I am trying to raise enough money to start a non-profit organization that provides moral support and assistance to the children from broken homes. I work 2 jobs just to make ends meet and go to school full time to provide my children with a life every child deserves... A life with a parent that can help them with homework, stay home with them when they're sick, allow them to play team sports, etc. This is the reality for many single parents. It compromises the child's health and well being staying up late because "mom" or "dad" can't help with homework or has to drag their child out of bed from the sitter in the middle of the night. I want to form an organization that provides emotional support for the children by providing counseling services, peer play dates so the children do not feel like they're the only ones, tutoring where it's needed, guidance and offering mini workshops that teach them age appropriate skills like etiquette, making your own lunch/snack, (older kids) doing laundry, (high school) filling out paperwork, the significance of good credit, internet safety, getting ready for college, taking out loans, buying a house, the significance of contracts, grocery shopping on a budget and learning to do their own taxes. If I cannot reach an amount that helps my project significantly, the money that has been raised will be donated to our local domestic violence shelter. Thank you!
