We had our first visit of the year in November with the pre-kindergarten class of High Plains Elementary. Nick read his book, “Helping in Action” and shared a bit of his life story growing up in Ethiopia and shared about the unique story of how he had a pet lion!
Kids were in awe. A pet lion?
So many questions. How can we bring similarities and differences into a classroom where some may have not met a man that grew up in Ethiopia, or had a lion as a pet, but have had similar favorite colors and animals? It is an experience that is priceless for young ones to acknowledge — the beauty of differences and the beauty of similarities.
We were so excited to be invited by friend and fabulous teacher, Jessica Soulek!
Thank you, Jessica, for your support and encouragement. We enjoyed our time with you and your students!
Do you have extra change JINGLING in your pocket?
check out those bells!
Feel like using it to give a GIFT that keeps on giving?
It would be considered an EAR-ly Christmas present!
Donations would make us TWINKLE from our little tiny elf heads to our toes!
Any small amount can help us reach our goal of $500 this Tuesday. (hey… who you calling small?!)
So far, these lovely photos, from JLV Photography in Fort Collins, are our first GIFT!
Thank you to James and Mellisa for GIVING to Awesome in Action this season. …It was ELF-LY SWEET of you! (Oh yeah, we did use that horrible elf pun)
The money will help spread the JOY of feeling accepted and included to ALL types of people (and elves) this year!
