I need to ask a favor of everyone. And I got in to this really late so if you could spread the word it would be a HUGE help.


This web site is handing out grants to US based small business owners. It is Chase Bank doing it, not the government. I entered my info and would love to have the money for a couple of things;

1. Hire someone!

2. Buy a larger plastic machine.

3. Get a better CNC machine

4. Insulate the stupid shop so I do not freeze all winter.

Please if you could go the link and click vote. Then enter Proxie Models and vote. You have to have a Facebook account to vote, I think to prevent me from voting for myself a million times. Spread the word to every forum you can find. This is a chance for me to finally build a team and buy a larger plastic injection machine

Interestingly enough, soon after voting on the Chase site I got an email from "Chase" stating I needed to update my information and would I please clink on the link provided and do so.

It smelled so badly of spam that my spam filter dumped it in the spam folder.

When you vote, it adds an app to your facebook page, if you look under apps you can find and delete it. Hopefully that nips any spam in the bud!

Crimelord25 Oct 2013 6:33 p.m. PST

Best of luck,

Shadyt26 Oct 2013 9:24 a.m. PST

Voted. Good luck to you.

"When you vote, it adds an app to your facebook page"

Grr. I don't regret voting for Proxie (good luck, BTW!) but this kind of thing really rustles my jimmies :(

Sorry Ken, try as I did, I do not have a face book, account.
If there was another way I would do it.

@ 2400 applied for the 12 grants. A 1 in 200 chance. Only about 25 have the votes, giving them a 50% chance of getting a quarter of a million with no payback to invest in their business.

I am still lacking about 60 votes in spite of pestering people on forums.

I thought it would take hours with all the people on game forums, but this is harder than it looks.

Done, hope it goes well and you get the grant

Sorry - only verified members can post on the forums.
