Warm Wishes: They Need To Know Someone Cares

Posted on November 04, 2015 by 53989290 | 1 comment
Warm Wishes... is something I heard tonight during our Terrarium Class. I taught a group of teachers how to make a terrarium by using a container  that could be upcycled.  One of the reasons we do this class is to encourage our community to relove something and give it a new purpose versus tossing it in the landfill.

They are the ones that work with students  grades 7-12 that have a need for an alternative program due to life situations and discipline issues.  Children that live on the cusp, and may not have been afforded a pleasant childhood. I commend these four ladies and others like them that truly care for their students. This class tonight was a Christmas gift from one of the teachers to other three.  " I wanted to give them something fun and creative; something we could all do together."  It was very well received. One of them mentioned about how relaxing it was, and a great way to end an otherwise stressful day. As they continued to chat, I overheard one of them repeat they were asked what the teachers wanted for Christmas. She simply stated "We don't need anything, we have enough stuff."  and continued with " These kids, they don't have much, take that money and buy them some gloves and scarves."  They all shared how most of their students walk to school and have little parental support if any at all.  It's going to be cold in December and they need to know people care about them. Mother Teresa Quote Wandering Thistle Studio I began to ask questions, as I normally do. Discovered they have a coat closet and have plenty of coats. But are in need of hats, scarves, gloves and belts.  They enlightened me about the school dress code with shirts being tucked in and teh requirement to wear belts. "These kids can't afford belts." The teachers would like  for these teenagers to have "Warm Wishes" for Christmas. I have decided to begin a campaign for these kids. So I will ask you to join me, if you care to do so, and donate by sending a pair of gloves or a warm beanie to the "Warm Wishes"  campaign.  If interested you can send them to my Studio at Wandering Thistle Studio 643 Harwood Rd., Bedford, TX 76021. We will collect through the 2nd week of December. Or donate to an alternative school in your area. I know they would appreciate the warm wishes. Thank you for reading and sharing with your friends.  And as always, Wander, Explore, Create. Enjoy. ~ TheresaTheresa Wandering Thistle Studio 1459x1469
