Well, it must be Tuesday because we just collected another donation from a generous 4th grade class today! This is the fourth consecutive Tuesday that has us sharing the results of kindness pouring into our project. Boxes are really starting to fill up for the Fall shipment and kids are excited to begin the inventory and packing. We’ll keep you posted on our progress in getting supplies ready for shipment. Sparking on…
Project Little Spark enjoyed working with Mr. Coleman’s class at the Bell School for the Deaf to prepare our next shipment of donated supplies.
Mr. Coleman and his kids learned about St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) as well as their global peers from The School for Children with Special Needs (SCSN) in SVG. They were excited to send their peers well wishes. When asked to predict how the children might feel when they opened their package and knew someone in Chicago was thinking about them, one of the boys signed, “happy smile happy good”. We decided that sums up the feeling pretty well! We then had fun making art work to include in the Fall shipment.
Thanks to all who donated supplies over the last few months. We collected supplies valued at ~$300 to send to SCSN in this shipment. Your ongoing generosity and support are very much appreciated.
To quote one of our kids : “thanks for the giving”, and, as always, keep sparking on!
Project Little Spark enjoyed a fun day with special needs students from St. Croix, USVI (United States Virgin Islands). We’ve collected supplies valued ~$100 in the USVI and learned about our Caribbean neighbors in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG).
The children made cards for inclusion in our New Year’s shipment to The School for Children with Special Needs in SVG. Thanks to our donors for the funds to cover shipping costs and best wishes for 2016!

Mr. Coleman and his kids collected supplies that we’ve included in our Summer shipment to The School for Children with Special Needs (SCSN) in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG). Thanks to @PollinationProject for funds to cover shipping costs!
Thanks also to all of our supporters for contributing to a successful academic year. We’ve collected ~$1,000 of in-kind supplies donations and sent three shipments to SCSN this year. Your ongoing generosity and support is humbling and very much appreciated. Stay tuned for an announcement about another upcoming project…
Enjoy summer and keep sparking!
The School for Children with Special Needs (SCSN) in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) recently received their second shipment from students at the Bell School for the Deaf in Chicago, IL. To help the Chicago students understand more about their global peers, SCSN sent several pictures showing their students participating in typical school events. The intent of the photo and card exchanges we are implementing is to help the children recognize they have a lot in common but can learn from each others’ differences. For example, all of the children enjoy games but we Chicagoans are still trying to figure out cricket (apparently very popular in SVG)! As always, we are very appreciative to our supporters who donated school supplies and to The Pollination Project for the funds to ship supplies to SVG. Sparking on…
