May 5th is Give Local Day.
How does that relate to helping Winter Camps in the Himalayas?
Last year, one young boy from the Canadian Rockies recognised his shin guards in a picture of a Ladakhi child.
"Wow...." as only an 8 year old can express making a connection with a place half way 'round the world.
What if we motivated our young people to put a barrel out? To go on the radio and talk about what they're doing? To blog about it?
To share and feel that "wow"?
Since 2006 we've been using hockey, technology and inquiry based learning to help Ladakhi kids get the "wow factor". May 5th is your chance to help too!
Barrel + sign in your school or rec centre. And we'll be telling you where to send the donations in June.
Cynthia will be blogging as she works with our Himalayan projects this year.
