"with all their hearts" students looking to support COVID patients online

    Hello everyone,

    I have a small international class of 5th graders in Kuwait who have drafted well wishes and artwork to support COVID patients.  Does anyone know any online group they could send those to?  Or perhaps individual patients in a particular hospital?  It would mean so much to the students.

    Thanks so much!

    Alison

    This is wonderful!  I may be able to find someone in our bilingualism project in Colombia that could share them with people there in the hospital or those recovering at home.  thanks, Daniel

    Hello Daniel,

    That would be wonderful.  It would mean the world to these children to send the artwork and well wishes to anyone who could benefit from them.  Perhaps we could get a reply from the recipients and have a bit of dialog between them.  There are 4 students, 3 of them are Turkish and one is Jamaican and their school is in Kuwait.  The school is based on service learning so the kids are trying to serve those in need with uplifting drawings and messages.  Their authenticity makes them really charming.

    I am sorry I did not see your message before as it went to an email I rarely see.  Please feel free to reply here or on my gmail below. So happy to hear from you!!  We could perhaps think of other ways to collaborate too learning language through service.
    Cheers, Alison
