This Monday we also talked to our students about Rainbow Stars.

We talked and shared with them how others around the world are less fortunate than us.

The children were really interested to help the others children around the world.

So we showed them how to donate at school with Rainbow Stars. It helps children understand the that if we have the capability to help we should.

We hope to donate much more to help. We like to thank all the parents and students for anything donated and helping us explain to the students about this great cause.

At the end of the year, various charitable activities like the Red Feather Community Chest and UNICEF fundraising campaigns start. Schools and supermarkets in the US and Canada often have sections for Food Banks where people can donate food. This year, English Pocket is gathering donations from students, parents, teachers, and staff to support House of Joy, a childcare facility in the Philippines.

House of Joy supports children living in conditions very different from those in Japan. They provide shelter, education, and care for kids living without basic necessities. They’ve received recognition as an excellent non-profit organization from the Filipino government and are supported by various institutions.

The fundraising event, ‘Rainbow Stars 2023,’ aims to collect donations from students and parents. They’re encouraged to contribute a comfortable amount, starting from 50 to 500 yen. Each donation earns contributors a colorful star where they can write their name. The fundraising period runs from November 13th to December 16th.

The campaign is inspired by the heartwarming stories shared during a speech by a representative from House of Joy. The talk revealed the challenges faced by the children there, their resilience, and the ways they make the most of what they have. The event highlighted the importance of donations for this cause.

English Pocket hopes to encourage everyone to contribute and make a positive impact on the lives of these children in need.
