What is The Cause? Mindfulness.
Inspiring my students and others to be curious in the hopes that one of those curiosities will turn into a life passion.
How can you help? Support my work to develop students' minds and push people to think critically. You might think that teachers and schools can do it all, but they can't. If you've ever been to one of my programs or events, you know what I try to do outside the classroom. If you haven't worked with me, take a look at some of my talks and other info on this site. My many colleagues and I are doing some amazing things. Some of it requires support from people like you.
If you support me, what will I support?
* Connecticut History Day - http://www.historydayct.org -- This is an affiliate of National History Day. Kids from middle school and high school compete for top honors by doing a wide range of really amazing history projects. CT History Day recently lost its funding and now the only people supporting it are you and me. Will you stand up for the future of history in CT and the nation?
* I do a ton of workshops for teachers and students. Sometimes it's literally a matter of paying for a bus. Can you help with that? Will you help to support the cost of books and other materials? You might think, "someone else should pay for that. Or the schools and universities should do it." But if you really think about it you know this isn't always possible.
*Halloween - Do you like my displays? Do you think they push people to think and learn? If you answer yes to any of these questions, then support my efforts. The displays become more elaborate each year and though I scrounge an awful lot, it does cost a good bit.
So why support me rather than some other person or organization?
I hope you do support plenty of other people. My hope is you'll do the same for me and my goals. If you know me or have looked at this site, you know I get things done. I try to make a difference.
How much is enough? You decide that. It could be $5 or $105. A million wouldn't be bad either, but I'm not in fantasy land. So there it is, you've been asked. What are you going to do now?
I speak at conferences, offer lectures, discussions, and workshops. Contact me if you have any questions or special requests.
