Hello everyone! My name's Katherine Olsheske, a wife of an Army Veteran and mom of 2, residing in Indianapolis, Indiana. However, this campaign is not about me.
I came across this article online about a 13 yr old boy named Nathan Duszynski. Nathan tried to help his disabled and unemployed parents make ends meet by running his own hot dog stand while he was on his summer break from school. After being misinformed by a local city hall employee on whether he has to have a permit or not for his stand, zoning officials shut him down just 10 minutes after he first set up shop. Now, he's experiencing all sorts of permit-related issues and is being told he needs a permit from the Health Department as well.
In a time where plenty are just fine with accepting government handouts, it angers me that our government can't seem to provide adequate aid or guidance to a young boy actually doing something about his situation.
What We Need To Do
Let's help this boy get some funding so he may get his hot dog stand up and running again. He and his family are now living at a homeless shelter. If the government is just willing to sit around and pretend that "the private sector is doing fine" then maybe we as a community can do something about this!
Other Ways You Can Help
As a young aspiring business owner, Nathan not only requires monetary aid but business advice and guidance as well. If you don't have any monetary contribution available but have the latter, I am certain this young entrepreneur will greatly appreciate this. Especially if it helps him run a successful business and get his family out of the situation that they're currently in.
DISCLAIMER: I do not and will not receive a single penny of the funds raised from this campaign. I am merely a concerned citizen who would like to help those who truly deserve it. All the proceeds will be disbursed to Nathan Duszynski's family.
