The goal is set at $500 US/$630 Can because the typewriter is $428.80 and it needs ribbons, correction tape, etc.
It is very expensive, however, its needed. I will use it to finish my non profit business plan, write articles to newspapers, short stories, poetry, op-ed articles, letters to businesses in search of mentoring and support.
Folks these days don't take handwritten anything too seriously. The typewriter will help me present myself professionally. Not to mention that it will help me write a release plan, allow me to contribute to a nonprofit by typing documents, grant proposals, ???
Anything you can do will help! Were nearly half way there!!
