Send My Friend To School
- I was just wondering if anyone else plans on contributing to 'Send My
Friend To School'? It is an International Art Project (part sponsored
by Oxfam) that coincides with the G8 Summit and the Make Poverty History
The hope is that school children design a paper doll or virtual doll to
represent one of the 100 million + poorest children across the world
unable to attend school. 1 million paper children are needed and these
children will be delivered to the world leaders at the G8.
We are doing this project at our school and it ties in nicely with other
curriculum areas besides art too (like geography, current events,
economics, religious ed., citizenship, etc).
I think it is worthwhile issue and will be attending the G8 rally in
Edinburgh this July.
The closing date for submissions is 23 June and the website with all the
information is: http://www.sendmyfriend.org/home.html
