Learning For a Cause

May 6th was World Kids Colouring Day - an activity sponsored by Staedtler in support of Save the Children. Save the Children is the World's largest independent child's rights organization working with children in more than 100 countries. Nearly 30 Learning for a Cause Project students from Lester B. Pearson High School in Montreal North went to nearby Gerald McShane Elementary School and partnered with a Grade 1 student to produce art in support of the charity. More than $125 was raised during the one hour mass colouring event. Learning for a Cause initiated the project in association with Gerald McShane as part of its 2009 "Raising Humanity" project and anthology. The event was a huge success and the two groups are already looking forward to working together for a cause again soon!
