We are so excited to share with you our second annual Compassion Project with Meghan Free’s students at Mammoth Heights Elementary School. Ms. Free is the sister of Teen with a Dream’s, Executive Assistant and Social Media Marketer, Kati. Meghan has been a Dream Team Member for years and strives to incorporate compassion within her classroom, and inspire students to show compassion within their own lives.
The Compassion Project is designed to connect students within the community with pediatric cancer patients. It is branched off of our signature Chemo-Day-Care-Bag Drop program. These Compassion Bags are designed to engage the patients mind and spirit during their 8-10 hours of treatment, that occurs on average 3-4 times a week.
Each student was assigned an age and sex of a patient. For nearly an entire school semester Ms. Free’s class has dedicated themselves to learning about, embracing and engaging in the concept of COMPASSION.
These students went above and beyond creating their #2014CompassionBags! From handmade sock monkeys to activity books, each bag was filled with compassion and care. Each student completed their bag with a hand written letter to further the connection between themselves and the patient even more!
Take a look at the astounding bags that the students created:
THANK YOU MS. FREE’S CLASS FOR YOUR COMPASSION, HARD WORK AND JOING OUR FIGHT AGAINST PEDIATRIC CANCER-UNTIL THERE IS A CURE!
