Given Tuesday: The gift that keeps Given

Given Tuesday: The gift that keeps given

Christmas is around the corner and this year’s Given Tuesday was the perfect opportunity to start the Holiday season of giving. 
So on Tuesday, December 3rd  I taught the gift of sharing and knowledge to our students. I spoke to them about giving, compassion, empathy, charity, love and service. I showed them about children like them in Uganda and Mexico and other developing countries who can't go to school because they cannot afford it. Kids who are sick, hungry and are in need of food, clean water, clothes, shoes,  medicine and vaccines.

I shared with them my pictures of Uganda about from students from the Railaway school, answered questions  and afterward, I asked them to write down what they would give to these children in Uganda.   

We made a list on the board and later we made and colored a booklet for them to take home.  We learned new sight words and had a very good discussion about giving to others. 

 Our class ended with me distributing gloves, hats and coats to our all of our ELL students.

Also, today I started a new season of fundraising for the Shot@Life campaign.  Shot@Life is a campaign of the United Nations Foundation that educates, connects and empowers Americans to champion vaccines as one of the most cost-effective ways to save the lives of children in developing countries.
Can you help me this Holiday season to provide the gift of life and protection, for other children like these, from  deadly diseases - like polio, measles, pneumonia and diarrhea?  You can give a child the gift of life.  Donate here
