Bailey needs school supplies.

$950 of $750 goal

Raised by 45 people in 42 months
A dear friend of mine from high school (she is like a sister to me) is a single mom and having financial problems and needs to get things for her beautiful 16 year old daughter Bailey. She is needing school clothes, supplies or monetary donations to get them. Here is some information from her:

First I was completely honest with health and human services when it came to her renewal but they took away our lousy $147 a month in food stamps & her Medicaid. Bailey has asthma, migraines & goes to counseling. As far as her school supply needs, I was able to get her some stuff with my own financial aid from the bookstore but she'll need more paper, pencils, markers, a compass, protracted, ruler, folders, binders, etc. She's in AP classes, physics, English, advanced art, so on. Her love is art and they didn't have any sketch pads in the campus bookstore she could use a camera of her own as she is also in the dual credit program for architecture and engineering. She needs black, khaki or gray size 9 pants and or shorts. Any color button up solid color shirts/blouses, size S/M, black skater style skirts, size M/L (as in ice skater?) I had no idea Lol. Solid colored tights/leggings any color I think. Ankle socks, skivvies (not granny panties lol) and bras. She likes makeup and pretty costume jewelry if possible. She has no clue I'm asking for help and tries to make me feel good and says it'll be fine mom. She deserves to start off on the right foot especially when she's trying so hard. 

If you can donate material things depending on your area we can get you a mailing address or pick them up.  If you are able to make a monetary donation even a small one it would help and be SO MUCH appreciated.  Please ask any questions.

Thank you so much for the donations we have received so far! Let's keep this going so Bailey can get the things she needs to have an awesome beginning to school. She is trying so hard to be supportive and tell her Mom she will be fine with what she has. But y'all know parents want to give their kiddos what they need to get a good start. Please spread the word and help get it going around.

Well thanks to all of the amazing angels out there my baby girl is off to a great start this year and then some! I know she's not a baby and will be 17 in a few short months but she'll always be my baby. And thanks to all of you wonderful and kind souls she'll be able to start off as an adult with an understanding that people are good and it's ok to ask for help if and when it's needed and to remember to pay it forward every chance we get. I know she'll make you all proud because she's made me proud for 16 yrs. Not to mention or discount I also have a son that I'm proud of. He's served his first tour in Afghanistan and came home safely in March to his own family. I sit here with tears welling up thinking of all the moments I've felt like a failure as a parent but when I get to experience all the light y'all have bestowed on us I have no choice but to see I've done ok. Again, thank you all so much! Bailey will be creating a special thank you to be from her personally and I know you'll all be pleased. :-D
