College Fund for Jasper

I've had a few folks indicate a desire to make a donation to a fund specifically for Jasper ... like a college fund. And, in talking with Elise, she liked the idea of an education fund for Jasper, too. So, I opened a 529 pre-paid tuition account. In Washington State it's called the GET (Guaranteed Education Tuition) Program. Basically, it's a way to buy college tuition for 18-year-old Jasper at today's rates. Although it's sponsored by Washington State, Jasper can use these funds at "nearly any public or private college in the country." For lots more information, go to If you are someone who would like to contribute to Jasper's future college costs, you can make your check payable to "Guaranteed Education Tuition Program," note that it's for beneficiary Jasper Kinnamon, Account No. 07010422, including your name, address, and phone number. Mail to:
Guaranteed Education Tuition
PO Box 84824
Seattle, WA 98124-6124

Thanks much, Suanne (Jasper's Gramma)
