This will be a quick post … in part because we will be telling you about something very exciting on Tuesday in this space. So consider this a teaser of sorts. The Humanity Project will announce a major new program that we’re developing now with a national grant from our good friends at State Farm Insurance. Readers of our free monthly email newsletter, of course, will hear about this first — on Monday morning. If you’d like to join our email list, just click on the Go button in the column at right that says, “Sign up for our Email Newsletter.”
We also want to thank our wonderful friends at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital for another chance to take part in their community open houses. Several hundred children and parents attended the JDCH Valentine’s open house last Thursday … and our Humanity Project booth was a great chance to talk with these folks about our anti-bullying program. We gladly answered their questions about bullying and gave advice about dealing with bullying situations in their schools.
Finally today, we’d like to let you know that the latest Humanity Project blog has been posted by our colleagues across the ocean in Africa: the Egyptian Association for Educational Resources, or E-ERA. You may know that we have a monthly blog-and-photo exchange with this highly respected nonprofit, which also works with the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Johns Hopkins University and other important institutions. E-ERA is non-religious and non-political, like the Humanity Project. And like us, they are a humanitarian organization that helps young people. The Humanity Project/E-ERA blogs are intended to allow our supporters to gain a greater insight into a fellow nonprofit that’s working in another culture. We believe these blogs emphasize the common humanity that unites all human beings rather than the relatively superficial differences that divide us. You can read our new blog at http://egypt-era.org/
