    Hi me and my business partner a year and a half ago decided to bring a new Airsoft Field to Kissimmee FL, Well after getting everything in line and ready to begin, our backer decided to take his money and go to another business adventure, which we wish him all the luck in the world. Sadly to say that left us sitting on orders for rental gun and our lease and our licenses and permits and insurances, basically we are now 30k short of our start-up.....
    So we created this blog post and paypal button to hopefully raise the start-up with donations

    http://begslist.org/money-for-business/need-funding-to-start-a-new-business-backer-backed-out

    basically im the type of person i hate to beg for anything, but i cant let this dream fall away after we are literally 99% there. So what im looking for is if i can get $1 donation (well take anything you want to give also) so if i can get 30k ppl to give $1 each thats all i ask for
    Thank you community for any and everything

    no contract, which is my lesson learned, but now im stuck with everything sitting at the ready, and insurance company and suppliers calling me waiting to ship orders

    but as the old saying goes "Failure is not a option" So i will find the money one way or another

    Next weekend I'm going to be staff at a major local operation. I'll see what they pay me and I'll send some of that your way.

    ok this is what I put on my teams page for the Bunker!
    feel free to copy it to your teams page and get it out there guys!
    I was talking to Bunker and told him if he gave a big swag box to everyone who donates just a dollar, it could put him back into a hole. so I came up with doing it a bit differently. this way everyone still gets something.
