    Finding mom the perfect gift for Mother’s Day can be a challenge. Besides, all she wants is to spend time with her children.

    Thanks to Groupon, sons and daughters looking to give both can now have a life-sized replica of themselves 3D printed and personally delivered to their mothers. The downside: its $30,000 price tag.

    Those who are interested in purchasing the replica must call Groupon directly to redeem it within the 90-day time frame, according to Groupon. The description from the official distributor SWIRGRO reads:

    “Unlike busy adult children, life-sized 3D-printed models do not have hectic schedules. That means they’re there when Mom needs the most: all the time. And while your mom can’t claim this life-size replica of you as a dependent on her taxes, she will be able to take it to the movies, drive in the carpool lane, and tell it all about how Darlene is really more of a friend than a hairdresser.”

    Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.

    Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.

    However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.

    We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community. Even a $1 contribution goes a long way.  Thank you for everyone's support. We love you all and can't appreciate you guys enough.
