Hello. I am raising money for my new website that preserves auto racing history. We are asking for donations to purchase better scanning equipment that fits old, fragile newspapers and programs easily.
When we were going through the Covid 19 Pandemic, I was laid off from a occupation that I was involved in for the past 30 years. I decided to take this locked down time and do something that I enjoyed and help so many people out at the same time. I have been collecting old newspapers for some time now. They are extremely fragile since they are well over 40 years old in some cases. I have well over a thousand newspapers and programs to scan. I am currently scanning these programs and papers with an iPad which is very difficult to say the least. A lot of bending and sitting on the floor and with arthritis in my knees, makes it very difficult to scan for a long time. I am asking for a better scanning option for these newspapers. A lot of these newspapers have folds and tears. The pictures have gotten darker over time. The paper has turned yellow over the years. The stories don't change over time and still are interesting to read. Especially about the drivers that are retiring now, just beginning back then. So, if you are looking to give away an old newspaper scanner or want to donate to my website, I would greatly appreciate. Thank you for your time.
