The Children´s Movement of Florida

Our guest blogger this week is The Children´s Movement of Florida.  This  is a non-partisan grassroots movement of Floridians insisting on increased investment in the first five years of all our children. They are working on improving Florida’s voluntary pre-K program.

There are so many interesting articles. Their reality is similar to so many of countries worldwide.  I have been reading their blog as well.  Please help spread the  word through  social media by posting  a link on your Facebook pages and groups.
This is their link:

They are sharing a special project The Children’s Movement of Florida during this month of February.  They are asking people to answer this short question in 100 characters or less: What lesson has a kid taught you?

We often try to guide our children through life’s tricky lessons, but I often find that children teach me -- about priorities, patience, laughter and more. They’ve also taught me that a lesson learned is best when shared. It’s in this spirit that our #LessonsFromAKid digital quilt campaign was born.
Every day, we try to instill lessons in our children, but oftentimes we learn by seeing the world through their eyes.

Participants can submit their answers all month long on our website, and may see their lessons featured on our Facebook and Twitter pages. They also will have the chance to win $50 Publix gift cards.

The process is simple:
    Think about what lesson a kid has taught you.
    Submit a short personal/original quote (you can add a photo if you wish) by clicking here:
    The Childrens Movement of Florida will collect submissions and will create custom images like those shown below, and post to their Facebook page. If your image is posted, you will be notified.
    Make sure to like and share your link with friends and family, as $50 gift cards will be awarded to the images with the highest number of shares by the Feb. 28th.

All submissions will be compiled into a digital quilt, to be featured on Pinterest. In addition to keeping us warm, over time quilts have served as a means to tell a story, share lessons and preserve knowledge for generations to come. Help showcase how children can be true teachers by participating in this special project!
