Do you believe that kindness is powerful? Not just nice…but POWERFUL.
So we’re canvassing in the South Loop a few days ago and we walk into a small therapeutic, holistic healing boutique…
We ask if we can share our campaign postcards in the front of the establishment for patrons to view/take.
The owner of this lovely space says, “Of course” and he asks us to tell him more about the school and what brought us to working in education…Fast forward about 45 minutes through us sharing our stories with each other and bonding over meager beginnings, community values and a shared passion for educational equity.
He says: “I have something I want to show you.”
He walks us to a back room FILLED with new toys and says that he wants to donate them to us.
We say: “You can’t be serious.” lol…
He and the local Girl Scouts troupe had collected dozens of toys to donate to a group overseas, but the shipping carrier unexpectedly cancelled their flight months ago without any plans to reschedule. He said he had been wondering for weeks what would become of the items and then we walked right in.
Today, those toys arrived at #LALC in #Englewood and there are more on the way! And guess what else…he’s sponsoring TWO events in the next month, the proceeds of which will go toward the building of the new community center.
Kindness changes lives.
Thank you to all of you who continue to #ShowUpForEnglewood through your acts of kindness.
Love. Community. Power.

“Dreaming Up: A Celebration of Building” by Christy Hale…
I would sometimes read this book to my preschool class. Little eyes would widen and mouths dropped when they saw the little boy in this book stacking blocks high over his head (for the 13 billionth time…lol). Some little ones would laugh and jump and clap in excitement and couldn’t wait to show how ‘smart’ and ‘strong’ and ‘creative’ they were with their own blocks…
I can’t wait to tell the kiddos a story of how people from all walks of life…young, old….near, far…rich, poor… family friends and strangers, even…of many nations, identities and creeds… came together as a community to build their haven for learning and life in the Englewood community. Can you imagine?
Can you imagine their disbelief and excitement then?
THAT will be ‘a celebration of building.’ πŸ˜€
Love. Community. Power.

Ya’ll…we are 41% to our first benchmark goal! $4165 and counting!
Around this time of the year, many people are looking for a great mission or cause to which they can contribute, and I am so blessed to be able to say that in December 2017, over 40 people have chosen to support Little Angels Learning Center in constructing a new community center. I pray light and love over each and every one of you.
Here’s to a new year of strong community. strong love. and love power.
In the words of a great song by a great artist:
We’ve got love power.
It’s the greatest power of them all.
We’ve got love power.
And together we won’t fall.

Thank you to everyone who has supported so far! We have surpassed 10% of our first benchmark goal and are now at $1055!
UPDATE: I wanted to share that we met with Studio Gang architects after writing their office a letter about our new community center. The Office of the Mayor also sent a letter of support!!! Architecture geeks both near and far will join in the excitement of the idea of working with the legendary Studio Gang, for sure! πŸ˜€ This architecture group has flawlessly executed on local projects from University of Chicago to the Aqua Tower and Boardwalk at Lincoln Park Zoo.
The Chicago architects are excited about the prospect of working in Englewood with LAFLC, so let’s continue to raise the dollars that we need to bring this into reality!

If anyone is donating from another city, state and would be willing to share where you are supporting from, our students, families and staff would love to know where the love and support is coming from!
So far, we’ve heard from supporters in Washington D.C… Ojai, CA…Minneapolis, MN and New York City…and many from all over Chicago.
We believe in the power of community and know that our community spreads far beyond the walls of LAFLC, beyond the Englewood area and even beyond Chicago and Illinois.
It takes a village to serve our children and families, and we thank you all for being a part of our village.
