Maurice Osborne Tuition Fund
$22,659 of $10,000 goal
In response to his brave act of heroism and on behalf of all women everywhere this fundraiser is to aid Mr. Osborne in paying for his school tuition and all expenses related. All proceeds raised through this page will go Mr. Osborne. Pay it forward and reward his good deed.
About the campaign:
I am a volunteer on behalf of a group of New York women who read Mr. Osborne's story and wanted to personally thank him for his courageous actions. We are all locally based and wanted to show our appreciation for keeping our commutes safer.
As a fellow Bed Stuy resident and active volunteer with multiple projects I felt compelled to support the people in my community.
Until this inception of this fundraiser there was no personal relationship with Mr. Osborne, however, now I am in contact with him and keeping him updated multiple times a day on activity and kind words shared.
What we raise is being spent to pay off his student loan debt of $2,500 from the first part of his medical assistant and to pay for the remainder of the tuition to finish his degree. This will also include his scrubs, textbooks, metrocard, and other supplies he may need. Past that what is raised will be put into a checking account for him to use for other expenses such as phone bill, or if we can raise enough, rent in a place of his own.
This money will be given directly to the school and the intuition that holds his loan. I will also personally help him set up a checking account, and find housing if need be.
I just want to commend you, Bridget, for putting this together. None of us have the right to tell you how to go about this because we didn't take initiative on making the project to begin with. You did that, and I'm sure Mr. Osborne is so grateful. I hope that Maurice gets all that he deserves and then some, thank you again for getting this started. :)
All the best as you continue your education and get back on your feet, Maurice--we need more people like you in health care. MLK Jr. says, "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." You are clearly demonstrating that in your own life and actions--thank you.
Bridget this is a wonderful pay it forward act of kindness and generosity. Would love to hear how this all works out and continue to follow his journey. His one act of kindness will end up being a life changing event for him. Nice to read about something good in the world for a change.

Ok so this the place to leave a message. Thank you Bridget for helping this young man. He truly deserves it. I'm also sorry for the young woman that had to endure what she went through.
