HELP...Joey Got Accepted!

Joey got accepted to Herberger Youth Scholar Academy at Arizona State University. We are very very proud of him.

We know in our hearts that this academic adventure is the best for Joey. He found 'his place' at Maker Faire and now 'his place' in school.  It makes my heart smile.

As a lot of you know we Fundraise for Joey's trips to Maker Faire. We are now faced with another dilemma...paying for Joey's school. Arizona State University cost $9,500.00 a year. We thought we had 4 more years before college and options of scholarships - but Joey always seems to have different ideas! :)

We have applied for a 'Autism' Scholarships, just to be told he doesn't qualify. He has to be in school for 100 days before going to a Private School. He's been in public school his whole life, but only in for 42 days this school year. ~silly

Some have said to use the Fundraising money for Joey's school. I have a really strong view on this..NO. The fundraising money was given for Maker Faire - and Maker Faire only!
I don't want to jeopardize him getting to continue his joy of Maker Faire.

If you'd like to help Joey we'd really appreciate it.

If you'd like the tax deduction..Joey is associated with a 501 c(3) nonprofit organization here in our town.
