I started this indiegogo event because quite frankly, it’s my last hope. Due to ongoing medical expenses I have become deeply in debt. So far in debt that I was living with no electricity and had to move into a shelter for several weeks. (update: As of Monday December 17th I am back at the shelter due to that fact that there is no running water at my house) It looks like I will be spending Christmas and New Years here.
If it was a choice between buying my life sustaining medications, or paying the utilities. What would you do? Unfortunately unless some kind of miracle happens it looks like I wont be leaving the shelter anytime soon.
Let me give you some of my background. I have been a Pligg CMS developer for 7 years. I have written more modules and templates for Pligg CMS than anyone else in on the entire planet. I bleed for Pligg. I’ve devoted my life to this open source project. The users are like my family.
I’ve helped thousands of people in the Pligg forums. I don’t get paid to do that. I do it because I love and believe in the project. Well now I’m the one asking for help, and oh boy do I need your help.
So to help kick off this indiegogo I’m offering everyone who participates a bunch of Pligg rewards. You can see the rewards list on my blog at pligg.com/chuckroast.So please-please-please do something nice by helping out a total stranger by contributing. You can contribute how ever much you are comfortable with, and every little bit helps.
