Fundraising begins for headphones


Surgical Serenity Solutions

Alice at AORN conference in Chicago

I’m excited, but also a little bit scared:  Fundraising begins for our new model of Surgical Serenity Solutions.  I’m sure you’ve heard me talk about how excited we are to have a new headphones that is 1/5 the cost of the other one.  Our goal is to make the headphones so affordable that a hospital can issue them to each patient having surgery or other painful, anxiety-producing procedures.  Still, we have to order 1000 of them to pass on our huge savings to you!  So we are fundraising through the fantastic Kiva program for entrepreneurs.

Would you be willing to make a $25.00 loan to Surgical Serenity Solutions?  This is a loan that will be matched by Kiva and repaid within three years. Here’s the info: Make a $25 loan to SSS.  Of course, more than $25 would really be appreciated too!

Since I posted this a few weeks ago, many more expenses have suddenly appeared. My patent is up for renewal and it costs almost $2000.00 just to renew the patent!  Then I discovered that one of the factories that we deal with in China had suddenly closed!!  Now I’m having to hire a man who goes to China multiple times a year to check out factories and make sure that they are legit!  These are expenses I was not counting on, so the Kiva Zip loan will also be used for some of that!  When fundraising begins, you just don’t know what all the expenses will be.

Please give us a loan for as much as you can?  You will definitely get it back!  Then we can get our wonderful music out to all surgery patients and anyone who is anxious and fearful about a medical procedure!
