    Showing up for teachers at moments big and small

    Day 353

    There When You Need It

    You know those things that you never really think about until you really need them? Things like socks. Stamps. Envelopes. Paper towels. They’re not very exciting…but when you’re searching for that matching pair of socks in the morning and coming up short, there’s nothing in that moment you need more.

    For the teachers of Misiera primary school, that missing thing was tape and glue.

    They wanted to do arts and crafts with their students. But whenever they set out to get creative, they were limited with the tools to cut and paste.

    It was clear that for these teachers, tape and glue were sort of like those matching socks – not there when you really need them. Luckily for us, we could step right in.

    We supplied some glue, wood glue, and tape to these crafty teachers.

    Don’t you wish someone could sweep in, just in the nick of time, when you can’t find that pesky stamp? Or paper towel? That one matching green sock…? Today, we could be those people for the teachers of Misiera – so that next time, they have all the things they need, right then.
