I have a really awful mouth.
If you’ve never met me in real life, I’m being serious here. If you have, you know. Huge dental problems. Tons of missing teeth. I started to have work done a few years ago but I lost my dental insurance halfway through the process so they did the extractions and not much else, leaving me with a mouth full of nothing but shame.
There are lots of things that are borderline acceptable in American society but missing teeth ain’t one of ‘em. You can be bald and look cool. You can be fat and presentable. Missing teeth make you a hillbilly or a hockey player or a hillbilly hockey player.
Fixing my teeth hasn’t been a financial priority because other stuff always seemed to be more important than me looking socially acceptable. Feeding and clothing my children, for example. However, I’m at a point where I feel like my inability to smile openly is holding me back – so I’m starting a specific dental fund; money that’s going to finishing extractions and getting dentures or something.
There are two ways you can help…
1) Just give money out of the goodness of your heart. I don’t expect anyone to do this, really. No hard feelings if I don’t raise a dime this way.
2) The REAL thing you can do is hire me or buy something from me. You name the price and you just donate it straight to the dental fund using the PayPal button below. Again – you name the price because it’s a donation.
What can I do for you?
For starters — consulting about filmmaking, online business stuff, visual effects, or blogging. I could write something. I could set up a WordPress blog for you – and host it. I could produce a video or create an animated logo. I sell stock footage. I have courses on filmmaking that I do. And so on – that’s a starter list and I’ll be dropping other suggestions as I pimp the Dental Fund over the next few weeks.
Here’s the donate button. Again; you name the price. Toothless beggars can’t be choosers. Send some money and tell me what you want.
