Fly High Scholarship Fund

Family and Friends,

For the last 18 months, our little Birdie has given us countless gifts — her wide smile (also that mischievous grin), the brightness of her big beautiful eyes, the joy of witnessing her many firsts in life, that warm feeling from squeezing her squishy little body, the love that every parent gets from feeling needed and delivering, and the humility that’s part and parcel of knowing one day we might have to let her fly.

That day has come and we want to send her on her way with a gift worth at least a fraction of what she’s given us. Won’t you please consider donating a small sum to seed her college education, 100% of which will go to her California Scholarshare 529.

We send you our deepest gratitude for whatever you’re able to give to support this incredible little person, whom we love with everything we got.
