Carol from Bronx, New York

I want to give my son a bright future. He needs a laptop to do schoolwork at home.

My son will be going to school in the fall and I want to make sure he is prepared. A basic laptop is vital to him succeeding in school.

My need and situation

I am in my early 50's and a single mom raising three sons. I currently live in supportive housing and I am a survivor of breast cancer.

My goals are to provide for my sons and help them have successful lives. I want each of my children to have a great education, job and future.

I need a laptop to give my son so he can do work while he is in school. My son will be going to school in the fall and I want to make sure he is able to do his homework.

Meeting this need will help me because I will be able to provide and support my children. Due to my physical and mental disabilities this has been hard for me in the past and I want to dedicate my time to be a good mother to them.
