Help for Shaela Evenson

Shaela Evenson, in her 8th month of pregnancy, was fired from her job as a Catholic middle school teacher for being an unwed pregnant woman. Yes, you read that correctly. In 2014, this 8-year veteran educator was fired from a job at which she excelled (according to her peers and supervisors) for carrying a child out of wedlock.

You can read the newspaper report here.

Besides being an outstanding educator and an inspiration to her young students, Shaela is in a long-term, committed relationship. This pregnancy is hard-fought and very much wanted. 

Shaela has retained the services of an attorney, and is confident that she will see justice in the courts. However, the power bill and groceries require income today.

Please help us ease some of the stress for Shaela and her family. Any amount helps - consider giving $10 for every teacher you remember fondly, or $20 for a package of diapers needed in the very near future.

Every cent raised (minus the tiny fee for this site), will go to Shaela. She would never ask for this money, but she needs it. Please help today.
