Total cost of this project is $13,575.86. That’s what the GoFundMe goal is set at.

Are There Any Rewards?

Yes, there are rewards for this very important project. Any contribution gets your name in the video credits. $25 gets you a video copy of one of the interviews, prior to release, as well as screen credit. $50, or more, you will receive a copy of the first five (5) interviews, as well as screen credit, and a copy of the magazine that they plan to publish in connection with this project. $1000 or more will get you all previous plus you (Donor) will become a part of the production. You’ll actually be interviewed in person, or over the phone. Interviews may become part of a special part of the film(s) at the end.

Conclusion

What makes this project different is these are not just stories of survival, but the focus is more about hope. These important stories have already been shared with groups such as Yad Vashem, the Shoah Foundation, and others. Help bring these powerful stories to life and consider funding Steven’s GoFundMe today.

I’ve debated whether or not to feature GoFundMe campaigns on this blog. On CashSherpa I feature a lot of crowdfunding campaigns specifically from Patreon and Kickstarter, but rarely GoFundMe. My goal with featuring these crowdfunding campaigns is to get the word out for new cool ideas, new tech, and to make a difference in someones life. That’s why I decided to feature this college students campaign.

The student goes to Full Sail University and wants to major in arts, where he creates digital artwork.

View artwork on Instagram:

The Challenge

“The reason I need your funds is because my parents used me as an endorser for two of their coworkers without telling me, which they used to fund their two coworkers schooling knowing that I also use financial aid that I am trying to pay off which is just making my loan amount bigger and I am 19. Consequently, I pay the sum of $4,500 every month ($1,500 and $2,000) on the student loans for myself and the two coworkers.”

GoFundMe College Art

The Solution

“To clear pay off some of these debts, I had to sell off my MacBook pro, my digital tablet which I use to make my art on which is also a career for me, and a few other precious personal belongings.”

Of course selling these items wasn’t enough and that’s the reason for this GoFundMe campaign in the amount of $150,000.

Conclusion

Any amount will be appreciated by this college student. No donation is too small. Best of all anyone that donates to this campaign will receive free custom artwork. That’s a reason to give to this campaign right there. Consider donating to the Magnet Art GoFundMe campaign today.

Have you ever desired a return to the nostalgia of your youth? The horror and scifi that would air with late night horror hosts like Creature Feature, Ghost Host, or whoever your local host was? Sure they were bad movies but they were so good too. Now is your chance. Someone is creating a new channel called the Nerd Broadcasting Network. A channel that will resurrect many of those old films as well as allowing producers a chance to get new independent horror and scifi onto your television. The NBN is ready to go with over 100 films and a dozen series already contracted. They even have connections with someone who has access to over 20,000 films. The only hiccup is that they are still on celluloid and it costs money to convert them to digital. That’s where the Nerd Broadcasting Network comes in, they need your support now on Go Fund Me.

What a crazy list and it is only the beginning. Steve Wollett, the president of Nerd Rage News Inc. is putting together some old and yet new. Uncut films of yore that will titillate and excite the diehard fan. There of course is a catch. He is short on the funds needed to fulfill the dream and make this channel a success. He needs about $50,000 in order to go live. Contracts are secure and the groundwork has been done but in order to get the app development and films digitized he needs a little help. As such he is running a GoFundMe to raise some of the capital needed. Go check it out and by the end of July we just might get the channel of our dreams.

Ewaste Recycler Needs Truck GoFundMe

  • Comments Off on Ewaste Recycler Needs Truck GoFundMe

I’m a big fan of my local electronics recycler. Especially when I had to get rid of my giant 27″ tube TV to make room for my flat screen. There’s a team of brothers in Harrison, AR that need your help on GoFundMe to buy a truck for their Ewaste business.

Evage LLP is an Ewaste recycling facility that has been established for 2 years. The goal is very reasonable at $5,000. If the Go Fund Me goal is met will be enough to purchase a box truck to further expand the business.

Where Can I Contribute? 

https://www.gofundme.com/evage

Their Story

“22 months ago my brother and I opened a recycling company to provide a cheap and convenient way to dispose of electronics. At first, we believed that we would receive only household electronics, which are easily manageable in a half ton Ford F150 like the one in the photo.”

Ford F 150

“Soon after opening, however, we learned that the demand was just as high on bulky commercial and industrial electronics, as well. The truck, as much of a beast as it is, is starting to show serious signs of wear and we are just recently recovering from a bear commodity market.”

“We Need A Bigger Truck”

“In December of 2016, we landed our first big client which has recycled about 15 loads such as the one seen above and still has many more to come. We have so many uses for a box truck that the possibilities are endless it seems.”

Box Truck Help

“We could use it for our commercial accounts, helping customers with accessibility issues get to recycle large electronics, host recycling drives to increase awareness in the community and other communities, safely unload into our warehouse space without having to lift everything onto our dock, host community trash clean ups for the Great American Cleanup, ship our product for less, and have a more professional presence to land more clients. If anyone would like to donate to a valuable environmental cause, your help would be greatly appreciated. We would like to continue to keep our service cheap and convenient as recycling should be.”

Evage LLP needs your help to expand their services. Help them purchase the much needed box truck in order to keep up with demand.

The Complete Story

“We recently got married and immediately moved to Utah. On the way to Utah our car broke down in the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere and we ended up having to pay for a 50-mile tow, a new alternator, a hotel room, and a rental car. We did not plan on having these expenses and it has really put us in a tough financial situation. I am asking for some help to get out and back on our feet. We are both in college and trying our best to make it month to month. We sincerely appreciate anything you can give to help. Anything extra donated will go to help us pay for college. We are both working 20+ hours a week and full-time students. If you can’t donate a share would be much appreciated.”

  • Comments Off on 1980s Movie Graveyard Video Distribution Startup

“What a great idea!” I thought while reading about this video distribution startup, 1980s Movie Graveyard. The goal is to get into the business of distributing Indy films and pro wrestling video. This involves money. Money for contracts, copywrite laws, marketing, and securing rights. Help this video distribution startup get off the ground visit: https://www.gofundme.com/r8k8xk-video-distribution-startup

What is video distribution? Good question 🙂 Video distribution is “the process of distributing online videos to various video and social media portals. They are websites such as Facebook, YouTube, Myspace, Vimeo, LinkedIn, etc. There are numerous video and social media sites on the internet (zeroone.com/video-marketing-tips/what-is-video-distribution/).” The startup has already made some progress by signing a contract with a pro wrestling company.

GoFundMe And The Future

“For $2000.00 I will be able to acquire the rights and pay the cost of more titles. The start up is the hardest part and I’m asking people to help make this dream happen. For a few dollars, you can help these B-movie lovers achieve their dream of distributing quality indie films, horror flicks, and even pro wrestling to the masses.”

Video Startup GoFundMe

What Are The Rewards? 

“Donate $100.00 and you will receive (and yes I will put this in a legal document for you.) Each of our releases free for as long as we put them out. Donate $50.00 you get our first 10 releases. Donate $25.00 you get our first 5 releases.”

The rewards are really good especially at the $100 level.

Any Progress? 

Right now the goal is close to 10% of the way there. There’s a long way to go to get to the Go Fund Me goal.

1980s Movie Graveyard

Getting off the ground is the hardest part in business. There’s a plan in place, this startup just needs a little bit of cash to hit the ground running. Please consider contributing to their page today.
