Do You Know Someone Who Needs a New Car?

Hi Ellen, it's me again, this is my fourth update regarding Sharon Hopkins (my Niece) a The Teacher from UPREP High School in Detroit, Michigan. These are the first African America students to participate in debuts in the city's history. They have been brightening up the country with their debating skills. Placing, moving forward then winning each Tournament of which they have advanced. As I told you in my first, second and third letters; they advanced to the finals in California and had several Fundraisers to insure their appearance. Well, ELLEN...They did it! They WON the Final Tournament. We couldn't be more proud of them all. I am writing you on her behalf because lips would fall off before she asked anyone for help for herself. So Ellen, I am humbly asking for her. She needs a new SUV to replace the one she now drives. If she knew I was contacting you for help for her instead of asking for help for her "children" as she calls them, she would not be impressed. They always and in all ways come first. I’m sure she is not the only teacher who goes the extra mile for their students but she’s the only one I am requesting help for at this time. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Ellen reward this inspirational and inspiring young lady for her selfless work with a new SUV. Thank you in advance. Loretta Jackson.

Hi Ellen, this is the second correspondence regarding my Niece Sharon Hopkins who is a teacher at the University Prep High School in Detroit, MI. She was contacted today by, in her words; "Just got off the phone with a CBS News producer in New York who will be coming to the "D" to do a story on UPREP Debate! Blessings raining down."

This is the reason for this letter today. These kids are on fire around the debate circles in the school system. I included the Sharon's Facebook address so you can view her students exceptional talents.

They have broken records as the first African American Students from the Detroit area to not only place at competitions but to also win top honors at several Tournaments.

She tirelessly takes the students from tournament to Tournament never complaining about the cost or time it takes to support them. Recently her Transmission went out on her car but she didn't complain. She was renting cars to transport them because she didn't want them to be stranded. To Continue the story; they were on the News in January in their effort to raise the last $2000.00 for the team to make it for the Finals in California.
She is a great teacher and deserves some appreciation for the support she provides for our leaders of tomorrow. In my first letter, I requested your assistance in providing a new SUV to replace the one she now owns. She would NEVER ask for herself so I will do it for her. As I said in the first letter, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE surprise her with a brand new SUV. You may contact me at my email address. Again, thank you in advance.

Do You Know an Inspiring Person?

Hi Ellen, I love watching your show and all of the wonderful deeds you do for everyday people. I have a touching story regarding my Niece Sharon Hopkins, who is a teacher in Detroit, Michigan at the University Prep H.S. She takes money from her pocket at the beginning of every school year to purchase ANY & ALL supplies her student may need during the school year. She and her students are breaking records from left and right in the field of debating. She is a new teacher who has never been in a situation where her students would debate in their school let along progress in these Tournaments as they have on every level. There has never been a debate team at the school. They have been featured in News Papers, other Articles and on FOX2 News because they are the first African American Students from Detroit to break debate records of any kind. Please look at her Facebook page Sharon Hopkins, all of their awards and stories are featured. The last time they were featured on FOX 2 News, they were trying to raise the last $2,000.00 so they can go to California to compete in the finals which is also a first for the Detroit School System. I am not asking for any help with the funds which are needed for the trip because Sharon will not stop until they have achieved their goals. I am writing you on her behalf because lips would fall off before she asked anyone for help for herself. So Ellen, I am humbly asking for her. She needs a new SUV to replace the one she now drives. If she knew I was contacting you for help for her instead of asking for help for her "children" as she calls them, she would not be impressed. They always and in all ways come first. I’m sure she is not the only teacher who goes the extra mile for their students but she’s the only one I am requesting help for at this time. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Ellen reward this inspirational and inspiring young lady for her selfless work with a new SUV. Thank you in advance. Loretta Jackson.
