Harrisonburg, Va. (WHSV) - A James Madison University student is using the site Gofundme.com to raise money to help her go to Ghana to teach elementary school students Math and English.

Kirsten Gibbens is a Speech Pathology major, who plans on using the money to pay for her flight, housing and vaccinations to go to Ghana.

So far, she made more than $1,000 towards her goal of $2,600 through the site.

"It helps it get my cause out there for people who don't necessarily know. I've had multiple donations from random people and it's like, they can leave me notes and stuff," said Gibbens.

Gibbens plans to donate any extra money to the school she will be teaching at.
