Here's how we're taking action in our community:
My class is reading the book Wonder and learning about kids with craniofacial abnormalities. We have decided to make a donation and try to "adopt a face" with the children's craniofacial association (www.ccakids.org). So far, we have had monetary donations (as much as $50 from one family!) and Melissa and Audrey in my class asked if we could put posters up around the school to raise awareness and ask for donations. I would love for all participants to be recognized and am still looking for 100% class participation to be a Muir Ripple Class!
Participants thus far:
Kimberly Aguilar - poster and $

Raised $108 so far....and still bringing awareness to campus
One of the coolest things that happened during my project was:
The kids made the most beautiful posters and truly have hearts filled with compassion for these kids with craniofacial differences.
One of the most important things I learned was:
We are all alike - don't judge a person by his/her looks, get to know their heart!
