What YOU Can Do

You can bring Myra's vision to fruition by helping create schools that are fair, safe, and inspiring for all boys and girls. Our individual and collective efforts can make that happen. As Margaret Mead once said:

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

You can move Myra's dream forward by making a financial contribution or through your own actions – or both!
