The Willy the Plumber

Is specifically for Utah children of inmates doing a lot of time or if their parents are habitually getting locked up and doing time.   

We recognize that these children themselves haven't done anything wrongBasically they are also victims of their parents bad choices; the 'Forgotten Victims of Crime.’  We want to break that cycle, with a way out of prison visiting rooms, with an incentive and also some financial help towards them getting a higher educating.     

The purpose of this Program - these Scholarships 

Is first act as an insensitive; a seed to succeed - for these kids to be able to do better than their parents; to know that they can do better.  That there is a Scholarship specifically for them (by getting good grades and staying out of gangs and drugs); there is help with that financial burden of CollegeThe second is to provide not only some financial help and also possibly some direction [too often, too little is expected of these kids and thus the fruit doesn't fall far from the tree].  Granted the student must have a strong desire to succeed in life and college or a post-high school institution; that will be determined by their application and their eligibility 

The number of Scholarships will be dependent on the amount of donations: The more money that comes in the more that can go out.  It's up to me, the public and the Utah State Prison inmates to make sure that this scholarship keeps working.   
This is still a work in progress and most the money is coming out of my pocket.  But I hope to do donation drives in the prison [and out here] to help come up with this money:
January 2nd to the 22nd
(Start the year off right-Give the Kids a better start on life).
July 4th to 24th (Freedom and Independence for all kids through a higher education
I would like to do some kind of a Concert and/or yearly Charity Run  [‘Jogging for Justice’ or ‘Running from Prison to a better life’] to show those children (and inmates) that there is also community support. -And help raise more money for even more scholarships.  LET me know if you can help.
