New Super Heroes ready to do some good

April 6, 2010 at 3:39 pm Leave a comment

This Thursday Mindy and I will kick-off of the new session of Real-World Super Heroes. We’ll take to the streets with a whole new group of kids. Many of our previous sessions included repeat Heroes but as they start to age out of the program, some eager kindergarteners are taking their places. We hope our past Heroes continue to use their powers for good around the neighborhood and we welcome our rookies!

This week, our new recruits will be briefed on the super powers everyone has to make the world a better place: time, talent and treasure. Our philanthropy framework follows the one established by learningtogive.org. We are again working with donorschoose.org to provide the kids with a $100 gift certificate to show just how big (and concrete) of an impact “treasure” can have. 

We look forward to sharing some of our favorite projects with a whole new group of kids this spring, and sharing with all of you how it all goes.  Know any Upper West Side NYC non-profits that can put our kids to work on a project? We love off-sites!Have ideas for a hands-on project that can be done in the classroom?  We do those too! Share your ideas with a comment here or email me at munsellnyc@yahoo.com.

PS – To buy an adorable cape like the one in the picture, visit Cutie Pa Tutus.  Feeling crafty? Check out these DIY directions.
