Can someone send me $500?

Hello, I need $1500 so I can pursue my dreams as a race car driver or mechanic. Could someone please send me $100, 200, 300, 500, etc. or even 2000 would be wonderful. The donation must be made in US dollars. If you would like to help a guy out. Pm me and I'll give you my address! Thankyou. For your generosity, may God bless you in all that you do!

How will the money be spent? Why not bitcoins? What about a shiny Instructables Pro membership?

Haha I'll use it to buy my race car or safety gear. Whichever I need at the time

is this a car you ride on or a car you control by remote? because if you intend to ride on it you need a few more 0's at the end to be fast enough to race.

This series is an entry level series. I am only allowed to race the stock equipment. So I'll buy the car then weld a cage, add all my safety equipment, paint the car, then I'm ready to race. This will most likely cost between 1500 and 2000 dollars for the first year. Everyone who helps me get started will get their name painted on my car.

Do you already have a car?

Not yet. But I found one for 400 dollars. I need to get the funds to buy it.

I dont know if instructables is the best to solicit money. You might try kickstarter or something.

To help out you should develop a business plan. Show a pic of the car you intend to buy, the picture of the roll cage, the picture of the people who will weld it together/have experience.

Another picture of all the safety equipment you need. And a breakdown of the maintenance costs like tires, oils, fuel, etc.

Show people you are serious and have a license and all that. Might want to up your life insurance and obamacare health care.

I can't show a pic of the cage of the cage welder, they'll build a cage for $700, I'm only 16, and I'm trying to start a career, so I don't have life insurance.

You might try part time employment, since you're trying to raise such a small amount. It wouldn't take more than a few weeks of work (less if you find something that requires actual labor!) to come up with that kind of scratch.

I have to be 18 to use kickstarter and my project doesn't meet requirements anyway. So that is out of question. It looks like I won't be starting a career anytime soon.

Thanks for your advice.

oh sorry your one of nearly a million plus people who got inspiration from the guy who took out an add in a tabloid in the uk in the 80s early 81,82.He asked people to think of his proposal as luck to have the chance to be part of many who send 2p which nobody would miss but with hopefully a collective of wisdom would buy in and get newsletters bi monthly living the dream maybye theres.Estimated this guy received 2million maybe more but although he aim a campaign at the gullible he gamble there would be people reading between the lines and subconsciously thinkingcheeky,as if,wish id thought of that.yOUR LUCK WILL COME AND GONE normally unnoticed,mmm wonder why.SERIOUS CONTACT IF YOUR HAVE THE WITTS TO BELIEVE IN THE UNWRITTEN,,UNSEEN NOT CONCIEVABLE.

So if I said I have a job for a driver and a guiy who can think on his feet will be able to travel to destinations such as n Africa,canada,s e asia and beyond I guarantee you an either or here.no balls or wisdom to look into something its normal is no good so dismiss it.Or you are just an obese slob who wants a new mobo scooter.
