The clock is ticking on Nancy Dailey’s dream.

Dailey, a retired teacher, has until Thursday to raise money to fund a trip to Suriname to finish research for a book she’s writing on Maria Sibylla Merian, a naturalist and author who lived in Suriname from 1699 to 1701.

Dailey is using Kickstarter.com, an online fundraising tool that helps people raise capital for their creative projects.
