Help Me Graduate College. I really need all the help I can.

Hello:

I had never thought of using the tools of online fundraising as a method to help me raise the money I need to fund my education.

In all fairness you all deserve to know why I have resorted in putting faith into hoping this may help my cause even if by a bit.

Like many, lately my family has been struggling with financial problems. I have been attending California State University of Northridge for the past 3 years. My major is Child Development. I want to become a teacher because I truly love kids. It has been truly hard to fund for school. I have been doing everything from taking out school loans, babysitting, and borrowing money from people. This is my last year for school, but it has been even tougher because my school is telling me I will not graduate on time or at all if I don’t take the remaining classes that I need. They told me I need to enroll in winter and summer session which is very expensive. I can barely afford fall and spring semester now. It is hard for my family to help out with college because my mother is the only one that is working and my father is ill due to being in the military for 20 years. He can’t work because he is not able to since fighting for his country got him unable to work. He tries to help out the best that he can. My mother is always trying to save money as much as she can to help out, but bills and the mortgage never stop coming in, and that saved money became less and less as weeks passed by.

It is very hard to be away from home to focus on school when my family was struggling so much. Even through all this, my parent’s taxes from the previous year showed them working and earning money, therefore I barely get enough financial aid to cover my tuition fees.

With all of this happening, my main focus is to get through school and graduate.

I humbly ask anyone that can donate any amount at all to please help me to reach the goal in being able to afford my school tuition for this following semester.

Thank you for reading this, and if you can't help financially than please assist me in spreading the word! I appreciate from the very bottom of my heart any kind of support I can receive even if they are kind words of encouragement and hope. Thank you so much.
