Teenager Donates $7K To Charity After He Makes $35K In Four Days Plowing Snow

David Holston is an 18 year-old entrepreneur from Coeur d’Alene, Idaho who made money in four days last winter than many people make in a year after he took a trip to Seattle, Washington.

When Seattle was hit with a record snowfall, David showed up with his truck and plow and made some serious cash! He ended up making over $35,000 in just four days from plowing snow, and he announced afterwards that he will be donating $7,000 of that “to God” through his local church and other Christian organizations.

“I plan on tithing 20 percent to advance the kingdom of God, buy mowers for this year’s mowing season, and save the rest for buying my first house debt free!” David said. “I credit all of my success to my savior Jesus Christ who died on a cross to forgive my sins and three days later rose from the dead.”

David had been in Seattle visiting his mother after she had surgery, but when he heard about the upcoming snowfall, he realized that this was a huge business opportunity. He worked 12-15 hour days plowing snow, and it paid off for him in a big way!

Though he charges $125 an hour plowing snow in Idaho, David placed an ad on Craigslist in Seattle charging up to $500 to $750 an hour. His phone immediately started ringing off the hook with people asking him to plow their snow.

David has credited his incredible work ethic to a Bible verse from the gospels, Luke 12:31.

“But seek first the kingdom of God, and all these things will be added unto you.”
