Eugene Area School Produces Music Video for Buyijja Fundraiser

As part of a leadership unit in the 4th/5th classrooms of Twin Oaks Elementary, students have undertaken a fundraising campaign to raise money for school supplies, books and shoes for the Buyijja Village School in rural Uganda, Africa.

The fundraising began with a promotional music video, written and produced by Patric Miller, and performed by the students of Debbie Miller’s 4th/5th class. Featuring a short history, as well as video clips from the village and school in Buyijja, the message of Peace, Hope, and Love as answers to improving conditions and opportunity are portrayed.

Mrs. Miller’s Favorite Quotes:

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtfully committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”— Margaret Mead

“If your plan is for one year, plant rice. If your plan is for ten years, plant trees. If your plan is for a hundred years, EDUCATE CHILDREN.” –Confuscious

 

When Mrs. Miller’s class became aware of the Village School in Buyijja through Maddy's internship there in the Spring of 2014, they were involved in a variety of fundraising project, not the least of which was building playground equipment for the children.

As a reward and motivator for their hard work, Patric produced a music video with the class. The song they chose to sing, “Put a Little Love in Your Heart,” became the theme of the project. Patric was pleased to produce the music, and the video, as it captured the moment that they made the connection to “helping your fellow man.”
