To begin I am a part of community that has experienced many changes. And those changes has not only effected us as adults, it has effected our children as well. Many are probably not aware of a place called Mileston Ms. As it does not have its own zip code or postal service. Yet it is a place where for many decades a great number of youth have strived to perfect themselves. It is also a community icon, in so many positive aspects.

 For many years we had our own very school, known as Mileston Elementary, which once went all the way to twelfth grade. Until it was taken from us, by the hands of a former student who was angry that he didn't graduate that year. That was during the early seventies, and at that time I was around the early age of around seven. About a year or so later our school was rebuilt, yet only designed to go to the eighth grade.

After graduation from our school, we had to attend another school now known as S.V. Marshall, to complete our schooling. The reason I am doing this fund raiser is because we need a facility here that will help in developing the minds of our youth. An activity center that will allow them access to better themselves in today's society. Seeing there is not much here, for our youth, I am not ashame to say we don't even a community store. May I also state the fact that we have no school here now? Yes! It is true, as the one mentioned that was rebuilt, known as Mileston Elementary, has been officially closed for more than two years now; due to some sort of consolidation. And so our children here, have no kind of learning or activity center that they can attend, to further the development of their minds as youths. My goal and idea is to build a place that is like a recreational facility, that will have a learning room that teaches about various cultures and its people from around the globe. And prepare them on how to reach success in a constant changing world and environment. A facility that will also have a computer room, so that the children can perhaps do their home work; seeing that many here, do not have access to internet services. An activity room that teaches both boys and girls how to draw, sew, cook and prehaps learn how to play chess. A place that can help them developed their ideas and reach long term goals, thus helping to better the world in which we all live. Lastly, just a place where children can feel good about going to, a place for after school or summer school activities. Such as basketball, a place they can learn a new sports, such as Tennis or maybe even soccer. And with your help if I can developed such a place, it can later on be expanded, so that it will Serve to have it's very own daycare. For many parents here can not afford to pay for child care.  My dream is to have a place that will one day have its own indoor swimming pool and Exercising room, so forth and so on. Anyone who donate will be greatly appreciated and will be given any and all updates as to this ongoing development. A 100,000 is not a lot of money, but it's a start to perhaps get a facility for a community that is in poverty and needs the concerns of people who has been fortunate or blessed to better themselves. Personally I see the needs of the children as I myself live here and I just way to make a difference in my community. This world is changing daily, and we must all unite to help ourselves and the minds of our children.  After all everyone who took time in reading this was indeed once a child themselves..... Peace, love and blessing to all who give to help this cause...... Email me with any questions or concerns at thank you....
