  HUMAN HOIST - Launch Debate

On 12/12/12, The History Channel debuted the Human Hoist (www.humanhoist.com)  on "Invention USA".  It's a must see. If you haven't already, go to (http://www.history.com/shows/invention-usa/videos/invention-usa-stop-in-the-name-of-glove#invention-usa-stop-in-the-name-of-glove) and see for yourself. Created by two all American cousins, Eric Brittingham and Kevin Ferguson, it will revolutionize the way men work, play and create.

It has sparked a great debate. The two hosts, Scotty Zeigler and Reichart VonWolfshield, disagreed on how to get the Human Hoist produced.

Reichart really likes this invention. He says it's a work of art, a premium product, a winner and he believes we would be better off making this a custom order item out of our own shop. The issue is, we have no manufacturing facility. We do not have the tools, or machines to make the Human Hoist. The prototype was hand made and took thousands of hours of research and development.

Scotty's excitement and enthusiam for the Human Hoist was what we were hoping for. He wanted to hook us up with a manufacturer. And we loved this! From the beginning, this was our intent. So we were introduced to DR Power. We were excited! However, DR Power does not seem to share our vision, and our passion.

SO, now we wonder, we dream, we forge ahead with our vision for the birth of the Human Hoist family. We have a great wave of support for the product. Hundreds of thousands of people, from all over the world, want and need the Human Hoist (yesterday)! Was Reichart right? Many times he pulled us aside and filled our minds with advice. Good advice. However, the advice assumes money. We need money to get the Human Hoist launched. To get people up and down without stress to their bodies. It is our intent to help this great country of ours keep working at all levels.

This is a great American idea. The prototype is made and we need your support to move forward to search for investors and work on a price point. With your donation, let's put Americans to work! Let's restore pride, confidence, and American workmanship. Let's get this project on "gogo" mode!

And in advance, we thank you, we appreciate you and we bless you!
