Relocate a veteran to work for SHplates
Organized by: Rich Sanders
Steven Wentz and I served together in the active Army with the 10th Mountain Division. We deployed together to Afghanistan in 2011, and had some hilarious memories made in the Fort Drum barracks afterwards. We've since parted ways for several years, experiencing the highs and lows of transition into civilian life. Serendipity is a weird thing, because circumstance has me relaunching SHplates at the same time Steven needs a new job. Your donation will assist Steven in a cross-country move from Washington state to Pittsburgh, as well as associated startup costs (his shop membership, website work, initial steel order, initial supplies etc.) Many of you offered to outright donate to crowdfund SHplates' rebirth, which I was apprehensive about- but considering the circumstances of relocating a new hire across the country, I figure the appeal of enabling employment for a veteran would speak to our followers. There will be another campaign launched, likely this coming week, with donation incentives, however, it will be on a separate engine. If you wish to donate right away and have our higher gratitude, here is your chance.
