Swim-a-Thon Wrap Up

It looks like the total of our Swimming for Schools Swim-a-Thon will be just over $1100. Way cool. Congratulations! and Thanks! to the swimmers and students of Washington Gifted Academy. The children of Waku Kungo will be blessed by your/their concern and generosity.

I am so glad we had a chance to involve the kids of Washington, and especially the swimmers, in this project. It is good for habits of community service to start early and thus be taken for granted - "Of course I'm involved in community service - duh!" - that's just the right attitude.

I have to say special thanks to Kathi Ferrero and Jill Faber for helping to make it possible!

It is definitely a good idea to teach kids that service of any kind is right and necessary, especially service for those who have less than they do. Despite what some might think, kids love to do service and to see the good results of their labor. Much like searching for the perfect gift for someone and then looking forward to watching their reaction and delight.
