Government subsidiaries can't help me, can you? of course you can!

who are you? why do you want my money?

  • My name is Ben Seaton, A Bachelor graduate from New Zealand. 

  • I moved to Perth to fulfil my dream of working in the dance industry and study at the Western Australian Academy of Performing arts (WAAPA)

  • I've been accepted into the honours program at WAAPA, which is tied into LINK Dance Company, with a strong endorsement from the Artistic Director.

  • I don't have the money to accept my place yet :(

  • Because i'm from New Zealand, I am not eligible for government assistance or scholarships to help pay for the course.

  • I was able to pay for my Bachelor degree by working every opportunity I got, and successfully paid the $19,000 (12,500 pounds) over the three years, but now the fees for the Honours course is a lot higher.

  • I require an estimated $10,000 to fully pay off my course, and become a successful performer in the industry.

Wow, thats a legitimate reason, but what are you going to do with my money?

  • All of your generous donations go directly to paying off course debts! This includes:

  • $7,000 in tuition fees.

  • $3,000 to help pay for the mandatory European tour with the company. (The tour costs extra, but I will be working to finance this also).

Ok, i'm sold, but what do I get out of it?

  • Not only will you be helping out a worthy and charismatic dancer to fulfil his primary goal in life, you'll get a reward!

  • See a full list of rewards on the side!

  • BUT donate over $25 and ill personally send you a thank you message!

In all seriousness, any donation is greatly appreciated as I can't fully fund this myself like I have been. I will be truly grateful. Thank you in advance.
