  • I don't know but you should really ask the parents if it is ok for you to be doing this. They may not be comfortable with the idea.

  • Write to Ellen. I'm not kidding. I watched her show the other day. She gave a family over $50 grand. It made me cry, she gave them money to pay off credit card bills. Catch up with their mortgage. And gave them a new vehicle. Which I'm sure was donated, but still. It's worth a shot.
