TM-Sidhi Course for 4 MUM Students

Hi Everyone!

Thank you in advance for supporting this campaign to help amazing 4 MUM students get their TM-Sidhis!  

About the fundraiser:

The campaign's objective is to help Dominique Ragland, Malik Evans, Chevonne Height, and Marcello Lopez pay for their TM-Sidhi course.  

Breakdown of the Costs:
The course cost for each student is $1,780 ($1,250 for tuition and $530 for housing costs).
$1,780 x 4 = $7,120 + $380 to cover GoFundMe fees

The David Lynch Foundation is providing scholarships of $750 per student who commits to being in the dome for 1 year.  

$750 x 4 = $3,000 in scholarships

Costs plus GoFundMe fees minus scholarship:
$7,500 - $3,000 = $4,500 left to raise

To avoid fees (GoFundme charges about 8%) you can also donate via Venmo or PayPal (mariamdaudi @ or send a check to Mariam Daudi, PO Box 2192, Fairfield, IA 52556 and I will manually apply the funds to GoFundMe.

About the students:
