Call Habitat for Humanity and ask them for their scholarship program, go to the priest, rabbi, mosque leader where you attend and tell them what you want, go to the school you attend and tell them you need the money for this and show perfect proof of your intentions (this can go on your record as part of your future job experiences and other great things on your resume), go online and look up the state/county scholarship programs and fill out the applications for help (start now the state is slow), if you have ever worked and paid into unemployment, apply for that unemployment (it is yours and legal), go to the local business where you live and ask each one for a donation ($50.00 from the flower shop, 25,00 from Vons, 30.00 from the beauty supply, 20.00 for the mailbox company, 45.00 from fed ex and staples and Walmart and Walgreens and Rite aide and CVS and you get the picture. Hit the malls because all the shops are in one place. It adds up quickly. Since you are young, they will talk to you quickly. Next summer is 12 months away. You have plenty of time to make this money. Open a HFH account at the bank and put all the money in there. In no time you will have $3000.00 and you can invite a friend. If you are lying, it will backfire on you. Tell your parents what you are doing so you have some protection.$10.00 here and $100.00 there and, and, and you will get all your money and then some. YOU have to work for what you want. You could also get an after school or after work job (yes, two jobs, imagine that!) just for this project. Make sure you put the money where it is not easily accessible (in the bank account) or you will spend it or your brother will spend it or your sister or maybe even mom and dad. Money in the house is tempting to most people. (It calls to them in the middle of the night and wants you/them to go get something with it. I am not joking. Money is charming and tantalizing to most all people.)Okay, you have your work cut out for you. Get cracking. Get back to me when you have collected all and tell me how the application process worked out for HFH.
