Random Acts of Kindness followed a week dedicated to spreading cheer and joy at Kelsey’s School. Then we were humbled with gratitude and our community’s support for Kindness for a Cure. Kelsey lives in a community where she and another student suffer from a rare disease. This year, one dedicated secretary (with the support of all around her) committed to supporting our local non-profit organizations for a school-wide fundraiser. Wow. The letter that went home is below:
One School’s Kindness for a Cure
February 10, 2020
In coordination with the Great Kindness Challenge, students, staff, and families raise funds for special causes each year. This year, our school will raise funds and awareness for two rare conditions that affect two very special students in our district. We will donate all the funds collected to the Shwachman Diamond Syndrome Foundation and Kelsey’s Kaleidoscope, Inc. Each organization will receive 50% of the funds.

Many of you may not be aware of these conditions and how they impact two local families, so we wanted to bring more awareness and attention to the rare conditions affecting Kelsey, a third-grade student, and Maggie, a fourth-grade student in our district.
We ask that families who want to donate coins, have their child bring them in a disposable container or baggie. Anyone who wants to donate via check, can do so by sending in a check written to either organization listed above. Donations can also be made online using the links above.
Our School is proud of the awareness we bring to our families and hope this fundraising effort can assist in bringing more attention and a possible cure to Kelsey, Maggie and all of those affected by these illnesses.
Thank you! (All!)
We are blessed and grateful for this initiative of kindness.
