Link isn't working. Here's the CNN story.

I think his ideas of corporate sponsorship is brilliant.

Of course... sense he's got the personal resources to fund this, it would mean he's probably one of those evil "richest 1%" who persecute the American people by hoarding their wealth while driving huge SUVs to polo matches. Tax them and the corporations who might sponsor them so we can decrease private business, innovation, and funnel more money into the pockets of inept politicians.

Thanks, Kevin. The link should be working now.

You forgot to mention how these evil people oppress the people of the Middle East by stealing their their oil! (I wonder how many billions of dollars Middle East Muslim countries have made since we started buying their oil :-)

i think you'll love this guys backstory....

at twelve years old he started shoveling snow, pumping gas, sweeping shop floors, mowing lawns, etc. by 24 yrs old, this kid managed to sock away 200K doing after-school and summer jobs. no rocket science, just all-American hard work. one of the craziest things i ever heard, but more than crazy, its impressive. now that's what i call the american dream. he may have been a millioniare by age 30, but he's managed to pour nearly every drop of it out into these communities needing help...hence, the reason he started the non-profit and is now looking for corporate sponsorships. not sure this classifies as 'evil' ... sound more like 'heroic' and serves as inspiration to me. (p.s. the guy drives a beat up ford ranger he picked up at junk yard... and he moved out of his apartment, because he was never home, always on the road helping out communities). pretty cool, eh?
