Kids in Need Foundation
March 19, 2012

What a fantastic experience this has been. Having written my first grant and being graciously awarded a Kids in Need Grant, I have since become adicted to applying for them. This particular grant has been very helpful for my students. Through reading Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer, and working on their subsequent people watching project (due to the generous funds donated to us), they were able to see the world through different, less judgemental eyes. They learned that performing random acts of kindness really does make the world a better place. Many of my students still volunteer at local soup kitchens among other non-profit organizations and perform good deeds to this day, months after the unit has finished. Their compassion for others is permanently changed for the better. . . all thanks to you!

I was so excited to be a recipient for a grant. I was able to really shop around and get a lot of books and materials and even technology for my classroom. The students LOVED their projects (of writing children's stories) and the second graders who received the stories were even happier! Thank you so much for chosing my project to support. I am ever so thankful.
