Help Support Tamar in China

Hi Everyone. As a lot of you know yesterday I landed in Beijing, China to start my study abroad trip for this semester. I had received financial aid and a scholarship to be able to afford to go which provided enough for some emergency money as well. Unfortunately, because of unforeseen expenses regarding this trip, all of the cushion money I had is now gone. My grandmother was going to send more help so that I would not have to worry about getting through this trip but something very unfortunate has just happened. My father has just passed away and I can't afford to go home, come back, and stay on this trip., a trip I have essentially been hoping would happen for two years. With this sudden loss happening right when our family was moving my grandmother is struggling to be able to help me as well. I am putting this GoFundMe up as a last resort. I don't know what else I can do.  If you are able to give that would be incredible. I am in China and US money carries a lot of weight here so absolutely anything helps. Example: $3 would pay for a full lunch here. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
