Hello, and for those of you who do know me, you know I have been on a disability pension now for a few years, and the thing about it is that I don't want to be on it, I want to get off of it, but ODSP doesn't provide any assistance here for people who want to get back into making their own income and to get a new profession on the go.
I have been practicing photography now for some years, and I have gotten very good at it, I've taken courses, I've studied almost everyday for more than 3 years and I've been ready now to get off the ground and enter this field full time - but the problem is that I cannot get funding, I'm on a Disability so no one will give me a loan, I'm disabled so I can't work here because there is no jobs that can accomidate me, and I have done private jobs with my substandard gear that doesn't even pay for a days worth of groceries - I NEED HELP!
What I'm asking for is $10,000. This is for upgraded Camera, Lenses, Flashes, and Studio backdrops and stands. The truth of it is that just $10,000 will set me up, get me off of ODSP, in return helping a person to get off of tax payers dollars. Being in this situation has caused a great deal of depression and hardship on my life, and I'm desperatly clawing at the sides to get back into the workforce.
Thank you all for your consideration, and I hope that all your kindness is returned to you ten times ten fold.
For every donation of $50 or more I will give you a one of a kind scenic photograph of the beautiful Northern wilderness. No other photograph like it, and it will not simply be mass produced, each person who gives more than $50 will recieve a one of a kind, digital photograph not used by anyone else in the world, not even myself, you will be the only owner and have all and full rights to use it however you wish to use it, it will be all yours!
