Back in October 2015 I launched the #PhysEd Gives Back Campaign to support the amazing work of Right to Play. The idea was that through the sale of Fundamental Movement Skill cards that I had created, that 100% of the proceeds would be donated directly to Right to Play to assist their efforts in providing less fortunate children with opportunities to be educated through play.
UPDATE: Today I am so pleased and honoured to announce that in addition to the February 3rd donation of USD$140.00 on behalf of Team #PhysEd. I have made a second donation of USD$160.00 for a total of $USD300.00 I seriously can not thank you all enough for your support, generosity and kindness during this campaign and I am so proud that together we were able to make this donation possible.
With this donation Right to Play will be able to give 6 children the opportunity to participate in weekly sport and play opportunities for one whole year. They could also use the money to allow 30+ children to participate in a Play Day, a community event which brings children and families together for a day of fun and learning about disease prevention and peace. Another way the money may be used is to purchase almost 20 Sport Equipment packs for use by Right to Play children and coaches.
Through your donations to this amazing cause you have not only been able to help you to develop and assess your own students physical literacy, but will through your donation you have assisted in allowing children who are less fortunate to have the opportunity to play and develop their own physical literacy.
