Thanks for clicking through. There are many worthy charitable organizations that I contribute to; however, this particular organization is the one I feel the most strongly deserves donations. I am a firm believer in public education. I am a public school teacher in Connecticut. CEF exists solely to provide support to public school students, teachers, and aspiring educators here in Connecticut. There is no administrative overhead, and it is the teachers who identify the need for students or colleagues who may be in crisis of some kind. Past examples include expensive medication for a student whose parents were between health insurance, funds for a family who had a house fire to cover immediate living costs, warm winter coats/clothes for a family -- all very real needs met by this fund.
Please consider even a small donation -- or a LARGE one.... Any amount is appreciated. You can donate here online or send a check to: CEF, 21 Oak St., Ste 500, Hartford, CT 06106. Just mention my name in your notes.

Thank you all so very much. We are always Stronger Together.
