Alex's Education Fund!

Donation protected
We are trying to raise money to jumpstart the college fund of a very special young man named Alex!  

He was my student for a few years at Mission High School and a highly resilient youth who has overcome much trauma to graduate HS and make his way in the world, especially difficult since he has no family here to support him.

He's got a backstory that's out of a Steinbeck novel, tragic and depressing and rough, escaping from El Salvador to San Francisco, but he's made it through all that with nothing but sheer grit and hope and humility.

However, he's all on his own here and after spending thousands of dollars of his hard earned money to pay for lawyers to get documented, braces to fix his nice teeth, and to simply survive in San Francisco, he could use our financial support for continuing his education! 

Alex is one of the stars of an amazing Snap Judgment show called "Senior Mix-Tape" that you can listen to below to get a better understanding of the life struggles of a young immigrant.

He's an exceptional fellow, as bright as he is generous, as hardworking as he is optimistic, and will do great things with his life, but deserves a good, old fashioned break to pave the way for stability, independence and a college degree!

He's hoping to get to a 4 year college in the next year or so and will need funds to pay for the application process, living expenses and look for scholarships for tuition.

Alex is most grateful for all the emotional support he's received over the years  and greatly appreciates any financial help we can send his way...

Much love wonderful peoples!  Thank you kindly for your help...
