“Brother can you spare a $10?”

Hi Folks, Thanks to all of the generous supporters of TrueAiki.com., if one more person were to donate $10, I could purchase a video Jog/Shuttle that would speed up my video post production process.  Simply put, the easier the post production process the easier it is for me to get video out to you!
