PLEASE READ: I HAVE CONSENT TO CREATE THIS CROWDFUND AND FOR THOSE WHO ARE SKEPTICAL ABOUT DONATING - THIS WEBSITE IS AWESOME IN THAT IT ALLOWED ME TO LINK CRAIG'S EMAIL TO THE FUNDRAISER TO ALLOW ALL FUNDS TO GO DIRECTLY TO CRAIG BONCLER AS THIS FUNDRAISER IS SET UP ON HIS BEHALF. ALSO, CRAIG HAS SHARED THIS LINK ON HIS PERSONAL FACEBOOK PAGE THAT YOU CAN CHECK FOR VERIFICATION. So for those of us who couldn't make it to his restaurant, let's help him this way!!!
I hate doing this...
I'm in a lot of trouble. Due to various reasons - some within my control, some not - my restaurant is in a downward spiral.
Like my employees, I take a paycheck through our accounting office. I'm currently sitting on 9 weeks worth of paychecks that I can't cash. This has resulted in me being continuously behind on my mortgage and car loan. My mortgage is currently about a week away from going into default.
The single most serious issue is that I can't even afford the copays to buy insulin for my kids right now, and I'm down to about a two week supply.
As many of you may know, my youngest son was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes two weeks ago. All three of my boys are now dealing with this currently incurable disease.
I'm not asking for handouts, and sympathy/thoughts/prayers won't solve this problem. (No offense intended to anyone)
I am asking for help.
If you live anywhere within driving distance, please consider having a meal at my restaurant. And tell your friends. Tell everybody. Have more than one meal. We have a huge menu to choose from, and it's all good food, at a reasonable price.
I'm more than willing to earn the money to pay my bills, and I firmly stand behind my product.
Please help. My boys and I are depending on it.
PS - I know. This is like the worst commercial ever.
