Hello there everyone! I have a special request today. I have a friend that is trying to help one of the schools that feeds into the Middle school where he is a band director. They are trying to win $20,000 from Big Lots but most of the children that go there don't have computers much less an internet connection. So we are all trying to do our little part in helping them get the votes to win.
Head on over to Big Lots Lots2Give Program and vote for Britain Elementary. They are competing against 115 other schools! I know that you can vote 3 times in a row but I don't know if it's 3 times per day every day until the voting ends. Voting does end on July 4, 2011. I've already voted and have to wait a full 24 hours before I can see if I can vote again. If you have a blog, have a facebook account, twitter or are a member of any of the other social media sites out there we would appreciate your help by getting the word out there!
Here is what Britain Elementary has to say via the Big Lots Lots2Give site:
We Say No to Bullying!
Irving, TXWe Say No to Bullying!Say No to Bullying! Britain Elementary school in Irving, Texas, is nestled in one of the lowest socioeconomic areas of town. Our students, however, exhibit strong character traits and denounce many of the actions and examples seen around them. At Britain, bullying is a subject that is taught often. Our students “Say No to Bullying!” and watch for warning signs amongst their peers. We would love to order character education banners and materials to keep bullying out of our school!
So what are you waiting for? VOTE!
