Tuition Assistance for Single Mom

Hello My name is CLSmith,

As you may or may not know I'm a student at Walden University, studying Public Administration with a concentration in Law and Public Policy and I hope to complete the program in December 2014 with graduation scheduled for January 2015. Two years ago, I made a decision to withdraw from the University because I depleted all my funds from the government, lost my job, and had 3 very important people in my life to pass away over 10 months in 2012. I found myself in a very difficult place. The last 4 years have been very difficult for me and my sons. I have used all my savings to keep food on the table and a stable home environment for my family.

Recently, I petitioned Walden University to return to school. In my petition, I had to explain a plan of action and timeline for completing the program. I was approved by the Walden to return to school which I am very excited, but I simply do not have any money. Finishing school was a promise that I made to by grandmother before she passed away.

I need your help. I am asking 75 individuals, friends and family, including you to please make a $50 contribution to help me raise the needed $4,500 which is required for me to get back into school. If you can help me, please make your $50 donation by August 15, 2014.  I'm requesting the deadline so that I'm able to get the money to school by August 20th, 2014.

Sincerely with love,



Chalonda Smith
