How many babies does it take to break a mommy?
One of the best things about public school in Dallas? All the cultural arts experiences and field trips my kids and their school friends get to participate in thanks to a big behind-the-scenes group called Big Thought. As you can see by this picture of us at the zoo, field trips can be fun, fun, fun! But, seriously, I ENDURE them, because I know that my kids (and my extra little friends for the day, Luis and Alejo) will be enriched by being exposed to things like plays, zoos, museums, galleries, and music.
If you're in DFW schools, your kids have more than likely benefitted from Big Thought and you probably didn't even know it. They help fund, create, and execute theater, art, music, dance, after-school programs, summer camps, and other creative thinking and doing experiences for kids all over this area.
Free kids events: Those of you with kids can experience Big Thought at Dallas Public Libraries all over the city at their Library Live! events. See a calendar here, and go experience a FREE event with Big Thought artists who present interactive, education and culture-based literacy activities for children and their families through music, dance, storytelling and visual art. Find out about Big Thought's Thriving Minds FREE after-school enrichment program and fun summer camps.
This month, I've been given the chance to speak on Big Thought's behalf to my blog readers, Facebook likers, and Twitter Followers because Big Thought has the opportunity to win $50,000 in funding from the local DFW Cadillac Dealers Group. And I wanted to ask y'all if you'd take one minute to help them win this funding. The charity with the most votes by Monday May 9th wins! Here's how to do it:
Go to the DFW Metroplex Cadillac Dealers Group Facebook page.
Click thru and vote for Big Thought.
You can vote once a day even. I'm trying to remember to do it, because they've given all the kids I know and love so much. Thank y'all for your help.
