Site visitors help student get to college

Today’s the last day to help get one of our “urgent need” students to college. This 17-year-old homeschool graduate comes from a challenging family situation, and needs only $250 more to be able to enroll in college tomorrow.

J.R.S. comes from a single parent home, and his mother has not been able to take care of him recently. Another family has taken him in, helping out as much as possible, but they have two of their own children to support in college.  Small donations will add up and help this young man get to college. You can donate to his college (see our urgent need page for the school) or donate through our PayPal account on the “About Us” page. Any donations that come in today will be sent this evening. If requested, we will put you in touch with the family he is currently living with.

We realize that by visiting this site, you’re most likely also a homeschooler looking for college funds. Our family is in the same situation. Still, we’d like for you to consider donating a small amount that could make a life-changing difference for this fellow homeschooler. If, by some chance, anyone with greater resources is viewing this site, there are seven more students looking for funds to enter school this fall. See our “Urgent Need for Fall” page.

UPDATE: We were able to send J.R.S. $30 toward his goal of $270. Thanks to those who participated. With the addition of some odd jobs J.R.S. has found to do, he hopes to be able to enroll today.
