Just One Thing Challenge #8: Inspire the Children


This week’s challenge is help instill sense of awe in children about the ocean . Teaching our children about the ocean, creating passion and connections for it’s life, is one of the most important things we can do. Educating them about the mistakes we’ve made may prevent them from doing the same.

For this challenge I have picked two projects with Donor’s Choose. The total amount needed is just over $400. That’s about $10 a piece for everyone who has signed up. The first proposal is to provide funds for materials so students in a Kansas school can prepare for an Ocean Science Bowl Competition. The second proposal is to purchase books on the oceans for an elementary ESL class in Tennessee. I am very excited about us easily funding both of these!

  1. Great timing! I’m taking our 9 y.o. son down to FL this weekend for a week of manatees & fun in the Gulf.

  2. Just finished helping out with our regional Ocean Science Bowl. I have to say it was a blast and I was amazed at the kids knowledge, manners and good sportmanship. I’ll gladly pitch in to support that. Anyone who has a chance to help one of these events it is very refreshing and rewarding.
