Being Neighborly—A Kid Named Nicolas' Sharing

My name is Rachel and I volunteer in a safety program for kids. I came across your website while helping one of my kids, Nicolas, search for information online for a writing assignment he's been given. We want to say thank you!

Nicolas did some web searches at home and found this page interesting page about being neighborly that he brought in for me to see –

I suggested that both he and the rest of the kids share this with you because it had such great information about being neighborly which also leads to keeping our communities safer! We have a lot of fun each day when the kids come in and share the pages they found about their subjects, and while most of the pages are usually amateurish, every once in a while one of the kids brings in something very interesting :) This page really stood out to us and we learned a lot from it!

Would you please add a link to it to your web page for them, even if it is just for a little while? I want to impress upon the kids that they can accomplish things if they aren't afraid to come out of their shells and simply ask! I also don't think it hurt that I promised the group a pizza day if you'd add it! Please let me know if you’d be willing to help so I can share the exciting news with them!

Thank you for your time and thank you in advance!
