#WATWB: Schools and Teachers Looking Out For Homebound Students


We Are The World Blogfest in white

Happy Anniversary to WATWB -going strong for 3 Years!

“…We hope to share the stories that show kindness, compassion, hope, overcoming challenges and in general, the impressive resilience of the human spirit. For every dark, negative story out there, there is a positive, heartwarming story that will add some light and lift the human spirit.”

Belinda Witzenhausen


Before we get to my two stories (I couldn’t just pick one), I want to say thank you to all the people working hard to provide basic needs. Doctors, nurses, first responders, sanitation workers, grocery store workers, and other public servants, thank you for your service and dedication!

While schools are closed, school bus drivers, staff, and  even principals are delivering meals to students who may have depended on school lunch programs. Here’s just one of many examples:


And here’s a touching story from a reported who calls herself, “Your Neighborhood Hope Dealer” about two teachers who left affirming chalk messages at their students’ homes.

This month’s #WATWB co-hosts are Sylvia McGrath,
Damyanti Biswas, Shilpa Garg, Dan Antion, and Belinda Witzenhausen.

  1. Over here the authorities have been inundated by almost 1,000,000 volunteers when the target was just 250,000

  2. These are amazing stories. Thank You for sharing.

  3. JoAnna, I’m happy to see that schools, teachers and others are taking care of the kids that may not otherwise have a meal. Our community is ensuring the same with children and the homeless. The chalk messages are a wonderful idea and how awesome for the kids who are feeling isolated from those teachers and their friends.

    Thanks for participating in WATWB and being part of this positive community.

  4. Hi JoAnna – excellent about those who are distributing food packets to the needy and forgotten in these times. And what fun those two kids must have had to have seen that message from their teachers – just a delight to see … thank you. Great … take care of you and yours … all the best – Hilary

    • Thank you, Hilary. I know those kids’ smiles must reach all the way to their souls to know they are so cared for. And so are you. Wishing you and yours good health and safety.

  5. It really helps to show that there are so many good people out there willing to step up and help out their communities. When this first started and people were going nuts hoarding i have to admit it hurt my heart a little. Stories like this have helped me see that there are still so many wonderful people out there. Thanks so much for sharing and for being a part of #WATWB. Stay safe and be well! 🙂

    • It’s always important to recognize the good that people do, but especially in challenging times. Thank you for your leadership in WATWB. It means a lot.

  6. Thanks for sharing! I stopped doing WATWB posts when I stopped getting reminders (I don’t have Facebook etc). It’s nice to see some posts!

    Love, light, and glitter

    • I get reminders in phone texts, too. I admire and sometimes envy people who don’t have Facebook. It takes up so much time that I’m trying to step back from it. This blogging community is more comfortable. Thanks for reading and supporting the light!

  7. These are such beautiful stories. It’s so heartwarming to see that in this difficult time, people are going the extra mile to help and support each other! Thanks for sharing, JoAnna!
    Stay safe and be well ♥

  8. Love this project!
