Supporting a Latin@ Scholar

I've just returned from the Hispanic Theological Initiative, where I attended during my doctoral program and now have returned as faculty.  While there, I learned of a desperate situation with one of my close colleague-friends, who is in a dire situation.  Will you consider helping?  

I'm currently fundraising for one of my close Latin@ colleague-friends.  She's now back in the L.A. area trying to write her dissertation and badly wants to finish to graduate in May so she can find a job and provide for her children more adequately. Her parents are exhausted by a full house of young kids and are unable to provide child care, because they have full-time jobs. What prompted this fundraiser is that my colleague is going through a divorce from her unemployed husband who is in poor mental health. In order to write and to fulfill her adjuncting teaching commitment at a local L.A. university, she needs paid child care and gas money. She is also in need of food, clothing, and diaper money for a rapidly growing family. She yearns for a modest home of their own in the LA area.  If you can help with just 20 dollars, or more, we can raise enough money to help my colleague afford paid child care this year and finish her dissertation.  The Latin@ story is one of survival in one way or another.  As an underrepresented minority in higher education, I hope you will consider donating to help my close colleague-friend have the means to pay for child care, so that she has time to write her dissertation this year.
