Let's Help Esther

One of my favorite parts of visiting Esther is that the living room consists of a couch, and a stand with all the trophies her daughters have won over the years. It's clear what Esther values in life, but she also deserves a trophy. She raised three highly decorated Ivy League graduates as a single, working, undocumented mother. Inspired by their mother's experience, both of the daughters who have graduated are embarking on careers in nonprofit work and community organizing.

Esther is still working as a housekeeper and has fallen behind several months on rent. (Of course Esther wasn't going to tell a soul, but her daughters stumbled across the past due notice.) This campaign is to recognize her tremendous accomplishment as a parent. In lieu of a trophy, hopefully we can give her a bit of security.  And maybe a trip. To Connecticut. Or Pennsylvania.
