Recently, Rachel's Challenge was at First Philadelphia Preparatory Charter School in Pennsylvania doing it's Challenge presentation and FOR Club training. The students were very inspired after the presentation and FOR Club training. Many of them came to school on their day off to launch their very first FOR Club project. Watch the video and read the email below that we received from Liza Meiris, the Student Activities Chair at First Philadelphia Preparatory Charter School.

During a recent visit to Arlington High School in New York, Rachel's Challenge was interviewing them about their "Hands on Walls", but they were very eager and excited to share about a few of their FOR Club projects. One of the projects was their Peace Pole garden that encourages an atmosphere of kindness. Christopher Babb, the Friends of Rachel Club Advisor and Social Worker at the school, shared the story of how his school discovered an old water fountain dedicated to Columbine, and then relocated it and expanded their vision for it and other kindess decorative elements. Watch the videos of the Peace Pole Garden and their rod iron Friends of Rachel bench below.
