PS 129/MS 129 Fundraising Campaign

$1,160 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 15 people in 5 months
Hello all. Last year I was honored by my grade school PS 129 in Harlem, New York City, with "Dr. Preston James IV Day." The students honored me with song, singing and video presentations.  With the help of friends I was able to donate 13 laptops to the school. I told the faculty, parents, and most importantly students that my initial visit would not be a one time occurence and I would come every year if I could to check on them and assist. 

I've been invited back by the school principal, Odelphia Pierre and I humbly accepted the invitation. When asked what the needs of the school were she stated that the kids could use help with learning how to "code." So this year one of the projects we will be fundraising is "Dash & Dot" Robots, to assist the students at PS/MS 129 learn how to code. 

These robots will assist in helping the kids learn a topic that will be very much needed in the workforce of the future. Having an educated, trained, and motivated workforce will be very important  in determining not only where the jobs go, but who gets these jobs of the future. Help me help the kids of PS 129 in Harlem by assisting me in providing them with the tools and support needed.  Me and the kids at PS 129 thank you all for your support. 

You can check out the Dash and Dot Robots here:
