Stories From Around A Better World

Below is a 24-minute video full of uplifting stories, testimonials from community members and funny stories from around A Better World. Take a few minutes out of your day to check out what we’re all about!

We get to share an exciting and uplifting story with you! The Green family, who attended A Better World last year, were in a pretty tough living situation and found themselves looking for a more permanent home. Our Administration and Fundraising Director, Beyonka Fulton, took it upon herself to get them there. Enlisting her community partners, our board member Carl Fochler, and the resources that A Better World has to offer, Beyonka worked tirelessly to find them a home and Carl took them shopping to outfit the house and get the family a brand new closet of clean clothes and furnishings for their home. A very special thank you goes out today to Beyonka and Carl for their relentless support of our families!

 

We want to introduce you to Aiden, a shy, bright six-year-old who has been in the A Better World community for the last couple of years. The younger son of one of our teachers, he has always chose to listen quietly instead of being the one to raise his hand.

That is, until the last couple of weeks. He has started to come out of his shell during our virtual summer camp. During Monday’s camp, he messaged Mr. Anthony to request a lesson about learning how to tell time. The schedule was rearranged to accommodate a time-telling lesson and when the time came, Aiden was ready!

He offered to help teach the lesson by sharing his screen (reminder: he’s six years old!) and helped teach the class his favorite song to remember how to tell time. The kids loved learning from him and we can’t wait to see where he goes from here!
