Helping Orphans Around the World with BLANKIDS

By Isabelle Gilet

We hope that growing empathy in our students  will guide them throughout their lives.  In December, BLANKIDS , a Non-Profit organization, came to work with the Middle Schoolers to make blankets that were sent to orphaned children around the world.  We are proud to help our students move from concepts to tangible actions.   The assembly started with a short documentary about the work BLANKIDS does, and then we all got to work  making as many blankets as we could in 90 minutes!  We want to teach our students how to use their resources to have a positive impact, and this  activity taught them how to tie good knots in fabric and lend a helping hand to those in need.
