Short Summary

We all cried at the end of the King's Speech when King George VI made his powerful speech to help the people of England.  When I saw that movie, I said to myself. "They nailed it."  That is an accurate assesment of what it is like to stutter.  I am very fortunate to have overcome my stutter, but many more people out there haven't.  That's where we come in.

I've made it my mission to give back.  What truly motivates me is to help others make their dreams come true.  I'm so thrilled to be able to do something that I love.  With your help, I am going to be able to change lives.

What I Need & What You Get

I am creating a project called : 30 Days to Fluency.  I want to help people who stutter achieve fluent speech.

I am a person who stutters who achieved fluency.  It took a long way to get there and it led me down lots of interesting paths in life so far.

I need funds raised here to help me achieve my dreams.

I will be writing my personal history of stuttering and what it took for me to achieve lasting fluency.

In addition to the book, I will be creating an audiobook with interviews of people who have helped me along the way.

I will also be creating a website to be used as a resource for people who stutter. Here they will be able to share their experiences with people who stutter.  

If I do not reach my inital goal of $4,000 then I will donate the proceeds to the NSA foundation to help them raise awarness and to help people who stutter find coaching and success in their lives.

The Impact

Feel free to explain more about your campaign and let people know how the difference their contribution will make:

  • Explain why your project is valuable to the contributor and to the world.
  • Point out your successful track record with projects like this (if you have one).
  • Make it real for people and build trust.

Other Ways You Can Help

If you can't donate financially and I know many people can't (times are hard), then the next time you see a person who stutters or have a friend who stutters, have patience and let them finish their sentences.

Give them a chance to speak.  You'll find they have so much to say!
