PHELPS HONORS IMMIGRANTS

Rate this Entry

Maybe Michael Phelps is not an immigrant, but I did want to take note that the greatest Olympian in history is doing something good for his country beyond bringing Olympic glory. He's lent his name to We Are Ellis Island, a charity that is helping to restore a cornerstone in the nation's immigration history. Here's the organization's description of what it seeks to accomplish:



Sometimes called Ellis Island's "forgotten side," nearly 30 hauntingly
beautiful buildings on the Island's South Side have been vacant,
shuttered, and unseen by the public for well over a half a century.
These are the former buildings where immigrants in need of medical
attention received care. The buildings are in dire need of repair and your help. Save Ellis Island, Inc. has joined the National Park
Service to raise funds to rescue and reuse these buildings.



Here's the commercial featuring Michael and his telling what immigration has meant to him:
