Eileen Alps, a local resident of Evanston, saves as much
money as she possibly can. She doesn’t do it for herself, or out of habit.
She does it for the child she wishes to have.
When Eileen left her public school job to teach in the private sector, she took a 50 percent pay cut. Although she loves her new job, she left behind a fantastic benefits package, one that would have covered the In Vitro Fertilization treatments she needs in order to conceive a child. Eileen dreams of saving enough money to be able to pay for these treatments in order to start a family.
Eileen has been selected as one of five finalists from across the US in the 10,000 Reasons to Save contest, and could potentially receive a $10,000 cash prize from Valpak and Savings.com to help her reach her savings goal. In order to win the grand prize, Eileen has to receive the highest amount of votes for her saving story, which will be shared on www.ReasonsToSave.com. Voting begins on September 25th and ends on October 4th, one vote per valid email address daily.
I hope you’ll join me in sharing Eileen’s story with the community and bringing her one step closer to fulfilling her dream.
