Three Things To Inspire Your Weekend (26)


Quote of the day:

Don't let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was. 
-Richard L. Evans

An investment Bank, Sandler O’Neill & Partners,that was once headquartered in the old World Trade Center’s south tower, has paid for the college tuition of 54 children of employees who died in the September 11 tragedy. The Sander O’Neill Assistance Foundation was founded to offer 100% educational support to 66 of the employees who died. Siblings Johnny, Emily and Robert Wright, are pictured above at a game, children of John W. Wright Jr. who was one of the employees who died.

A lawyer, Mike Morse, in Detroit has given full backpacks to every elementary school kid in Detroit. Many students show up to class with used or secondhand school supplies. His company, The Mike Morse Law Firm invested nearly $500,000 to purchase 23,000 backpacks filled with school supplies, for each student up to Grade 5.

As seen on ArchDaily, a home by Architects Pitsou Kedem Architects. It is located in Ramat Gan, Israel. With the design, the variations of opaque glass yields a colossal appearance of yet more concreteness unifying the building’s construction and yet still appear natural -with the glass acting to embrace the light.

  2. I just dropped off a couple of boxes of no-longer-needed stuff at my local thrift store; proceeds from sales go to habitat for humanity to help refurbish houses in my community.

  7. Great stories. I grew up near Detroit, so loved that one especially. It is cook that you were listening to Linkin Park. You seem to have eclectic musical taste...as do I.

  9. The youngest guy in that first picture must have been a baby when his father died cos it happened 14 years ago, and he is still young. So sad that he never got to have a relationship with his father.

  12. The backpack thing really struck me - one should think that in a rich country like the US, local government would be able to find the money for basic equipment for its students. We're not talking brandname bags and luxury pens etc., just the basics which sadly seem to be lacking in so many families.

  22. Love these kinds of inspiring stories. More often than not they may not hog the headlines as the benefactors usually refuse to have too much publicity. Thanks for sharing Blogoratti!

  24. I never think of Detroit as being 'poor' so the backpack thing really shocked me. How sad that, in this day and age, kids need handouts for basic educational equipment. I'm glad they got them.

  37. I sometimes think... if rich people gave more to the poor, especially in poor countries, instead of f. ex. buying 2000 pair of shoes...
