NASHVILLE, Tenn. (PRWEB) September 10, 2020
In honor of back-to-school season and in commemoration of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month this September, GoNoodle seeks to inspire kids across the country to help the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® by creating kindness-themed content to support the mental, physical, and emotional well-being of kids and families.
GoNoodle, media and technology company with a suite of active engagement products for kids and the adults who love them, will create interactive videos and at-home and in-class activities for kids that promote kindness and offer families an opportunity to teach values like charity and empathy in this ever-changing world. Digital social-emotional learning and educational guides focused on STEM and language arts will accompany the videos.
This new partnership is designed to connect communities, parents, and teachers with information that fosters positive conversation and reflection on shared values tied to giving back and empathy, while spreading joy and good energy to the families at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital who are battling childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
The first video of the partnership focuses on how to write a letter - check it out here.
Throughout Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, kids are encouraged to use their new letter-writing skills to send an e-card to St. Jude patient families or post a video letter on social media using the hashtag #stjudegonoodleletters.
“At GoNoodle, we care deeply about empowering kids by giving them the resources to be their best selves while offering ways to stay connected and give back to their communities,” said KC Estenson, CEO of GoNoodle. “We hope the uplifting content and resulting activities of our youth bring joy and positive energy to the families of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Every element of the partnership is aimed at empowering kids to make a difference, helping them develop empathy, and inspiring them to share and give back. The new content will offer critical resources to educators and parents who are looking for ways to help students through this difficult time with activities that drive both movement and positivity.
