Unfortunately my friend Karen and her husband Ralph are unable to join us to celebrate our special day. Karen was thoughtful enough to do an act of kindness and share her story with us. Thanks to her generosity, another teacher will get to use a fantastic mental health resource with their class next year. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of so many children!
Act of Kindness Story submitted by Karen Leniczek:
I have made a money donation to Child & Youth to purchase a Friends Resilience program (a mental health initiative) to be used in an elementary classroom in Regina. It is a social and emotional learning program to help give students coping skills when dealing with adversity. It is a play-based training program for building resilience, to help children cope with feelings of fear, worry and sadness and give them strategies that they can continue to use in the future. Last school year, I was given the opportunity with our school counselor to use this program in my classroom. I wish to give another teacher the opportunity to use this resource in their classroom to help other students and to improve mental health for all.
