This week, we want to help change the lives of the children at Doull Elementary School in Denver, Colorado. I first heard about these children after reading a story about their teacher that broke my heart.
Kyle Swartz is a third grade teacher at the school. 90% of children there live near or below the poverty line. One day, Kyle asked her students to fill in the blank in this sentence: “I wish my teacher knew _______.”
This is what some of the children wrote....
I contacted Kyle to see if there’s anything 52 Lives could do for her students. She said they are in desperate need of warm coats and jumpers. The Colorado winters are freezing and a lot of the children don’t have proper clothes to keep them warm.
They need 53 jumpers and coats in total - and we want to buy them all!
