Wishes For Emily
Organized by: Jason Javers
My wish is to give Emily the life she deserves, will you help me?
On July 16, 2014 at 8:22 p.m., after 21 hours of labor, a beautiful miracle was brought into this world. Her name is Emily Rosemarie Javers. Tragically, just hours after her birth on July 17, 2014 at 12:15 a.m, her life was changed forever. Her father was killed in a head on car accident. Within the first few hours of her life, Emily had experienced a loss that very few can relate to. Unfortunately, Emily will never know her father, and that is something we could never imagine.
Emily’s mother, Brittany, will now face the challenge of raising her as a single parent. The staggering cost of raising a child in today’s dollars is approximately: $162,000. That number jumps to over $275,000, if you plan to pay for your child’s education. These figures include cost for healthcare, education, housing, food, transportation, etc. and are paid until the child reaches 18 years old. (Take a moment to explore the cost of raising a child on this great website: http://www.babycenter.com/cost-of-raising-child-calculator.) Our goal is to raise $137,500- half of what it costs to raise a child and put them through college. We ask that you help make this possible, by making a wish for Emily. Big or small, every penny will make a difference.
As Emily’s godparents our wish is to provide Emily with as much security as we can offer her. We have promised to be there for her at every stage of life, from her first daddy-daughter dance to even being the man to walk her down the aisle. Our love for her is endless but this will never fill the void in her heart. Our only solace is to give her the best chance to be as successful as she can be and the life an innocent child deserves.
All donated funds will be placed in a holding account for Emily under supervision of a Financial Advisor.
