Room & Board Start Up Funds
Organized by: Michael Perdomo
EVENT DATE Aug 22, 2015
The reason why I'm trying to raise money for "Room & Board" because I'm trying to do something positive with my life and go back to college. I've decided to go to school for Business Administration at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California because I was fortunate enough to be selected to travel across country (Los Angeles, California to New York, New York) to interview successful people, insearch of advise on how I can obtain success on a televised (PBS) road trip for 1 whole month with RoadTrip Nation. During the beginning of the RoadTrip and towards the end, I realize that my soul and passion was meant for Costa Mesa, California. I just arrived back home from the road trip on July 28th and been wondering how I'm going to raise money for "room and board" by the time school starts (August 24, 2015).
I know this may seem last minute to all my supporters but just know that I'll be very thankful for what you can contribute :) My primary goal is to attend this community college, transfer to a university, get my degree in Business Administration and then work towards my MBA (Master of Business Administration). I'll like to create my own business that support nonprofit organizations by giving 50% of the profits made in my business to a nonprofit that caters to "At-Risk Youth" with low income families in HIGH poverty neighborhoods. *I'm currently consider a "Independent Student" because I have not had my parents since birth which lead me to be adopted in a very abusive household. I've been living on my own and trying to just get by since I was 18 years old. Underneath you'll find some links that'll give you a better understanding of everything I explained above.
