My friend’s daughter’s school is putting this amazing TEDx event on to raise money to go to the United Nations! Thanks for sharing this and please feel free to request that we post your educational community event or fundraiser by emailing Contact@SanDiegoBargainMama.com.
WHAT: TEDxVillageGate: “Let it Be Me”
TEDxVillageGate — a licensed, independently organized TED event — is being organized by Village Gate Children’s Academy, an innovative Montessori school for children grades K-7 in Encinitas, north of San Diego.
The theme — “Let It Be Me” — is inspired by the school’s mission to educate children as creative thinkers, problem-solvers and contributing community members. It’s a call to personal and community action: rather than waiting for an unknown “them” to fix things and create a better world, we must rise to the knowledge that “them” is “me.”
