KIPP Durham Cocktail Fundraiser
It’s hard to believe I haven’t blogged about this yet, considering it’s a video highlighting one of my favorite places, and some of my favorite people, in the world. Y’all have heard me talk about KIPP, and specifically KIPP Gaston, before. In fact, I taught on the peanut field turned high performing school for three years before moving to Durham, and find myself missing it on a regular basis. So when asked to put together a video telling their story for an upcoming fundraising event, I was all in.
The great news? KIPP is expanding outside of Gaston to both Halifax county (next year), and Durham (!!!!) in 2015. Yup, we’re excited here at Big Dog Little Bed headquarters (conveniently located in the heart of the Bull City). Take a look at why…
And don’t hesitate to spread the word to family and friends who 1) might be interested in supporting them, or 2) those who have kids entering 5th grade in 2015.
