|Positive Message Boards for CAM 2018|
Editor's Note: We checked in with Atholton High School student, Sarah Fishkind, to update us about her school's Kindness Club. Sarah lives in Columbia, Maryland. She learned about CCA because she was born with bicoronal craniosynostosis and attended the recent Annual Retreat in Reston, Virginia. CCA Kids Blog covered the Kindness club in January 2018. I wanted to know what they had been up to during the last year. We were happy to hear that the club is still going strong, doing good, and raising awareness. Without further ado, here is what Sarah's kindness club did in 2018.
Over the past year, my club has been focusing on raising awareness for craniofacial conditions. We celebrated September as Craniofacial Acceptance Month, and hung up posters all around the school! Check out the pictures below. We also had weekly announcements with either quotes or inspiring messages teaching the school about craniofacial conditions. We have written a bunch of letters to children with these conditions that are either bullied or just want some letters of encouragement! This year, we also created some “well wish chains” that we sent to Cranio Care Bears, for them to send in their packages when children have surgery. We had one meeting where we Skyped and spoke to Peter Dankelson.
We raised money for CCA with a bracelet fundraiser in 2018. We created string bracelets and sold them during lunch. We plan on doing a T-shirt fundraiser soon. The orders should be in for the next meeting.
