BENEFITING: American Red Cross

Kate Beal

THE STORY:

One of my first graders was born in Nepal and grew up there before she came to America. She expressed deep concern about the terrible earthquake and the damage it probably caused for everyone she knew and loved there. She didn't know if they were okay. So, the first graders of Room 4 at Cambridge Friends School decided to give some type of aid to the people of Nepal during this unimaginable time.  Since they couldn't go there and volunteer, children settled on making cards for them and donating money.

Two of the six Testimonies our Quaker school teaches are Stewardship and Community. Community may be self-explanatory, but children learn how to become active citizens by exercising what it means to contribute to our school community in positive, selfless and kind ways. Stewardship for us means the following: "We need to take care of the things we use and own as well as each other. We believe in leaving the world a better place than we found it." So, naturally they asked who was taking care of Nepal after this happened and I shared with them what Mr. Rogers once said, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” When they found out the American Red Cross organization was one of the helpers working to rescue people, give medical care and supplies and comfort those who were hurt and scared, children wanted to give the Red Cross "all our allowances!" We decided to do one better and share our goal to help Nepal. We are asking you to show kindness and Stewardship by giving your 'allowances', too. As one student said, "If it were me that it happened to, I bet they'd do the same thing to help and I'd want to know people cared about me." Our lofty goal was to raise $1000. After seeing your response, they decided to double it and now they've decided let your generosity determine the next amount :)  So, please share this web page with everyone you know and let's all show them how much we care!
