8 Wishes

1) Raise $1 million dollars
I want to raise $1 million dollars for children with learning disabilities and dyslexia. $10,000 scholarships will go to 100 kids to use at a college of their choice. $3000 will go towards testing if they choose or they could use the whole amount at the college of their choice.  

2) 100 million views
I want to get 100 million views of my 10,000 mile video! This should be a big enough crowd to reach our goal of raising 1 million dollars for kids with learning differences. Also, more people will know about SoloRide and hopefully sell at least 1% of those views, or 1,000,000 will buy the documentary.

3) Be interviewed by Oprah
Through the power of media, Oprah Winfrey has created an unparalleled connection with people around the world. The Oprah Winfrey Show has entertained, enlightened and uplifted millions of viewers for the past two decades. Her accomplishments as a television pioneer, producer, magazine founder, educator and philanthropist have established her as one of the most respected and admired public figures today. With her captive audience I could further accomplish my goals to help children with learning differences. Our dream would be to have one show dedicated to raising awareness of dyslexia and what these children can accomplish. Imagine a show that includes Paul Orfelea, Richard Branson, Charles Schawb, and the 13 children.

4) Interview Paul Orfelea (GRANTED!!!)
Because he is a “hyperactive dyslexic."  Ofrelea has a freethinking and creative style, he was able to start and build a very successful company, Kinko's, that was based on providing college students with products and services they need at a competitive price.

5) Interview Sir. Richard Branson
Because of his “rebel” entrepreneur approach to his very flourishing company Virgin. He, like myself has dyslexia and with his fluid management style was able to build an empire of multiple products and services.

6) Interview Charles Schwab
Schwab is well respected around the world because he started Charles Schwab & Corporation and has a brilliant finance mind. He also struggles with dyslexia and is an advocate of learning differences.

7) 88 websites
This project is also meant to leverage and prove the power of social media and the internet. We believe that a viral and networking approach will be the surest way to create awareness of our cause.

8) All in 88 days (DEADLINE 3/08/07)
The extended deadline (previously 30 days) still keeps the challenge exciting and stress the importance and urgency of learning differences, but gives us the time we need to achieve more of our goals.
