Can you help Andrea stay in college?

My name is Luke Williams. I am getting ready to start my second year of college at Miami University in Ohio where classes begin in two days. My best friend, Andrea Wilhelm, just received word that her $23,000 college loan was not renewed for this year, mostly because of the economic problems we have all been facing. I am trying to do whatever I can to help Andrea stay in school.

Here's my idea. I am asking everyone who sees this to donate a dollar, just one dollar, by clicking on the donate button below and then e-mailing a link to this blog to all your friends and family and co-workers who might donate a dollar and forward this again. I figure if one out of four people who see this send in a donation, I will need to get this to about 100,000 people. I know it's possible and together we can make it happen.

Andrea lives in Pittsburgh, PA, with her mom and two sisters. She has a twin who is also going to college. Andrea's mom works in data collection at a small magazine company; her father is out of the picture. Andrea is majoring in Creative Writing and minoring in Music. She is a creative, artistic person who loves music and theater.
If you can help, please click on the donate button on this page. From there, you can use a credit card to make a donation through PayPal. (See sidebar for instructions on donating by check or money order.) If you can't help personally, I still hope you will forward the link to this page to as many people as possible.

I can't thank you enough for taking the time to read this. Please donate today and pass this on. Our classes begin August 24th.
