An online campaign dedicated to raising money to allow a local woman to pay her college tuition has raised $927.

Fresh Meadows' Angy Rivera created a GoFundMe page titled "Education Bracelets." The total fundraising goal for the campaign is $4,000. So far, 50 people have donated to the initiative.

The page reads:

I sell bracelets to pay my college education. As an undocumented person living in the United States, I do not qualify for federal financial aid or state financial aid. It is difficult for me to ask for money but, at this time, paying for my education is becoming more difficult each semester. Please support this cause by donating or sharing this with your friends. If you wish to donate and not receive a bracelet, please let me know. For any questions, please email me AngyPRivera@gmail.com. Thank you so much!

Vendo pulseras para pagar mi educación universitaria. Siendo indocumentada en los Estados Unidos, no califico para ayuda financiera federal o ayuda financiera estatal. Es difícil para mí pedir dinero, pero en este momento, pagar por mi educación es cada vez más difícil. Por favor, apoye esta causa donando o compartiendo con sus amistades. Si desea donar algo y no recibir una pulsera porfavor dejemelo saber. Cualquier pregunta, por favor envíeme un correo electrónico a Angy@nysylc.org. Muchisimas Gracias.
