Please help Mr. Schultz in his quest to empower these kids and build their confidence in the classroom and in life!

*UPDATE* Due to overwhelming generosity, I have increased my goal to $1000.00 in order to allow Mr. Schultz to take his class on a field trip to La'akea Community Farm for Developmentally Disabled adults (www.laakea.org)!

Mr. Schultz is the dedicated teacher of a class of special needs students at Baldwin High School in Maui, HI. Most of his students require their own personal aide and many are confined to a wheel chair. The school system does not have enough funds to provide him with a budget for the tools he needs to teach his student basic life skills such as cooking, recycling and gardening. Donations will go to weekly grocery shopping trips to teach students how to write and follow a shopping list and then participate in cooking a meal in the class. Another project Mr. Schultz has attempted is gardening but the class lacks the necessary equipment to allow all the students to get involved. Mr. Schultz would love to see more art projects and musical instruments in the classroom as many children respond very positively to sound and creative expression but they lack a stereo and supplies for these types of activities.
Please help to transform the learning environment for these kids just in time for the holidays!
