“Woman, I can hardly express, my mixed emotion at my thoughtlessness, after all I’m forever in your debt.” – John Lennon
The party that became so powerful by sinking
Is dreaming up new promises because promises
And being resolute in conference with the
ad man’s expertise
The majority by their silence shall pay for days like these
The right to build communities is back behind
‘Tween government and people stands the right arm
of the law
And shame upon the patriot when the mark of the
Is a family without a home and a pensioner in need
Those whose lives are ruled by dogma are waiting
for a sign
The Better Dead Than Red Brigade are listening on the line
And the liberal, with a small L cries in front of the TV
And another demonstration passes on to history
Peace, bread, work, and freedom is the best we
And wearing badges is not enough in days like these

At the beginning of the year, we decided to start a project to fund teachers. We continue to fund teachers who need help with classroom projects the best we can. As we have funded a couple of projects, it’s always so rewarding to see the smiles of the students and teachers.
Thank you to all the teachers out there that continue to go above and beyond their duty. Being able to share knowledge by purchasing books for a classroom library is rewarding beyond any recognition. If we can, we would like to help
Sometimes, in times like these maybe, it’s always best to focus on the things you can control, not the things you can’t.
A few weeks ago we decided that instead of funding our annual scholarship that was started 3 years ago to honor out deceased dog, we wanted to help schools or individual teachers get some of the books, pads, pencils and school projects by funding those instead.
So far, we have been able to start helping teachers and students in need. Here is our original posting, and feel free to use the there link to seek the help you need.
We don’t have a lot of money to put into this, and may indeed begin asking friends and family to step up and help us fund these schools, but for now, we remain dedicated to helping teachers keep their classes functioning.
So, if you’re a teacher, follow the link and just ask. If you’re a person with some cash and want to help, use the link below. Just for the record, we will use our own money to fund these projects, but it’s pretty obvious to us at this point, that we could help a lot more teachers and students if we had more cash on hand.
To be clear, any money anyone donates will go towards teachers and classroom supplies, every last penny. We don’t want or need any money from this project, so we can guarantee every single cent will go to fund schools, teachers and students. There is no overhead or hidden expenses. We will offer full transparency on where the money is spent, how much and what it was used for. Simple.
