Love Sees No Color - Supporting At Risk Kids Through College
Organized by: Amber Massey
I have amazing boys The Lord has sent me and my goal is to get them through college and out of the vicious cycle of poverty they are trapped in. My oldest is now in college on a full academic National Guard scholarship at the University of North Georgia. I have an amazing family who just needs a little help to continue to do what they are already doing. The mom has been employed for 13 years at the same job so she gets little assistance from the government because she does work so hard. She has a daughter in college who works two jobs, an amazing student athletic son who is excelling at one of the top academic schools in the nation where he plays three varsity sports. Last year in November the orthopedist said Jaquan had a broken foot and he had a few options. The option we (Jaquan decided but I promised I would support his decision)chose was to play basketball until his foot completely snapped on the court. Praise lifted he finished the season on the broken foot! The following weeks we went to schedule surgery and nothing short of heavenly intervention did we find out his foot had healed. No surgery needed! This year we are focusing on college scholarships but most importantly keeping a roof over their heads, food on the table and providing safe transportation to and from school and work. Unfortunate their only family transportation has called it quits. We're buying a 1996 crown Victoria with only 50k miles on it today. Some sweet grandpa only drove it a few hundred miles a year. The car is $3779.75 and we are paying cash today. Thankful for family who loans (yes I have to pay it back pretty quickly) me money and believes in my passions. We've looked into the city business but the pick up and drop off stations just aren't safe for any single woman and children.
I have complete access to all her finances, credit report, banking, etc... So I can say with no doubt there is no wasted spending and she's really working to clean up her credit. We would love for them to be homeowners of a modest house that is well insulated In a safe area. Lots of rambling! If you would like to know more about the family please let me know and I'll send you more information.
I started a headband business Threadsforhope.org and would love you to share the website. Proceeds from the headbands help support this family. I am in the process of establishing a 501c but am personally $4000 short on lawyer and filing fees to complete the application. Praying I'll have it established by the end of the year.
I believe in this family and you will too!
Thanks friends - Amber
As for now I really need help with the car, insurance and power bill. I have an amazing guy who gives $150 each month towards groceries because he believes in me and the work I do. I would love for you to support these amazing families. I'm blessed to have the opportunity to answer the call.
If you would prefer to pay a direct bill or send gas cards that would be amazing too!
