YOU DID IT!! We've hit our goal!

December 06, 2018

Dear Donors,

 

YOU DID IT! You helped us reach our $10,000 goal to fulfill 300 Little Bruin Wishes!

 

More than 140 donors contributed to make the holiday season less stressful and more joyful for Students with Dependents at UCLA. We doubled our goal this year in hopes of serving more families than ever and you rose to the challenge!

 

Thanks to your gift, we will be able to fulfill the wish lists of every member of all registered families this year. The art supplies, dolls, basketballs, and backpacks that your donations will buy are not just items on wish lists; they are a testament to the UCLA community's support of parenting students and their families.

 

In the coming weeks, our team will be working hard to buy, wrap, and deliver presents to all our families. This is possible thanks to your incredible generosity. Thank you and happy holidays!

 

Sincerely, 

 

The Little Bruin Wishes Team

There are 3 days left to reach our goal!

December 04, 2018

Dear Donors,

 

Thanks to your generosity, we are at nearly 80% of our $10,000 goal to fulfill all Little Bruin Wishes this year!

 

On behalf of our talented students with dependents who work hard to balance their education and provide for their families, thank you for making this holiday season a little easier and a little brighter. Here are just a few of the families whose wishes you are granting with your gift:

  • Family #16: 1 parent, 3 children. The 11-year-old likes being in nature and would like a new backpack. The 6-year-old would like art supplies or a stuffed bear. The 5-year old would like board games or Disney gear. The parent would like a gift card they can put towards a new laptop.
  • Family #22: 1 parent, 1 child. The 9-year-old likes dinosaurs and comic books. The parent would like a gift card to Starbucks.
  • Family #31: 2 parents, 2 children. The 13-year-old likes to color, do arts and crafts, and watch Stranger Things. The 9-year-old likes LeBron James and Legos. The parents would like UCLA gear.

 

With your help, we are confident that we can fulfill the holiday wish lists of all 85 families in the next 3 days! Please tell your friends and family why you chose to support our campaign, share our campaign page on social media, and help us support these hardworking students. We are so thankful for your generosity and support this holiday season.

 

Sincerely,

 

The Little Bruin Wishes Team
