Help Banana Man Go to College
Today I watched a video from Upworthy, (which is a Facebook account that posts and shares encouraging videos.) where they interviewed a man who resides in Brooklyn. They call him BananaMan. He sells fruit on the streets of Brooklyn. In his story, he discusses that he dreams of being a teacher.
So, I thought, everyone deserves a chance to become who they dream to be. Even though BananaMan seems to enjoy his job selling fruit to individuals, I can 100% see him being a teacher. In the video that Upworthy posted, you can just tell in the 3 minutes of the video how joyful, kindhearted, and personable he is. 3 great characteristics that all teachers should learn about.
I felt lead to start this GoFundMe account because BananaMan is an inspiration to me and he deserves to do something he loves! If you feel lead to donate, any amount is appreciated. Your thoughts and prayers are very much appreciated as well.
Thank you for informing me on the fact that this account isn't active. I have been doing my best to fix it so Banana Man can get the funds that he needs. Please stay tuned!!
Just wanted to update you guys on how the money is getting to Banana man. When I initially set up this account, the only way I was able to set this up, was by putting in Banana Man's email so he could start accepting the funds. He is the only one that is able to receive the funds, hence why I set this up! :) I hope this helps clear up any hesitation that anyone is having.
Happy Saturday! :)
Hello Michaela, I read about AbdulHamed in the New York Times and I found the link to this gofundme page. Would it be possible to tell him about the University of the People which is an online university that can make his dreams a reality? Here is the link: http://www.uopeople.edu/ Please convey the message to him... Thanks a million in advance. Zeina
Please tell bananaman that there is a low cost or even free (if you can prove financial hardship) alternative called University of the People, the world's first non-profit, tuition-free, online university. The schedule is flexible because it is online and is recognized by the Department of Education as nationally accredited by DEAC (http://ope.ed.gov/accreditation/InstAccrDetails.aspx?756e697469643d3233333637352663616d70757349643d30267264743d31322f31392f3230313620333a31363a333820504d) There are currently 3 programs: Business Administration, Computer Science and Health Science University of the People aims to open the gates of higher education for everyone, regardless of their socio-economic background. It has endorsements from fortune 500 companies like Microsoft, HP, and recognized by many well respected individuals and organizations. Please give University of the People a try bananaman, we would be happy to have you with us!
Michaela, Has he received the funds previously donated ? How does an account go inactive ? Thank you
I would love to help after seeing the video. Can you explain a little more how this money will get to him since you are in Missouri? Just want to understand a little better. Thank you!
