I'm looking to start my own YouTube channel but I cannot do that without a good computer that can play graphic intensive games and can render videos. I am currently 15 years old and not old enough to legally get a job. Therefore i'm looking for fellow humans (no xenomorphs) to help a fund a human in need. Here is the link to my gofundme page.

No harm in being optimistic.

$1500 is really high. Maybe lower the amount.

What are the specs of the PC you want to build? I won't donate money but I will donate expertise...

Are these the specs of the computer you want to build?

khari262, are you in the United States?

If you are you might be able to legally get a job even though you are only 15.

To find out, google child labor laws for your state. There should be a result listed for an official state page.
Read it, find out what the restrictions are for your state.

It is mostly the same for all states regarding ages, times you can work, what jobs you won't be able to do.

Yes, it would be part time and would take a while for you to get the money to do what you want. If you save the money and set it aside to be used for a computer, don't spend it on anything else, eventually you will have enough.

One thing you can do if you get a job. Talk to your parents. See if they would be willing to help you out once you save a certain amount or give you money to be added to the computer fund for your birthday and Christmas.

If you do get a job, remember that your school work comes first. You will have to find a balance so you can easily do both.

Better try first working on easy online works like Data Entry stuff to earn that amount. Or just tell your dad about your plan you dont know he will support you.
