DonorsChoose: special request

Jan 04 2017 Published by under Uncategorized

We at Scientopia like to support DonorsChoose, and today I have a special request. One of our highest poverty high schools in the metro area where I live has a newly developing choir program. They have the opportunity to go on their first long-distance choir trip this spring--but they need help raising the funds. This is the kind of trip that suburban schools in wealthier areas have no problem with, because parents can kick in whatever is needed to make it happen. But I have family who work at this school, and they know that for the students here, very few of their parents and families are able to help pay for something this major--this trip won't be possible if they can't get the support they need from the wider community. So please consider throwing a little money their way and helping bring these kids on the kind of music trip that every kid should get to have in high school:
