The Expectations Project -
The vision of this faith-based organization is shown in these statements from their web site: "Imagine what might be possible if just a handful of people in each of these congregations took it on themselves to ensure the students in these schools had faithful advocates looking out for their best interests. We believe that the academic achievement gap in U.S. public education can be closed in our lifetimes, but only if people of faith open their hearts, roll up their sleeves, and get to work on behalf of students."

The Fabulous Remixer Machine - a visual voice
Here's a cool tool to use to create visuals for your blogs, Tweets and FB posts. The intro says, "The Remixer Machine is a web app that aims to provide people with a visual voice, especially to those who might not consider themselves “arty” - or who don’t have the graphical tools to create.

It uses an SVG template that allows certain parts of the SVG to be modified. SVGs (Scalable Vector Graphics) describe an image by using markup language. This means that they provide the ability for someone to very simply change a discrete part of the image. In short, they provide the perfect scaffold for visual remixing." The link points to a collection of cards created using the app.
