They say you can make a million bucks on the Internet.
I want to see if that's true. My wife thinks this will never work, but I told her that it never hurts to try because:
- Americans are the most generous people on the planet;
- If millions of people spend five bucks for a cup of coffee, they surely won't mind sending a dollar through the mail; and
- Nobody used to believe that computers would be a big hit either, but look at us now.
My concept is really pretty simple.
All I ask is for every person who stops by this website to send me one dollar. That's all. Just one measly dollar. And how much can you really get for a dollar these days anyway? You won't even miss it. But when you send me a dollar, I can add that to everyone else's dollar and soon enough, those dollar bills will really add up. I'm hoping they'll add up to a cool million, maybe even more.
Why should you send me a dollar?
Friend, that's the wrong question to ask. The real question is why shouldn't you? After all, you're already making thousands of people millionaires every day. What's one more going to hurt? Think about it for a minute. You spend a buck at Wal-Mart and you're making the Walton family richer. You fill up at the gas station and you're making those oil company CEO's millionaires. Get your daily latte? That's another buck in the treasure chest of those Starbucks guys. And to be honest, all those folks have millions or billions of dollars already. They sure won't appreciate your dollar as much as I will. So do me a favor and help Make Me A Millionaire Today!
Still not convinced?
Okay, let me tell you a few things about myself. Maybe you'll feel better sending me a dollar if you know who I am. My name is Ken and I'm a 37-year-old video producer. I have a wife, a kid, a dog, some fish, and a mortgage payment. I make enough money to meet my current financial obligations, but at the end of the month, there isn't much left over for things like savings accounts or saving for my child's future education. Sound familiar? It should, because I'm pretty much like the rest of the working stiffs in this country. I work 40+ hours every week and drive an hour each way to work. I'm not exactly broke, but I'm sure not going to be able to retire before I'm 75 years old. Your one dollar gift could change all that. So why not send me a dollar and Make Me A Millionaire Today.
It's Not Just All About Me.
But I'm not a greedy guy either. I'm not asking for your dollar to pay back some credit card company for things I just couldn't live without. I'm asking for your dollar because as soon as I become a millionaire I can quit my 9-5 and get busy doing what I really want to do with my life- helping other people. So the sooner I reach my goal of one million dollars, the sooner I can dedicate my life to helping other people better theirs.
That's why the second part of Help Make Me A Millionaire Today dot com is the really exciting part. Once I've made the first million dollars, the second million will be used for charitable purposes, either by donating it to established charities and organizations or through a foundation we will develop together. The bottom line is that only the first million bucks go directly into my pocket. The rest goes towards helping people who just need a little help.
So there you have it. Your dollar will not only Make Me A Millionaire Today, eventually it will be used to help people all over the country who often only need a little helping hand from time to time.
That's good because it means you're probably just moments away from sending me that dollar. Now comes the really easy part. Open your wallet or purse and pull out one of those George Washington's staring at you. Put that sucker into an envelope and write the following on the front:
"Help Make Me A Millionaire Today"
P.O. Box 4027
Oceanside, California 92052-4027
Lick the flap and seal it shut. Stick a stamp on the front and drop it in the mailbox. It's just that simple. Now, give yourself a pat on the back for doing such a wonderful thing for someone else. And finally, tell everyone you know about this website and encourage them to send a dollar my way too. Because the faster you help me, the faster I can start helping others, maybe even you!
Of course, if you want to send more than a dollar, I'm not going to complain about it. In the meantime, check back at this website to see how much money has been sent my way. I will put up a link of some sort to show the total amount that I receive.
No, Not A Scam!
And oh, by the way, this isn't some kind of Nigerian Bank scam or shady investment scheme. I really am who I say I am and I really do plan to keep the first million bucks that roll in, or any amount up to a million bucks. (And according to my understanding of the IRS code, your one dollar gift to me is not taxable by the federal government, so that really helps things on my end. If I am wrong, I will certainly pay the taxes I may owe. But that means that I may actually have to keep slightly more than the first million dollars until my net proceeds equal one million dollars. After all, the whole point of Make Me A Millionaire Today is to have a cool even million to my name at the end of the day.) Furthermore, I really will donate and/or distribute the second million dollars or more to charitable causes, either to previously established charitable organizations or through one I establish. (And for that I will certainly seek qualified, professional assistance.)
So what are you waiting for? Send me that worthless dollar and Help Make Me A Millionaire Today!
