Jenn commented on Eric Trott's blog post New Idea - New Banner
"That's a great idea, Eric. I really like how you can earn something by giving to others. I grew up in Florida and they have a program where you can earn college scholarships by doing community service (and a few other things) which was super…"

New Idea - New Banner

Since today was "think day" I spent most of my time wandering around the city, just looking and watching. And the more I looked around, the more things I saw could be fixed - such as graffiti on the walls that needed to be painted over or houses that needed to be fixed up. Then I went about figuring out how they could be changed, and what I came up with was through youth volunteers.You see, most of my issues with coming up with an idea were the things that I wanted to help find solutions for. I…See More

"I think that once a resource reaches a critical level then people will force themselves to find an alternative source for their needs, or look towards someone else to come up with alternative. We are seeing that now with energy. There was a game…"

"That sounds like a great place to start. I hope EVOKE helps you with working out possible ways forward with the project - and that maybe you can collaborate with others who have an education focus too. It's definitely SUCH an important factor…"

The E-Mails have been Sent

So I have spent the morning constructing and sending out an introduction letter too the college, the United Way and the Rochester School District to ask for their support in this project.



While it is a small step it is the first of many that I will need to take in the 30 days that I have left to complete this personal mission of mine. The next 29 are going to be much tougher than copy/paste a letter.



Here is too the future. Let the negotiations begin. Oh, the stress but… Continue

Scholarships for Inner City Children - It's a Start

What: My plan, considering the last one came to an abrupt end, is to get at least one graduating inner city student an associates scholarship to my local community college who would not otherwise, for any number of possible reasons, be able to acquire the money needed to go.



Why: If you have read any of my last posts the answer to this question should come as no surprise. I believe that a poor education (and by poor I mean "lack of continued") is the source for so many other problems… Continue

Not So Original After All

So the Mayor got back to me last night and "respectfully" suggested that I check out the United Way since they are pretty much already doing what I was planning on doing. Son of a...



So my question now is "why isn't it working?" The educational system is still a bust. There are still people working 2 or 3 jobs just to get food on the table. The Crime rate is out of control. I mean, look at this:…

basket

This is a basket woven from the sweetgrass found in the marshes around Charleston, SC. This is a local art that should definitely be passed down to future generations. These baskets are not only beautiful, but also very useful as the grass from…

Saving the planet's water one donation at a time!

In an effort to form an alliance with a water conservationist, I sought to research the best ways for me to better provide for a water-rich society. In my search, I discovered many organizations and various ways to help, but one group that stood out most to me is the Water Charity. Through productive and community organizing programs, Water Charity seeks to provide funds for needed projects to help bring water and different resources to regions of the world in need. My participation in this…See More

Mayan Secret

This object is solely the work of Corkboard and sharpie. The meaning behind this artifact is to give light to the Mayan pyramids and how they were aligned with the stars. I personally feel that this artifact can help future Generations understand…
