Fundraising for My Junior Year Abroad. Need Help My Family is Struggling

askdevil-sadvocate:

My name is Lindsey. I’m an upcoming junior at UMass Amherst, majoring in Japanese Language. I was accepted into the study abroad program at Sophia University in Tokyo, Japan and am planning to go in September. What I need from you is help.

My mother has been struggling to pay for my schooling the last two years.She’s been able to get loans in the past, but this year is tough. In June, she underwent heart surgery for her congestive heart failure. Since May, she’s been going through a tough divorce. My father has no money and doesn’t want to be a co-signer on my loans. I really need help for this year. Even financial support for this year would help my mother get back on her feet. 

My mother is a good, hard-working woman who does her damn best to support two kids despite her battle with breast cancer twice and her problems that arose this year. 

In total, I need $43,000 for this year. By August 11, I need $11,000. By the 29th, I need $7,000. The rest I need by September 18th—the day I fly to Japan.

Introducing the Social Intelligence Test! From what I can tell, it’s sponsored by Harvard and it’s rather interesting. The basis is you look at pictures of people going through different emotions and decide what emotion they’re feeling. The trick is, you can only see their eyes.

How well can you read people? I never thought I was good at it, but I scored rather high on this test. It was a very interesting experience! I highly recommend taking this!

July.17.2014 - The calf of Sif, a Harbor Porpoise at Fjord & Baelt, has passed away at 2 days old.

According to the translation of the News article, the calf had died the morning of July 17th after it would not nurse it’s mother, Sif.
“Fjord & Belt was ecstatic when the porpoise, Sif, for the second time gave birth to a new baby calf. 
  The joy did not last long, however, as the calf, which was too little, did not nurse from his mother. 
  The staff nursed by Sif and gave it to the calf in the hope that it would stimulate the digestive system and hungry. 
  It unfortunately not.”
