My students need water bottles so they can stay properly hydrated during our activities with the Outdoor Adventures Club.
All living things must have water to survive, whether they get it from a water fountain, a rain cloud, or a little bottle attached to the side of a hamster cage. Without water, your body would stop working properly. This is especially true for outdoor activities!
My Outdoor Adventures Club students are enthusiastic about getting closer to nature.
We have taken them hiking, and the pride they showed at the top of the mountain was indescribable. Rarely do they have the opportunity to get outside of the city and into the woods that are just miles from their homes. Yet, they so desperately want these experiences. Our club members are incredibly diverse - they include immigrants, refugees, and non-English speakers. Almost all of them come from poverty-stricken families who are working hard to provide their kids the basics. They can't afford to give them the extras - which is why I am trying to help bridge the gap for them.
Reusable water bottles offer an environmentally-friendly and cost-effective alternative to sugary drinks. Students can re-fill their water bottles throughout the day, staying hydrated and healthy in order to reach their full potential.
Dehydration can keep kids from being as fast and as sharp as they would like to be. Keeping water bottles handy when the weather warms up and during high energy activities is an important part of staying healthy. Help students get the materials they need to reach their full potential.
This project is incredibly important because our inner-city kids need the opportunity to get into nature.
Consider these findings: Nature buffers the impact of life stress on children and helps them deal with adversity. The greater the amount of nature exposure, the greater the benefits. You have the opportunity to help bring the supplies needed to wonderful students, along with the help of FEED USA!
