Starting April 25 to July 3, the Microsoft Store is hosting their Giving Kids Tools for Tomorrow program. They have selected three organizations that are dedicated to providing a brighter future for children: FBLA-PBL, Scholarship America, and Boys Hope Girls Hope. Each can receive up to $100,000 in software. Each time a vote is cast for FBLA-PBL we will receive $5 worth of Microsoft software. Voting is easy! Just visit the program’s Facebook page at microsoftstore.com/givingkidstools or stop by a Microsoft Store near you. It is not necessary to make a purchase to vote. Just be sure to vote between April 25 and July 3 to support FBLA-PBL. Each person may only cast one vote. Help us show the power of FBLA-PBL!
DONATE NOW! Every chapter is asked to contribute, no matter how small, to the FBLA-PBL Disaster Relief Fund. Help our fellow FBLA-PBL family members in need. Individual members and advisers are of course welcome to donate as well. Your support will help schools and universities rebuild their chapters and, in some cases, cover travel expenses to the NLC in Orlando this summer.

The FBLA-PBL National Officers are seeking your help to assist those chapters impacted by the recent tornadoes and flooding that swept through the Midwest and Southern United States.
It’s estimated that 173 tornadoes touched down in 24 hours, a new record for a single storm system in modern times. The death toll has surpassed 300 and continues to rise as the recovery efforts for victims continues. Hundreds more were seriously injured. The twisters rampaged cities like Tuscaloosa, AL; left thousands homeless and more than a million people without power; and destroyed many schools.
Along the Mississippi River, levees have been breached and farmlands inundated by rising flood waters, as thousands of people have been forced from their homes.
“When disaster strikes, FBLA-PBL acts quickly to donate time, money, and resources to help support the needs of our chapters and their communities,” said Jean M. Buckley, President and CEO. “Our thoughts are with our students, advisers, and the residents of these communities and we hope our efforts will aid in the recovery.”
