Cards for Humanity: Students take action

Seventh grade art students from Marshall Middle School took the initiative to create their own fund drive with the goal of helping victims of recent hurricanes that struck the United States. They asked for donations Friday and Saturday at the Starbucks located near the old Vons, 10000 Aviary Drive, and they will be there again Sunday morning, Sept. 24 from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. Those who make a donation receive a special greeting card, handmade with great care by one of the students.

Earlier this month, students from Laura McDonald’s art classes were learning about the 9-11 attacks against the United States and were discussing both Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. It’s understandable that 12-year-olds, upon becoming aware of the enormity of these calamities, might have felt a bit anxious and helpless at the same time. The youngsters wondered what they could do to make a difference. That’s when they decided to take action by organizing a fund drive to help the hurricane victims.

“When the hurricane hit Texas, and then we knew another was coming to Florida — and we were in the midst of talking about 9-11 — we thought, ‘We’re so fortunate to live in San Diego and we haven’t been through anything devastating,’” McDonald explained. “So, we thought, ‘How can we, as middle schoolers, do something to help out these victims that have been affected by these natural disasters and such?’”

Art students from Marshall Middle School are giving away colorful, hand-made greeting cards to everyone who donates to their fund benefitting hurricane victims.

McDonald’s students came up with the idea to create handmade greeting cards which they would give away to anyone who would donate to a fund they created to help the hurricane victims. A couple of students went to the Starbucks on Aviary Drive to ask permission to set up a donation stand this weekend. The Starbucks manager was kind enough to grant permission, and the students collected donations Friday and Saturday, and will be there again Sunday, Sept. 24. Each person who donates is given a free, handmade greeting card. The suggested donation is $2, “but we’ll take whatever they can give,” McDonald said.

The greeting cards include thank you cards, cards of congratulations, birthday cards and even blank cards. Each card was made by a student. Some are hand painted using watercolors, while others feature calligraphy.

“They really did a good job and they organized pretty much this whole idea from start to finish and called it Cards for Humanity,” McDonald explained.

“I kind of came up with the Starbucks idea,” said Noelle Mingo, 12.

Mingo said her card creations were “mainly watercolors because that’s what I’m best at.”

Alona Schnee, 12, further explained the reason for the project.

“We thought it would be nice because we have really good weather. We don’t really have severe problems with weather,” she said.

“We thought, since we’re not going through these problems, we should help the people who are,” Mingo added.

Tyson Dougherty and Rory Long are two art students who helped out on the organizational side of things.

“We organized the sales and got to use Starbucks. We went there on the weekend and asked the manager if we could set up a table there,” Dougherty explained.

“We went to Starbucks on Sunday a week ago and got permission and an email and everything from the manager. … It was pretty cool,” Long said. “There’s always a little doubt … but the manager was nice and I guess she understood that it was for a good cause.”

“It’s nice to know that we’re helping people in need,” Dougherty said.

  2. It was a lot of work and I learned so much in the process.  But I’m happy to say that our budget kitchen remodel turned out well and we ended up with a kitchen that overall works great for us! This was the thing I struggled with most when remodeling our kitchen. I wanted really great looking countertops, but the only problem was countertops were super expensive. Here’s a look at 3 of our Portland kitchen remodels and how they fall on our Good-Better-Best scale. Do you have a kitchen that you want to remodel on a budget?  Well, you are in the right place! So beautiful! Can you tell me more details of your remodel- where you got the cabinets and quartz as well as your contractor and fabricator? I’m in Arizona as well and about to do a full Kitchen remodel. I would love to get these prices! I thought that it was interesting that you explained how you decided to design and remodel your kitchen and then chose to complete the project yourself. I have been thinking about remodeling my own kitchen but I am worried that I will end up making mistakes, resulting in costing more money and time. I will just be sure to hire a professional instead of doing it myself since I feel that I would get the most out of my money that way. Of course, we can always order you new doors and drawers for your cabinets. However, just know that these are the most expensive part of a cabinet! The boxes are actually the least expensive part of a cabinet. A door can run in the $75-$150 ball park EACH. And a drawer front can run from $35-75 EACH. The cost of changing out all the doors and drawers of a kitchen can be much higher than you’d think. Plus, you wouldn’t be getting a warranty, soft close door or drawer hardware (those would have to be purchase separately), or a new kitchen layout for better function.

Another issue with high water pressure is that no cleaning detergent is used. As previously stated, the water pressure is what’s cleaning the surface. Water pressure alone is not enough to properly clean a surface. Think about when you wash your car. Do you just hose it off with a high water pressure or do you use soap and then rinse off the surface? Well, that is basically soft washing. Soft washing is the process of cleaning sensitive surfaces with low water pressure combined with a cleaning detergent such as sodium hypochlorite (bleach).
