Help raise funds for my mom

Hello there! My name is Joelle, and I'm a sophomore in college with two little sisters in elementary school and a brother in high school.

My parents decided to get a divorce a few months ago. My mother is an ambitious women, and selflessly gave up her promising career in environmental science to care for her four children. The money you give would go towards my mom's attorney fees. Can you believe attorneys charge $300 an hour?? 

I can't divulge any details because it would possibly affect court proceedings, but I can tell you that your support would not only help my mom, but also my family. My family means the world to me and I'm very worried about all these upcoming costs. Any amount given is extremely appreciated, and will only be used for the appropriate causes. 

(I didn't want to post any pictures of my family in case it gets me in trouble with either of my parent's attorneys. Additionally, I am acting independently in raising funds.)
