Here is a new direct link to my project: Custom artistic ergonomic fancy wood canes for wounded warriors :
As many who know me, know that I focus on making walking canes. You can view one of my techniques at How To Make A Custom Cane .
I am currently trying to get my project idea approved for the Pepsi Refresh Project which could fund a major distribution of my ergonomic canes to our wounded warriors.
I need YOUR help! Please vote for my Pepsi Refresh Project idea Custom artistic ergonomic fancy wood canes for wounded warriors : – Vote everyday from May 1-31. This is a direct link.
I’m currently running around #250 and need to be among the TOP TEN rating, so I NEED YOUR VOTE NOW!
If I win I can create canes for our wounded vets, but this depends on YOUR VOTE! Please visit daily to vote and tell your friends and family. For more info on my work visit Big Stick Canes
I can’t stress enough as to how I need your votes, as if I do not have a top rating, I will not be considered for the final selection. This elimination will end this dream and project. SO, PLEASE VOTE EVERYDAY from MAY 1 – MAY 31st. Tell your friends and family and ask them to participate.
Well, as of May 1 (Noon) I will wait to see if I make the cut, I will need all of your support to win this grant. It s a lot of money that I plan to use to help a lot of soldiers. I don’t know the exact amount of canes that I can make in a year, but as mentioned, I plan to continue supplying canes after the deadline as long as I have funds and supplies to do so. I hope to create between 500-1000 plus canes. That’s a big discretion in numbers, but I want to make sure I do the minimum, so the maxium number is not set.
Please be sure that I will give the soldiers the best quaity product possible. My canes are guaranteed, so if they need anything altered or fixed, I intend to do so, at my cost.
My company is a small for profit business and I do have bills to pay, but I do not intend to cheat the soldiers or public by providing just a few, shotty canes. My canes are created to give the best in comfort, support and style for the user. The intention here is to provide as many canes as possible until the funds run out. The costs of this project will entail vairous expenses including advertising/marketing, supplies, workshop expenses, phone calls and delivery costs.
Our canes are guaranteed, so if a soldier needs their cane altered or fixed, this will be an out of pocket expense for me.
Please see the postings below for examples of the styles we plan to offer.
I hope you will consider helping me and the soldiers by voting for my project: Custom artistic ergonomic fancy wood canes for wounded warriors :
