DeKalb County's Warren Technical High School students are asking for financial assistance to attend HOSA Leadership Conference.

Your Donation Gives Special Needs Students a Once-In-A-Lifetime Trip to Orlando

My good friend Ms. Ashley Doolittle requested that I post this call for help for those who have the financial means to help a good cause.  If you are able. Please Help!

The students at Warren Technical High School in northeast metro Atlanta face a double challenge: not only do they all have special educational needs, but they also come from some of the lowest-income households in the region.

Take Bobby (not his real name). His family is homeless. Or Keisha, who is one of 11 children of a single mom.

Despite these impossible odds, Bobby and Keisha along with two other fellow students just won top honors in the State of Georgia for demonstrating superior personal care, life support skills, and speaking and interviewing skills.

This achievement has earned them a coveted spot at the HOSA Leadership Conference in Orlando in June, where they can compete at a national level, make connections with students like themselves, and take the next step toward a mainstream job in the healthcare field. They will also have an opportunity to visit Disney World and experience some joy in their lives.

The problem is, these students have to pay their own way, and they don’t have the funds to make the trip.

Your donation would give these students a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be celebrated for their accomplishments and give them the confidence to know that they can achieve more.

Their teacher, Jacquetta Lindsey, has given her energy and heart for these students to thrive in a not-ideal situation due to their disabilities and financial burdens. The achievements of her students shows that she and Warren Tech are accomplishing their mission of giving students the life skills they need to be successful in the workforce and in life.

We have all stayed up many nights thinking of how this trip can be possible for Bobby, Keisha, and their fellow students. They deserve and have earned this chance.

Please help them make this once-in-a-lifetime trip! No donation is too small.
