Gifts From Guardians

A Peacemaking Project by Olivia M.

What is the injustice we are solving?

Gifts From Guardians was a project I lead in my school''s leadership class. We had a drive where our school donated toilitry items (i.e. pads, tampons, tooth paste, tooth brushes, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc.) and we put them in every draw string bag that was donated to us and we're going to give them to Guardian ad litem, an advocacy group for abused children. The rest of the toilitries goes to Lakeland Baptist Homes, our local orphanage. Our goal was 2,000 bags. We only filled 45. And we don't have many leftovers. We would love to have money or donation's for more drawstring bags and toilitry items. I don't personally have any picture's of videos, but if would like them please email me for further information!

Hi Olivia! Thanks for posting this project. Really impressed by your leadership and your compassion for young people in need. As you're thinking about the next steps of your project, I'm wondering if you've been having conversations with young people in the Guardian Ad Litem system to understand what they need most. I think those conversations will be helpful as you find your path forward!

The next step (to make you eligible for our grant funding!) is for you to turn your ideas into a Compassionate Insight. Sharing your insight by Feb 28th makes you eligible for some awesome opportunities, including (once you've completed your project) the ability to apply for a free trip to the Peace First Accelerator Conference. You can do that on your project dashboard!

Let us know how we can help!
