Where you can make a difference!

The following message was posted on a haiga multimedia group I belong to. My father was a school superintendant and my mother a first grade teacher so I knew more intimately than many, even then, how desparate schools are for basics. My mother often took in her own supplies for her classes each year, as did many other teachers. Here's a chance to help. Read Soji's message and bookmark the site until July 22, the deadline. You can vote three times a day and help one of these schools.

Soji's message....

I don't usually do this sort of thing, but I found this site
yesterday where the dicount retailer is sponsoring a contest for schools in need to win $10,000 towards paying for whatever they need. Each school presents a video and visitors to the site vote for the school they feel is most deserving. You get 3 votes a day thru July 22.My personal choice was Rowlesburg, West Virginia, I voted for them,and I am going to send a check to them when I get an address and a name. Here is the URL to check out the videos, and choose who
to vote for:

This was an eye opening experience for me, I'm sure the teachers on this list can appreciate what's going on here, but I think it's sad
that in this country schools have to go begging for it's not
sad, it's pathetic and just plain wrong on so many levels. I'll stop at
at that.

Pris it is sad--more so for the kids than anyone else. As a teacher, and principal--it is wrong--the whole thing

It really is a sad situation. We pay for bombs but not schools.
