Getting some help for an awesome music shop and this site.


Hey Sharders,

We've got an opportunity to help the site, a member of our community, as well as make the world just a little better. I'll try to keep it brief, and I hope by the end, I'll be able to persuade you.

A dear friend of mine owns a small music shop. He's doing everything he can to try to help inspire change in an industry that is laden with issues. Many instruments and music supplies that are sold around the area we live are manufactured abroad, by companies that pay their employees so little that the employees are basically slaves. What he's done is made sure that as much as he can of what he offers is made by people who are being paid a fair wage. I believe in what he's doing so much, that I'm actually going to be joining him as a business partner, combining this site and his shop to make the world a little better.

Right now, he has an opportunity to receive a grant for $100,000, which would help propel this business ahead by years overnight, helping him pay for things like a delivery van, purchasing a broader inventory, and even hiring a few employees. That's where you guys come in. In order to be considered for this grant, he needs at least 250 votes on this page. It does require a Facebook account to vote, but you don't have to post or share anything. All we ask is that you use your real Facebook account, just to avoid making it look to the selection committee that we may have rigged the vote. And if we do receive this grant, I promise, some awesome things will come to the site.

Thank you guys so much for being awesome.

It came up in the topic on the forums, so I'm posting here as well: We've got a little over nine days left to get the votes in.

I've tried voting several times, and it keeps saying 'network error'; this has happened on a few other sites for me as well. I'll try on a different computer, I have a feeling its a problem with my laptop.

Good luck; I also got the network error but I worked through it. I checked and the vote counter ticked up. If you click quickly on "vote now" before the error has a chance to process you can jumpstart the connection. At least, if it's the same error I was running into.

I shared this post on Facebook. Hopefully that will get him a few more votes.

If pop ups are blocked you can't vote, you have to allow them for the page before it will work just in case anyone ran into an error like I did.

Finally got my vote working - we only have 74? How many users are on this forum? It probably isn't my place to judge, but... Come on. We have less than a week... I'm sharing this on Facebook, good deed for the day done. (All joking aside, I think I can get at least five more votes, hopefully a lot more.

I don't have a Facebook, but shared this page on Twitter.

This is a worthy cause, I only wish I could help. (Maybe using my friend's account?)

I thought it said you could vote once per day, but I've voted a few more times, and it always says, "Thank you for your vote!" but the count doesn't actually go up...

3 days left, and only 100 votes. I don't think that your friend is going to make it unless a LOT more people help.
