Watch it. Watch the others too. Seriously, I don't post this stuff for my own health, you know.
Accepting his 2008 TED Prize, author Dave Eggers asks the TED community to personally, creatively engage with local public schools. With spellbinding eagerness, he talks about how his 826 Valencia tutoring center inspired others around the world to open their own volunteer-driven, wildly creative writing labs. But you don't need to go that far, he reminds us -- it's as simple as asking a teacher "How can I help?" He asks that we share our own volunteering stories at his new website, Once Upon a School.

A pirate-supply store is perhaps not the most effective way to get people to trust you to tutor their kids. But I approve anyway.
