Leslie's Emergency Fund

We all love Leslie and she's been there for each of us in all sorts of ways - healing a broken heart, babysitting our kids, or encouraging us to be our best selves. And in the last 14 years I can't remember her ever asking for help in return. But now she needs us, friends. She's in a real bind and is one year away from completing her Masters in Occupational Therapy and has just found out she reached her lifetime maximum for OSAP and has exhausted other funding options and does not have enough time to work her three jobs to come up with the rest of her tuition before September 8. If we could all pitch in whatever we can, we can help offset her tuition fees and help her complete the goal she's been working towards for the last ten years. She's too proud to ask herself, but it would be wonderful if we could all come together to help her through this unforeseen situation.
