Let me tell you something: some days it really does feel like my husband and I are drowning in bills. And it just plain sucks. We try to save, we try to invest and we definitely try to put money away from a rainy day. But it doesn’t always work out that way because we’ve got kids, expenses, places to go, gifts to buy, food to eat and so much more.
But hey, at least we’ve got it all under control – for now.
Yet I’m sure that if we would have the opportunity to earn easy money every week, we’d say yes to it. In fact, my husband wouldn’t even hesitant. And believe it or not, there are filmmakers out there looking for people that want to give you free money for two years.
Would you agree to this deal to earn free money each week with one catch?
Filmmakers Deia Schlosberg and Conrad Shaw are producing a documentary, “Bootstraps – A Basic Income Film”, that will follow a group of real people around the United States who will receive a basic income for two years.
Here’s how it will work: Once the first $50,000 is raised, Shaw said they can begin handing out the basic income, initially, to a small number of recipients. Each recipient will receive $1,000 a month for two years. For each $50,000 raised, they will be able to fund two basic income recipients.
Volunteers picked to star in a new documentary film will get $250 a week for two years to use however they please. That’s $26,000 total over the course of 24 months. The only catch is that recipients must allow movie makers to follow them around periodically throughout the experiment. The movie will be on how the volunteers use their $250 a week, and how their lives are changed by it.
