12 Days of Giving
Fourth grade teacher Ms. Stacy Messner had a conversation with her six-year old niece about how excited she was about her 12 days of giving at her school. As someone who loves to give, Messner thought this was a great idea and decided to pose a question to her class: "Would you be willing to give up the $5 gift exchange and use $5 towards giving to others?" Without hesitation, they said yes and she was beyond proud of them! They did not think of themselves first, rather others; a lesson you cannot teach through academics. Messner added "I am happy to be in a profession where I can teach life lessons."
