So excited! Got my email!

I received the golden email today! Have a lot of work to do getting my space ready. Making plans to use my glowforge (Dougforge) and three 3d printers to start a makerspace/classes for adults with disabilities. In my community and experience (son Avi 28 years old with intellectual developmental disability) if we give people the ability to express themselves, they blossom. I know many adults who can use the unique ability of the Glowforge to transform a hand drawing into a piece of art or product that they can be proud of and share with there peers and family. How powerful can that be! Oh and I also want to make things. I think money can be made too, so I can enhace my idea with other tools. Lots of ideas and look forward to communicating more on the forum for support and inspiration. Doug
