College Fund for the Maola Twins

John and Ellie's father, David Maola, fought with all of his might to live for his family.  Due to his health issues, David could not obtain adequate life insurance to protect his family.  Only days after their 5th Birthdays, these two beautiful children lost their loving father, and Allison is now their sole provider.  In lieu of sending flowers and food for the funeral, the family is asking that you  consider a donation, no matter how small, to help fund the future college education of John and Ellie.   We intend to use this site for many years to come in continuance of raising money for their college education.  Even though the goal may seem high at 100,000.00, that will not go very far for two college educations 13 years into the future.

All of the money raised here will be put into a trust fund for the children or invested into 529 college funds for their benefit.  You can read about David's story at or at
