BE INSPIRED TO DO A GOOD DEED
AND HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR URBAN MINORITY STUDENTS --
SUBJECTS FOR GETTING YOUR MONEY'S WORTH

 New York -- June 29, 2010 -- Brian Douglas makes a difference in the world, facing each day looking to do a good deed.

Segments will air on Time Warner Cable Channel 34/78 Sunday, July 4, at 8:30 a.m., airing at the same time on RCN 82 and VRZN 33, streaming live on www.mnn.org.

It's the little things that make Douglas feel good. Sometimes he helps with money, but lots of times it's finding a resource, helping with a stalled car or running an errand. He only asks that anyone who receives help, pay it back Forward. It all started when as a young man he ran away from home and a perfect stranger took him in off the street. His philosophy: "A lot of people doing small acts can make a big difference in the world." He is the author of DOING GOOD WORKS, website: www.doinggoodworks.com

Expectations for Skeeter's urban minority students at the Williamsburg Charter School in Brooklyn, NY, are college. He's helping close the achievement gap with "preparation, consistency and expectation". Classes start promptly on the clock. He's a drill sergeant running his classroom by the standard of SLANT, shorthand for Sit Up Straight, Listen, Ask and Answer Questions. This structured environment is the formula the Williamsburg School believes in. Their website: www.uncommonschools.org.
