Review for Take Stock In Children, Miami, FL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

The Krewe of the Silver Slipper is an all female Mardi Gras Krewe. In 2007 and 2008 Take Stock In Children was our Charity. We bought two scholarships and I have the priviledge to mentor our first student, a 7th grader. I will stay with Courtney until she graduates High School and I hope she will continue to send me updates with how she does in college. I enjoy taking part in this young ladies life; weekly I am struck with how many aspects of her life she has going against her. Without Take Stock there is no way she would go to college. The scholarship is giving her great incentive to keep her grades to A's and B's and most importantly keep her from getting into trouble. Given her home environment, Take Stock is her life line to a better future.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Fully staff Santa Rosa county as well as others and send 1800 students to college. Now That's a stimulas package!
