Beth's Graduate School Post-Graduation Fund
Organized by: Beth Smaligo
The primary goal of this fundraiser is to raise funds for a Focus Bluetooth Braille Display. This specialized device has 80 characters per line of text and will enable me to use my iPhone with braille output along with VoiceOver (Apple's built-in screen reader), not just audio narration, thus making my iPhone more accessible. The total cost is about $10,000, and I want to raise the first $1,000 with CrowdRise. This is an ongoing goal with no deadline. I will graduate from seminary in May, and as such will be compelled to pay back my student loans rather quickly. Beginning salary for a newly graduated diaconal minister is low, so I will be saving up for a while. Secondarily, this fundraiser is seed money for any other immediate post-graduation expenses. Please give as you can, minimally $10; all donations are appreciated no matter the amount. God's blessings and peace be upon you.
