Would money motivate you not to drink underage?
After his fourteen-year-old daughter Mariah was hit and killed by a twenty-year-old drunk driver, Leo McCarthy offered her classmates to take Mariah’s Challenge in memory of his daughter. He told them at her eulogy, “If you stick with me for four years don’t use alcohol, don’t use illicit drugs but give back to your community, work with your parents and talk to your parents, I’ll be there with a bunch of other people to give you money.”
He gives $1,000 scholarships to those who have taken Mariah’s Challenge.
Would money motivate you to wait until you were twenty-one to drink?

Personally that would not motivate me, seeing how I drink on occasion and in a safe place. If I’m going to drink, I’m going to do it at a friends house or party where it is indoors or in the backyard and I have a place to sleep, so I don’t need to risk getting home late at night. All I can say is as long as you drink responsibly and know your limits you should be fine.

I don’t drink anyways. My brother got pulled over twice for drunk driving, so I’ve seen how dangerous it is. I think money would spoil the feeling of being productive of your own accord, without a bribe of sorts.

I could do it if I really wanted the money I guess but here it’s legal to drink at 18+ so I’d probably not do it

I would do it and it would be no problem

i dont drink anyways, but i absolutely would complete the challenge. money is always nice, as is staying sober and helping out in the community. i’d be in for sure.

I’m an opportunist, I’m already straight edge, I’ll do it and collect.

I don’t do drugs and never will! I could go without drinking for 4 years. However I do believe that drinking is ok (at legal age….not that I keep to it strickly) as long as you’re RESPONSIBLE! It’s you’re own choice to do EVERYTHING you do, so drinking doesnt enhance or decrease your reponsility…
