Open Mic Night & a Math-athon

Open Mic night at the Grounds was inspiring. Harrison (age 9) set it off with one of his original pieces. I always get excited when I see kids in their space- conformable with themselves and life, free enough to stand before a group of adults and speak. -And not just saying ‘anything!’ He had a message.

*appaulds for Harrison *

Open mic night is every Wednesday starting at 7:30. Vincent Tolliver is a regular but we came out with the kids- unfortunatly we didn’t get to hear his piece (as per him, this piece was not for their ears-lol)

Speaking of Harrison, you’ll be amazed when you meet this young man (maybe not- if you’ve met his parents since the apple does not fall far…). Harrison is participating in a Math-athon to help children with cancer for St. Jude Hospital. He is asking for our support, and asking for us to contribute any amount of money- per math problem he complete- i.e. $1 per problem he solves. You can sign up in the Grounds Coffee House (@ the Sky Lofts)- they may not have the sign out so be sure to ASK. It’s for a good cause, and he’s no slacker. How many kids do you know, who are willing to do MATH to help someone? I normally see kids by the side of the interstate with a football uniform or donuts asking me to “donate to my team”………. the unknown team?
