One of the last activities of a KidsMakeItRight project is reaching out to other "difference makers." We think about people who could be influential in helping us address a problem we noticed during our sessions. In our Planet Protector Project at Starr Garden, the kids drafted a letter to Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, making him aware of the lack of recycling bins in Starr Garden Park and asking for his help in solving that problem (see the letter here
). A couple of weeks later he has responded!
Below is his response, including links to what Philadelphia is doing to clean up and how Philadelphians can get involved! And don't forget about our KidsMakeItRight poster gallery
; use them to spread the message around your community!
Thanks Mayor Kenney for your response and for caring about keeping our corner of the planet clean!
