Stephanie's Final Year of College

Friends, Family and Awesome people of the internet, I need your help! My little sister, Stephanie Pflugrad, has hit a fiscal wall in her last year of college at Union College located in Lincoln, NE.

Her passion is simply to help people. More specifically, it is to aid the world by giving people the opportunity to find a new normal after all hope seems lost in disaster. Stephanie has chosen a degree that lets her do just that. Her major is International Rescue and Relief (B.S.) with an emphasis in Global Community Development and a minor in Business Administration.

This passion began during a year in high school when she had a taste of mission work. However, her love of helping others hit full gear when Hurricane Harvey flooded Texas. Stephanie went down with a team to Port Arthur and Beaumont where she was able to apply a set of skills she had learned in college. She helped people salvage what they could from their homes and prepare to rebuild. Although the work was exhausting, Stephanie fell in love with her major because she was able to bring help and comfort to those suffering. Stephanie hopes to finish out her senior year and graduate so she is able to help more people find that hope after the storm.

Will you help her achieve her goal to aid others when disaster strikes?

When is this needed?
The money for school is needed by January 1st, 2019

How will the money be used?
Goal 1. (~$29,421) Pay for College Expenses!!!
Goal 2. (~$7,000) If anything is left over, buy a quality used vehicle.
Goal 3. (~$3,000) Wow, can't believe this much came in! Extra courses/certifications for her toolbox of skills.

Why GoFundMe?
Stephanie has worked hard for this degree and simply has exhausted all other options. she works year round to pay as much of her tuition as possible.  Now others that think she is amazing want to see her finish the program and be successful.
