my aunt trish lives and teaches in philadelphia. she is amazing and loves her kids more than ANYTHING! i know that because of her, these kids will make something out of themselves.
at christmas, she asks businesses to sponsor kids and sometimes the whole family. these kids have nothing. no-they have less than nothing. most are living with a grandparent because even the mom isn't able to take are of them. none of them have a stable homelife. she makes sure each child has a christmas.
and that is just at christmas time. she brings them lunches and buys them socks. no matter what these kids do in life, they know that mrs. vadden is on their side.
back to the photo...
it is almost valentine's day...in my mind anyhow. i got this idea for the cards for my aunt to give her class from brown paper packages. this is an adorable blog! please roam around and see what other great things she has going on!
i did make mine a little different but i pretty much stayed the same as hers. i'm pathetic.
i did put magnets on the back of each clothes pin so the kids would be able to display their art on their fridge at home. each has their name on it, so they can be proud of what they have done.
