A laptop for Jamie who will be studying for her GED and is turning 18 in May

Posted Apr 17, 2017
Jamie will take the bus to get to school however, much of the work can be done online. Having a computer will allow her to better access the education she needs. It will also allow her to look for bus routes to get around the city since she has no car and to communicate with her friends and family which is difficult today without access to email. Today, she goes to the public library to access a computer. It seems that this one tool will allow her to function better as the young adult that she is about to become on her 18th birthday in May.

Learn More About Jamie

Jamie is 19 years old and lives in Charlotte, NC

Jamie is a 17 year old girl who has a strong desire to become independent. For her that means enrolling in CPCC’s course to prep for the GED exam (June 2017), keeping a job and maintaining good behavior so that she can live in an independent living group home (Legacy Hall). Due to deep family dysfunction and personal behavioral issues, Jamie has not consistently attended school in three years. Her recent test results show that she bright enough to certainly complete her GED so that she can gain meaningful employment to support herself. She badly wants to get her high school diploma and become a tattoo artist so that she can support herself and live independently.

Hey We just received Jamie's thank you note! It will be on the way to you soon but here's a sneak peek "Thank you for the laptop for my GAL Jamie. She was thrilled to get it. Now she can do her school work, have an electronic calendar and be able to communicate so much easier. Previously, she needed to take the bus to the school library(not always easy). Your generosity is much appreciated" Thank you for making a positive impact on the life of a child! Continue being awesome! :)
