Need your help

HI all…a bit off topic again…but I told you that Brooklyn College Academy is up for a major grant -100K for its new Mindfulness Center. Daily voting ends on October 30th. Sadly, we are in 11th place…only five win (most votes).

I never ask for help..but need it now. Please vote (and if you can do that daily, hurray!): Brooklyn College Academy, teacher Linda Noble:

Please spread the word. If you have major networks you are in, please get the word out. We need a miracle at this point.

The Mindfulness Center is a unique program…we will be training all teachers in mindfulness practices, students will be trained to become mindfulness practitioners (to lead peers) and we will try to research the impact.

We had a great opportunity this week to have the First Lady visit:
