I wanted to thank the people that took the time out to donate to our essay contest for AVID Seniors in our community.
Special thank you to:
Kinah- Twitter: http://twitter.com/KinahLaShaPR
& last but not least,
Pretty Little Black Girl- http://www.prettylittleblackgirl.com/
Check out Pretty Little Black Girl. They have a PLBG Store (With shirts, & pins), & they’re offering an Internship. Most importantly, they are trying to send one child from each region to a summer camp. Tell them we sent you!
Once again, thank you to everyone that RT’d our tweets, donated, or contributed in some sort of way. We really appreciate it.
We were able to reach ABOVE our goal. We contributed funds to the essay contest as well. So, one student will be awarded $100 that will go towards their first semester/Qrt away to college. Although it’s not $1,000 it’ll still come in handy for the student to have something for whatever it is they need to use it towards (of course school related). I myself remember the times, when different people helped me throughout college with as little as $25, and it helped.
We will be reviewing their essays very soon and can’t wait!
