So I was talking with my wonderful, generous, intelligent son a few months ago and he proclaims to me, “Mom, I want to help poor children who don’t have enough money…” Of course I was thrilled to hear this! My son is an excellent artist so in the midst of figuring out how we can raise this money, he says again, “I can sell my pictures and donate some of the money.” Now how do you tell this very enthusiastic child that people may not want to buy his pictures….? But earlier this morning, while I was not sleeping, I came up with the idea of how we could do this… We are going to sell t-shirts! Not just ordinary t-shirts though! These will be shirts with original artwork by one Willie James Cooper, III. They are intellectual property and will be appropriately copyrighted so that they cannot be stolen!
We will donate 25% to multiple organizations that assist children and families who are on the autism spectrum. We will donate 25% to our favorite charity, Hi-Tech Tutoring Center, Inc. We will keep the administrative costs to 10% and we will keep 20% for fun and we will save the other 20% in a mutual fund.
We are so excited about embarking on our new endeavor! Stay tuned for more details very soon! This is like my Dreambuilderz© Program on steroids! EVER MOVING FORWARD!
Here is my little philanthropist!
