You’d think that as soon as you graduate from high school, everyone would start throwing money at you to help pay for your college education. But the truth is different; most people don't even realize they can raise funds for their future by asking family and friends. When it's your time to move on in life, having all of those loved ones come together will be a wonderful thing—and now there's an easy way to get them involved!
After finishing high school, I was surprised when my parents refused to give me any money toward college, as I had not fully prepared for the expense that I was about to incur. I had assumed that they were fully prepared to pay my way through, but they weren't, as I was the fourth child that would be in college at the same time.
It was a wake-up call that made me realize I had missed a chance to raise funds for my future. I should have leveraged one of the greatest achievements of my life to secure financial support.
Upon graduation, I was so focused on the excitement of the moment that I failed to involve my loved ones in my future endeavors. In order to continue my education and attend college, I required financial support from my family, friends, and loved ones.
While I had worked part-time during the summers, I had saved very little as my parents had previously provided for my education. However, after graduation, I found myself in a tough financial situation with limited resources to fund my college education. Despite this, I remained hopeful that pursuing a higher education would lead to financial stability in the future.
Your family and friends are all important pieces of your life's puzzle. As they say, "it takes a village," and now is the perfect time to show them how much you appreciate them. Rather than giving or receiving ordinary graduation gifts like picture frames or teddy bears with your graduation year, consider asking your loved ones to contribute to your college education by purchasing a piece of your puzzle. This way, you can work together to help defer the costs of your education.

Ready to start Fundraising?
I have a fantastic idea to kick-start your graduation announcement. Why not include a puzzle piece and kindly request your family members to make a donation, sign the piece, and commemorate your outstanding accomplishment? They can conveniently return the piece along with their chosen method of gift (cash, check, etc.) so that you can add their heartfelt messages to your graduation puzzle.
Helpful Suggestion: Be sure to ask them to return your puzzle piece so that they can become a part of your puzzle.
Don't miss this opportunity to fundraise in a kind and meaningful manner. It's a great idea that you will remember and cherish forever.
Congratulations! You're on your way to great things.
