Organized by: Latisha Brown
I'm a single mother I've recently lost my job again I'm not properly educated I've been taking care of me since 13 coouldnt finish school so all my jobs are dead end and when working don't earn much. I have twin girls who are 18 now and I've always pushed them to be all they could be .. They are now attending university at Bufflo pharmacy program I managed to scrape together the money to send them for their first year 2015-2016 semester now it's time to do the paper work for 2016-2017 semester the cost of attendance is 25,720 per child for the year financial aide will grant them some and the rest I must pay for out of pocket this past year I Had to come up with 12,400 plus books, supplies, traveling expenses,and other miscellaneous stuff needed in total I put out 18,000 and I raised some of the money by saving money left over from my paychecks after my rent was paid of course and skimming meals I would eat once a day and they would eat twice we had no in house luxuries and sold everything in our house worth any kind of money doing that we saved up 5,000 and the other 13,000 we raised panhandling on the streets asking for donations by photo coping their acceptance letters and showing them to people on the streets so they know it's not a hoax on the streets of nyc somebody always has a hustle for money so it was very hard but we did it yet I don't know about this year I'm trying again and the librarian at the library told me I could possibly try fund raising instead of begging and had me come to the library and help me do research on how to start a fundraiser for my twin girls education and she gave me 20 bucks when we were done doing this .. Please help me raise up money for my twins to attend college this year and 4 more after if you can't offer money I will work to earn the money as well if anyone can help with that I've recently gotten my GED while my girls were away this year hopefully that will help me get a better job and next year won't have to impose on you the public to help my daughters they deserve a future and I'll do anything to make this happen I have no family and friends to turn to. It's amazingly sad how people treat you when you don't look a certain way or have much but a big heart I'm here alone I the city with my girls and I'd like to thank all of the high school teachers that befriended and helped my girls through and the total strangers in nyc that gave their hard earned dollars to us to help make it possible for their first year please help me with their second.
