The Hollywood Education and Literacy Project

The Hollywood Education and Literacy Project is something that I have been involved with and volunteered at for many years. It's a really cool program that does one-on-one tutoring for people who need it in order to boost literacy around the world. They use the study technology that L. Ron Hubbard put together. It's a very cool program.
Anyway, I got a great email from them, asking for a donation in order to help the newest addition to their staff, George the Plant, get a new home (pot) as he was cooped up in his current one. George - being a very generous guy - would give any additional money to the HELP project. I had to give a donation then - I mean helping kids and plants? What else can you do? Anyway, I donated some money and one of my own plants, Charlotte, to keep George company. My friend at HELP, Zach, sent out another email showing Charlotte and George meeting for the first time and I am in it too! I have to post it, it's just too cute.

Dear Friends,

As most of you know this is George.

We here at the H.E.L.P. School have started a fundraiser to buy George a new pot because he needs room to stretch and grow. George decided that any donations over the cost of his pot would be given to the H.E.L.P. School to buy new courses for the students. (He is such a great guy)

Not only have we been receiving donations from people who want to help George but also we received a new friend for George named Charlotte.

I just wanted to thank Julia Scott-Douglas for her contribution to George and for bringing in Charlotte to keep him company.

George, Charlotte and Julia

If you would like to make a contribution to George please call Zach Bolger at 323.463.2100. It is a tax deductable donation and you will recieve a personal thank you card from George for donations over $25 and a special gift for over $50.

That's a great way to do a fundraiser. Very creative. I hope George and Charlotte are very happy together :)

Isn't it too cute?! :)
BTW - George and Charlotte are getting along great. Charlotte is very happy in her new home - she was getting a little sunburnt at my house because I didn't have a place to put her inside. Now she has a place to grow and thrive. :)
