Money is hard to come by when you're in college. For some it will come from a job. For most it will come from your parents. But what's the best way to ask for money? Parents tend not to respond very well to a post-it note with postage due that says, "Dad. Cash. Thanx." Not to worry, I'm here to help. Go ahead and send your parents this formal request for money and I guarantee (I don't really guarantee, please don't sue me) they'll send you enough cash to keep you rolling in beer and chicken wings for at least a few weeks. To the Parents of ______________:Greetings and salutations. I hope this letter finds you well. I'm writing today on behalf of your son/daughter. I, like your child, wish this letter were purely social. Unfortunately, it is not. Rest assured, your child is in perfect health. At least for the moment.
First and foremost, let me say on behalf of your child that they love you and are thankful for everything you've done for them up until this point.Now someone as savvy as yourself must realize that college life is hard and requires determination, concentration, and intelligence. It also requires money. Lots and lots of money.
