Why should I give him money?
Well, I'm not forcing you to give me money. Honestly, I hate asking for money from anybody! It makes me feel greedy. But I'm in the point of my life that this is one of my last resorts. So I rely on YOU, many more of my fans, and people who have good hearts to help me get out of this pothole in my life and continue to pursue my career. Being a musician and clothing company owner are my jobs and I don't see myself doing anything else. I live and breathe this. I truly believe that with my hardwork and drive, I can go real far with it.
If you don't feel comfortable donating to me, it's totally understandable. I don't expect everybody to donate for whatever reason. But I'll feel blessed knowing that you've read this far and you have a sense of who I am as a person.
What is Fresh SB Apparel? What makes Fresh SB Apparel so different from all the clothing companies out there?

I'm not just talking about how our products look, but I'm mainly talking about how our customers smell like when they wear our products. How your customers smell like? YES! Believe it or not, ALL our products smell FRESH! Name me 1 clothing company that makes their clothes smell good. Not a single company out there but Fresh SB!
Fresh SB Apparel is the WORLDS FIRST clothing company that makes all their products smell FRESH making customers feel confident about how they look and smell like when they first wear the shirt. And trust me, when you purchase the shirt, you'll be getting compliments by many people about how you look and how you smell.
I care about my customers! I don't want my customers smelling like shirts that just been taken out of the cardboard box or plastic wrap. It's not a pleasent scent. With Fresh SB Apparel, you don't need to worry about that problem. Let us take care of that cardboard scent problem and you can just take care of how to live a more confident life with our products. Lastly, expect you and many people sniffing your shirt for hours because it WILL happen!
Is this company just known locally?
Actually no. This company is known all over the world! With the power of Youtube, I'm able to promote this to all 23,000+ subscribers all over the world. This company has grown so much within the past 2 years through promotions on Youtube. Many famous Youtubers have worn Fresh SB Apparel such as: Lil Crazed KID, AJ Rafael, Melissa Polinar, Jeremy Passion, Legaci, Erin Paula, Michelle Martinez, Mike Kalombo, and many more! I've been extremely blessed know that there's people all around the world who have supported Fresh SB Apparel. Many fans from San Francisco, Los Angeles, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Germany, and many more!
So what exactly happened to you to cause you to reach this low point in your career?
Here's the full and exact story. I've been working for the California State Government for 6 years. I just recently lost my regular day job due to mass layoffs. The Californina State Government laid off 6,000 Student State workers on August 31st, 2012 due to budget cuts. So I decided to work on my music and clothing company, full-time. I LOVED IT because I could finally focus on something that I was truly passionate about. I was doing fine for 2 months until Dec 15th, 2012 came along.
Dec 15th, 2012, my mother and I were driving to Home Depot and suddenly an SUV swerved out of control due to a wet road and headed directly to my car. It's a traumatizing sight knowing that a bigger vehicle is headind directly towards you. Thankfully, my mom and I came out of the crash with just a headache and back soreness. Unfortunately, my car didn't make it at all.
We are blessed to know that God was protecting us every single second of that crash. I felt that this was a sign from God telling me to slow down and think about life. Life is a beautiful thing and we just need to stop and smell the flowers sometimes. I've learned so much from the accident and I can finally say that I became a changed and better person with with that accident.
Did insurance cover for your accident?
Yes, they did. But since my car was an old 96' Honda Civic, they weren't able to give me much money to pay for the car since it wasn't worth much according to Bluebook value. The money I've received isn't enough to pay for a good reliable car for daily use.
So tell me, where exactly is this money going to?
Let me break it down for you to let you know what my expense are like:
-$8,000 - $10,000 - It will help me find a good, safe, gas-efficient, and reliable company car to help me get from Point A to Point B.
1. It will help me drive all over the Bay Area and Southern California to get to all my concerts that I'm scheduled to do.
Lastly, If by any chance I exceed my expected goal of $10,000, the extra money will be going to investing in my clothing company. My plan is to grow bigger as a company and to release many more products for my beloved and loyal customers. I strongly believe that this company will go very far in the future. I plan to be successful and nothing but successful with this company. Please give me a helping hand to make this dream possible.
