My best friend is getting married in December in Jaipur, India. She wants me to be her bridesmaid and I’d love to be in her wedding more than anything. I am currently a graduate student enrolled in Purdue University. As you all know, buying a ticket to India during the peak travel season could run me as high as $2000. Being an international student, I am really not able to afford it. I have some money saved up but not enough to cover the entire price of the ticket. I am hoping to raise this money by October so that I can buy the tickets in time and go to my best friend’s wedding. I will really appreciate any small contribution that you can make to my fund. My friend and I will be really thankful!
