My Students

My students are determined to succeed. They overcome tremendous obstacles just to show up for school each day. They come from a high poverty neighborhood in Pennsylvania. Our school is situated in a neighborhood plagued by violence.

Many of the children we serve come from single-parent homes or are living with grandparents or even in foster care, but they show up ready to learn and determined to succeed.

My job is to help them reach that goal. I would love your support.

My Project

What we are trying to accomplish is a fog haze feature that will take all of our stage presentations to the next level. This lighting fog effect gives depth and authentisity to live stage performances. We also are trying to get light stand to hold stage lights and can be moved for maximum effect. With these tools the level of professionalism can be brought to our shows that allow our audiences to be transported to any magical destination that we need them to be with click of a few switches. The fog fluid is what is put into the fog machine to create this awesome effect.
