Hi Ellen and Company, Your show gives hope to those without. As with other American family's, I too will not bring in the new year with Joy. Having only worked one month all year as an Union Mason my January brings me no income. Not wanting to rely on welfare I would rather work to support my family. I have given my spare time to our local school by way of volunteering evenings to open our weight room to students and the community. Additionally I have been elected to the School Board. Seeking grants for solar power to teach our children future tech. skills has been exhausting and not very productive. Joining clubs (Adventure Club) has been very rewarding to see students work towards sustainability, Recycling and Technical Sciences. I only hope I can persuade your good nature to consider my request to introduce solar power in our school. Thanks So Much. Harry

Dear Ellen, I write to you to ask for your help. As a School Board member I am attempting to promote Life Skills, Sustainability, Honesty and Equality for all Youth. It has been very difficult attempting to convey the importance of knowledge in an ever increasing Technological world. I have lived in the North New York area for twenty years + and have been Solar power and wind powered, with no ties to the Grid. I intend on obtaining funds for our School to install Solar Panels as an Pilot program to show the potential of this technology. I'm Positive that after the rewards of this venture are reveled, the public and Staff will realize the importance to invest in further projects to be less dependent of increasing costs of electricity. We have implemented Recycling, Gardening and Attempting Composting when we can. PLEASE HELP OUR CHILDREN
