A futon couch for Orlando who just moved into his first college aparment

Posted Dec 16, 2017
Orlando has moved into his first college apartment. However, he has no furniture. A futon would be ideal because it would allow him have a place to relax during the day and sleep at night, especially since his apartment has limited room. Olrando does not qualify for the state support that is given to most of our foster youth. This futon would mean the world to him.

Orlando is 20 years old and lives in Riverside , CA

Orlando is a second year university student. It is too early to say what he wants to do after graduation, but with a brother attending UCLA he and his siblings have already overcome a tremendous amount of challenges to be where they are now. While its too early to tell what he wants to do after graduation, he is really studious and dedicated to his academics. He is a bit shy, but when you get to know him, he really opens up. Orlando does not benefit from the other state aid other foster youth are privy to, he works and puts himself through college.

Marylynne sent an update on the wish for Orlando.

Hi, Orlando. My husband and I are so happy to grant you this wish. We think it's great that you're in college and getting your first apartment. You'll need lots of sleep to keep your grades up. A lot of kids graduate high school and don't go to college. But, your choice to go to college shows that you're determined and intelligent. And that drive will lead you to a job that you deserve because you're willing to put in the time to make it happen. It's so important for your future. Merry Christmas, Mary and Tony
