Michael and Monica's Trip Come True
Organized by: Sophia Bearden
My son Michael and my daughter Monica go to Shelby Elementary. They want to go on a trip with the school to Washington D.C. We have walked door to door and spend several days and hours trying to come up with enough money so they are able to go on this trip. I have already made a 150.00 deposit each for them to have a spot held for them. We have raised 100.00 more in cash donations. At one point they raised 100.00 in fundraising out of a catalog from the school but they only get 45 percent of that money towards the trip. I am a single mother I can not afford to pay for my kids to go on this trip and that's embarrassing to say but truthful. They deserve to go. My son gets all A's. He is very involved at school and is a responsible student. My daughter Monica is an A, B student and works very hard to achieve all A's. She is running for treasurer today at her school. My kids miss out on a lot of events, sports, due to I am unable to afford it but I'm asking for your help to help support my kids trip. It would be a very educational experience. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity for them. If this is God's will I hope the 1400.00 goal is achieved. Thank you so much for your support, kindness, and help.
