Support our fight for quality education for ALL children! Thanks for everything.

THE STORY:

The mission of the Show Me Campaign is to break the cycle of poverty using solutions that have been proven to improve people’s lives and to give them the opportunities to survive, thrive and succeed.

I wrote the song “Show Me” asking simple, honest questions about life, why there is so much suffering in the world, and what each of us can do about it. The Show Me Campaign takes its inspiration from the song and was launched so that people could get involved.

Believing that access to quality education is a civil right and that the current state of public education in the United States is a social injustice, John Legend’s Show Me Campaign aims to end educational inequality by spreading awareness about the issue and inspiring citizens to fight for every American child’s right to a quality public education.

The U.S. education system is failing to educate our country’s future leaders, but many schools have proven successful solutions. The Show Me Campaign supports increased adoption of these models so all children can attend great schools.

In Africa, Show Me works with Millennium Promise to provide clean water, health care, education and other basic tools that break the cycle of poverty.

Please join us and support the Show Me Campaign this holiday season.

"I believe equal rights to education is the civil rights issue of our time and we cannot stand idly by and allow this institutionalized inequality to continue." - John Legend

After reading Three Cups of Tea, I came to realize that it is a balanced education that can, in the long run, turn poverty into prosperity. Water, food, and shelter are the first step, but the only long term solution is the knowledge that can help lead these peoples to self betterment. Thank you for being such a great role model to the kids with your music and you mind. God bless. P.S. I don't know how this works, but if Mr. Legend is reading this, feel free to come back to Ohio State and have that talk you were planning, the one that ending up transforming into the opening act for Mr. President Obama. I was super excited to hear you speak! 3 years ago
