Help buy a house
Organized by: Kenneth Marasia
I'm looking to buy a home and start a family. I would like to buy a fixer-upper in Queens or long Island, New York. I'm very handy and I have plenty of friends willing to spend the time tearing down and putting up a few walls in exchange for some BBQ.
Why should you help me? Im asking for the world to help one man provide a home for his family. I'm not prideful, I ask for help when I need it. I give what I can when I can. Any dollar you're willing to part with to help me is greatly appreciated. If this happens to pass 1,000,000 people and they all donate just a dollar then this would be easy. I'm not asking for more than $1 from each person this happens to pass by, but even if you don't make a $1 donation I would appreciate if you can pass along the link.
What guarantee do you have that I'll use it on a house? I will take pictures and post them so you can all see. If I don't then you all have my permission to ask for your money back.
I set the goal to 1,000,000, why? Houses are expensive in New York and the surrounding area. Whatever I get I can use as a down payment, less any money I need to cover year end taxes as I'm not a tax exempt charity. If I reach the $1,000,000 target I should be able to buy a $600,000 home straight out of pocket and not have to renovate it.
I would also like to invest in Solar Power for the house and make it as self-sufficient as possible.Even the water system would be heated by solar energy.
Thank You for your help. I look forward to posting about the project's progress!
