Skoolie School: The Bus n' Us

Hey, Skoolies.

I bought myself a school bus and am documenting the whole conversion process through a YouTube series. You can check out the Patreon page here: https://www.patreon.com/skoolieschool?ty=h

There's gotta be some kind of rule against begging for money in here.

I agree. I clicked on the link thinking that there would be vids of his conversion process and there was nothing but asking for money. I proly wont click on the external links anymore.

It's basically a go fund me or backscatter page for a YouTube show on the conversion process. I'm going to make videos of the whole conversion for free, it'll just take a little longer without financial support.

Then go fund yourself and do not rely on others to help you. After all, we're doing ours without help from you.

I am funding as much as I can myself. I work around 60 hours a week and most of the money is going straight into the bus and tools. I'm not really looking for too much help with the bus, I'm looking for most of the financial help for the show. A lot of people would actually watch a clean cut, nicely edited show about a school bus conversion.

I'm not trying to sound needy. I'm trying to ask for help from the community to get this show up and running, from those who want to see it. Sorry if I came across relying on others for financial support.

With all due respect there is nothing wrong with asking for fundraising. I hope you don't take that approach when boy or girl scouts come to your door raising funds. I don't have any interest in giving money I don't have at the moment so I'll just keep it to my self. There are plenty of people out there with too much money and they love to through it around and help people who they want to. Just let it be please.....

And God bless
Eric

I don't have a problem with Jacabszall or anyone else trying to raise money for their bus conversion on a internet site. I do have a problem with posting a message to this site saying visit this external link to view my progress on converting my bus when there are no videos of progress and only options to donate money. I will just not click on external links anymore even though I might miss out on some good information.

I didn't say that link would show the progress on the conversion.

"I bought myself a school bus and am documenting the whole conversion process through a YouTube series. You can check out the Patreon page here: https://www.patreon.com/skoolieschool?ty=h"

I didn't say that external link was going to redirect you to the series. Sorry for the confusion.
