TheGuyWithaStick is a project promoting young people through music, arts and theatre throughout the East Midlands, UK.

Founded by John Blackmore, a disabled person living in Leicester, England,  TheGuyWithaStick is a 'hub' for a website, weekly News publication, WordPress blog site and associated social media accounts, including Twitter and Facebook, promoting the very best in Music, Arts and Theatre the East Midlands has to offer.

TheGuyWithaStick provides a 'lay-persons' thoughts on music and the arts, not a 'journalistic' perspective, and, as such, TheGuyWithaStick is different to that of 'other' Arts publications. We are not arts professionals or professional musicians, we are, simply... the audience!

We are the paying public, and as such, if we like a piece of fine art or a 'Band' or a particular theatrical show, you can be sure there are many others who feel the same! And, if we like it/them we will, as long as certain criteria are met, include it/them on one or all of TheGuyWithaStick sites

The need now for is to extend our reach to include aspects of the arts that, up to now, we have been unable to give full justice too and to reach to a wider geographical audience, to do this... WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We need to raise £1000, with individual contributions from as little as £2.00, in order to transform from a personal 'project' into a viable, financially independent, not for profit organisation.

Our funding goal will help TheGuyWithaStick to purchase the online infrastructure, 'Brand' artwork and marketing equipment necessary to enable TheGuyWithaStick to integrate the .com, Wordpress and operations into one dedicated site and, further, to provide our users with the option and choice to support our work through the purchase of 'branded' merchandise from a dedicated, stand-alone, online store.

We, at TheGuyWithaStick, truly hope you are able to contribute our funding goal and help TheGuyWithaStick become a financially independent organisation and secure it's long-term future, in doing so you are supporting the dreams and aspirations of young people who are producing the very best in Music, the Arts and Theatre!

Finally, I would personally like to thank you for taking the time to read this submission and for considering helping with TheGuyWithaStick funding goal (remember you can contribute as little as £2.00)... I Truly appreciate your help!
