Hi, my name is Jennifer. Sometime last week I came across a Reddit post that made me smile. Tiffany, a mom of four, had talked about how she handmade a beautiful manta ray for son's birthday. She was hand making his birthday present due to financial constraints. When the internet saw this, they responded in a big way by sending lots of stuffed manta rays for his birthday.
When I saw the outpouring of love, I wanted to do something nice for them as well so, I contacted the mama and arranged for the whole family to have a day at the zoo, complete with a manta ray feeding and touch pool experience. The whole family was thrilled and got to spend a special day together.
Throughout the course of this interaction, I have been fortunate enough to get to know Tiffany. During that process she shared with me some of the financial struggle her family has been going through after recently relocating away from an abusive situation. While she is working hard to better her life and situation, however she is currently struggling to keep her head above water while homeschooling her four children. It is my hope that this fundraiser can help her with basic necessities, school supplies and car repairs, as her car is no longer working.
