This month, I have a very vested interest. The husband of one of my college friends is in the running for some of their grant money.
John is a music teacher hear in NJ. NJ's school budgets got completely slammed this year - nearly every district has had to face really heartbreaking cuts. John's district has lost programs, teachers and their kids now pay for basics like playing on a sports team or taking the bus.
John's going for a grant so he can create a piano lab in his school. As someone who practically lived in the music room during high school, I can't tell you enough how much of a difference this would make to the school. You can hear the pitch in his own words here:
You can log a vote for John here: http://www.refresheverything.com/LongHillMusic and you can vote every day this month. The top ten in this category will be funded - and I would love to see it be John!
Can you help us make it happen?
