Did you know that last year’s team of Kinderkids donated over 100 teddy bears to the Altoona Hospital’s Pediatric Unit? We started collecting teddy bears at the beginning of February and by the end of the month we had 100 bears to donate. Each teddy bear was labeled with a “Get Well Soon” tag from our classroom. The hospital gave each child that had to sleep overnight a teddy bear to make their stay a little more comfortable. Some of the patients even sent us thank you cards and pictures after they received one of our bears.
I thought that it would be a great idea for our team to do something for kids that need our help. I just haven’t been able to decide what we should do. So I need your help! There are children everywhere that need help, can you and your family think of any way we could help them? What would you like to collect and send to those in need? Maybe your mom and dad could help you look for ideas on the internet, on the news, or even in the newspaper. After we have all of our ideas posted on our blog, we will be able to vote on our favorite idea and put it into action! I can’t wait to hear what all of the KinderKids have to say! I am sure that we will have so many great ideas! Thanks for posting!!
