A Brighter Future

Dear Family and Friends,
      I am coming to you wonderful people who care about and love my daughter Raven to ask for help. I have never been one to ask for handout or favors, as I am extremely stubborn and independent. I however come to as for help for my daughter.
      It has recently come to us that the wonderful people who helped pay for Ravens school tuition can no longer help us. Raven has recently finished her first year at a wonderful Montessori pre-school. This school has been an amazing blessing for our bright and advanced little girl. They have helped her learn and grow in so many wonderful ways.
     We cannot afford the tuition on our own. I chose not to work full time so that I can be home more with Raven to nurture her in a way only a dedicated mother can. I do work part time and pick up babysitting jobs when I can. Troy is working for himself and has a job for a consistent paycheck. I will also be working with her school this upcoming year to earn a discount on her tuition.      
     We would love for Raven to be able to continue her education at this amazing school. We are asking for donations towards her tuition cost. We have a separate account that is used only for her school cost. No donation will be used for anything other then the school cost.

     We will be 100% up front and honest about the donations and will only use them for this school. All donations will receive a very special gift from our amazing daughter as a Thank you. Thank you all so much for the love and support you give us and Raven on her journey in knowledge.

Much love and gratitude,
Troy and Shawnnee Miranda
