Hey, Jazz Pickles. Lately I’ve decided to try to do good things for others as part of my regular routine and I’ve enjoyed the way it makes me feel. I’m not going to be posting about stuff like this a lot, so don’t get your corset tangled, but here’s one that comes from my boyfriend-in-law (my adult daughter’s live-in boyfriend.) He’s a very innovative and dedicated high school science teacher, and a damned good person.
He’s teaching mostly under-privileged kids who are trying to get to college––most of them will be the first in their family to do so. He hand-picked these students for his new engineering class and has a group that are talented in, and serious about science. He wants to buy a 3-D printer for the classroom and is using a crowd-source funding page to do it. If he raises half the money by Sunday, the Bill Gates Foundation will match it!
I gave some money this morning––have a look and think about pitching in a few bucks, too, if you can. I think helping serious low-income students is a great way to improve society in the future.
Here are my goofy daughter and her serious scientist boyfriend, Chris.
