I do this ongoing PR project to try and get the glass industry talking about how to solve fabricating debris problems on tempered glass. It involves going to GPD, the world’s leading glass conference in Finland this summer, getting a paper published on solving tempered glass scratch problems, and working to influence glass tempering experts.
I’m trying to raise funds for travel and expenses, and asking for your help. (Again.)
Why? [B]Because if you help make this happen you help influence the quality of tempered glass[/B].
The target audience at GPD is tempering experts - who teach the world how to solve tempering problems.
The goal is more experts offering more technical info, training, etc., specific to the glass fines/scratch issue.
And we are having success - as a direct result of these GPD efforts.
(I can explain, if anyone asks.)
I work at this throughout the year, and spend a lot of time on it.
I can afford a ton of time, but I need help with the trip - the travel, conference fees, etc.
(It’s about $4,100.)
So I set up a Mauer to GPD GoFundMe page.
No groaning - Chris Lambrinides gave me the idea.
It’s an easy way for people to make small donations - or big ones.
Any size donation gets your name on the poster at GPD - so they can see broad support from the window cleaning industry.
(One guy gave a dollar last time - no problem.)
It’s got a nice summary that explains in more detail.
You can check fundraising progress.
And it’s kinda social - you can like, share on Facebook and Twitter. (Please do like and share - that helps, too.)
