Lend a Robotic Hand to Honduras

Dear Donor,

This week we’re celebrating the power of the crowd for GlobalGiving’s Little by Little campaign. From today until Friday, GlobalGiving will match online donations up to $50 at 50%.

Little acts of kindness will have an extra BIG impact — here we share a recent story of a robotics donation.

Our LEGO Robotics Regional competition is back. However, teams were short on pieces to build their dream machines and sourcing Legos in Honduras has not been easy.

Shoulder to Shoulder’s robotics mentor, Alan Ostrow, heard and reached out to his community in the US. And a group of young elementary students, lead by their mentor Sally, were determined to help. They assembled 12 kits containing all different sizes and colors from old LEGO sets.

A completed robot is a culmination of skills in STEM, in leadership, in teamwork and self-confidence. Piece by piece, little by little these students lent a robotic hand to help our students innovate toward their competition goals. 

With this we are one ‘LEGO’ piece closer to making the competition become a reality … because when we all come together with compassion, there’s no telling what we can do.

Please make a donation to help us reach our goal.
