Faith says: Thank you for helping me with my education! Nov 26, 2014

To all my supporters, thank you for believing in me! This semester, due to the fact that I have all the books and supplies that I need to succeed, I am doing very well in school! I know this could not have been possible without each of you and your support. I am currently enrolled in Business Management, Business Computers, and Business Communications and am working towards an Associate Degree in Business. My end goal is to be a marketing manager and I know I can do it! :)


I am 23 years old single mother raising a 4 year old son. I just recently transitioned out of homelessness and am working on rebuilding my life.

My goals are to establish a career, be a great mom and role model, and set a path for a great foundation for the next phase in my life.

Textbooks have increased in price tremendously and I would greatly appreciate your help paying for school supplies.

Meeting this need will help me because it will help start my journey to better myself and be the best person I can be. I am registering at the local community college in the Fall and am going to work hard to receive my Associates Degree in Business. I am very determined to graduate and funding this need will allow me to allocate other funds to pay for my school tuition. I am looking forward to going back to school so that I can plan for a better and more stable future for my son.
