Help Ishaya visit family in Nigeria

Now that we have the tickets paid for, the extra money will go towards Knowledge for Nigeria, a program of which Ishaya's family is a part. 

Ishaya David, one of our fellow Simpson students, tragically lost his brother Iliya on October 14th, 2015. A day which happens to be Ishaya's birthday. He will be flying back to Nigeria to grieve and support his family on October 16th. Because he bought his plane ticket on such short notice, it was quite expensive. What we are hoping to do is raise 1,500 dollars to ease the finanical burden on his host family, who generously bought Ishaya's ticket. Our goal is to have the funds raised by Winter break, which begins December 19th. With this in mind, easing the financial burden on Ishaya and his host family is only a step in helping him through this tough situation. We would also ask that you please extend your support to Ishaya in order to ease him through this grevious time.
