Many of you know I've begun volunteer teaching at KidWorks, a local children's charity that serves at-risk youth in Santa Ana. In lieu of summer approaching, they are in desperate need of school supplies for its summer programs. I've got 1,000 followers on this blog and if each of you sent a $5 gift card from Walmart, Target, Amazon, etc. It would make a huge difference in these children's lives. I'm hoping to collect enough gift cards to go out and make the school supply purchases. I will post updates regarding how much was raised and how much stuff we were able to raise (together) for this program. Kid Works needs everything from notebooks, to calculators to graph paper! Please send the gift cards to this address: 1302 Industrial Drive Tustin California 92780 Thank you in advance! "One drop of water doesn't make a difference, but many drops of water creates a garden"
My first day at Kidworks KU program was this past Friday and I have to admit, my nerves were jittery all day in anticipation of my first-afternoon volunteer teaching. Would a bunch of 3rd through 5th graders eat me alive? Would I say something wrong and secure their place in therapy twenty years from now? What if they hate my course outline and/or despise me?! Little did I know, 12 kids were going to run the show...to find out more, click the blog title. PSA: KidWorks is looking for volunteers, if you live in Southern California - sign up and join me, today!
