They Raised $2,000 and Got to Decorate Their Teachers

When the students of Glenoaks Christian Elementary and Wooden Shoe Preschool learned that children in another part of the world are suffering from a curable, they were shocked.  In 17 months, children from two years old all the way to sixth grade raised $2,000 in support of Imagine No Malaria.

According to the Principal, Esther Choi, the school just happens to be the only Protestant Christian school in San Fernando and Sylmar.  The school also just happens to be part of San Fernando United Methodist Church.

With the knowledge of this terrible disease and a desire to make offering more meaningful during their weekly chapel time, the school decided to support the Imagine No Malaria initiative with goals along the way such as:

$500 –   No Homework Night
$1000 –  Extra 30 minutes of recess
$1500 –  Video Game Day
$2000 – Decorate the Teachers

Students also developed and performed a skit that portrayed the lives of children on the African continent and offering an explanation of malaria the disease.

Through it all, the students experienced the great joy in making a difference in the lives of others as well as what it means to give oneself for others.  “They learned the great privilege of enjoying a healthy life as well as the great need that there is for health around the world,” says Principal Choi.

Even with the goal being reached, the students and the school is continuing in its efforts to support the Imagine No Malaria initiative with posters and wristbands.
