Donation sent in loving memory of Emily Sandall
to celebrate her life of service to those in need.
We are happy to donate these hats to you in honor of Emily Sandall. We are donating 11 wool hats from Nepal . Emily would love this idea. She worked at a school in Nepal and helped to support them through high school and college. It is a free school for children that would be vulnerable to child labor. We have helped support the school for the last 11 years. Emily passed away 11 years ago in a hiking accident. She dedicated her high school, college years and beyond to humanitarian causes around the world. She believed strongly in the importance of education to insure that you have a voice and the skills to pursue your passions.
We hope that you enjoy the hats and that you work hard in school towards your future goals.
Emily Sandall Foundation

Some wonderful good deeds that were sent to me:

3.Donating to Seattle Food bank and humane society.Delivered cans to food bank .
4.I donated money to the Save the Boundary Waters campaign and contacted representatives in New York and Minnesota about stopping mining in the BW watershed. I also have been singing to my daughter “Way Over Yonder in a Minor Key,” which I learned from Emily.
5.I teach mathematics at a high school. After telling them Emily’s story, I asked my students to perform a “Random Act of Kindness” and then showed them how to generate random integers using their graphing calculators.
Over the course of the week, ~70 students each performed 5 random acts of kindness, making approximately 350 acts for Emily.
6.Took a friend to lunch and to chat at a state park about old friends and good times at camp.
7.Took home-made cookies to good friends, donated to Puerto Rico Hurricane relief, cleaning up a park to honor Emily.
In honor of Emily on the 11th year, The Sandall Family will donate 11 Nepali wool hats to the Giving Circle for 11 students to keep warm this
These children, identified as unaccompanied homeless teenagers, do not live with a parent or guardian but are enrolled in the Bellingham School District. Due to their age and because they have no parent or guardian, they are not eligible for many community services.
The Bellingham Giving Circle is a local non-profit with a mission to support the needs of these homeless kids in order for them to stay in school.
Wouldn’t Emily love this idea?!
