My name is Pam Floyd-Johnson and I am a teacher at Redan Middle School in Lithonia, GA. Our school has began a campaign for a cancer patient at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. The name of the campaign is affectionately called "The Wig Bid" Quarters for Courtney. Courtney is a junior at a local high school who has had a relapse for the second time and needs a wig because of the chemotherapy. Our goal is to raise $900.00, which is a quarter from everyone in the school for 4 weeks. This would simply mean that we are asking everyone, all students and staff, to give $1.00.
My students that initiated the campaign are in a national organization called FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America). One of the goals of the organization is for the students/members to do community service. The members are educating the students and staff about the side effects of chemotherapy weekly on the school's news station. They also dedicated a bulletin board to the campaign, making posters and showing great support for a delicate situation. We are ending our campaign on November 14, 2008.
I am writing to you because Courtney's favorite musician is LUPE FIASCO...!
-Ms. Pam wrote to this blog thinking Lupe Fiasco was going to respond back to her, but I promised that I would put her letter on the blog as it is for a great cause. She also has high hopes that Lupe Fiasco, himself, will reach out to the young girl Courtney who uses his music as inspiration to get through her struggles with cancer. Hopefully this helps. I have the information for anybody who wants to reach out to Ms. Pam, and their campaign for Courtney. firstname.lastname@example.org
