Just received this message from Bingham Elementary about their efforts to help the people of Haiti and thought I would pass it along.
In the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti and our Bingham community service project, we will kick off "Coins for Haiti." We are asking students to bring in coins for the month of February to help the families of Haiti. The money will be donated to Doctors without Borders in Haiti for medicine and medical supplies. I am contacting other principals, a MSU volunteer group, Trinity and other churches and the Mayor's office to see if we can make this a Lansing initiative. Bingham will kick off the campaign on Friday at our Reading Rocker of Martin Luther King, JR. at 1: 30 PM in honor of his memory and Black History Month. I am hoping that this can become a Lansing community initiative to show our concern and set an example of humanitarianism. Thank you.
