This update is going to be different. I am asking you to help me help a friend of mine, Jose T. Rodriguez, of Tiger Productions. Please read, so I can explain.
MY FRIEND, JOSE T. RODRIGUEZ
I have been friends with Jose T. Rodriguez since I discovered I had named my company very similarly to his. His company was named Tiger Productions and had been in existence long before mine, but he never once complained to me about my trampling over his name. But that’s just the kind of guy Jose is. He’d give a friend the shirt off his back, and I love him for it.
Well, Jose has run into some hard times. He recently had quadruple bypass surgery and an aortic valve replacement. As a result, he lost his job, and his insurance, and now his unemployment has run out. Also, he can’t even work in his shop because of his recent surgery and medications. His family is down to having to live off what little his wife manages to make and they are facing hard times. Jose set up a Go Fund Me account to help him pay his rent and electric bill for the next 2 months. If you can, PLEASE pledge to Jose’s go fund me account.
Now, I hope Jose makes his goal, but I also know, if he doesn’t, he gets nothing. That is why I already sent Jose some money. I sent it directly, through Pay Pal. This is because I know he will get that money no matter what. But I want to do more. So…
MY ‘BUY IT FOR JOSE’ SALE
However, for those who want to be sure to help by donating directly, or who need to be enticed, or for those who just want to do more, here is another way to help me help Jose.
From now until Sunday night, I am holding a 20% off everything sale — with a catch. In addition to you getting 20% off, I will give 25% of the GROSS to Jose, directly! And, I will announce how much we managed to raise in a post on Monday. All you need to do is load up your cart and apply this code at checkout:
So, here is your chance to tell your boss that you HAVE to buy TMD resin — to keep Jose from becoming homeless >;-)
Folks, if we can do as good this weekend as we did on my last sale, we can all stock up on TMD resin AND pay close to a month of Jose’s rent. I know you can do it, so start shopping!
[NOTE: if you have trouble with the coupon — and some of you do, for some reason — just email me and let me know. I’ll fix it. You know me, so you know I’ll make things good for you.]
THAT IS ALL
I’ll post a regular update Monday, when I announce how much we raised for Jose. Until then, stay safe and buy some TMD resin — for Jose!
