This summer you accomplished a lot
This summer you accomplished a lot.
We could give you the statistics about how effective you, as a supporter of ASK, were in reviewing math and reading skills, and about how you sparked a love of learning, but we'd rather tell you about what really happened. You made smiles happen this summer. You helped kids share stories and a few tears. There was contagious giggling and more than a few hugs. You helped kids create good memories and lifelong friends.
Some of our ASK kids took a break from their chemotherapy treatments to come act like kids again. And no one asked them why they were bald. Our survivors met kids who instantly understood what they'd gone through and how they'll never look at life the same way again.
Our ASK kids will be ready to head back to school because you helped stop the academic summer slide with our programs. But what they'll really remember is how much fun they had. And that's worth a lot. Thank you for helping our ASK kids be kids this summer.
