A Playground for K-12 in PEI

My bloggy-pal in PEI needs a favour for her school, and as always I'm happy to help her out. She's a sweet person, a dedicated teacher, and a doting, loving mom and family gal.

Lesson From The Middle

Krystal Mills is a grade 7 teacher-blogger from Souris, Prince Edward Island. Her school needs your help! They are in the semi-final round in a contest to win up to $140 000 for a new, inclusive playground for the school. As with many schools, students who are in wheelchairs have limited to no access to our playground equipment and recess time is not a time where they are physically able to interact with their peers. However, this social interaction is so important to their development and they deserve it! 

Her current school building will be demolished at the end of this school year and renovations are soon to be underway at the local high school building, which will make it the first K-12 facility in PEI. Playground equipment is not part of the budget and is not covered by the government. Her community applied for the Aviva Community Fund to help us out and they've made it through the first round.

Here's where YOU come in! To get into the final round (and be one of the projects in front of a panel of judges) we need votes. It takes just a moment to register your email (or you can log in using your Facebook account). After you have registered, voting takes literally just one second. You can vote once each day from December 2-11. 

Some incredible teachers have actually taken this on as a "Random Acts of Kindness" project and their whole class has registered and is voting for us every day! They'd love your shares via social media: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, blog posts etc. Any exposure is WELCOME and APPRECIATED! I know we can do this... we just need people like you to help get us there.



Krystal says:
"Thank you so much and I hope to send you an update in a month or two saying....
WE WON!"

Please vote if you can find it in your heart to help out a (perhaps distant) Canadian community this holiday season. They would appreciate it more than you could possibly know!
