About OneGoal - www.onegoalgraduation.org
OneGoal is working to create a world where all students can earn a college degree and define their future. This one-of-a-kind program partners with high schools in low-income communities to bridge the postsecondary degree divide. A three-year model, OneGoal begins as a credit-bearing class during students’ junior and senior year of high school and continues to provide individualized support for a full year after graduation.
New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof recently recognized OneGoal in his 2020 holiday giving guide. Their work has never been so high-stakes. While educational inequity is deeply entrenched in our city and across the country, COVID-19 is exacerbating this injustice at an alarming rate. Estimates show that one million high schoolers may drop out due to Covid-19 and we are in the midst of an unprecedented college enrollment crisis. The challenge is especially acute for students of color and those from low-income communities who are not only confronting the degree divide, but also the digital divide.
Your contribution will make a difference supporting the dreams of students who are often overlooked and help create a more equitable world for generations of students to come.
Live Like Roo Foundation
About Live Like Roo Foundation - www.livelikeroo.org
Live Like Roo Foundation is a 501c3 organization that helps dogs and their owners through cancer diagnosis by providing emotional and financial support. Roo was rescued from Chicago Animal Care and Control in April 2015. While getting a dental, we found out that he had bone cancer. We created a bucket list for him and for the next 6 months he Lived Like Roo... like there was no tomorrow. It was a great time and a reminder that we should all live like there is no tomorrow. Now, we are helping other dogs and cats with cancer do the same.
