It's a special effervescent experience being around kids. You know that warm feeling that makes you smile wider and feel more carefree.
Imagine that multiplied 500 times -- that's what I'm feeling now. I was recently invited to present GoInspireGo's GIG SPARK (Lesson onCompassion) to 500 kids (kindergarten to fifth grade) at Sun Valley ElementarySchool in San Rafael, California. What an honor!
The theme: Community Heroes. I've been invited to speak in front of prestigious crowds of adults, but never this many children. I'm proficient in public speaking, but worried if the presentation Kala Shah, a mother of a Sun Valley student, and I put together would hold the attention of 500 little people for 30 minutes.
Many parents tell me they want their child to get civically engaged, but don't know how. Likewise, many of my students tell me they want to do better for their community, but don't know how - well GIG SPARK is your answer. Join us in making a video on this LESSON ON COMPASSION.
