Want to #ShowTheLove to Your Child’s Teachers?
Over the past few months, teachers from across the country have gone above and beyond to continue providing educational support from a safe distance. Social distancing and school closures have temporarily changed the way kids learn, and even changed the way many graduating high school seniors celebrated their important rite of passage.
Essilor Vision Foundation — a nonprofit devoted to providing eyeglasses to children in need — has created an easy way for parents and students to say “thanks” to devoted educators who have gone the extra mile during these uncertain days of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The foundation encourages all to join its “Show the Love” campaign, wherein students may send “messages of encouragement” to teachers. It’s basically a free social media campaign, with images available at the EVF website that can be easily shared on social media.
The campaign suggests sending teachers notes on Facebook or LinkedIn, “thanking them for their ongoing service” and using hashtags such as #ShowTheLove. It is also suggested that students post videos of themselves, featuring a “Show the Love” message intended for an educator.
“We are extremely grateful for the community of teachers who are helping our nation’s schoolchildren get through this crisis,” said Becky Palm, EVF President and Executive Director, via written comment. “We sincerely thank every teacher for their dedication during this dynamic and uncertain time, especially because we know they play such a critical role in their students’ lives.”
