Teach­ing With Heart

Reader's Digest Asia Pacific - - News Worth Sharing -

Akind and anony­mous teacher in the US has kicked off a thought­ful move­ment to help stu­dents in need. Her proud hus­band posted an in­spir­ing pho­to­graph and story on Red­dit show­ing how his kinder­garten-teacher wife cre­ated a ‘com­fort closet’ for kids from kinder­garten to Year 8. Items such as soap, de­odor­ant and tooth­paste as well as cloth­ing are free to take for those in need. The spe­cial space was cre­ated from com­mu­nity do­na­tions and even school chil­dren buy­ing items with their own money to help fel­low stu­dents liv­ing in low-in­come fam­i­lies. This so­cial me­dia post has in­spired oth­ers, with some schools cre­at­ing ‘share ta­bles’ where kids can drop off any food or drink they don’t use that day.
