Update (12/7/11): I will match every donation dollar for dollar up to my goal! That's right - we're raising twice as much and your dollar goes twice as far. Still, completely tax deductible!
Friends and Family:
As you know, I've been involved with Citizen Schools for the past several years both as a Citizen Teacher and as a member of their Massachusetts Board of Advisors. A news story about my involvment is embedded on this page for you to see.
This holiday season I'll be traveling to India to take part in the Classic Run Auto Rickshaw Rally, racing 1000km from Chennai to Parvoor. This race is about fun, exploring India, and raising awareness and money for education. We'll visit 3 schools and deliver supplies while competing in the rally and generally making fools of ourselves. The trip runs from December 28th through January 10th.
I'm asking that you support Citizen Schools here in Boston by supporting our auto rickshaw. You can donate a penny a kilometer ($10) or a dime ($100) or any amount you can afford! If our rickshaw makes it to Parvoor, we'll be thankful, and Citizen Schools will get help to continue serving at-risk middle schoolers with high-impact extended learning time.
If you sign up to support me, I'll also keep you up to date on the race and send you pictures (hopefully during the race, if we can sort it out, but for sure afterwards).
Please join me in supporting an amazing cause that now has a 15 year track-record of success.
Warm thanks for your time and consideration,
