Help My Student And His Mother
$5,255 of $5,000 goal
Raised by 154 people in 12 months
Being a teacher, I have the pleasure of being around, not only amazing students, but amazing parents. One such parent, a single mom of two boys, was recently evicted and lost her job. I have her son in class and she is such an incredible woman, and I am hoping that this money will help her and her two sons find and afford a temporary place to rent. They are currently staying with a friend and I'm hoping that we can help them get a place within the month. Also, being a teacher, I am optimistic and hopeful that compassion and kindness will prevail, and I try to practice what I preach to my students. So please consider helping in any way: $1, $5, $10... there is no such thing as a small good deed.+ Read More
The moment you get to tell your student's mom (who is so inspiring, and who was recently evicted and lost her job) that 155 people that she never met gave over $5,000 to help her and her two boys get back on their feet. Thank you so much for helping me make this happen. Kindness matters.
Good morning! I just want to thank everyone again. I disabled donations because we exceeded our goal and so I can present the check tomorrow. I will be sharing her response and reaction to this amazing gift.
Thank you again to everyone. Next week (Thursday) I will be surprising Melanie (my student’s mother) with a check thanks to all of you. We will record this moment so everyone knows how their donation helped an amazing woman and family.
It brings me so much joy to announce that we have met and even exceeded our goal, and with your help, we will give an amazing mother and family the help they so desperately needed. You are all proved that kindness matters. I can't wait to share her receiving her amazing gift.
