How to save money while living in America
An unemployed college graduate is making $8.90 an hour in Texas.
It’s a decent wage but not enough to afford a home, buy a car or even afford a car insurance policy.
But if you live in one of the poorest areas of the country, the average wage is more than $18,000 per year, and the median household income is more like $44,000.
If you’re a single person living in an apartment, your annual income is $8,400.
That’s why there’s a new crowdfunding campaign that aims to help unemployed college grads get off the couch and onto the streets.
The campaign, called Imrf, was launched earlier this month by a group of Americans living in the city of Austin.
The Imrf campaign is a crowdfunding platform where people can raise money for college education.
It offers the option of paying for college by paying for tuition, room and board.
The idea is that students can afford to attend college with an Imrf check, but can also pay for the cost of living.
Imrf has raised nearly $11 million so far, including $3 million from a single donor.
But, as the campaign page notes, Imrf has no plans to expand.
So far, Imf has raised just $7,500.
Some Americans have already begun applying.
“There are people who have been waiting for this opportunity for years and are just waiting to be able to pay it off,” said the group’s co-founder and chief executive officer, Ryan Dube.
“We’re really proud to have a lot of people out there who want to help.”
Imrf says it has helped more than 2,000 people apply.
It also has helped others.
“The more money that goes out to people who need it the more money they’ll have in the bank,” said Dube, who started Imrf in 2015.
“There are a lot more opportunities out there than there are people willing to accept them.”
He says Imrf is growing quickly.
It has already raised $17 million in less than three months.
The goal of Imrf isn’t to help anyone in particular.
Dube says Imf wants to build an economy that helps all Americans.
The money raised from Imrf will go to scholarships, grants and grants to people living in poverty.
For Imrf to get off its couch and into the real world, Dube and his team have to get more than 10,000 applications.
They’re hoping to reach 100,000 by the end of the month.
