Jeneva Goes to Africa

I'm Jeneva Burton - a recent graduate of St Martin's Univesity. My dream is to go to Africa with the university's study abroad program.
I thought I could get enough funds together in time to go on the trip. But I'm short. Really short.
You see, my dad died unexpectedly in November. I thought he'd be the one to help me with this trip. When he died, I raised $10,000 for his funeral in two weeks by going to my family and friends. They dug deep. Now I need to find another way to get the funds I need for this trip.
I need $2500 - that's the balance I owe the university for the trip. And I need it before APRIL 20TH. If I don't get enough, then I forfeit what I have paid ($1500) AND I don't get to go on the trip.
Please help make this opportunity to see Africa a reality.
Thank you so very much in advance for your kindness and generosity.
