WE REACHED OUR ORIGINAL GOAL!!!
Thank you so much! We are raising our goal to see if we can get Aeson another one of the camps available at ID Tech!
It's no secret our lil dude LOVES school and loves to learn!
Aeson has shown great dedication to his education and passion for learning like I've personally never seen in any 8 year old kid.
His desire to learn has certainly shown, not only with his grades but with his behavior and attitude about school.
After 1st grade, the school approached us about having him take some tests to see if he would be able to skip 2nd grade and jump straight to 3rd grade. He took the test and easily placed into 3rd grade.
As parents, we had concerns about how skipping a grade would go with him, from a social and educational point of view. As we go into the last quarter of the school year, we couldn't be happier in our decision.
Aeson is still testing in the top of his class and blowing past expectations for Ohio State Testing.
We are super proud of him but his thirst for more information and new challenges runs deep in his soul. This passion has us looking for new ways for him to continue his education outside of the confines of a traditional school.
One day, scrolling thru Facebook, I came across an advertisement for ID Tech Camps. It is a STEM based educational program that offers a variety of week long technology based summer camps that are hosted at over 150 different universities across the country.
The camps are focused on a variety of topics like robotics coding, AI, video editing, video game design and more.
I showed them to Aeson and he has been obsessed with the idea of attending.
Unfortunately, the camps are little expensive and due to circumstances that are no fault of his, we can't afford to send him to any of the camps this summer.
After some brief disappointment around the $1000+ price tag for the camps, we both decided that dwelling over it wasn't a good strategy and that we should take action.
We decided to start a fundraiser in an effort to raise the money to allow him to attend at least one camp this summer!
Our plan was to work together to design some cool t-shirts and a sticker to sell so that he can raise the money to cover tuition.
After all, who doesn't love a cool sticker and t-shirts?
Now that we've created the design, we're here and trying to raise money to send Aeson to Tech Camp!!
CHECK OUT THE T-SHIRT DESIGN
Any donation of $20 or more will receive a FREE "I helped Aeson get to Tech Camp" t-shirt.
All donations of less than $20 will receive a FREE "I helped Aeson get to Tech Camp" bumper sticker.
One thing I've been passionate about teaching Aeson is the value of hardwork and money.
We greatly appreciate anyone who is able and willing to donate to this experience for Aeson.
If you are unable to donate, we completely understand, but there is something you could still do to help him out! SHARE this GoFundMe with your friends and family!!
The more people who see it the better chance he has of reaching his goal and making it to Tech Camp this summer.Learn More About ID TECH CAMP here
The spaces are filling up fast so we need to act soon before they're all booked up.
If we happen to miss the cutoff this year, the money will be used to send Aeson to Tech Camp next summer, but our fingers are crossed that we can get him there this summer!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about our GoFundMe!!
We truly appreciate you and everyone else who's shown interest in furthering Aeson's education!
Bless you, take care, and don't forget to SHARE!
