Lumberjocks,

I have just come across a need. I don’t know if any of you know Matthew, fellow Lumberjock, but he is an awesome guy. He is ten years old and is just developing his own video woodworking blogs with his father. Amazing! See him here!

Anyway, he and his father have been working out of their neighbors shop until some woodworking companies heard about him and started to sponsor him. He even got to talk with the Woodwhisper!

Laguna Tools has said they will set him up with a bandsaw if he can raise the money for shipping. Shipping to Canada can be very expensive, around $600.00. I hope that we can raise that money here so Matthew can get that dream bandsaw! I am putting $50 in but you do not have to put that much in! Even $10 would help! You can donate to

or

Send your money to:

Attention: Matthew Agate Shipping
Catherine Helshoj
17101 Murphy Ave,
Irvine Ca 96114

Lets help this dream come true!!! I know we can!

Very Respectfully and Gratefully,

Nate
