Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra from Teen Mom have voiced their determination to gain a college education after they decided to give their daughter Carly up for adoption. To help Catelynn and Tyler reach their goals, the website Jezebel is trying to raise money for the Teen Mom couple.
“For the next two weeks, we will be accepting donations via PayPal; these contributions will go to a private account and then be given to Catelynn and Tyler,” Jezebel writes. “Obviously we can’t guarantee that they’ll use the cash to pay for college, but they’ve demonstrated their strong decision-making skills in the past, and we trust that they’ll put the money to good use.”
“The young couple should be commended for having the wisdom to know that they were unable to give their daughter the kind of life that they wanted for her, and the sensitivity to make the kind of sacrifices in order to make sure that she would,” Jezebel explains. “However, they’ve been belittled and admonished for their gut-wrenching decision by Tyler’s dad (who has been in and out of jail and rehab throughout his life), and Catelynn’s mother (who has substance abuse issues of her own).”
