Yesterday, Little Known Help Zone was able to drop off $150 worth of school supplies to Ms. Emert’s Classroom. This was incredibly exciting and her classroom was set up in such a friendly and open way. I placed each kit on each desk for the students to see on their first day of school.
In October, I will be returning to read books and do crafts with her 8 students of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. She teaches both verbal and nonverbal students on the autism spectrum in the Allentown School District. Additional good news is that all three of her Donor’s Choose campaigns were funded! This was a true success for LKHZ’s first classroom donation.
On Wednesday, September 27th Little Known Help Zone Bryn Mawr held our first event, a yoga fundraiser.
Prior to that, we sold raffle tickets for a gift card to Mom’s Organic Market and raised $50.
The event was an hour long yoga class taught by BMC Alum Alexandra Seits and had delicious snacks afterwards! The event was a success, and even though the outdoor component was rained out, we held it inside and it was an enjoyable day.

On Tuesday, April 19th, Bryn Mawr’s Little Known Help Zone hosted a yoga class out doors to raise awareness about the club and positive cultural elements in Central America.
This was coupled with a promotional Yoga Ball Chair raffle, which raised $80 for Little Known Help Zone causes.
The class was a success, with 14 people arriving and destressing with yoga. It was a beautiful class, thanks to the teaching of Alexandra Seitz. This event will be an annual event run by LKHZ and hopefully grow each year.

On February 23rd, Bryn Mawr College will be hosting the second annual Community Day of Learning. The title for this year’s theme is “In/ Visible: Class on Campus and in Our Lives.” Last year, over 800 students, faculty, and staff participated in some or all of the day’s program; the latter included 40 sessions offered primarily by combinations of students, faculty and staff and in formats ranging from workshops to films to panel discussions to lectures.
Little Known Help Zone will be hosting a session titled, Class, Culture, and Poverty: Bias Towards the Indigenous in Central America. The description for the session is as follows:
Before colonialism, aboriginals in Central America ruled the land. After Old World contact, a hierarchical class structure based in racism and ethnocentric superiority led to detrimental poverty in Central America, strongest in Indigenous Populations. Learn more, as well as how you can help.
This presentation will be a wonderful way to spread the word about the issues of Latin America and the causes Little Known Help Zone supports, as well as ways to get involved and help.
Saturday’s yoga fundraiser was a success, drawing some new support in from the community and creating a day of peace and philanthropy. A total of $70 has been added to the goal, which leaves a remainder of about $600 to go!
The class was wonderful at West End, taught by Jamie, and catered to all ages from 6 to 70! The event really showed how we all can join together to support one common cause.
Next month will be another fundraiser at Western Salisbury, and hopefully will bring us closer to the goal!
