20 students will recount stories from their lives, with a variety of experiences, both memorable and deeply moving. All of the authors are English language learners, and they wish to inspire others to keep going "one more day", even when the circumstances around them may seem dire and uncontrollable. Each of the students is driven by empathy for so many others impacted by natural disasters, and they simply want to help in some small way. The writing process will not only serve others, but enhance the language and writing skills of our many authors with an authentic purpose. The funding will be used to purchase quality photobooks to send to various libraries and classrooms nationwide, and to Mexico.
