Now HERE are some kids with REAL CHARACTER.  As a followup to 'GNA's SOS drive,  The children from a school in New Jersey wants to start collecting needed items for families in New York and New Jersey in the wake of "SANDY",  and are asking if other schools would like to chip in.  Here's how

I found out about this project from the Academy of Character Education at the Sage Colleges.  They work with many schools throughout the state and the nation to instill and promote good character traits in children.  This is a great way to put these ideas into motion - by getting them to be involved in charity events and community activities.

Their idea couldn't come too soon, especially after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.  Here's what one school in New Jersey has set out to do. Scroll all the way to the bottom for a contact person.  Your school can collect these items and send them too!
