I often think about the things Id do if I had a lot of money. No, not shop retail at Nordstroms, Im talking meaningful things. Like ways I would give back, make an impact, and affect change. And theres one idea Ive had for a while now that I just keep coming back to whenever I have philanthropic thoughts.
Nope, its not a cure for cancer or a way to end world hunger, even though I wish I was qualified to make those things happen. What Id like to do is something that Im sure would greatly improve the quality of lots of lives, especially the lives of todays youth. Its something a little low on the general populations radar, Im sure, but no less significant.
If I had the resources, Id like to design, build, and run a new type of school throughout the country. A school that kids would go to post-high school but pre-college. And not even for a year. Maybe just for a gap semester. Im envisioning it as a place that would teach all our future generations of kids what I believe to be some of the most important life skills they can take with them into the worldskills theyll use and rely on every day of their lives.
