\"The only thing more expensive than education is ignorance. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.\" -Benjamin Franklin It takes a village to raise a child. - African Proverb Every Penny counts.

"Improving public education is a patriotic act. There’s no better way to perpetuate a strong, safe, prosperous America than by providing her children with the education needed to keep her that way. "

- Lisa Pampuch
newspaper columnist

I am a proud person and very rarely ask for help, but when it comes to my children I would do anything.

Lets face it, in this country our current public education system is flawed, and a higher education is almost mandatory in order to compete in the job market. Lets add on to that the extremely high costs for a family to put one child, let alone two children through college.

God has blessed our family, we have a roof over our heads, food in our mouths, and two healthy children.

We arent any more worthy than any other family to receive help, but we will gladly accept any help that anyone is generous enough to give in order to help our children get the future education they deserve.

We are a middle class family and we put as much as we can aside for our childrens future education, but even starting now with our children only 1 and 2 1/2 years old we know that we will be unable to save even close to enough to put them through college by ourselves, especially with the rising costs of education.

Both of our children are signed up with the Washington GET program (www.get.wa.gov) and at the current cost of credits it will cost a total of $101.000 for both our kids to complete 4 years of college.  Any contributions will be split in half and placed equally into both accounts.

Thank you for your consideration in the future education of our family and a small part of the future generation of America.

Anyone who wishes to contribute to our children's future and wishes to leave their contact information will receive yearly updates and pictures of the children.
