    My dear fellow BHWers,

    I come from Serbia, which is, as y'all know, a relatively poor country. I am 19 years old and currently enrolled at a US college as an international student which is very expensive. The reason I came here is because I won a prestigious award - a $40,000 McKelvey Foundation Young Entrepreneurial scholarship. Yes, I run my own business, as many of us here do.

    The McKelvey foundation has recently emailed us (the winners - about 60 of us!) that the foundation is "broke" and is unable to pay our scholarship. They have also informed us that they will remain inoperative for an indefinite amount of time. That has put me into a dead end. My business has been able to absorb the initial shock, but I am unaware how I will afford for my 2nd and 3rd quarter (freshman here!). I am ineligible for any state or federal aid, or loan.

    However, Chase bank, through its program of community giving is giving away loads of money. Whatever foundation gets the most votes on Facebook, it will win **several million dollars**, which is enough to support all the scholars (winners).

    So, I am begging you all with Facebook accounts, please vote for **McKelvey Foundation**!

    To vote for the McKelvey Foundation, please go to http://apps.facebook.com/chasecommunitygiving/charities/794575

    Also, if you have a FB group, I'd really appreciate a message blast to them!

    You may be asked to become a fan, and then you will be allowed to click and vote.

    Thank you all!

    I advise you to do some Facebook marketing research. Buy some accounts, get some friend adder bot. Build a BH FB empire. And BlackHat your votes.

    Its better to have your destiny in your own hands than hoping someone will vote for you.

    Yes, I was thinking about that. However, I am afraid that it may get the entire organization disqualified.

    Yes,your organization might win from the votes from facebook, but I don't see a straight and direct correlation between you getting back your scholarship back and the organization winning the prize. It will only result in an increased probability that you'll get back your scholarship. For all we know they might be under a lot of debt and the prize might only make them break even. Did they say that all the 60 of you will get your scholarship back if they won? Probably not...
    Another turn of event might be that they may decide to look for new scholars? I might be wrong but this is how I see it...
    You said you're running your own business now right? I assume that is at the very least profitable. If I were you, I'd scale it up and take control of my own destiny, expecting and working to get back that scholarship might not be the best option for now.
    I'm sure a lot of guys here in BHW are making more than $100k a year from IM, learning from these guys might be one of the best options.
    just my 2 cents...peace:)

    Why would you bother to fight for a few million dollars prize for a foundation you do not own - and you are not sure you will have your scholarship back, probably the money will go in the pockets of the owners- while you could focus your efforts into making money that go DIRECTLY into your bank account and you could pay the university or whatever you want to do with them.

    Ok, lemme explain some things: we (the students) definitely WILL get the money if the foundation wins this - the owner of the foundation (actually one person) is really nice, we all know her and she's really doing her best to get us the money.

    It was a definite scholarship when I got her. I got the "we are broke" email after I arrived.

    Like some others have mentioned. I would recommend putting your efforts into making the money yourself instead of put faith in someone else.

    I will still vote for you though...

    GOOD LUCK
