Give A Laptop: Help Foster Children Attend College

UPDATE: A big thank you to everyone who donated! We are closing the fundraiser for this year but encourage any additional donations to be made directly to OneSimpleWish , which like many other nonprofits is open year-round.

UPDATE: GoFundMe charges fees - if you wish to donate without fees, you may donate to @dianaading on Venmo. Each Venmo donation will be counted on GoFundMe as an offline donation (please indicate anonymity preference).

Help make holiday wishes come true! Your donation will be contributing to laptops for Osiris, Anastacia, and Sabrina, three deserving high-school and college-age foster children. These young women have asked for these laptops so they can attend college, where they hope to study cardiology, nursing, and more. Help them achieve their dreams!

Each laptop will cost $300. We hope to grant these holiday gift requests by the end of the year through One Simple Wish.

We appreciate each and every donation, of any size. Every dollar counts! At the end of this fundraiser, we will be directly donating every dollar to Osiris, Anastacia, and Sabrina.

There are many other deserving young adults on One Simple Wish who also require laptops or tablets ($100 each) to continue education. We hope to fulfill as many wishes as possible, so if we exceed our original goals, we will continue to donate every dollar that comes in. 

We also encourage you to grant other wishes or donate money directly to One Simple Wish on https://www.onesimplewish.org/.

From the One Simple Wish website:

At One Simple Wish we believe that every child deserves love, hope and joy.

Every year nearly 500,000 children are impacted by abuse, neglect and trauma and spend time in our nation’s foster care system. It can be lonely, confusing and a bit scary. Through our innovative wish-granting platform, you can send some love to a child who needs it. When wishes come true, kids not only have a chance to just be kids, but they can also make important connections, experience new things and find their passion!

One Simple Wish was honored with a Top-rated Award for 2019 from GreatNonprofits, and received a 4 out of 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, signifying high accountability, transparency, and financial health.
