Our daughter, Marissa, is a senior in high school this year, and we want to do something extra special for her as a graduation gift! The ONLY thing she has asked for (both for birthday AND Christmas) for the last 3 years is a Hope Chest. We want it to be something special that she can pass down to future generations. However, we just don't have the ability to afford one that isn't a cheap, flimsy piece of junk. All the ones we have found that aren't start out at $500 and only go up from there. So, with the help of family and friends, we are going to collect and save money throughout the school year.
Our tentative goal is to raise at least $700 by the beginning of April or May 2014 (We'll need time before graduation in June to find and/or order the right chest and wait for it to be built and/or shipped).
If you donate toward this gift we will make sure your name is included in who it is from, so this is a great way to maximize the money you may have been planning to spend on a small gift anyways, and takes out the guessing out of shopping. Any size donation is appreciated and will help us get that much closer to reaching our goal! Please help us make her wish come true!
