Elon Musk has promised to help out a ten-year-old girl with her school project after she sent him a letter suggesting how he could save some cash.

Schoolgirl Bria, ten, asked her dad to post the letter on Twitter so that the Tesla founder could see it.

The Sun reports Steven Loveday tweeted to ask the billionaire if he could help his daughter out with her "school project" just in case he hadn't spotted her letter.


In the typed note, Bria suggested that Musk ran a competition for homemade adverts to promote the luxury electric car brand.

"So I think that you should run a competition on who can make the best homemade Tesla commercial and the winners will get their commercial aired.

"The cool part is that you still won't be taking the time and money to advertise for yourself," she wrote.

"Plus, this is something your fans and customers will definitely love.

"You could give the winners a year of free Supercharging or a Model 3 Easter egg or something."

After spotting the tweet, billionaire Musk pledged his support for the school project.


Parents are increasingly encouraging their tots to pick up a pen and paper after a raft of great responses from tech company CEOs to young fans.

Earlier this month Chloe Bridgewater, seven, found fame after her rejection letter from Google went viral.

In an application addressed to the "Google boss", the seven-year-old detailed all her credentials, including that she is "very good in class and am good at my spelling and reading and my sums".

"My dad told me to give you an application [sic] to get a job in Google," she added.
"I don't really know what one of them is but he said a letter will do for now."

Chloe submitted the application through the Google careers page and eagerly awaited a response.

Just days later she received a letter from the company's CEO, Sundar Pichai.

"I think if you keep working hard and following your dreams, you can accomplish you set your mind to," he told the schoolgirl.

"I look forward to receiving your job application when you are finished with school! :)"

Proud dad Andy Bridgewater shared the letter on Linkedin and it has since gone viral.

Bridgewater explained that the girl had been in a car accident a couple of years ago and that the letter was a huge boost to her confidence.

"She is now even more eager to do well at school and work for Google," wrote Bridgewater in the post.

"Can't thank such a busy person enough to take time out to make a little girl's dream become one step closer, although not sure she's fully aware that it'll take more than riding go karts and sleeping in pods to make it with Google."
