What a successful first day to write about... I seriously can not think Ms. Sue Karcher, Ms. Jessica Gitlan, Mr. Scott & Mrs. Betsy Thomason, Bounce N Giggles and Ms. Jamie Shrum enough, for their support and generosity in sponsoring a sign. Our display of both sponsored signed and hand crafted messages (BE KIND) turned out beautifully in front of the high school and we couldn't have ask for it to look any better! Did you see it? What did you think?!
Tonight was also a girls varsity home softball game, against PK Young. The lady Indians rocked the game and defeated the blue wave 15 - 5. After the game, we were able to distribute gatorade bottles, to ALL the players from both teams. Attached to the bottles were our "We Will Rise" cards with different encouraging messages, hand written on the back. What a fun time we had, cheering on our home team and do what we love to do... share our love for giving with our youth!
Over the past few weeks, we've been challenging our students through Project Instagram to consider taking our RAOK challenge. Of those interested, we selected 5 students who all received an envelope this morning at school, with $5 cash and some "We Will Rise" cards, to bless someone they don't know, with RAOK. They have until Friday to complete the challenge and share their experience with us to earn a prize for their participation.
Of all the challenges I've given in the past, this is the one I'm most excited about because I know how much potential it possesses. If you're a praying person, please join me in praying for these 5 students, and ask that God shows up in a BIG WAY for them, this week. I CAN NOT wait to read and share their stories with you all so stay tuned!
