They first appeared during Welcome Weekend, as students arrived on campus and moved into the dorms. From the courtyard to the parking lot, whimsical blue-and-gold banners adorned each lamppost, inspiring all who passed to “Dream Big.” Beneath the banners, oversized white rocking chairs, with “Dream Big” inscribed across the top of each, dotted the campus.
The banners and rocking chairs represent Life Pacific College President Jim J. Adams’ vision: that all members of the campus community would take the time to “dream big” about what God might have for them in the future. Students and staff alike began to be inspired! Visitors quickly took notice, and began asking how to purchase additional “Dream Big” rocking chairs.
And so, the Dream Big campaign came alive! The oversized, inviting “Dream Big” rocking chairs are now available for a tax-deductible $1000 donation. For every $1000 donated, $750 will go toward the newly established Dream Big scholarship, which provides emergency funding for students whose financial straits would otherwise force them to drop out of college.
Would you consider joining us in helping our students “dream big”? Order a “Dream Big” rocking chair for yourself, a friend – or the LPC campus! -- today. It is a wonderful way for you to help financially challenged students be able to stay in school.
Chairs can be shipped to the address you specify. Personal dedication plaques are available for additional small fee.
