I rarely ask you for anything, but as the beautiful Amanda Palmer has said, it never hurts to ask for help. And the help I am asking for is not for me, but for a fellow artist. His name is Epaul, and he is a lovely man I wish I knew better. I’ve known OF him for years and years, and have hovered shyly in the background wishing I was brave enough to say “Let’s be friends!” Epaul is a very talented gem artist, he actually carves gems—imagine!—and he has been the gem of many a renaissance faire and all kinds of shows, all across the U.S.
Epaul’s business is in danger, not because of its’ lack of talent or success at what he does, but because of mundane troubles. He may have to sell all his equipment to meet the mundane debts and if he does, he leaves himself without a way to do what only he can do. It is heartbreaking.
Please take a look at this video on Indigogo–http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/save-gryphon-song-gems. There is just one day left to help him save his livelihood. Otherwise, he will have to start completely over, a disheartening prospect for anyone and all too common in these hard economic times.
Please, pass this on if you cannot help. Just one day left to keep a true heart from breaking.
