An interesting thing happened lately.
I found out my wife was pregnant.
That’s when several new thoughts started rushing through my head like…
- Will it be a boy or a girl?
- Will I be able to provide for him or her?
- I wish I had saved more for this time!
- Will they act like me (yikes!) or more like my wife (hopefully!)?
- If it’s a girl, how much will a wedding cost by the time she gets married?
- How much will college cost and how will we pay for it?
- Am I working hard enough to provide for my family?
It stunned me that so many questions started bouncing around in my head all at once. If felt like the top of my head might pop off!
I just couldn’t stop thinking about how this would change our lives.
It was excitement, a little fear of the unknown, and a lot of pre-planning for when the baby arrives!
Move forward 9 months…
As I write this blog post, my wife is due with a baby girl in just 2 days. By the time you read this, she will probably be with us already.
This is an amazing and exciting time in our lives and it also brings with it several new challenges and aspects to our life. (as those of you with children know)
One of the things Jenn and I have talked about is saving for college. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today without the education I received. I want to give that same advantage to my children.
But college cost’s so much these days!
The good news is, we live in Marion. That’s right! And what that means is that there is a ton of money out there that you and I can get our hands on for
college! (Did you know this?)
When you live in Marion, you don’t have to be rich to send your children to college.
I have discovered in the last couple years that there is a lot of money available due to a large sum of money left by George Alber. Mr Alber left over $30 Million to different organizations in Marion…one of which is The Ohio State University of Marion.
During the 2010-2011 academic year, they gave out $536,082 to 345 students!
That’s over $1,500 per student!
And now, thanks to the George Alber Fund, and other private donors, children are able to earn money as they go through elementary, middle, and high school that they can use at OSU Marion to pay for their classes.
Children can earn over $3,000 towards their college education!
This is done through the GoBuck$ program at OSU Marion.
There is a problem that needs solved though…
The George Alber fund takes care of the city schools, but we need to raise money so that all of the county schools can have this available in all grades, and not just a few select grades.
The way that we do this is by raising money through private donors.
Art and Anne Loewe of Marion have pledged over $300,000 to the program, my wife and I give to it and we raise money for the program by giving away services a couple times each year but…
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The children of Marion need your help.
You can make a difference with a small donation.
Your children only get this opportunity once and we need to help make it happen for them.
I wanted to find a way to help more than I have in the past and this is it – I can give away free services and gifts to YOU for a small donation to give to this essential program.
So I decided to create a new event. We are holding it at our office on October 7th, from 7:30am to 6:00 pm. You are all welcome to come join us for this event, and get your free adjustments, new patient exams, and our new t-shirts!
