Hi everyone! Rachel here, asking graciously for your help. I am about 9 classes away from having my Bachelor's Degree. My tuition is already covered, I just need a bit of help getting from Alabama to Oregon to make this long awaited dream come true... More ...
Greetings, everyone. I'm Rachel and I am here to ask for help. I currently hold about 192 college credits, but no degree. In July, I'll be moving to Oregon to finally finish my Bachelor's Degree at Oregon State University. I would be so grateful for your help in moving to Oregon to get my diploma. I have studied art and design on a University level since I graduated high school in 2003 (I'm 28 years old and it's high time I had that piece of paper to frame and hang on my wall and probably cry with joy) but since I had to move around the country a bit over the years, I never had the chance to stay in one place and complete my B.A. I studied at the Art Institute of Hollywood for three years, until my father died of cancer in 2007 and I had to move back to the East Coast where I was raised. Now, I find myself in Alabama. I've worked here as a graphic designer the past couple years. Before that, I worked full-time as a sales associate while going to school and gathering up more fine art credits at our local community college. My brother and I (and my dog and cats) will be packing up our cars and heading to Oregon at the end of July. I need help. My tuition at Oregon State is already taken care of. I've been saving for school and on top of that, I got a grant (yay). I have worked hard the past few years and invested a decent amount of money into my small business...leaving me with enough savings to cover first and last months rent at our new home in Oregon. In order to get us and our animals safely to Oregon, I need to raise about $800 bucks (mover expenses, enough gas to drive 3,000 miles, animal crates, cheap hotels, etc). When we get there, our lives will change in the best way possible. Our family has been through quite a few very dark times in the past 6 years and it would be a miracle to get any kind of help making this happen. You can view my resume and portfolio here:

I'm just a girl asking for help from those that are willing and able to give it. It will literally help change my life. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and I hope everything is wonderful in your worlds. Love and light.
