This month, Zee our star scholar and VP of her college honors society received disappointing news. She did not receive the Jack Kent Cooke scholarship to a 4-year university that she was semi-finalist for. This young lady who has the most precious smile ever (which belies the surgery she had to take out bullet shells in her head) said the news "ruined" her day. It's the first time she has expressed sadness since coming to America over a year ago. As we anticipate three more Chibok girls and survivors of terror going to college this year in addition to three currently in college, we need your help.

We are having a "Vacation for an Education" auction. Please bid for a luxurious getaway to Mexico and help send the escaped girls to school. 32 Auctions - Start a Bid!

If you don't want to bid for a Mexico getaway, you can donate directly through a Facebook fundraiser. Facebook fundraiser
