Stay tuned! I am gonna need 7 helpers $$$


My seven students for 2018 are gearing up to take their college entrance exams.

All straight A students
All great human beings
All smart (I think I already said that LOL)
All in the Beca Blanca scholarship project

Within the next week or so they will know how much the exam costs....and I need sponsors to help out!

I looked online and it seems that the cost for the last one was $1200 pesos for those going to UABCS (La Paz) and $1400 pesos for the TEC (Santa Rosalia and La Paz) and my future doctor (Ensenada) might have to pay a bit more.

Looking for 7 angels ...

OMG thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks (from each of the kids)

What a relief....what a joy.....and NO money now amigos, we have to wait until the universities announce exactly how much it is gonna cost.

La doctora it is akmaxx

Thanks again, everyone. I do hope you can come and meet your sponsored kid one day! These are truly neat kids.

I don't do paypal but we have an account here in Mexico and my mom has an account with wells fargo in the US that we solely use for my scholarship bambinos.

You may consider opening a PayPal account to make it easier on people willing to contribute.

actually don't even need an account.
You can send money from paypal to any email address or phone number - the reciever has to jump through some hoops to access it,
not sure how that would work in Mexico,
but i send money to my brother via his cell phone number ,
and he just transfers it into a bank account (in USA) .

She is friendly, outgoing, very smart and has a brother in the same class who is not in our program, he doesn't have good enough grades. I think he repeated a year but he will go to college.

Thanks for your help and the other kids should be sending me their paperwork soon too.
