There's no denying the heart and passion of these two incredible educators. They are doing everything they can to help the children of Detroit. Ellen met them on her show, and gave them something that is really going to help keep them going!

I was so sad when I saw this story, this school has been on my mind, I searched all over your website, until I found the story. I am not in a great position to donate money, but I would love to donate clothes, my kids have grown out of and I am sure these kids could use them.

I am hoping to find the address of the school. I am a knitter and noticed the children were wearing tee shirts of gray and blue or black. I would like to make hats for each of the students in their school colors. I understand there are 40. I am a retired teacher and worked in the Kenosha, Wisconsin area and have been to Detroit. I know how cold it gets there and thought I could help.
