Log Splitter

Person with a disability trying to start his own microbusiness (after trying every other avenue)

This person has has a background as a tree arborist - a job which he loved and was extremely passionate about until his accident 9 years ago.
He was left in a chair, without his career and facing how to learn to do the simplest life tasks all over again without the use of his legs and other complications.

In his own words....
I was emotionally & financially devastated. I now want to be self sufficient again. I hope to be able to start my own business and prove to others in wheelchairs that they are "more than just their disability" & with a little will power and support can get back into the workforce.
To take the first steps to build my business, I need to purchase a logsplitter and some safety equipment.
I aim to offer a specialised service - splitting logs & cutting firewood from my chair on people's rural properties around where I live. There is interest from potential customers & passion from me... Just missing $3,500 to get started. I've tried many avenues already..

Log Splitter

Heavy Duty Log Splitter and safety equipment needed for a person living with Spinal Cord Injury to start a small business. After many years of not coming to terms with his injury, loss of independence or inability to adapt to a new career, tree arborist Murray has developed a plan to develop a small business to split and cut fallen trees on people's rural property to sell to them for firewood.

Coming from a place of low self esteem, low resilience and very poor resources, this is the start of a life-changing turnaround for Murray - assisted by our Not For Profit organisation. A strange request for GIVIT to be sure, but something that will enable this person to turn a corner in their lives....This is "teach a person to fish" stuff, not just "give a person a fish".....
