FreeSchool Maintenance and Growth

School is not-for-profit.

Revenue in excess of operating costs and planned growth contributions are paid to employees as bonus and returned to local communities as 'human-interest' charity.

AC, I cannot help you monetarily, maybe someone can. I do send you my prayers, love and best wishes that you get the help you so need. Some of us do care! If I lived near you I would haul the water for you...as well as assist you with anything else you may need help with.

FreeSchool Curriculum:

Coursework will be remedial high school skills and job training focused. It will not attempt to mimic a Liberal Arts University.

IT Admin
IT Dev
Accounting
Health Care
Office Admin

As a non-profit, and with my current connections to publishers, I believe much of the initial curriculum can be acquired at reduced costs.

So lets just "Say" I have an extra $5Mil to give away,
And lets just "Say" I was thinking about giving it to someone. Not some BS Charity but to someone that could REALLY REALLY USE IT.
And lets just "Say" that you would end up getting it in the next 24 hours.
What exactly would you do with a sudden 5MIL in your lap?

Five million us dollars? Canadian dollars, Australian dollars, East Caribbean Dollar, Guyana Dollar, Hong Kong Dollar, New Zealand Dollar, Tuvaluan dollar?

Its important to know which.

I would start a seed company which specializes in plants which meet one of the following criterion:

* Drought tolerant
* Heat or cold tolerant
* Heavy producer
* Easy to grow
* Tolerates poor soil
* Shade tolerant
* etc, etc, you get the idea...

In short... why grow only the few vegetables which the grocery store provides?

I would go home. Home being where my kid lives. Back in the 90's I was diagnosed with cancer, my husband of 22 years fell for a 25 year old and wanted a divorce, and I was in a car wreck, hit by a drunk driver.

Since then, I beat cancer, I survived the damage from the car wreck, and I have nursed a broken heart from dedicating my life to being a wife and mother and basically getting "fired". I worked to save money to get back on my feet. As much as I worked, the economy changed and my savings cannot get me back home, nor can it get me a place to live when I get there. Still, every month I add to them and dream of the day when I can head north to where I came from.

In the meantime, I have slept in my car, on floors, and bounced between friends and family who helped me during my recovery period. These last years I was basically adopted by my friends who provided a bed and have helped enable me to pay off my bills and save to go home. Sometimes home seems so far away, and time is so short. I get to see my kid maybe once a year as she works and I work and so going home would mean I could be close to my daughter and my old friends EVERYDAY. I could stop waiting for someday to come. Still, my dreams are what keeps me going, and hope reigns eternal.

If I had enough money to get home, I would be thrilled. If I had more, I would like to make a place where displaced adults could come and start over. I have been BLESSED by the kindness of my friends who helped me get back on my feet. In a way it would be paying it forward for all the help I have received over the years. I am asking since it could be you can help more than just one person and if I do not ask, you might never know how much your help could make a difference in my life.

It would make me so full of joy others would be happy just seeing me walk by :p

I want to go home....

Re: Soooooo. If I were by chance to give YOU around $5MIL. What exactly would YOU do with it?
I agree, this thread,and the op is awesome... Bless him/her ..

Congratulations to the lucky person on here, I hope that your every wish has come true , and that your family is well taken care of now..

During the time I have been apart of this thread, this is the only thread I've posted on, and someone on here was kind enough to upgrade my account for 1 month.. I know it had to be someone in here.. So I wanna say Thank You again , in case you missed it ..



.

It is sad that so many of us on here are genuinely struggling to put food on the table and pay bills..

I honestly wouldn't know what it would be like to have a couple thousand dollars in my pocket.. Let alone millions

The only time I have ever had close to that much , was when the utility company had a huge surge go through the power lines, and affected everyone on our block. It damaged my computer and tv at the time, and I think I got around $1500 at the time after the deductible from my parent's insurance..

I am very lucky I have parents who give a damn. If it weren't for them , I would be living in a cardboard box in an alley somewhere.. They have a small storage building next to their house, that they let me turn into living quarters .. I help take care of them, and I pay my parents $75 per week partially for rent as well as to help out on the utilities I use and I pay half on the internet and phone bill... Another $50 ..

So I have $125 in bills going out weekly, and only make between $150 and $200 ..

Then by the time I keep gas in my truck, and buy what little food I can afford , I am left with maybe $5 in my pocket..

I have been trying to get out on my own again for a long time now, but at my current job I bring home after taxes, anywhere from $150 to $200 /wk depending on if I get 25 hrs or if I get 35 hrs . Most of these places only want part timers, so they can get out of having to give full-time benefits... They would rather have everyone be part time to save them money .. or so it seems..

So as you can see,for me there is no possible way to get ahead.. I am literally stuck .. I make it a point to fill out employment applications online daily.. But nowhere seems to be hiring.. I would do ANY job, I don't care what it is; whether it is shoveling crap, wiping butts in a nursing home, flipping whoppers... you name it, if it's a legal and legitimate job , I would do it ..

I just don't know what to do... What can one do, when the effort is put out every single day to gain better employment and get ahead? yet nothing.. The only way I have extra money in my pocket is if I donate plasma twice weekly.. which I only get $55 weekly from that..

My dream is to be out on my own, and have a home I could actually call my own..Even renting a place.. and to somewhat have a life.. To find myself a girlfriend , one day get married and have children..

But at 36 years old, I just feel I am getting older and older, poorer, and that I will never have a home and a family.. It really is depressing as hell... I don't want to get old and die alone.... and in some poorhouse... I'd like to find myself a woman before I am too old to attract one..

As it stands now, I mean who is going to want to get with a guy with a crappy job, and nothing to offer them?

If something drastic doesn't happen in my life soon, I fear my life will have been wasted.. I just wish I could find a good job or 2 and be able to have some semblance of a life...

That's why it makes me so sick to see a few of the responses here, when there are people in here who genuinely
NEED help.. Not to waste on crap, but to be able to at least live and take care of themselves/family..

I pray that those of you who are going through rough times, have some good luck come your way .. I know I sure could use it ..



Blessings to all of you ... even those who put others down on here..

Hey Greg - I'm sorry you're finding it challengin - sounds like you're stuck in a loop of need a job to fund the things you want.

You are centering your existence on a job - i KNOW money does help us forward in some ways but as you live with your folks and arecontributing towards bills...why not think of another way to live rather than the 'standard' set by society?

As you are in that mindset so heavily that a job = good life you will probably wonder what the hell i am talking about! But be patient - expand your desires some more - you want your own place - so that could be a place you build from materials which cost nothing or next to nothing (heard of 'earthships' - well worth a google) Know anyone who has loads of land? Place an advert to form a venture to build such a place...which you volunteer to steer and run to educate others?
Grow/farm your own food on that land...once set-up.

There ARE ways to get the things you wish for without going th conventional route of needing huge sums of money. For instance - during such a venture to get involved in some kind of 'eco village' as a volunteer...you may meet the girl of your dreams...she may already have a place...you never know what paths open up once you make just one step.

Being at your parents convinced the ONLY way forward is to earn earn and earn - well in this climate of very few jobs being offered...i can see you sitting there a long time unless you open your parameters of possibilities.

I feel for you and you sound like you're a resourceful chap - if a more 'live off the land' lifestyle is for you feel free to email me @ harmonyhaven@live.co.uk for info on ways to start in that lifestyle.
If not, fair enough but i think my advice still stands that thinking 'wider' will help opportunities come into your life.

Good luck :-)

p.s they say life BEGINS at 40 so don't go mulling about your age!! heheee

As for your scenerio you layed out , I can appreciate that.. but I don't think the time is right quite yet to head down that road ..

Thanks for your kind words of hope and for taking the time to share your knowledge with me ..

Wouldn´t make any long term plans. Immediately use it to get the hell out of the city and travel the world enjoying every amazing piece of nature and people we have on this Earth starting by South America. Pretty sure I can figure out what to do with it on those places. I like to film so I would definitely bring a great camera along the way!

I would hire a full time cook and housekeeper so I could use my limited amount of energy to spend more time with my four kids and husband. I would donate some to researchers studying my disease. I would then buy my husband a new truck and give family and friends generous checks!

I will pay student loans, my parents debt and take them, my kids, my husband, my brothers and all finally take a vacacion somewhere in South America where we are from, stay in a rental home and buy and make our own food, kind of like thanksgiving holiday but with all of us stress free cause no debt. Then after everyone is healthy and relaxed I would buy a farm where we can all put our talents to work so we can create a self sustainable place where we can provide education, help and support for poor children that live in the streets of my country so nobody can ever explote them again and by the time they graduate from our school/ skill learning farm they can be prepared to support their own families and continue our chain if service so we can reach and help as many people as we can. Then life happy knowing that I somehow help fight the evil of our world.
