Yesterday I got the greatest email! It was from Charon at the Points of Light Foundation. I was one of the top leaders for their game of Tag and I’d won a donation in my name to the charity of choice. Well of course I chose the Phoenix Conservatory of Music, where I sit on the board. I also made sure that I let the entire board and everyone else I knew how easy it was. For those of you who are engaging your students in service learning projects, the Hands on Network and the Points of Light Foundation are great resources for you.
The Tag You’re It! campaign is a perfect way to engage your students in real and meaningful change that is student driven. They define their commitment, they recruit their friends, they report when they’ve completed their commitment and then they blog about it.
