Kendra S' Fundraiser:

Research Donation and Tuition Fundraiser

I am doing a fundraising for the academia that is being ignored by most.
Most people look at the degree of PhD as just a way to become a professor. In truth, a PhD graduate is involved in people's lifes in many way.

Life of a PhD student gas two folds;

* Research
* Survive

For all the work you do, as a PhD student, you are expected to survive with 1000 dollars a month at most. If you consider that 400 dollars go to rent, situation is dire.

Yet, these are the people that engineers your Ipads, Laptops, Xbox, PS3, cellphones, and etc. You drive the cars that they build. You read this rant using the software they wrote. It is heartbreaking to think that a rap singer makes millions singing about what they do to you know who when doors closed.

My mission at this fundraising is to raise some money for my tuition. Also, I will donate 30 percent of the total fundraise to a variety of research grand foundations.

Who am I?
I am a PhD student researching on electronics and my bursary will run out soon. When it does, I won't even receive that 1000 dollars, plus I am going to pay 5000+ tuition every term to be able to research for future of mankind(?).

I believe in the power of masses and even a dollar can make a difference.

Thank you in advance for your contribution. :)
