Each quarter, contributes 10% of income derived from our Amazon affiliate relationship to a charity.  You can support these efforts by purchasing from, and using the links on any of our pages.  For the first quarter of 2016, we received $3,789.07 from related sales, and forwarded $379.00 to the Flint Child Health & Development Fund, which helps deal with the aftermath of the lead poisoning caused by our Governor's actions.

For the second quarter of 2016, we will be contributing to the Detroit College Promise Scholarship Fund at the Detroit Public School Foundation. sponsored the Detroit College Promise from its inception in 2008 until July 2015, when it merged this program into the DPS Foundation, to assure long term stability and greater capacity to award scholarships.  For the 2015-16 college academic year, we awarded 183 scholarships.  We are pleased that for the 2016-17 college academic year, almost 1000 students have applied for scholarships, reflecting the great work done by the DPS Foundation staff.  For that reason, it is especially important that all who support public education support these efforts.  Besides purchasing from (using our links), you can donate specifically to this effort by clicking here.  For questions, contact Dr. Pernick at or the DPS Foundation at (313) 873-3348.
