To all of our friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays at UBB because it gives us a chance to connect with all of you who continue to support our work in providing higher educational opportunities for our students at WSR and MSU.
We are so thankful for our students who are committed in earning an education for themselves, which translates to them having better futures. Brian Bassett, one of our students who earned his AA degree last year, shared with us the importance of education and his future made possible through our programs:
“My overall experience with UBB has been life-changing — not only from an educational standpoint, but the sense of accomplishment that builds after each successful class ending is quite noteworthy. To those who are just beginning their journey towards a higher education, know that it will be a lot of hard work, but also know that nothing beats the sense of betterment and pride you feel upon achieving a degree through UBB.”
Mark your calendars for #GivingTuesday, a global giving day! It is on Tuesday, November 27!
You can donate through our website, by mailing us a check to our UBB office, or by creating a Facebook fundraiser on your Facebook account, in support of UBB!
Remember, every dollar you donate will be matched by Facebook and PayPal. For 1 student to take 1 class is $547. Every little bit helps, so donate whatever and however you can help our students, and double your impact.

Lastly, we are so thankful for all of YOU. Your continued generosity, dedication, and compassion for our students mean so much, and we cannot thank you all enough. Again, we wish you all a happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
