VANCOUVER, Wash. — Three young entrepreneurs searching for capital for their startup business are taking a unique approach to fundraising; and they are calling on all Americans to help them out. What does America get in exchange? The opportunity to help write a book detailing what Americans want to see changed in America. Who will get that book? The current President of the United States, and the field of candidates for the 2008 presidential election will receive it. Jason Timm, Nick Ewing, and Michael Brown of Vancouver, Washington have launched HelpWithChange.com.
For a one dollar donation every American is invited to contribute what they want to see changed in America. Everyone is then able to vote on the ideas for changes they most agree with. The top suggestions for change as voted on will then be included in the book.

HelpWithChange.com was launched on April 4th, 2007 and will be taking suggestions for change, and the spare pocket change that goes with them until July 4th, 2007. The top 500 ideas will then be selected, published, and distributed.
Many people have already logged on and contributed what they want to see changed.
When asked what inspired them to do this the trio replied “We want help change America by pursuing the American dream and launching our business. Who better to include in that process than America itself?”
Jason, Nick, and Michael have all experienced the difficulty of finding someone to listen to them and that has become the driving force behind this project. “It takes so much effort to get someone to listen to what your business idea is, and to have them show interest in funding you,” Michael states. “The same seems to go for the average American as well — sometimes they feel like they have no individual voice in the political world.”
