My answer is NO. Now, I imagine the next thing you expect me to say is that college should be free. But that's not my line of thinking. Research shows that students tend to have less commitment when attending trials of free college; also, I'm not sure economically that it is feasible. (However, prove me wrong on either count and I'm happy to be on board.) So, what am I saying? Well, perhaps more of a team effort? Could professionals who are successful take steps that would actually not have a major impact on them, but would make a world of difference for a college student?
To that end, I have made a commitment to sharing a percentage of the profits from my artwork to help college students in need. (Go to the Art tab at the top of this website) I feel this is a worthy cause and a chance to test out my theory. The more this succeeds, the more I plan to reach out to other professionals to do the same.
So, what do you say? Are you game? Click here to see my effort. Also, a HUGE THANK YOU goes out right now to those of you who responded and began making purchases. Whether you are decorating your home, your office, or a whole building, I can help you and by doing so we're both helping college students.
Do you have a college student in need? I'm working on two specific young ladies right now, but once they are set, I will gladly accept new students to help, so come back and check on the progress.
