So I committed to "reinvesting" in my community years ago, as soon as I started succeeding myself.
As you may know, thanks to many years of hard work online I'm happy to donate much of the profits from my books, services, and websites (including this one) to charity.
My favorite charity is an annual scholarship program that I administrate personally.
It helps underprivileged kids from inner city Detroit go to college.
Since I used to be one of those kids, I know that offering these students scholarships and moral support is important. It's not a huge program but it has helped many talented students go farther and faster toward their own success. I also keep in touch with our winners (and many of the runners-up, too) to offer guidance and mentoring support through their college years and beyond.
This Year's Winner: Virginia!
I'm very pleased to share with you the latest winner of this annual scholarship: Won't you join me in congratulating Virginia?
Despite a challenging academic and personal environment in the inner city, she had a strong academic record through her 4 years of high school (3.6 GPA). She was a member of the National Honor Society and co-captain of the girl’s Tennis Team, too.
Thanks in part to YOU reading my books and participating on this website, Virginia will be attending Emory University in Atlanta in the fall.
This is a big deal.
Neither of Virginia's parents attended college.
Her father did not finish high school and is disabled from a work accident. Her mother's work helps the family make ends meet but she is chronically under-employed. The dismal job market in Detroit offers little hope of financial improvement for her family and few role models for bright young students like Virginia either.
But my, and now your, financial support of this talented young woman has the potential to help change her life for the better.
I continue to believe that sharing your time through your participation here in our Forum is a win-win activity, plus reinvesting financial success to help others remains an important obligation to any of us who can afford it.
So Thank You.
