Hello friends and strangers!

My name is Josh and I'm a senior Psychology major at Kenyon College. I returned this semester to begin my senior year after taking an extended hiatus. It was great being away, but I'm glad to be back and people have been really warm and welcoming upon my return.

I didn't think I'd ever sign up for one of these sites, but now, I find myself in a bind, unable to cover the remaining balance on my college tuition for the spring 2013 semester. After maxing out my Kenyon Aid and Federal loans, I still have a remaining balance of $3,380 with the college. I have until 4/1, to get the money together for the college.

My mom is retired and already has two other loans from my sisters that she cosigned on, totaling $26,000. Being a retired, single parent, of a certain age, I completely understand why she doesn't feel comfortable risking her financial situation by incurring more debt and potentially jeopardizing her good credit score. 

I'm at a complete impasse here. My mom can't afford to pay given her delicate financial situation, I don't have enough money of my own, nor would I make enough from my job before the semester ends. The school needs the money by 3/15 otherwise I'll have to leave school... again! This is my final year of college, I have one more semester after this, and I just want to get my diploma so I can go out into the world and do the great things I have planned.

The site charges a small percentage fee (like most do), but I thought I'd give it a shot, because time is running out and I need your help. Please donate whatever you can and spread the word to those you know. Thanks! -Josh :)

P.S.- Last fall, I donated to a guy in Australia who needed help paying for his pet's surgery, as a result of a chronic illness. Luckily, he was successful in raising the funds & I personally found the experience to be rewarding for me as well. :)
