I have been using Upromise for years. I signed up not even two full days after the birth of our oldest daughter (who just started Kindergarten!! Where *do* the years go?!). It's great to know that when I purchase something we need, by clipping eCoupons, a little bit of what was spent can be set aside for my daughters and their education. If you're not signed up, I highly recommend that you do so! Upromise members have received more than $600 million in college savings through their rewards program.
Right now, Upromise is celebrating their 10th Anniversary! ::throws confetti:: Woohoo! That is so exciting! To celebrate, Upromise is giving away $20,000 to participants who share a story telling how a parent has supported a child's dream. If you'd like a chance to win, you can submit a story at www.upromisetodream.com, and you can also vote on your favorite stories by "liking" them. Upromise plans to give away $1,000 to ten winners, as well as a grand prize of $10,00 for one lucky participant! (dream wall official rules)
So, go, join the movement! Spread the word! Share your experiences and give a little spark to help fuel the flame of future dreams. I shared mine! My dream for my daughters is that they never give up on what makes them shine. I want them to be happy, no matter if that means they find love and stay at home to raise children, following in the footsteps of their mother and grandmother, or have a lifelong career. No matter what, I want them to be happy and to know that I support them in their choices. I want them to know that they can learn from everything.
Feel free to leave a comment and share your dream here, I'd love to hear it!
