I give because it gives me the ultimate joy to see others happy. I have volunteered for an organization called KMRIA, Inc. KMRIA, Inc., under the direction of Dr. Donald McGee, is now in its 15th year of operation as a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational corporation and has tutored 305 children (k-14) who have been classified as 'drop-outs' from our public schools. The firm uses the PLATO (K-14) in all academic subjects, Ripple Effects for psychological needs and Rosetta Stone (in 9 foreign languages) for instruction.

KMRIA is in operation in the New England states and in New York, New Jersey, and Texas. Their international contacts include Germany, Great Britain, and the Philippines. However, their access to contact with other teachers and students in foreign countries is an ongoing process that may take several years to complete. Alliances with the public libraries, schools, and most importantly, with the teachers and children, are vital aspects to making their mission successful. What they need is financing for the purchase of computers which will enable their students to connect with diverse people and cultures throughout the world. The age of communication truly is here, and we can invest in teaching the children of tomorrow the use of our inventions to bring about a peaceful, wholesome world.

Thank you
