Remember my post about the Lutheran Malaria Initiative last fall? Our hallways were overtaken with mosquitos. Now - we're swimming in a sea of hearts! Every year, we pick a few different people or organizations to benefit from our weekly chapel offerings. For the past few months we've been collecting our chapel offerings for a former student and his family. He suffered a terrible fall off the side of a cliff last summer and his family is working hard to make his house handicap accessible.
For every $10 that is brought in we add a small heart to the wall. The students LOVE to see hearts being added each week. We're very close to reaching our goal of $6,000!
If you want to motivate your students and encourage them to meet a goal - show them their progress! They will most certainly rise to the occasion.
