i stick around.

I will raise $21,000 by November of this year.

Why? I'm part of a group called Youth Making A Difference. In November we're going to Himachal Pradesh to deliver medical supplies, train teachers, build schools, teach English, and improve villages. I'm so grateful for my opportunity to go there and help people who don't have as much as I do. The district we are going to is one of the poorest in the entire country. There are 8 orphanages that take care of over 300 kids.

In my opinion, people read these facts and don't really think about it. Sure, they feel bad and wish they could help, but then they move on. There really is so much anyone can do. It's super easy.  50 dollars can buy an entire orphanage sweaters. That's why my goal is to raise $21,000. The most someone ever raise in my group was $20,000.

Naturally I have to beat it.

If you have any ideas that will help me come up with these funds, please drop a comment. I would love to hear from you.

I don't understand why you're not indie if you say you're indie.
