Outreach for David Charlesworth
This blog is not about sales or in support of any marketing attempt for monetary profit. This is an attempt to give back with your help. We have a world renowned author, teacher, furnituremaker and woodworker, David Charlesworth, that has done much for the woodworking industry, who now requires our help. If I had to state on word that drives or represents woodworkers and their accomplishments, that word would be “inspiration.” David has been, and still is the epitome of inspiration for many through his woodworking talents. He now requires our inspiration and giving back to him.
David was teaching woodworking classes in Germany, when he was rushed to the hospital with respiratory problems, and other health complications that affect his ability to survive. We all know what it means when we cannot do our craft, as David is currently in condition, unable to continue doing what he does best. Without that ability, he acquires no income. His wife Pat, a retired school teacher with limited funds, is trying to handle it all.
That’s where we all come in as a family of woodworkers. I have found that woodworkers do more than just woodwork. Most, if not all woodworkers that I have encountered in my travels, have given back in some way to children, medical causes, the indigent, universities, home school woodworking programs, other woodworkers, communities; all with personal money, time and attention.
David needs our help right now, and time is of the essence. If you can donate a contribution, it will all add up to help David. Your heart-felt gift will not only help with his medical bills, but relieve part of the heavy burden a situation like this puts on a person and a family. When mental and physical well being need to come together to support the healing process, help from the outside can be instrumental in accomplishing a healthy recover.
Rob Cosman shared with us his support of David, stating, “While recovery is the most important, the reality is David, like most of us, needs to work. He derives a part of his income form his royalty on books and DVDs. If you have been considering a purchase, NOW would be a good time, and a great way to show your support.”
