Thank you for taking the time to read this and consider donating to this very worthy cause. A year ago I started a scholarship foundation at Long Beach High School in New York to honor my mother, Geri Yellin who passed away. My mother had significant challenges including but not limited to learning disability and a significant heart condition (transposition of the two great vessels). She was told that she would never be able to have a functional life, yet she brought so much joy into the lives of all around her. She was compassionate, caring, giving and a fighter. So much so that she had me! My mother dreamed of affording me a college education. I am definitely on my way. However, this scholarship is not for me. It is an annual scholarship to help afford OTHERS support for their college education. I hope everyone will consider this worthy cause. As this scholarship grows, I hope not only to support students at Long Beach High School but donate to other schools around the state and country. I may not be able to bring back my mother, but I am determined to keep her legacy alive.
