The post I’m writing today is a little different than normal, so hang tight. Probably a little unorthodox… probably going to pull the haters out from wherever they’ve been hiding.

But, I’m hoping that instead of hating, we can band together over something joyous, instead of waiting until a time of tragedy to help one another out. I’m hoping everyone with a baby sister of their own can relate to the lengths you would go to in order to help them reach their dreams.

This young woman is my baby sister, Alexis. She is the picture of all that is good in this world. Kind, genuine, unapologetically herself, and talented enough for the both of us. From the moment she could walk and talk, she was singing and dancing circles around the rest of us. She is blessed with a beautiful voice and the ability to pick up and play just about any instrument she can get her hands on.

We come from a very small town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, with one pizza place, a dairy queen, and one blinking yellow light. Now while I chose to move my family back to that tiny little town, small town living just isn’t for everyone. It’s hard to leave, and people often get stuck, even though they know they would flourish elsewhere. But she has the chance to move on to bigger and better things.

She has recently been accepted to the performing arts academy of her dreams, in California. And while this is incredible, the more she crunches the numbers, the more daunting the finances seem. We come from your average lower middle class family, where we had everything we needed but there isn’t normally much extra.

She needs our help.

She needs the help of any stranger kind enough to donate.

Her light is way too bright for this tiny little town and she deserves this opportunity.

We appreciate any shares, likes, and donations, more than we could ever possibly say♥

Help a sista out.

    Girl! College in California would be expensive! I wish I could help, but I’m on a single mother’s salary with her own student loans to pay, but thankfully not as much as some. If I could give her any advice, it would be to work while she is in college. Part time, but still. It will help if she can cover her living expenses and books while taking out loans (government loans are the best if there ever was such a thing as a “good” loan) only for tuition (and possibly her apartment/student quarters). I wish all the best for her in her endeavors!
