Recently, a woman I know from Facebook who has always been forthright, intelligent, and responsive said she was asking for help with fundraising. I thought it would be the most fruitful to give my time, instead of money, in helping her structure this, so David Korn Special Projects has been helping S. structure, identify, plan, and launch her fund raising efforts.
Fund raising is a serious thing, but the real issue, was getting all of her in one place, as to her repatriation back to her home country (English speaking), her serious medical illness, the struggle with the father of her beloved son, still as young as age twelve, as to being allowed to take him back home, legal expenses. She has four children, three grown, and being stuck in the USA and NOT a citizen yet being the primary, responsible care giver to her boy, combined with serious illness is crushing.
First thing, I built her a simple website, within which she could tell her story in a very clean way, and tie back to her Facebook, be sourced from Facebook, and lead to one of the major, well established donor sites.
She is so intelligent, so articulate, so strong. It is a privilege to know S. and help her.
