this is cool, I'd love to sponsor a school if I were wealthy.

Anyone remember that Office episode Scott's tots?  Michael promised a classroom of underprivileged elementary students that if they made it through high school he would fund their college tuition.  He genuinely thought he would become rich in the 10years it would take.  He didn't.  All he had to offer were laptop batteries, just the spare batteries. Episode was sad but hilarious.

Good for her.

She has been fortunate and is paying it forward. Does not matter what race.

There are unfortunates within every race.   

You never know what might become of someone to whom you extend a helping hand.

Many black celebs and wealthy people do similar things in our communities they just don't advertise it. Many of them give through private foundations and donor funds and other ways that don't have their names attached.

But anyway, good on Sandra and anyone else who does this sort of thing. Remember you can make a difference in lots of small ways so do it. I know people who get together with friends and buy all the books for a few nursing students they know and things like that.
