Applying for college is a road fraught with challenges. There’s the campus tours, the standardized tests, and the actual applications with the dreaded essay. For some hard working students they arrive at that part of the journey only to find the road impassable due to obstacles in their lives which only make the process more difficult. Taking Action to Overcome Obstacles (or T.A.T.O.O.) is an organization that helps make the road smoother. Natalyn Archibong, a member of Atlanta’s City Council, thought that Gift Card Giver might have cards to help on a recent trip that T.A.T.O.O. organized over Spring Break. Students visited Michigan State University (Go Spartans!) and gift cards were sent to help with the costs of food and preparing for the trip. We enjoyed seeing the photos of the kids that went on the trip and are glad that we could contribute to help them take another step toward college.
