SURPRISE!!! Melanie's Dream Education
Organized by: Megan Swanson
A middle child amongst 11 siblings Melanie Siegrist is one of the most humble, hardworking, appreciative young ladies you'll ever meet. Currently 23, Melanie works 3 jobs in both her home state, and Nashville where she goes to school- just to make enough money to crawl along credit by credit. Though from an extremely close and loving family, with 11 children a private school bill for 4 years just wasn't in the cards. Belmont has been Melanie's dream school since high school, but has always been just a few inches away from her reach. She has been paying for school 100% herself for 2 years now, only being financially capable of taking 5-6 credits at a time. In a society where so many students take education for granted, Melanie has blessed my life so much with her humble presence, I want to do everything I can as her friend to GIVE BACK to someone whose only dream is simply to go to school FULL TIME! In all my time being her friend, I have never once heard her complain about having to work until dawn, take only a few credits, or anything about her situation. Can you help me make a much deserving young lady's dreams come true? Every bit helps, either financially or prayerfully! Crowdrise only takes 1% from all of the proceeds, which means 99% goes directly to Melanie! All donations are tax deductible. Crowdrise will send you a receipt via email. Let's help Melanie graduate on time, instead of 2018! But remember, it's a SURPRISE!!!
