Urgent! Need To Raise Money For College

Dear Community,
My name is Benjamin Groeper, 21, and I come to you as a Red Cross Youth Samaritan and B.S.A Medal of Honor recipient, student, and friend. I currently attend Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, Iowa (originally from Chicago, IL) and am currently pursuing my bachelor degree, majoring in Psychology with a Studio Art minor. To give all of you a brief summary of my long-term motives, I one day plan to obtain my doctorate in Psychology and become a clinical psychologist in hopes of  improving the quality of other people's lives. In order to get to that point however, it seems that it has only become harder and harder for students of my status to pay for college so I come to you for help. Unfortunately, my mother passed away recently and my father is unable to help after depleting the last of his finances, helping my three older siblings get through college. I am currently employed but due to other expenses that I am faced with (books, phone, etc.) a job doesn't seem help me as much as I thought it would. So again, I am in dire need of all of the help I can get. I would be in your debt and will keep all of you who are able to help in my heart. Please, what ever amount you are capable of donating would be appreciated greatly. In advance, I want to thank every one who is able to help.
