Mother of Twin Daughters Wins Money for Children's College Fund

Miami, FL (I-Newswire) June 6, 2013 - The unofficial college savings day, May 29, better known as "529Day", intended to raise awareness about 529 College Savings Plans. This year Savingforcollege.com hosted a free 529 plan Q&A webinar with "529 Guru" Joseph Hurley, raffling a $529 GradSave gift card that can be used for any 529 plan nationwide. The team is happy to announce Nicole Johnson of Meridian, Mississippi, a mother of 2 beautiful twin daughters who recognizes the importance of education and chose to attend the webinar, has won the $529 scholarship.

Nicole says "Education is the most important thing for one to possess, it is something that no one can take that away from you and I want my children to have the best in life". Mrs. Johnson's daughters may only be 8 years old but already know what they want to be when they grow up; Nichelle wants to be a doctor and Nikayla hopes to be a beautician. Mrs. Johnson hopes her new winnings and her daughters GradSave profiles will give her the boost she needs to save for their education costs. "I wish I would have known about GradSave earlier but I am glad I found them, I plan to use GradSave from now on, especially for birthdays and holidays to minimize the amount of toys" says Mrs. Johnson. Nichelle's GradSave profile can be found at http://gradsave.cohttp://gradsave.com/nichellesjohnsonm/nichellesjohnson while Nikayla's GradSave profile can be visited at http://gradsave.com/nikaylamjohnson all gifts are welcome and will be solely used for college.
