Charity Update

Its the giving season. Perhaps you followed our page and saw pictures of our assembly line and how students of all ages managed to pack boxes to be distributed to the workers and matrons along with the families El Alsson and El Alsson community supports before Ramadan starts.
This is not all, students visited Dar Ahbab El Rahman yesterday to deliver the items purchased from donations made by the students during the year.
Ahbab El Rahman orphanage accommodates 24 boys and girls. Alssonians delivered 6 new mattresses, a deep freezer and 3 fans along with food and meat items. Our Alssonians, bless their hearts were extremely happy and demonstrated compassion towards the children. They all had a wonderful time and did not want to leave. #alssonelkheir #alssoniansandproud

Alsson El Kheir

#alssonelkheir final numbers: 300 boxes packed and distributed yesterday so that everyone can have a good start of Ramadan. Target Achieved!!!!!!
260 boxes went to our school workers and matrons and 40 boxes to families we support.
This project would not have happened if it weren’t for the collaboration and coordination between both the American and British Schools. This project was coordinated by the American Guidance team and supported by the British Senior Leadership Team along with the American Senior Leadership Team. Shout out to both teams!
We are beyond proud of our Alssonians. Younger ones showed great interest and excitement to participate and older ones were a great support and set a lovely example. It was amazing seeing how the little Alssonians embraced this new experience and hopefully this experience helped them foster empathy and sense of giving..
A huge shout out to our student council members and senior students for their help and enthusiasm.
WELL DONE TO ALL….May we do this over and over again

Ramadan Calendar Idea

Dear Parents

In celebration of Ramadan, El Alsson has created a new idea based on the borrowed concept of a reverse ‘Advent’ calendar, through which our younger ones can practice acts of generosity, experience giving, helping others and understanding the true meaning of compassion. This a wholly voluntary and family based activity, developed by some of our staff, with the feedback of a few helpful parents, in the spirit of Ramadan. It is designed to be a flexible family project, allowing parents to decide how best to implement it with their children, should they choose to.
Family involvement is a key aspect of our initiative, and so we have added real life numbers, statistics, and questions for families to discuss and reflect on every day. We hope to engage children in consideration of others who are less fortunate than them and expand their awareness through eye-opening facts and discussions. Appreciation, gratitude and real life experience is our goal.
Families are free to decide together on any actions that could be taken as an appreciation for all the blessings they have, whether donating money for charity or performing an act of kindness towards a family member or those in need, or maybe a mix of both. For example, you may ask your children to donate a small sum of money for every TV in their house, or donate shoes they have outgrown to a suitable charity, as appropriate for the consideration of the day.
Donations will be decided by family members; however, it is advisable that they are taken from our children’s own savings no matter how small they are. At the end of Ramadan, it is entirely up to families where children donate any money / items to (e.g. a children’s or family charity, medical charity, food bank, etc.)
El Alsson Art staff will assign one lesson for decorating and personalizing donation boxes. Please send cardboard boxes (shoe boxes) or any portable “safe material” containers to be decorated if you wish your child to participate.

You may also wish to include acts of kindness instead of or in addition to donations. Acts of kindness may include:
Write a thank you note for someone who is positively affecting your life.
Make a phone call that will bring a smile to a family member.
Help in distributing food to the poor and needy for iftar.
In a family gathering for iftar, bring along your donations box and ask for contributions.
Visit an orphanage
Visit a hospital
Clean your room without being asked
Clean up the dining table after iftar.
Collect toys or items you don’t use any more to donate to a children’s charity
Offer to help someone carry bags or heavy items
Pick up litter or plant some flowers in a public area near your house
