This is so important because Andrew is an amazing person. We met him when we volunteered at the shelter helping them with anything they needed. Now when you go into a shelter most people are quiet and keep to themselves. But for some reason Andrew just stuck out. He was so welcoming even though he had practically nothing to show for or welcome us with. His love was addicting! See we went in as volunteers thinking we are making a change just by doing this for people, but I tell you we were the ones who came out absolutely changed. Our eyes were wide open by the end of our shift. Andrew never left the Smith households minds since we got home, and he stuck in our heads ever since we saw him again.

We had to go back and see him!

When we did he was even more welcoming offering us what ever he had as welcome. Andrew didn't know his father because he ran out of his life when he was very young, leaving him to care for his mother who worked full time and practically was never around to care for them. Andrew had the responsibility to do what we adults do with a family and took care of everyone he could with what he had. Andrew is unbelievably smart, creative, professional, and hard/ smart worker. His humbleness makes you feel like what you think is good enough isn't. He will do dirty work from cleaning the floor with a sponge, to preparing a absolutely jaw dropping speech that comes from his pure heart. Andrew always wanted to further his education by receiving a college education, but sadly couldn't. He had to many hard responsibilities as a young adult to take care of. So he sacrificed it all in order for the ones he loves to survive and be cared for.

We sat down and brain stormed everything we could from tuition costs, to helping his family during the time they need help such as feeding, school materials etc, and came up with an amount of $10,000.

If we can raise anything close or near this Andrew will be able to slow down, and finally start his career well education of being a doctor. He will have enough for books, and living as the year goes around. He wants to be doctor because he can't not help people. What ever it is or who ever it is he wants to help them. He has seen people he loves pass due to diseases that were treatable, but couldn't because of the costs. So he wants to be the greatest doctor of all time. He wants to be real with everyone he sees and be a symbol of what a man and doctor should be.

If anyone can help us raise this we will be honored to present this dream to Andrew. Please contact me if you have any other questions. Thanks.
