Send Tashi (Sarah) To Israel To Study!

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
