Hello, my name is Shamica. I desperetly need your assistance to help raise funds for needy school children who attend Johnson College Prep High School located in Englewood on the Southside of Chicago. These students are in dire need of a lot of things that I would love to give to them but I can't help them all by myself. Like the old saying goes..."It takes a village to raise a child," and I ask you to please help me raise funds for these needy children to provide for them buscards, school uniforms (and accessories), school shoes, basic hygeine products, and winter coats (and accessories).

This idea came to me over a month ago when my brother went to school and they told him that he needed school shoes that comply with the dress code. Suddenly I thought to myself, 'if my brother need some shoes, how many more school kids are in need of shoes, busfare, school uniforms, hygiene products and more, but their parents or legal gaurdians can't afford it?' Then I thought to do something about it- you know, be the SOLUTION!

Afterwards I called several Englewood high schools in Chicago, Illinois in order to ask if I could raise money for shoes, buscards, uniforms, etc. for their needy students and Johnson College Prep High School gave me the OKAY to start this fundraiser for their needy children. I am so excited and humbled for this great opportunity to help these young children but I can't do it all by myself I truly need your help! Goal is to raise enough money to help a min. of 20 students at the Johnson College Prep High School. I'm allocating at least $85.00 for buscards, $50.00 for school uniforms and accessories, $50.00 for school shoes, $50.00 for basic hygeine products, and $100.00 for a winter coat and accesories. This equals out to $335.00 per child. I am increasing this amount to $350.00 per child to make sure everyting is covered. So the amount needed to help these children is $7,000 ($350.00 x 20 needy students= $7K). GIVE @ Gofundme.com/helppoorchildren

    What are the parents doing to provide for the children they produced ?
    This is a bad time to ask people like me that have just received Property Tax bills, with the largest portion of my hard earned money going to the Chicago Public Schools, of which I did not attend, neither did my children.

Englewood Votes! is a non partisan voter registration and political awareness campaign designed to increase voter turnout and educate voters in Greater Englewood.

Englewood Votes! aims to make all residents understand that voting gives our community a collective voice that will demand and work for positive changes in the neighborhood.

We have come to understand that some elected officials and political leaders pay more attention to and funnel more resources to those neighborhoods and wards with high voter turnout. We have been advised that some state lawmakers subscribe to the notion that people in Englewood don’t deserve anything because they say we don’t contribute anything to society. The campaign seeks to debunk that notion in the community, statewide and nationwide.

Englewood Votes ! always welcomes supporters, donors and neighbors to join this particular effort to educate and organize residents to create a safer and more livable environment.
