A Mission To Improve Education For Kids
UDA Star Foundation

The UDA Star Foundation is dedicated to providing proper education tools for students. With multiple projects, this foundation has already improved the education experience for thousands of students.

Mt. Readmore is one of their current projects that provides schools with Kindles. Students are able to check these Kindles out like a library book, but the Kindles contain 10-20 books selected by media center specialists, which means students are checking out a mini-library at one time. With technology expanding and improving as fast as it is, it's necessary to update technology in the classroom, as well. This project allows schools to do just that. Students are given the chance to have a variety of books at their fingertips, not only giving them an opportunity to read more but the desire to read more. The foundation has donated 100 Kindles since 2014 and are working to provide more.

The second project is called A Desk of My Own. This project provides students with their own personal desk in their bedroom. To get their own desk, students must write their principal a letter on why they want their own desk in their room at home. Through A Desk of My Own, students are given the opportunity to have a space in their room designed specifically for schoolwork. With their own personal desk, they have a distraction-free environment that teaches them to be responsible and independent with their schoolwork. The UDA Star Foundation has provided desks to 97 students since 2014 and is hoping to donate 100 more in 2016.

Both of these projects are dedicated to improving the learning environments for elementary and middle-level students. Thousands of students have benefited from the UDA Star Foundation since 2014, and their efforts are expanding each year. You can support these efforts by tuning in to a 24-hour charity stream hosted by Zach Tolle on March 18 beginning at noon. A donation button will be available on the stream, and any donations will be greatly appreciated.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

Trip to The City of Dreams

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
