Hello World indeed.

Years ago, a young and clever man decided to get the whole world to help him pay for college.  He accomplished this by getting himself onto a local radio program and requesting all listeners to send him a tiny amount of money each.  Money poured in; some people sent pennies, some sent more, but he was successful.

What does this have to do with anything?  Well, I propose to use the far reach of the internet to do the same thing, albeit in reverse.

I, like many others, recently graduated from college and found myself in deep debt.  My case is a little worse than most in fact.  Because I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life when I started college, I bounced through a couple of schools before deciding to get my BA in Culinary Arts.  I graduated and found myself $150,000 in debt and working in an industry that doesn’t pay well unless you are extremely lucky.

Which brings me o this blog.  I’m going to cast a wide net into the world and ask everyone for help, but I don’t expect everyone to pony up just to help me out.  For every single dollar that I raise to eliminate my own debt, I’m going to give a dollar to help someone else do the same thing.  I’m going to choose another smart talented college graduate and give them half of whatever I raise to help them get out of their own college debt.

I cook. That is what I do. I go to work every day and cook professionally and then on my days off, I cook some more. I love everything about it. I love the chemistry, the alchemy and magic, and I want to know more.
