My parents have always made sure I've had everything I ever needed even though we aren't wealthy people. They've put so much emphasis on helping me continue my education and have always supported my success. They have willingly taken on the burden of paying for my entire college education themselves. I am extremly appreciative of this but I don't want to put this burden on them, especially when I know that they'll offer the same to my younger brother when it's his turn to go to college. I love that they want to help me so much, and in return I want to help them.
I'm starting this fundraising account as a secret because I want to surprise them with paying for an entire semester's worth of tuition. I am currently a sophomore at Arizona State University majoring in Business and Nonprofit Management and will be applying to the Honors College soon, which, when I get in, will cost us even more than it does now. I'd love to be able to surprise my parents by taking a bit of the burden off of them and harnessing the power of lots of supportive people, who, even if they don't know me, want to see a young person succeed. Thank you so much to everyone who supports this fundraiser, and remember that every little bit helps!
