Fund Rising

I'm not sure what I expected when I asked for help Educating Brian but I didn't really expect this.  I'm humbled by almost daily notices of people willing to and wanting to invest in my education.  I'm grateful for expressions of support and encouragement to pursue this dream.  I appreciate every single offer of help, from those kindly passing on links to my blog to the $5 donations to the hundreds of dollars donations.

Part of my education in all this has to do with the kindness of friends, the generosity of strangers and the willingness of other people to make an investment in the future.  Out of my desperation I reached out for help with little expectation and in my need I'm discovering the power of friends.

I've still got a long way to go to my goal of $10,000 but the journey has started and I'm getting by with a little help from my friends!

One of my old friends sent the link to this video to me.  It resonates.

p.s.  there are a bunch of ads on here now.  Sorry about that but it's another way to raise the funds that Student Loan says I must have banked away and the Bank says I don't have enough of to get a loan.


  1. That video is hilarious! Glad to hear the fundraising is off to a good start. Do you have a paypal account? People could donate money really esily if you provide your paypal email address. I think all you have to do is enter the email address of the person you want to send money to and it gets delivered to their paypal account. Not sure if you can only spend the money via paypal or if it can be converted to cash in your bank account though. Worth checking into. It would be cool to see a "donate via paypal" button on the blog :)

  2. Oh and how do the ads help? Are you paid by the click? Should we be clicking?

  3. Working on paypal. It is a process. I get money by the click but I think it takes hundreds of clicks to really pay off. And they kick you out if you click on the ads that appear on your own site.

  4. Hey Bro, FYI, the PayPal donation link is not working for me. Glad to hear things are moving forward. Stay positive, you deserve it!

  5. thanks brother! I think it's fixed now!
