Help Adebunmi get to Vermont

I was recently accepted to the Vermont Studio Center Residency in Johnson, Vermont for the February 2018 season. Founded in 1984, it is the largest international writing and visual arts residency in the country, providing housing, a private studio, all meals, and three mentor artists. Vermont Studio Center will allow me to more fully develop my art practice and create new body of work. While I was fortunate enough to receive a scholarship from VSC, it was not sufficient enough to cover the full cost of my tuition and expenses. I need to raise an additional $3000, which breaks down as follows:- $2,150, tuition - $240 round trip from Newark, NJ to Burlington, Vermont including shuttle to and from Johnson, Vermont - $350 to cover bills while I am gone (I will not be compensated from my jobs while I am away from work during that month)- $260 for art supplies while in Vermont and proper winter gear for a “possible 30 degree winter.”Thank you in advance for your support and generous donation.
