BENEFITING: Humane Education Advocates Reaching Teachers
I have decided to spend my summer going to bed early and waking up before the sun comes up so I can train for the Chicago marathon on October 13! And I'm not just doing this for the pain and wear and tear on my body- I'm doing it to raise money for one of the greatest organizations I've learned about in recent years. HEART (teachhumane.org) is an organization whose mission it is "to foster compassion and respect for all living beings and the environment by educating youth and teachers in Humane Education". The go into schools and education children and have teacher education programs as well on how to incorporate some of these lessons into their curriculum.
