Making College a Reality for 2 Seniors

$1,100 of $500 goal

Raised by 30 people in 3 months
This year, our AVID Program will have its FIRST TWO GRADUATES.

Both of these students are FIRST GENERATION College Students.

Life has not been easy for them and I thought that perhaps we could make one of the concerns for college, A RELIABLE LAPTOP, more of a reailty.

I got this idea from a friend in California. Every year, her network crowd sources to get laptops for as many students that they can support.

SO, HAPPY 40th birthday to me! 

Let's show these students that we are behind them.

They've conquered adversity!

They've taken AP and Honors classes!

They've believed that college for them should be more than an dream but  reality.

Let's give them a gift and hope for the coming year.

We can get them a computer for about $250 each.

Any funds above that (which would be amazing) will go to these grads.

They will need financial aid. Maybe we can help them along their way.

Nothing would give me greater joy than to present these kiddos with not only laptops but something above that!

So, starting MARCH 27, 2019, let's see what we can do!!

Much Love,

Ben

Ok, so this is the LAST LAST UPDATE (sort of)

Tomorrow is the day where we make some dreams come true!

This afternoon, a friend donated the final $130 to help us hit $500 and a laptop for each graduate!!!

If you donated, please shoot me a text if you want to come. The celebration is tomorrow from 9:45 - 10:25 in the AVID room.

These young ladies will see the power of community!

Wow! What a morning with some of my favorite people, the Rotary Club of East Cobb. They stepped up and gave $350!!

With just a little more, we can hand each kid $500 on the 24th?

Anyone want to join in the fun?
I’ve given three times already!

Thanks for the support!
