Well this one isn't going to be about anything computer related. What this talk is about, is a once in a life time experince for a bunch of elementry school students, who will get to go to Space Camp! My daughter and 29 other students were selected to attend a week long space camp at the US Space Center, in Huntsville Alabama. The students all had to write an essay detailing why they should go to the camp. Here is a link to the space camp. They are going on March 19, 2011
The school (J.J. Curling, Corner Brook, NL) received a large grant of 20K for the students to make the trip. However the grant does not cover all the costs of the trip and they need to raise about 15K more. They are currently selling tickets on a $1000.00 Canadian Dollar Bill. There are 10,000 tickets printed and are selling for $1.00 each. The Draw date is March 10, 2011.
If you are interested in some tickets, please contact me by email @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will have 60 tickets on Next Monday February 7, 2011.
Or if you wish to make some sort of donation, you can do so through the paypal donation button I have on the top right of my blog. No donation is too small for this cause.
a big thank you to all.
