We are happy to announce we will again be partnering with Color Brighton Green to collect recyclable items at the Brighton Farmers Market! We receive $0.01 to $0.02 per item for our school building project from TerraCycle and it adds up pretty fast! So check out our Recycling page to see what you can be collecting and come over to the market to drop them off.

For the second year I am asking that you, my friends, join me for Trick or Treat with Josiah and Friends!
All you have to do is go Trick or Treating like you always do. But afterwards, when you are scarfing down your candy, remember to save your candy wrappers for us to send in to TerraCycle.
Last year we raised over $10 just by sending in your candy wrappers. Let’s see if we can raise more this year! Will you help?
For more information on all of the items we can recycle with Terracycle see our Recycling page.
Here is the latest update from our friends at Sudan Sunrise. Read to the bottom where we’ve highlighted!

4. I highly recommend to you Jordan Conn’s recent electronic book on Manute Bol, especially the IPOD version that is loaded with multi-media extras. It’s short, a great read, and tells the story behind the Turalei school and the origin of the saying “my bad”! http://atavist.net/defender/
Last weekend my friend Abel sold lemonade at his lemonade stand and donated the money he made to help build our school. He raised $11.85. Not bad for a couple hours of work. Every little bit helps!
Maybe next summer we’ll invite more of our friends to help raise money with a lemonade stand. Great idea Abel!
Thanks to everyone who came out for our mini-golf fundraiser at the Clubhouse Fun Center. We will update you all with how much we were able to raise when we get the amount. Thanks again for your support!
For anyone who couldn’t make it out but would like to donate you can do so through our Donate page.
The Second Annual Josiah and Friends Mini-Golf Fundraiser
Wednesday, August 31st
5PM – 8PM
The Clubhouse Fun Center
70 Jay Scutti Boulevard – Henrietta (Map)
Mini-golf, go-karts, video games and more!
A generous portion of the proceeds will be donated to our school building project in Sudan. Bring your friends, the more people that come the more money that goes to our school!
I wrote a song about our school building project with my friend Tom Lake of the band Ju-Jajuba. It’s a really fun song that’s great to clap and sing along to!
To celebrate South Sudan’s July 9th independence we are selling the song online to help raise money to build the school. Every dollar that’s donated goes to Sudan Sunrise to help provide an education to kids in Southern Sudan!
The song will be available for digital download below. If you would like a CD copy please email us at email@example.com.
