I love this idea. I didn't read all the responses, so I might have missed it, but I didn't see anything about a "need basis," which I believe should be a requirement. Not that plenty of students don't deserve this period, but I think it always behooves us to help those who need the help the most. I would certainly support this initiative, and encourage those close to me to do so as well.
