25 Days To Make A Difference

25 Days To Make A Difference tells the story of Laura, an 11 year old blogger who accepted a challenge in December of 2007. She embarked on a journey of completing one good deed a day for every day between December 1st and December 25, 2007. The response to her blog was overwhelming and her good deed a day has not stopped. Her blog has detailed her efforts to raise funds for various charity organizations throughout the year. She has had over 38,000 hits on her blog and has received media attention for her efforts.

Take a look at the very first days of her posts to get an idea how her decision to bring about change inspired a community. Then let us know if you want to jump on board and be a part of our efforts to make a difference.

After being out of the classroom for a few days and hearing some great speakers who were incredibly motivational and inspirational, I thought I would pose a question to all of you.

How can a student go from good to great?

That's it. I'm curious as to what your comments will be.


For those of you who were unable to upload your podcasts to Blogger, I have uploaded them to the following website:

If you haven't emailed me your podcast or tried to upload it to Blogger on your blog, please do so.

Enjoy them. Feel free to leave comments both on this webpage or on the blogs themselves.
Not bad for a first attempt in the world of broadcasting.
