I’ve written about the benefits of Upromise before – but in case you aren’t familiar – UPromise is a free way to earn some extra dollars for your kids’ college accounts. You just link your credit cards and grocery loyalty cards to your account and when you buy participating grocery items or eat at participating restaurants, UPromise deposits a certain percentage of your purchase into your child’s account. The largest money maker for me though has been when I Iog into UPromise before using a site like Expedia to buy plane tickets. At up to 2% credited to your account, it can add up quickly!
But today, UPromise has given me another reason to love them.
Upromise $20,000 Giveaway
I submitted my dream and have my fingers crossed (and maybe a few toes) that I’ll be selected. I would love your votes! But, to be honest, even without the money I feel incredibly fortunate that my children have as many advantages as they do. They are healthy, smart, and were fortunate enough to be born in America to two parents that love them deeply.
The dream I wrote about is for children that haven’t been as fortunate as mine. I dream of providing HIV medicine to the parents so fewer children will join the 16 million HIV orphans in Africa. I dream of funding a cure for childhood cancer that claims the lives of children before they even have a chance to live. I dream of a cure for autism and spina bifida and all the other diseases and disorders that affect children and their families worldwide. I dream of hope for the daughters that are born in countries that value them less than their cattle. The places where being beaten and raped is the norm. I dream of every child being healthy, intelligent, safe and loved.
