A small fundraiser for back to school.I need to raise money for 100 back to school outfits (which comes includes a shirt, pant, shoes, and back pack with a notebook, pack of pencils, pens, and a binder. For middle and high school students.

Hello, My name is Fatima Jones. I want to start a Back -to-School Fundraiser called Esteem. This fundraiser focus on helping 100 student with a school outfit and back pack with supplies. I know this might sound it's vain or can't see the benefit in the cause . But, it's very surprising how important it it. The sales is the third highest shopping time in the year next to Christmas. The affect the media has put on this time of year can affect and strain parents.

During this recession , it's really hard for parents to keep up with bills let alone think about "the trendiest outfit " or "keeping you child in style".
I have seen it first hand. I work in a popular clothing in new york city. The store is kinda of like forever 21. A mother walked in with three girls. She was buying the 2 youngest items and the older one child was in tears. When i had asked the mother why her child was crying she said it was because "she couldn't afford to buy all three of them new clothes for school. I felt it was sad and i could relate.

I come from a home with 5 kids and half of my life i grew in a shelter.I know what it's like to have to sit back and let the younger one get when i didn't. I know my mother didn't make me be the one without all the time because she didn't love me.I was just old enough to understand that when you dont have it, you just DONT HAVE IT"

So i have decided to due this drive to help raise money for this cause. I have a huge discount in the job i worked with. My Manager agreed i can use my employee discount to help buy items for the back to school packages.So far i have brought 10 outfits with my own money. I just need more help towards my cause. I had posted the ad on craigslist and got more responses for help .. more then i planned. Any help would be Greatly appreciated.

If you know anyone who needs help, feel free to email me with sizes and age. THANK YOU!
