Penelope's Tuition at Just Right

Penelope is only eight years old, but she has already touched dozens of friends, acquaintances, and strangers with her charismatic, quirky, friendly personality. But life has not been easy for her, and she has fought to find her way through, especially when​ learning. She has been accepted at Just Right Academy (JRA) here in Durham. We are so lucky to find a school that fits her special needs in truly every way. It will be not just a place to learn, but a place to thrive and blossom. But the tuition is expensive, and even though her Dad and Stepfather work, her mother is disabled, so working out how to pay for the over $20k/yr tuition has been especially challenging. How can you help? That's why you're here right? Please donate, share, signal boost this campaign as much as you can! Also, visit the JRA website at http://justrightacademy.org to learn more about the school and opportunities to help other kids like Penelope. You can watch our video about her life (coming soon!), and you can read about autism in girls here: https://spectrumnews.org/news/diagnostic-tests-miss-autism-features-girls/ Thank you so much! Lou , DJ, and Rob (Penelope's parents)
