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 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.

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.
