We need financial assistance to cover the following while Jeremiah is unable to work:
- Food to support the nutritional needs in the family
- Mortgage and Utilities
- Medical equipment to ensure he maintains a "clean room" when he is permitted to return home. He will need to stay in the house for 3-5 months AFTER his stay in the hospital. We need to purchase an expensive UV Air Sanitizer and cleaner.
- Transportation and lodging while Jeremiah is in BMT
- Medication Co-Pays
Any unused funds are going to be put into a trust fund at SMB Nation who can disperse these funds to others in critical need
Everyone does stuff to earn money as a child right? Well my addiction to technology started early... So lemonade paved the way to sales and marketing, learning about cash flow, and supply and demand. Take a look at how I paid for my "Nintendo" gear as a little boy.
I started a small business in 2006 called The Ohio Technology Group, Inc.
The company, based in Springfield, Ohio grew quickly and within 4 years landed on the Inc. 5000 list for fastest growing small businesses. (LINK to article).
Prior to being listed on the Inc. 5000 list, I also received The 2007 Businessman Of The Year Award from congress for my efforts serving on the Small Business Advisory Council. My suggestion to start planning for the country to restructure it's Internet infrastructure to be more competitive with European infrastructure was not put into place when I brought it to the floor in 2006, but as of 2009, it is now being considered for national action through the "American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009" . The process I proposed and engineered would allow the US to recycle the copper within current systems to help pay for fiber optic point to point access for every home in America by 2020. ( Link to Story )
Congress however, could not fully comprehend the scope of what I was proposing, and instead, opted to invest in the "Broadband Initiatives Program (BIP)" which only installs new fiber or MORE copper cable to rural areas normally unserved by broadband. This proposal, however remarkable, does not accomplish what my proposed initiative would have, and still leaves our country in an unstable pot luck of equipment and services. Maybe in the future, someone with more lobbying power can affect this change for America, and we will see truly magnificent growth within our infrastructure.
