thank you for taking a look at my campaign. My name is Kellen Bell, I'm a 28 year old, married, father to be and community advocate who has been deeply positively effected by education.
I received the majority of my K-12 education through the Detroit Public Schools system where I experienced the typical shortcomings of an underfunded, sometimes mis-managed public school but I also experienced something seldom discussed; love. The love I received from some of the teachers and staff that I encountered implanted a spirit of compassion and love for community in me that drives me to help our youth do the same.
If it was not for the love that those educators showed me, I might not have graduated from Eastern Michigan University, I might not have been equipped to even apply, I even might not have thought to create this campaign.
You know the problem, many great kids either can not afford to apply to school or have not had the exposure to fully weigh the many options available to them.
Education and experience helps open our eyes to the world. Let us make that reality closer for some kids.
I plan to invite up to 40 colleges and trade schools to a convention area and invite hundreds of local high school juniors and seniors to apply to college for free.
With your help we can change the future for hundreds of students and their families. We can get more young people interested in furthering their education but we can only do it working together.
What I Need & How I will Use It
I need $2,600 for the following expenses:
Convention room space $1060.00
Flyer printing/distribution $240.00
Internet Advertising $300
Website Design $100
Radio ad $500
Office supplies $100
Miscellaneous fees/expenses $300
All funds raised over the goal will go in to expansion of the current fair and/or planning and execution of the next fair.
Other Ways To Help
More important than money is action, spread the word! Maybe you can not contribute as much as you would like but if you chip in $20 and a few of your social network friends do the same, we can reach our goal!
Remember every action, helps us create the world we wish to see.
