This particular fundraiser was created to help support Connor Ricketts' plan in pursuing his future career in Mechanical Engineering. I Connor Ricketts writing this am located in Evansville, Indiana, attending the University of Southern Indiana. I am raising this money because I have grown up with a single mother who has supported my sister and me through our lives with no child support from our father. My mother has recently been trying to pay off my sister Indiana University tuition as she is one more semester away from graduating. Also recently my sister has had a baby, so I am now an uncle, and my mother has been doing her best to support my sister with her medical and baby expenses. Now back to me, I am currently in my first semester at USI, and still have a debt to pay for my first semester. I do not need the funds at any specific time as in that I will be in college for the next four years. My mother keeps telling me she will do her best to help pay for the tuition and books, but I would like to reach my goal to help my mother in paying the books and maybe if I reach my goal, I can raise my goal even higher to help for the actual tuition. My mother has done everything for me, and I want to help her back. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and any amount of donation is appreciated. Thank you!
