Ive started a new job this past week fundraising for refugee children all over the world, its been a pretty challenging job, because I have to stand outside on the sidewalk and approach strangers, tell them about my cause and ask for donations.
It got me thinking that there are a lot of people in my life that could use some help and that I could use my fundraising skills to help them, Evelyne especially! I was also inspired by a new friend Gene-Manuel who needed some help, asked for it and received it! He's the one that turned me on to http://www.indiegogo.com/ to use it as a fundraising platform.
I did my masters degree with Evelyne, and she is one of the sweetest and kindest souls I know. She sacrificed soo much to leave her family in Cameroon, West Africa to come study in the US for 2 years.
She recently informed me that she wouldnt be able to pay her four children's school fees for this coming fall. We both graduated school in May, and she has returned to her family and has been job searching ever since, even with her new credentials she has yet to find a position. I know how much she values education and want to make sure that her children have the bright future they deserve.
