Dear Broad Meadows Operation Days Work Members,
I just received your list of wishes from Mr. Adams and I want to let you know that the Good People Fund will happily underwrite EVERYTHING that was on your list! We are so impressed with the work that you do. Each and every one of you is making a difference in the most profound way possible. The lessons that you learn in your ODW involvement will stay with you for the rest of your life. I can guarantee you that you will never forget this experience and that it will guide you as you go through school and then out into "the real world".
I hope to be able to visit with you one day and also to "observe" your meetings now that you will have a camera and SKYPE! I will arrange to set up a time to "visit" with Mr. Adams right after the school break.
Enjoy your new tools and save the world!
Since first meeting their inspiration, Iqbal Masih, a young Pakistani child activist in 1994, generations of middle school students at the Broad Meadows Middle School in Quincy, MA. have been involved in converting their idealism-into-action through annual student voted, student funded partnerships with established organizations devoted to ending child slavery, poverty and the exploitation of kids. Though they work under the gentle guidance of a dedicated teacher, Ron Adams, it is the kids themselves that do the work and make the decisions. This year, their efforts will focus on children in Nepal where the literacy rate is one of the lowest in the world, only 35% for girls.
So – with the Good People Fund’s investment of a few hundred dollars, the Quincy kids will have a webcam, poster board, crayons, markers, pens, notebooks and even some pretzels and other treats for their after-school meetings…all tools they will use to change the world.
