Cindy Rosen Education Fund for Sam

$3,759 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 28 months
It is with a heavy heart I report the passing of my baby sister Cindy Rosen. Her most shining legacy is her smart, sweet and talented son Sam Smith. Those that wish to honor her memory are asked to contribute to Sam's bright future through this memorial education fund. To quote The Grateful Dead....
"All I know is something like a bird within her sang
All I know she sang a little while and then flew on."

From Sam:
On the 29th, it will have been a year since the passing of my mom, Cindy Rosen. Not a day passes that I don't miss her deeply. I can hardly believe it's really been so long at times, and at others, I can hardly remember life before death. But time has moved along and I've tried to find growth in loss and found solace where I can.

The money from all 48 donors has meant more to me than I can express. I have been admitted to New York University to study in one of the top and most competitive film programs in the world. I received full tuition to the art school side of NYU, but I still have to cover the non-art side of NYU (including meal cards, housing, required non-art classes, books, etc.) and cost of living.

The nest-egg from this GoFundMe will help me have a backup in case of emergency, has given me a sense of security and will likely help fund artistic endeavors. Towards the end of her life, my mother expressed how much she wished she could help fund my art and contribute more financially. Although that was never directly an option, the donors to this campaign have all made it a reality of sorts. Your donations will help me chase my passion and my dream.

From me, and, by extension, from my mother-- thank you.
