A lawyer in Fort Lauderdale wants to send broke college students home for the holidays. Jonathan Pollard says he remembers what it's like to be broke and unable to afford a plane ticket home for the holidays, so he wants to help as many students as possible.
He postedon LinkedIn: "If you're a college student and you want to go home for Thanksgiving, but can't afford the plane ticket home, I'm pitching in. I will book your ticket. You must be in college, have financial need, and be able to prove that you are excelling in academics, sports, or extracurricular activities. If you're in college, can demonstrate excellence and need help getting home, just send me a message. I can't possibly afford to help everyone out there. But…I'll help as many people as I can. Because I don't want anybody staying on campus alone because they can't afford to get home. I know what it's like to be in college, flat broke and too poor to go home. Well it's not happening to you. Not on my watch.”
