"We are happy to announce that Northwest High School's Be More Kind club (that has been meeting virtually every other Wednesday this school year) is in a grant contest to help fund activities for next year through the Lansing based EpifanyNOW program!

Every dollar donated on the site for them is a vote. AND the club gets to keep all of the dollars that are donated to their club as well!


Please help spread the word so they can make some of their projects a reality next year!"
