Computers for College: Help my students

$2,395 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 29 people in 61 months
I teach in Downtown Los Angeles and many of my students do not have computers. Last year I used my own money to buy computers for a few students who were going to college, but hadn't the means to have a computer. This year I want to do the same. I have 4 students who are incredibly hard working, who have overcome great obstacles to make it to the point where they will go to good colleges, and are wonderful generous people. I very much want them to be able to have a computer for college. Right now they stay in my room till late in the evening to use our computers. But when they leave, they will need their own. These are the students who received computers from me last year. They are doing wonderful in college and are very grateful. I cannot afford to do this again by myself, so I am looking for others to help.

Thank you so much for helping these wonderful kids succeed in college.

There seems to be some class competition that Joi started. I'll try to keep a tally...so do include your class. So far 1994 is leading the pack.

You are all amazing! I just wanted to update everyone. So far we have raised $1,760 ($760 on this site and another check for $1000 on its way). I am so thrilled. I've already been able to order two computers. One student received hers today and left school with a huge smile on her face. Thank you. It was awesome to see. I have also received two more pledges and might be getting a couple of great used computers. You have no idea how important this is to my kids. I'll keep everyone up to date as more arrives.

Thank you again, Karen Magee

And a special thank you to Joi for her challenge. Class of '90 is really contributing... but hasn't been able to pass '92. I love you all, Karen
