Baltimore Lab School is a nonpublic special education school in Baltimore City that helps students with learning differences. Its arts-infused curriculum emphasizes experiential learning--education beyond the classroom. Essential components of its hands-on teaching philosophy are interactive field trips, outdoor education, and study abroad programs. There are some less fortunate students, however, that cannot afford some of these activities and, unfortunately, are not able to participate in these multidisciplinary learning opportunities. This is where DragonAid comes in to help.

He volunteered in the playroom at Sinai, where he was treated as a toddler, to earn community service hours. The video below describes his project to collect toys and videos for the playroom at Sinai Children's Hospital.
