There is a lady that makes custom canes and she is looking for help achieving a grant to help her and her husband continue to produce canes for Veterans. This is a quote from her on another woodworking website. It doesn’t cost you anything but a few minutes of your time in order to vote for her business.

_”Here is where I need your assistance. I have applied for a grant as a small business that would allow us to continue and focus on our goals to produce our ergonomic canes in mass for veterans and be able to donate on a regular, long term basis to those who are outside of the established distribution system. What I need from you, the public, is your verified support in the form of a VOTE. There is NO money or other obligation asked of you. No monetary donations or solicitations will come from me, just my heartfelt thanks for taking a moment to LOG IN and vote for my small business, Big Stick Canes as a preliminary step to be recognized for my efforts, interests and integrity of wanting to be a successful business that provides a needed product.

”I need 250 plus votes by June 30, 2012 to be considered for the next step. Please tell your friends, family and associates if you believe in my goals.”_

I’d be able to make and donate either finished canes or cane blanks plus my vote. Good luck for a good cause. I need to make myself a cane for personal use so I can empathize transitioning to life with a cane due to injury.
