Kingston, Ontario, Canada, 2006/09/04 - While college costs are on the rise, one man returning to school is using his innovation to offset his tuition costs in an unusual way - SpendMeToSchool.com.
SpendMeToSchool.com is receiving publicity from the media in vast proportion! Mark Stirrett, founder of this off the wall website says "I never imagined that this website would have received the recognition that it is getting."
People are encouraged to vote in a poll and choose one of six extremely varying careers that have always interested the 30 year old college hopeful. "Being a stuntman is every guys dream, I think that would be the ultimate fantasy come true. It's the other choices I am almost second guessing myself on; like being a mortician. Could I do that?"
One vote costs $1US while a premium package that includes one hundred votes and a well exposed banner and link provided by the user is also available. Voters will have the ability to find out, thanks to the innovative live webcam feeds that Stirrett plans to stream to all his website members.
"This is a website that people will want to visit again and again. Whether it's to play our free games, shout out words of encouragement, read my take on the news or to watch how I'm progressing in college, there's always something new to do and read. And if they decide to vote to support my cause, they will be participating in internet history, it's the first site of its kind," says Stirrett.
The website is currently enjoying an influx of website visitors that Mark hopes will continue, and with a worst case scenario of him returning to college, this one might be a winner.
"We went with a newspaper-oriented look for the website, because that's exactly what this is supposed to be... a newspaper about me, how college is going once the vote is over, and how I'm actually progressing, as well as live camera feeds for a reality show type format... It's never been attempted yet, let alone by one man and to be truthful I should be working on it right now," said Mark, just before he said his goodbye and went back to work on his website.
