Send Tashi (Sarah) To Israel To Study!

$3,500 of $3,500 goal

Raised by 64 people in 46 months
Tashi Pratt-King  TEMPE, AZ
I have applied and been accepted into the summer 2013 Machon Alte programme in Safed, Israel. I intend to go to study, to learn languages, to discover more about my heritage. This will be my first time back in a college environment since before my husband passed away. Due to the extreme nature of his medical bills from 3 years of brain cancer treatments, and final expenses I have no savings or income to afford paying for the programme myself. I have been unable to work in a paying job since he passed in September 2012, and still have medical bills and obligations to repay. I am asking for anything you are able to donate to this cause, as this will be a large step forward in continuing my own personal life after being widowed at age 25.
My intention is to study and learn as much as possible this summer, and to refocus on who I am now, as a widow. My goal is to have various studies in Israel in order to help me decide what to finish my college degree in, as I was unable to graduate while I was caring full-time for my husband during his 3 years of cancer.
I am most thankful for any amount that you feel you can donate.
The funds will be used to:
*The school's down-payment
*The airfare
*Uniforms/Proper attire
*Medical Insurance - required
*Expenses and continuing medical bills (Stateside, obligatory)
*Bus fare
*Personal sundries (ie: bath/shower hygiene supplies)
*School supplies (Notebooks, pens/pencils, any required reading)

As I am unable to qualify for a loan due to previous large medical bills stemming from husband's brain cancer and cancer expenses, I am asking my friends, family, and any donors to please help me to get back into studies and to help me move towards being able to contribute back to society.

Thank you,
Tashi (Sarah) Pratt-King

Only 2 days 'til I leave! I only have a little left to raise, so if you can help donate, please do. The funds will still be accessible to me after I leave (yay, Bus fare in Israel!) so for those who cannot donate until the end of the week or start of next month, a preemptive thank you.
For the friends and family wishing to stay in touch, you can always Private Message me your mailing address for some postcards from me, and/or follow my pictoral adventures on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/people/97553466@N04/

More than halfway on raising the funds! I have paid for my ticket and leave in one week; on 26th June! I do need to finish raising the fund to pay back the credit card my mother used to purchase the airfare. Anything that you can donate, even $1 will help. Sharing my story also helps to support me, and I am so thankful to all of you.
As a young and still recent Widow, I lack a lot of support programs in place for being widowed at 25 with huge medical bills and no insurance. My friends, family, and you wonderful anonymous donors make all the difference.
I hope you will be happy to see my smiling face in Safed, and hearing about my classes when I return in August.
Thank you all again, so very much.

Thank you to everyone for sharing my story and for donating whatever you can. I know I cannot do this without your support, love, and faith in me. I am almost halfway to my goal, and I have heard that I have received 2 scholarships to help with tuition costs! I still need to raise the funds to cover the rest of the costs, but I am quite hopeful that my feet will be in Israel and my head in a book by the end of June.
I am looking forward to sending those who would like them postcards. Thank you all again, so very much.
