Dear Friends, our family is in need of your help! Due to several unexpected issues with funding, we are no longer able to cover the cost of our upcoming move to Alberta. Without you, Amber will not be able to return to school this fall. Please help! More ...

Dear Friends and Family,

As you no doubt know, our family has been working hard to change our current situation by furthering schooling and making a large move. Amber was recently admitted into the University of Alberta's Atmospheric Science program, a specialized program that requires excellent academic standing and dedication. Finishing this degree means our family must move from our much loved Vancouver Island to Edmonton, Alberta, where the University is located; a process that costs a lot of money.

Unfortunately, due to a recent loss in expected funding, we can no longer afford to make this move. With heavy hearts we ask for help to make this dream of ours possible. Without additional sources, we simply can not make it happen. 

We are asking for about $5000, the amount we asked our credit union for (and were denied because of our low income.) This is also the amount that was withdrawn from Amber's student loan due to an overpayment several years ago. While she still has enough to cover the cost of tuition, the rest of it, which was meant to cover living expenses, is no longer available.

We are asking for your help to cover the cost of our first month of rent and damage deposit, which amounts to about $3000 (we are looking for a place that is no more than 1500/month with utilities included.) As well as the cost of the move, which is about $2000 ($1000 for the Uhaul truck rental, and another 1000 for gas and ferry costs.) We are using our Save on More points to pay for some ferry costs, as well as food and hotel giftcards. 

Any contribution is very much appreciated.
