Call from Mike DeMazza

I got a call this morning from Mike Demazza from the Houstatonic Valley Regional High School, who said he heard about Brtt's project through sandy and wanted to know more about it. When I told him about it, he told me that his high school group raises money for water related issues and that they were going to send Brett a check for $365, a dollar for each day of the year.
He told me that he started the group at the high school about 5 years ago, after reading an article in Time magazine about Lifestraw.

The Luau

Brett stayed at the table selling straws and telling people about Lifestraws for four hours with a few breaks here and there to check things out at the Luau. When he stepped away, Skylar would take his place. People were impressed by his presentation and his "salesmanship" qualities. By the end, he was walking around peddling them to anyone who would listen to him.

She said "yes"

On Monday, Mrs. Goodman told him that he could set up a table at the school Luau to sell crazy straws, which the school ordered. And, that he could make a poster to hang up in school.
We had an extra poster board from Skylar's project, so he chose pictures and information from the internet and glued them all on to make a poster.
