Can You Spare a Dime? Help a College Kid!

I'm posting this on behalf of my pal Antoinette. If you possibly have a dollar burning a hole in your pocket and want to put it to a good cause instead of spending it on Cheetos at the vending machine, consider donating it to Kayla. Not only is she a smart cookie, she's a cutie pie.


Keep a Student in College

Kayla Johnson is currently attending the University of Maryland; her goal is to become a Bio-Chemical Engineer. She graduated from a science school in Brooklyn and was ranked number 20 in her class, her GPA was 3.9 and she was class Vice President. Her future is so bright. Six months ago it seemed all financial requirements were met so she could attend school, but life has taken a turn, and now she has to pay for her own education so she is working part time in addition to attending school full time. While she was able to get some financial aid and take out a student loan (the dollar amount was limited for first-year students) it is not enough to cover her tuition. She has a deadline of October 1, 2009 to pay $3,900. Please help Kayla stay in school. Donations can be made directly to the University of Maryland

Any amount donated is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!!!
