Getting With the Program - Supporting Special School Programs with Schoola

My son the "rock star'" supporting Schoola's Support a School/Adopt-a-School Campa

Support Schoola's Support a School/Adopt-a-School Campaign

You don't have to be Oprah or Ellen to support a school. Yes it's cool that celebrities get behind some big projects and help out schools and families and communities in need, but they can't do it alone. It takes a lot of people to change the world, and one small gesture-on my part, on your part, on anyone's part-can make a big difference in someone's life. So when Schoola approached me to be a part of their "20 Days of School" Adopt-a-School Campaign, I couldn't say no.

I know how important school progams are to a kid, especially when your parents can't afford to pay to put you in a music class or a sports program or an arts program. These programs teach kids cooperation and challenge them and give them a sense of self worth and allow them to grow by leaps and bounds while keeping them out of trouble. Or, they feed them, or help clothe them, or help pay for books or playgrounds or to clean up their communities. School programs are important. And its nice when people can come together to support them to show our youth that we care about their education and their futures.

Me, I hate to hear when music programs get cut in our schools. I think its sad when kids don't get a chance to explore their hidden talents and get to learn about the various instruments they might enjoy just for fun or play in a school band or a choir. It was one of my favorite classes in school. And if you don't think a music class can have a big impact on a kid, just watch Mr. Holland's Opus and you'll see all the great things a music teacher can teach our kids.

That's why I've chosen to support the KIPP Academy music progam in the Bronx that saves music in our schools and helps to buy instruments for the kids who can't afford to buy their own.



Schoola is working with F4F and KIPP by:
