I would like to take a moment to personally thank you for helping me out in my time of need. You have lifted so much stress off my back and helped my daughter and I get through the rest of the semester. Deepest appreciation,

Thank you all for your generous award to help me with my living expenses! Because of wonderful groups like yours, I was able to get my daughter the tutoring she needs, get my car repaired, and pay some major bills that I wasn't able to pay before. Your generosity is most appreciated.

Thank you all so much for the incredibly generous scholarship. It has not only made my final semester possible but has allowed me to more fully focus on my student teaching. I appreciate it more than you all will ever know and am looking forward to graduating in May. Thank you.

As we all know, life sometimes throws a curve ball. Without help from generous people like you, people could potentially give up their dreams; not because they want to, but because they have to. I want to let you know that by awarding us the Blueberry Flexible Aid Fund, you have given my wife and I the opportunity to continue our college education without the worry of not being able to pay off our hospital bill. We are passionate about becoming the best nurses that we can be, and you can have helped us in our journey to accomplish that goal. Nursing school is challenging enough, let alone getting an extra job to pay bills.

Your kindness will not be taken for granted or forgotten. Once we have achieved our goal of becoming professional nurses, we hope to be able to give the same aid to people in need just as you have done for us. The kindness you have shown us will be passed down. After all, someone else is bound to have a curve ball thrown at them as well. Thank you again for your generosity. We greatly appreciate it.
