Upromise Dream Wall Sweepstakes

My husband and I are not only newly married, but are new PARENTS as well.  Naturally our priorities have changed and planning for our child's future is at the forefront.  We have a savings plan in place and will meet with a financial advisor about setting up a 529 plan for our son.  For those of you who are not familiar (as we were not until our child was born): A 529 Plan is an education savings plan operated by a state or educational institution designed to help to save funds for college costs. We have also signed up as Upromise members.  But even with these plans in place, by the time our child reaches college age, it still may not be enough. Costs are constantly rising.   We find it wise to save in every way that we can.  For the sake of our son's future.
Upromise is celebrating its 10th Anniversary and will be giving away a total of $20,000 to users who share a story that tells of how a parent has supported a child's dream.   A contest is in place to help offset the costs for college.  I am very excited about spreading the buzz to other families.  Please visit: for more about the contest.

I hope that you all accept the challenge for the sake of your child's future. Upromise invites you to DREAM for a brighter future for your child and to SHARE your story with the world.  Simply tell your story of what your dreams are for you child to be entered for a chance in a weekly $1,000 drawing.  Friends and family can help you and your family to make these dreams come true!  All it takes is to vote by selecting "Like".  The entry with the most votes by September 29th wins a GRAND PRIZE of $10,000!

In case you haven't heard about the program:  Upromise by Sallie Mae is a rewards program that can help you pay for college. You can earn with your everyday spending.  When you shop online, eat out, buy groceries or gas you can get a percentage back for all eligible purchases.

I have submitted our dream and hope that you visit the link to the Upromise Dream Wall to see our post: His Dream is Our Dream . We would consider it a "dream come true" for our son to have every opportunity to realize his own dreams.   I am hoping (pleading) that you will read our story and click "Like" - It really would mean a lot to us.  I thank you in advance.

It may be tough to get the most votes by the deadline for the grand prize as the most popular post is (at the time of this writing) already at over 6,000 likes!  But a chance at the $1,000 weekly drawing is a great reason to try.  Winning the cash prizes would be wonderful but it is really is nice just to share your hopes for your child with other like minded families.  Reading the stories is very touching.  Please share yours!

I strongly encourage you to submit your dreams for a chance to win.  I would love for you to share your story with a comment here on my blog post as well.  In the end we all have the same dream for our children:  For their health, happiness, and success.  Please pass this along to your friends and family as I'm sure that we all have special children in our lives that we would like to help to succeed!
