Bandage Project 2008-2019
WE DID IT!!! June 4, 2:52 pm we wrote on and counted our 1.5 millionth bandage!! More are coming in and we will continue to write and count. 2018/19 final total: 1,511,137
Since February 7, 2008, we have been collecting bandages sent from all over the world to honor the 1.5 million children who were killed in the Holocaust. Help us reach our 1.5 million goal by sending bandages to: Tolerance Kids 700 Southgate Rd. Sacramento, Ca 95815 We can purchase bandages at the .99 cent store in boxes of 100. Sending money will convert straight into bandages.
Our goal for the school year 2018/19 is to reach the completion of our amazing Bandage Project. Please see 40 classroom challenge and help us reach this!

How do people find out about our Bandage Project? One way is that I spend hundreds of hours addressing envelopes. Here is what I did one Saturday. My students have challenges these last three months as to who can write the most letters. Right now it is Sofia, Dion and Beyonce leading the writing letters pack! :)
Officially there is a container of our Bandages at the MOT in Los Angeles! Where will the completed project be? The finished bandage container will be two containers 24 inches by 48 inches and 60 inches tall! I'm working with several artists to design the container and we are hopeful!
