Using vacation time and personal leave, Blasing volunteered numerous hours traveling to elementary schools to teach children about dinosaurs and other prehistoric life. After visiting a school in San Antonio, he received a letter from a parent whose son was only 6 years old. The child had previously stated that he wanted to join a gang and drop out of school.  After attending Dinosaur Georges’ lecture he came home and announced that he wanted to do better in school so he could become a “Dinosaur Man” like Dinosaur George.  The impact of this letter caused Mr. Blasing to reevaluate his life’s priorities.  “If I can change one life by lecturing to children”, he said, “then I need to find a way to become more available to do so.”
