Ebony from Evanston, IL

Help with textbooks & bus passes will get me through my last semester of college!

I'm a single mother working part-time & attending school for psychology. With textbooks & bus passes, I can stay on track towards my education goals!


I'm a 21-year-old single mother and a full-time student currently pursuing an Associate's Degree in Psychology. I also work part-time in the enrollment center at my college.

My goals are to obtain my associate's degree and transfer to a 4-year university to complete my undergraduate studies.

I need help with transportation to get back and forth between school, my son's daycare and home. Along with this need for transportation, I need funds to help me purchase required books for my spring courses.

Meeting this need will help me because I use public transportation 5 days a week. I use it to get between my school, my son's daycare, and home. I cannot afford to buy all of my books for my final semester, so meeting this need will help me be prepared for my classes and finish strong in the Spring!

Thank you for helping Ebony fund this need.
