Go Green Gratefulness Tour Benefitting Education Is Freedom
WHAT: News | WHEN: September 9, 2009
|My friends Leanne & John are putting are putting on a Go Green Gratefulness Tour
event at the SMU campus here in Dallas on October 3rd. John will be
speaking on living with more passion & energy, health &
wellness... basically priorotizing your life. There will also be live
music, giveaways, and some fantastic free food. Leanne makes amazing
cakes (she made ours for our engagement party/shower), so the dessert
will be off the hook, no doubt. Best of all, the money raised from
this event is benefitting Education Is Freedom, a non-profit
organization here in town helping kids in Dallas Public Schools to 1)
stay in school, 2) graduate high school and 3) get their college
education paid for The EIF website is still being finished, but you can go there now and find out more information about this organization.
A little more info from Leanne:
"Just 36% of Dallas Public School kids graduate high school and then go on to college! Very scary if you think about it. The kids that participate in the Education is Freedom program are graduating and going on to college at an 87% rate! It doesn't cost the kids or schools anything; the kids just have to maintain a B average, and they get tons of support to do that. The program teaches life skills, offers mentoring, essay writing jam sessions, college and scholarship counseling, and much more. It helps the kids believe that even if no one in their family graduated high school or attended college, they can. Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert is a big supporter; he donated all 4 years of salary to the internship program that is part of Education Is Freedom."
If you live in or near Dallas, this is an opportunity for you benefit a fantastic organization while also learning how to prioritize what's most important to you to experience a deeper sense of fulfillment. A win-win for sure!
