Nobody puts Gaby in the Corner

Please help me send my baby girl Gaby to college. She is on her way to the University of California and will be moving into dorms on the 24th of August. We have been planning since she was a young girl for college. She was the only 3rd grader that could tell you how many years she had left of elemetary school, high school, college, AND grad school! She has always known what she wanted and has the moxie(and grades)to go after it.

I was a single mom until I met my husband and together we have been raising 3 kids for the last 15 years together. We have been saving our pennies to put 2  kids through college and our last little one is going into the third grade soon. Gaby has always done her part to help the family out and in the last couple of years she has worked summers, worked as an intern for the SF Public Defender's Office, and has been an apprentice in a San Franscisco youth theatre where she mentors inner city youth and participates in various community based projects. She is a mock trial star and has big plans to attend law school after college. Her hope is to work for the public defenders office so she can help out her community. She has won "Best Defense Lawyer" in mock trial in San Francisco 2 years in a row and she absolutely loves the study of law. 

She has receieved all the help she could get from us, our family, her grades earned her scholarships and grants, and this week she has her last payment due after loans. We did not know we would be short until this past weekend due to a missing portion and now we are desperate to make her final payment by the 20th of this month to avoid being dropped from her classes and barred from moving into the dorms due to the holds. We have exhausted all of our possibilities and now we are asking for help.

Please, please consider helping us out. She is a bright young girl who has big dreams to serve her community ina professional manner. She has a beautiful heart and she works hard and she is a worthy investment.
