Materials for Homeschooling

More and more families are stocking up on school supplies

Families everywhere are trying to figure out how to turn their homes into homeschools.  When schools initially closed for two weeks after March Break, most parents decided to stick with teaching ‘life skills’ instead of tackling the formal curriculum.  Now that five weeks have passed and there’s no light at the end of the homeschooling tunnel, these same parents realize there’s only so much benefit an eight-year-old can get from folding laundry and taking out the garbage.

Through our friends at Romero House, a charity offering support and housing services to refugees, we’ve learned about an eight-year-old boy from El Salvador who could use some help stocking his new homeschool.

How you can help

We’re pooling funds to help get this little boy the tools he needs to bring school home.  He needs markers, pencil crayons, pencils and workbooks.

Romero House welcomes refugee claimants with open arms. They offer housing and support services to people who claim refugee status after arriving in Canada. Refugees are welcome to stay in one of their 10 apartments without internal locks, to live as neighbours rather than simply clients. They help the refugees establish themselves in Canada and create community together.

All are welcome in their community regardless of religion, ethnicity, political beliefs, sexual orientation or gender identity. Over the past 25 years, they have built an organization that celebrates difference and offers the support that refugees need.

Is COVID-19 Actually A Good Thing?

COVID-19? A good thing? No. Hell no. But damn there is a seriously bright silver lining here and I hope I’m not the only one squinting. Devastation caused by the coronavirus has reached all corners of the world, but so has a level of compassion that we haven’t seen in decades, if ever.

Laughter is The Best Form of Therapy

During these trying times, we offer some light-hearted relief by sharing some of the most comical memes, videos and tweets that have popped up over the past few weeks. In the words of Mark Twain, “The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.” Enjoy.
