Off topic: Help Bright Star School in Kenya receive a library

Bright Star School kids receive milk
Help the children receive a library from American Express


My favorite charity is Bright Star School in Kenya which was founded by my middle school teacher, Miss Jan Hinkle. Miss Hinkle personally oversees every detail of the school and 100% of the donations received are used in the school with no administrative overhead. Many of the children are AIDS orphans who otherwise would never have a chance to get an education. Small things like a pair of socks can make these kids day.

I received an urgent message from Miss Hinkle asking for on line votes so that the school can potentially win a library from an American Express members outreach project. Would you help and take a moment to register and vote for Bright Star School to be in the top 25 nominations?

And if you are feeling particularly blessed and would like to give to a worthwhile charity, please consider Miss Hinkle's school. It is amazing how much they can do with so little.
