Sounds good just another scam for Mathew to make some money without a real job. I thought you were going on a horseback ride? Typical of you to raise money and not follow through. Total scam artist.

Sorry I'm little skeptical here since I've seen scumbags scamming people asking for donation at the time of catastrophe. Besides how are you going to get the visa? I am hearing reports of visa applications not being approved.
