Being Charitable

The Obamas have given a gift of $10,000 to the Mosaic Youth Theater of Detroit. In such an incredibly difficult time for the parents of many young people in Detroit, where the unemployment rate is 50%, I was particularly warmed by this gift.

Some years back I worked as a consultant for the City of Detroit, developing youth programs for the recreation centers throughout the City. Besides tutorial sessions, many of the programs included music and drama. The director of the program was a great supporter of Mosaic and I came to love this group through her dedicated support.

Thank you Mr. President and First Lady Michelle.
