Friends Funding Ayodele's Schooling!
Armen Henderson started the campaign

Hey everyone, an international classmate of ours (Ayodele) is in a bit of a bind. The potential cosigners to his loans have all been denied, and being as though he is not from here...finding alternate ways of funding his education have been hard. Long story short, he needs to pay his tuition for this semester of $10,000 by Friday or else he will have to go back to his country. I tried to put myself in his shoes and imagine how I'd feel in a similar situation with no family support and one shot to get it right, here in the states; I'd be devastated if I had to go home and forgo an opportunity that some take for granted. 

Now, I know one person doesn't have $10,000 to give out of pocket but there is power in numbers. Here's the action I propose to us as class..if 100 people could give $100 dollars, or 150 people give $66...we could help someone stay in school and fulfill their dream. Yes, it sounds like one of those cheesy commercials on tv but the choice to give would directly affect someone we know and see everyday. I'm gonna put my money where my month is because I know how important this is. With the response we've had so far, if each person donates $100+ we will reach our goal. That said, feel free to donate how ever much you can.
