One of my intentions this year was to give monetarily in addition to volunteering. This year I’m tracking my giving, for insights into what I’m passionate about. All I can say is I’m often moved to tears by humans and their generosity, passion, and hearts.
South Greenville Elementary :: Ellen started a gofundme campaign for them after hearing about 2nd grade teacher Michael Bronner in a 100% poverty level school. This teacher found new ways to teach his class when they were failing testing. He inspires them in fun ways in which they can hear the lessons and learn. He’s not only inspiring these kids but he inspires look at some of the ways I’m doing things that aren’t working and find another way.
