Rachael & Two Kids Fundraiser

Rachael became a single mother this year: she is raising a five year old daughter and a two year old son while working as an independent consultant with Usborne books and more and teaching English via the computer to overseas students. She works when her children are napping, after they go to bed, and typically wakes up hours before her children to work as well.

She has been barely making it each month and would not have survived if her parents had not allowed her and the children to live rent free in their home.

The funds raised will go towards:
- unexpected car repairs in the last month
- tuition costs to begin her new career
- childcare costs as she returns to school in January
- counseling services for her oldest child

Her two sisters are hosting this fundraiser for anyone who is able to donate towards her and her children to cover these unexpected costs. 

Our goal is for Rachael to enter Christmas without these bills hanging over her. 

Any gift would be an incredible gift to Rachael & her children, especially as we enter the Christmas season. 

Whether you can give up a Starbucks holiday drink and donate those funds, or feel led to give more, your gift will be greatly appreciated and make a tremendous impact on Rachael and her children. You are investing in their future.

This fundraiser is being hosted by Rachael's two sisters who are doing all they can to ensure that Rachael and her children are provide for.

Rachael is returning to school in January, after being a stay at home mom, and will have her medical billing certification by the Fall of 2019. 

Any funds raised above and beyond the $5,000 will go towards meeting their day to day expenses while Rachael is in school.
