I'm a veteran, was a combat engineer in the Army back in the late 80's. While I was stationed overseas for two and half years, I was lucky in that I never had to serve in combat, and was witness to one of the major events of the last century, the fall of the Berlin Wall. All of us veterans, and anyone who knows anything about current events, knows that health care, both physical and mental, for our veterans is lacking. As much as I'd like to be making guitars full-time, I am lucky to have a good a day job, which is working as a Registered Nurse with the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs, where I do see some of the limitations on care that is provided to our veterans. This is my way of doing something to try and help our veterans who do need the help.
Do you want to do something that will help make a difference?
I do. I'm willing to custom build and donate these guitars, which for a part-time builder, is a considerable chunk of my time and money. Can you put in $10.00? I want to conduct a raffle for one of these guitars, and if all goes well, will do the other one, too. I'm working out the details now, but would like to have 500 tickets at $10.00 a piece. All money raised on the raffle of the first guitar will go towards projects at the Illinois Veterans Home in Quincy, IL where I am employed full-time as a Registered Nurse. I work with veterans of various disability levels in a long-term setting. The money raised will contribute to various projects on the campus that will help improve the quality of life for the veterans I help take care of each day.
Real Simple:
*$10.00 per ticket.
*500 tickets
*100% to actual projects to benefit veterans
Fine print, but I'll make it large so it's easy to read.
1. I've made the guitar.
2. I need to work on who will collect the money and I'd prefer it not be me.
3. Once that's in place, I'll put up an announcement on where to get your ticket.
4. The projects are already planned at the Illinois Veterans Home at Quincy, I just need your donations.
