Today is the 34th Anniversary of my birth!
First, I thank God for blessing me with another year. And I thank Him for my blessed mother, who on Sept. 4, 1978 actually did ALL of the work. (smile)
I normally don’t do much out of the ordinary on my birthday, but today I am celebrating in a way that will do what I love doing: Giving Back To The Community.
The cool part is YOU get to join this extra special “E-Party With A Purpose.”
For the past five years I have been mentoring and volunteering at the extraordinary Elevated Places School located in Missouri City, Texas. If you drive down Cliffdale Street to the cul-de-sac, you will see a humble two-story home to your left. From the outside it appears to be just a normal family residence but inside it’s an entirely different story. Small bedrooms, a living room and dining area have been turned into classrooms, giving birth to some impressive accomplishments by the staff and students.
It is the location of this privately-owned school that was born out of the passion of a survivor of Hurricane Katrina and fellow parents seeking a more quality education for their children. I have personally witnessed this school accomplish more out of this two-story home than I’ve seen from schools with larger facilities, more resources, and bigger budgets.
Read more about the school at www.theelevatedplaces.com and in the story I wrote on them for The Final Call newspaper. Students recently appeared as audience guests at the show Great Day Houston!
As they usher in the new school year, there are a lot of things needed and I would like to celebrate my birthday by giving to them. Will YOU help me to help our future doctors, scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs?
My birthday wish is to get 34 persons to donate $34 by September 7. Click here to make a donation via PayPal http://theelevatedplaces.com/?p=1338. Click the words "...CLICK HERE TO DONATE!!!" located under the PayPal logo on the page.
