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? 


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.”

“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.

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.

Milton Family Loses Home in Fire GoFundMe

  • Comments Off on Milton Family Loses Home in Fire GoFundMe

CashSherpa.com not only features technology we also like to feature good causes. On February 7, 2017, Sue White and her daughter, Nichole Furr, experienced a house fire due to a faulty dryer outlet. They need your help! Learn more: https://www.gofundme.com/milton-indiana-family-loses-home-fire

Milton House

What Happened? 

“The fire has caused their home in Milton, Indiana to be unliveable and they and Nichole’s two children, Taylor and Julian are left with nowhere to live and most of their belongings are ruined. They did not have renter’s insurance so there is no insurance coverage to help. They and the children are devastated from the aftermath of the fire and are greatly in need of any help that anyone can give. Nichole is a single mom of two teens and Sue is on disability due to some medical issues – so funds are pretty much non-existent. We are so thankful they all made it out of the fire that very quickly spread and even the dogs, Roe-Roe and Rhodie, made it out of the fire, safely. Sue and Nichole are two of the most caring people, always there to help others when they need it most. Anyone who can donate even a few dollars to the recover of my family, please do. We will be forever greatful. They have all been through so much and it would be really nice to show them they aren’t alone and that they have so many that care. This GoFundMe is to help raise enough money to get them another rental home where they can live and any of the things they need such as furniture, clothing, and everything in between. Setting 2 separate households up with the necessities has proven to be a huge challenge. This help has proven to be so necessary and is deeply appreciated.”

Meet The Family

This is the Milton Family that needs your help.

Milton Family

How Are They Doing?

They seems to be getting a lot of support already with many of the donations coming in a $25, $50, and $100.

The Milton family is just barely at the halfway mark to reaching their goal. Without renter’s insurance there is no other way to raise the money without the help of a site like GoFundMe. Consider helping out the Milton’s visit: https://www.gofundme.com/milton-indiana-family-loses-home-fire

  • Comments Off on Sullivan’s Restaurant Community Assurance Maintenance And Home Improvements

This is an interesting GoFundMe project I just recently discovered… The New Sullivan’s Restaurant and Tavern in partnership with Community Assurance Maintenance and Home Improvements wants to give back to the local community and needs your help. The New Sullivan’s Restaurant and Tavern has opened a GoFundMe page with a $35,000 goal. Help them reach there goal: https://www.gofundme.com/sullivansgivesback

Where Is The Money Going?

“Community Assurance Maintenance and Home Improvements will be using the funds donated to this campaign to purchase the equipment needed to provide services to those in need in our community with whatever jobs can help the less fortunate (whether that means replacing a bathroom floor, replacing a water heater, plumbing work, electric work etc etc). The owners/operators of both companies will take requests for these jobs and provide the tools and labor needed to complete the jobs. And Sullivan’s will be giving away free meals on specific days of each week to anyone who needs a meal.”

GoFundMe Community

Why GoFundMe?

“We set a goal of $35,000.00 to set up the budgets and funds to accommodate these primary goals as well as to set up some events in our establishment to raise awareness and additional funds for these goals. Additional funds are always appreciated and we want to specify that all additional funds will increase the repair budgets and increase the food budgets to be able to accommodate more people and more projects.”


Yes, there are bonuses for certain funding levels. For example just $100 gets you one ticket to their grand opening event. The top tier, $5,000, gets you “ultimate reward” plus a monthly one year dinner for two at Sullivan’s Blackstone, VA! Now that’s an amazing perk I must say.

GoFundMe is the number one do-it-yourself fundraising website online. I’m happy to see organizations like Sullivan’s leveraging this technology to give back to their local community.
