Help the Russian Graduate College

Hey friends! This request is extremely unexpected and personal so bear with me. 

I'm set to graduate from Azusa Pacific University on May 1st 2015 with my Bachelor of Science in International Business. APU is a great school with rigorous programs that have taught and challenged me throughout the 4 years. Naturally, the price tag is a hefty one and my family and I have relied on God's provision to make the payments. We were able to afford APU up until now.

With 61 days left till graduation, it has become impossible for my family and I to pay the last chunk and clear me for graduation. The situation in Russia has been becoming more and more tense for a while which has now affected my family. I'm not going to go into a geo-political analysis of the situation or ramble about the financial market but here's the gist of how I got affected:

 Within the last few months, the Ruble (the Russian currency) has dropped almost half in value, the US dollar became twice as expensive and the final amount for APU is above and beyond what we can afford. 
Prayerfully, I have decided to ask Facebook and all you guys for help. 

The total left till I am able to graduate is $1,812.00. I can probably scrape the $12 but would deeply appreciate all the help possible for the $1,800 left.
If 150 people were to donate $12 (or the equivalent of a Chipotle burrito with avacado and chips :) ) then we would have the amount in no time!

So - if you have the chance - help me graduate! :)

If you have any questions, comments, sassy remarks, prayers or words of encouragement for this grad-to-be, don't hesitate to contact me!

Thanks guys!
