John intends to follow up with "thank yous" in the form of photo collections/calendars, he'll happily wear your corporate logo t-shirts while in Germany (get them to us before August 2014!! Shirt size Medium!), and I am offering "artwork thank yous" as well for specific donation levels. (For those of you who do not know me, I am John's mom, and I am an artist/photographer, member of the Hamilton County Artists' Association.) I have set up some "Quick Donation" options for you to choose from, but of course, any amount is greatly appreciated!
A little about John: he is a BSU Dean's List student, and a German major with a minor in International Studies. He's a hard worker, maintaining good grades whilst always working part-time while in college. John will also have a job in the University Library while studying in Muenster. The University of Muenster in Germany is a fantastic school, presitigious in academics, and Muenster is at the forefront of "green" initiatives. It is the perfect setting for John to continue his studies as a German language major with interests in International Studies and Philosophy. John's future plans are to pursue Master's/PhD degrees in Graduate School (who knows: maybe in Germany!), and his career options after this incredible study-abroad experience will be unlimited!
Friends, you are AWESOME! Your support and encouragement and understanding mean the world to us! Most of you know the challenges our family has faced over the years; our children's ability to rise above them and pursue "impossible dreams" inspires me every day! Cris' stalwart efforts to provide stability and safety for us ~ well, words fail me. He's been there for us for 20 years. He was right by my side when John had heart surgery at age 15, he was right by our side through all the nightmares we endured ~ he's somehow managed to hold us all together!
