Today, I found out that Island Village Montessori School in Venice Beach, Florida has been busy with their fundraising campaign. Mary-Beth Sullivan, who worked behind the registration table at the Montessori Peace Academy conference, sends Ariane a special message:
"My committment to Ariane and her cause has not been forgotten! Please tell Ariane that I have started our first campaign with three 9-12 classes at Island Village Montessori Charter School in Venice, Florida. I have assistance from a parent who is willing to talk about Amman Imman on her Internet Radio Show. As I am writing this email to you, my students in Classroom 11 are putting together fundraising proposals for projects to help raise money. They have just seen a video called Ryan's Well about a nine-year-old boy who raised money for a school's well in Uganda. Our goal is to send as much money as possible to Ariane on February 14th, Valentine's Day!"
