Giving to the Bridge School. Don't Wait Around for Corrupt City Councils to be the Change...

Original post made by Daniel Mart, Mountain View, on Aug 17, 2012

I have one deep hope. A hope between now and mid-October. And here it is: in preparation for Bridge weekend this October, you are going to make a very generous donation to the school. :) Because we all remember how incredibly amazing special ed in California used to be, and how, despite its great downfall, there is a place up in Hillsborough led by a rich and famous -- and very gifted -- musical couple; an organization, a school, that refuses to let the old ways die. The spirit of the Jauna Briones OH -- the "true" JBOH -- still thrives in this magical place, and it shall forever serve as a beacon of hope. A great hope that one day, special ed all over this state will return to greatness, and that discrimination against the disabled will once again not dominate our daily issues.

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
