[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]We love this Story of HOPE submitted by Julie Levinson from the Epstein Hillel School in Massachusetts. We are thankful for these awesome students and their teacher who wanted to bring hope to those who need it the most! 

Fourth graders at Epstein Hillel School in Marblehead, Massachusetts know that they have a lot to be thankful for.

Along with their teacher, Sarah Boland, they spent some time before Thanksgiving talking about empathy and compassion for people who are struggling or are less fortunate than they are. Their conversation helped to show them how, when people are struggling or have suffered a loss, feeling supported, even by strangers, can go a long way towards making them feel better.

Mrs. Boland then introduced her class to Stars of Hope. The class spent a lot of time discussing who they wanted to make stars for and after much discussion, they chose to each make two stars: one for the people affected by the California wildfires and another for those impacted by the shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The added bonus for the kids? The lesson that it is better to give than to receive. The kids loved this project and are already discussing who they can make stars for next Thanksgiving!
