Bad For You: Exposing the War on Fun releases tomorrow (!) and here’s the trailer. Feel free the share the video and spread the panic!

Their school was closed for 8 months last year after Hurricane Sandy filled it with two feet of water. Eloise and I, under the auspices of Young Audiences, will be helping the students process and […]
