Artist residency travel and materials $$

Hi, I'm Kim, an eco-artist based in Charleston, SC; are you passionate about the environment and art? I use my art practice as a means to inspire change. As a full-custody single parent who works full-time as a public school art teacher, I have very little time and space to devote solely to my art practice. However, I landed an expansive opportunity to have 2 solid weeks of art studio time at Mother's Milk Residency in Wichita, KS this summer. I have big plans to create two large works of art, one land-based(not coming home with me be very important to my artistic development) and one sculptural-based crochet piece(definitely coming home with me).
I'm asking for assistance with travel fees(up to $600), art transportation fees(approximately $65 to ship the completed work back home), as well as food and travel while I'm there($300), accommodations (approx. $400) and help funding for a drone to photograph the land-based work(it's large! At least 35 feet long so only a drone can do this, which is around $540).
I'm extremely grateful for any and all help!! I can wait to develop, document and share this work with you! If you don't already, please follow me on Instagram @iamkimthomas where I'll post the progress of the residency.
