A few months ago, my friend Melly was diagnosed with SLE (Systemic lupus erythematosus). She's been very sick and had to drop out of college to recover. It seems that schools are run more like businesses than academic institutions now, because when this happened they cancelled her financial aid, leaving her $1,325 in debt. This is what the school thinks they are owed and they refuse to consider any further applications to study until this amount is paid. It doesn't even touch any future tuition fees.

She's a very talented writer and was studying English Literature with hopes of becoming a teacher. But without help, that can't happen. She's set up a campaign on IndieGogo in order to help her raise the cash. If 66 people can donate $20, the debt will be paid, but any amount at all would make such a difference. I don't usually post things like this. In fact I never have. Anywhere. But as her friend, I've seen a lot of what it's done and I know it's genuine.
