Hello! This is a student-led fundraiser for the University of Houston students who have lost the computers and electronics that they need to complete their coursework. A good laptop is about $300-500. I chose $20,000 seemed like a reasonable number, but the university's main campus has more than 40,000 students enrolled.
CrowdRise allows me to connect this fundraiser with the University of Houston's ID so the proceeds DIRECTLY go to students who need it the most! Also, donations of gently-used laptops works too! I will be setting a drop-off spot at the main university campus.
How this money will be used: A list of students will be collected and money will be dispersed based on degree of need. I don't have an exact number of students but I am asking professors to reach out to their students through email and get back to me!
*** If you are a student who has been affected, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! ***
Harvey did not tremendously affect me, which I am grateful for because it allows me to help those who are in need. GO COOGS!!!
