LKHZ’s New Initiative

When Little Known Help Zone was started, it sprang from injustice, compassion, and passion. A 14 year old girl with the drive to make a difference. Something that I always heard when I was younger was “more young kids need to do things like this.” I spoke about it too. Organizations would bring me in as a nonprofit founder and I would be this teenage figure that should inspire others.

I’m 22 now, and while my big campaigns have filled me with joy, I’m starting graduate school and a job, and I don’t have 3 hours to drive into Philly traffic and donate pencils. Instead, I want to take Little Known Help Zone to a new level, supporting kids and their service projects.

I want to sustain the way I felt and inspire others.

This will be done through Color Creates a Brighter Future, my children’s coloring book that teaches kids how to recognize inequality and make a difference in their world.

LKHZ will be reading the book different places, giving children bookmarks that are a guide to starting their own service projects, and hosting a bi-yearly grant contest to support service initiatives!

We’re excited for this new initiative, as all great things evolve to shine light in the world, LKHZ has too.

Monthly Classroom Project

Monthly Classroom Project: South Philadelphia High School

This week, Little Known Help Zone was thrilled to visit another school for the monthly classroom project in Philadelphia, the South Philadelphia High School.

Located on Broad Street, this school is beautiful and noticeable with the gorgeous murals outside. They are diverse, bright, and inviting. Once inside, there are still more murals and art pieces decorating the halls.

I donated art supplies to the art teacher, as well as a ton of classroom and plant supplies to the ecology teacher.

I also got to see some of the school and learn about their student body. What used to be one of the largest high schools in Philadelphia now has 600 students, 50% as ESL students and Special Ed students.

Thank you to Janelle for arranging this!
