My name is Allison, and I want to start off by thanking you for the time you’re taking to read this. I am a 32 year old woman, currently working as a nurses aide in long term care, and I am looking for a way to be able to take the first step towards a future goal; a good education.
I am looking to go to my local college to take the 2 year Therapeutic Recreation program. I would love to take the 4 year program at the university which would allow me to become a certified Recreational Therapist, but that seems so far out of my league financially as the tuition cost is far more than college.
With that being said, I am asking for help financially to be able to take the 2 year college program. It is around $4000 a year plus books, and I have living expenses of around 1600 a month; rent, bills, gas and food. I find it incredibly difficult to work full time and be able to devote the kind of time needed to achieve a high level of success, so I am looking to instead put all the focus on my studies full time. To go to university, it is a 4 year program at approximately $12,000 per year plus books and living expenses. This seems so far out of my league but just in case someone is feeling extra generous, I thought I’d elaborate on those costs as well.
My long-term goal is to open a non-profit facility in my local area that focuses on providing various recreational activities as a means of mental health rehabilitation, with a special focus on military members and those with various forms of trauma and PTSD. I feel it would be beneficial to have the education and knowledge in the field to be able to provide the best care I can for those who require it.
Your generous donation would not only be helping one person better their future, but the countless other individuals that will benefit from this future facility.
Thank you so much again for your time and consideration. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
