Please share – University of the People – learning for free isn’t easy

We can help making a difference

Sharing with you a message I received from University of the People.

If you think learning is one of the best ways of turning the world a better place, you can share it too and make a contribution to this non-profit organisation.

Dear Linda,

I know that I have contacted you a few times asking you to donate to the Scholarship Fund at the University of the People.  I am reaching out again, one last time, because the need for financial assistance for our students is so critical.

We are incredibly close to meeting our goal of raising $250,000 for students by December 31, 2011!

I cannot tell you how difficult life has been for Sebukware from Rwanda, Elisee from Haiti and Naylea from Peru. Many of our students can’t continue to pursue a better life without your donation.

We really need your help.

 Please come forward, give any amount you can and help us reach our goal.

 Kindly donate online now.

Thank you for not only caring, but for taking action.
