Friends of Makeda - a small RAK...

Preview

*FRIENDS OF MAKEDA*
(a small Random Act of Kindness)

have you ever been touched so deeply by the loving-kindness of another that all you wanted to do was pass it on? Well, let us sit down and reason for a moment...

Several years ago, when my daughter started her preschool experience, our lives were forever touched by the most special of angels and undeniably, the most dedicated teacher I have ever met in this lifetime...her speech and language therapist, Mrs. H. Some of you who are frequent visitors of my Necessary Room might recall me discussing her here. For any parent seeking educational support for a child who requires "special needs assistance," I only pray you can find the support of a teacher like this.

In just a few months (May 2011), Mrs. H. is going to retire from decades of teaching her small preschool classroom, which is comprised primarily of children who have speech and language challenges. Significant financial contraints in the state's public education budget have not deterred her from weaving her magic, using a holistic approach to nurture these children and help them all realise their individual strengths. Needless to say, i simply adore her!

So I got this idea...before Mrs. H. leaves her classroom in May, I thought I would call upon you to help me with performing a small random act of kindness. To provide the children in her classroom some perspective about the global connectedness of humankind, and as a gesture of loving-kindness, would you please join me in sending the class a postcard from your corner of the world? They will track each postcard's point of origin on a world map kept in the classroom. At the end of the school year, the postcards will be evenly distributed to the children as a keepsake from their classroom experience with Mrs. H. It's sure to provide them something to talk about ;)

If you'd like to join me in sending these preschool children a *Friends of Makeda* postcard, please email me at necessaryroom@gmail.com and I will gladly provide you their mailing address. Please note that I have Mrs. H's permission to do this.  She would like to thank you in advance for your thoughtfulness.

All *Friends of Makeda* postcards should be mailed on
or before May 2, 2011, Teacher Appreciation Day.

As always, thank you!
One love, Se'lah.

Coming to you from Joanna´s place. I´d love to send your child´s teacher that card. I think this is such a good idea. My daughter is a Pre school teacher, so I can relate.
I´m from Paraguay, so I´m sure they will learn something new when they place that dot on the map.
Could you send me that mailing address?
