“Have a Heart for Babies” is a community service project that 3 Simpson Academy students have started on their campus to raise money for the March of Dimes organization. March of Dimes is a nonprofit organization that strives to improve the health of mothers and babies even when pregnancies don’t go as planned.
Three 9th graders from SCA, Alexis Harrell, Megan Maddox, and Caroline White, are competing in the Community Service category of the Middle Level Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) Competition. For their project, they have chosen to raise awareness for this organization by raising funds on their school campus.
This past February, the girls created a project called “Have a Heart for Babies.” In the days leading up to Valentine’s Day, the girls went around to all the classrooms in the elementary, junior high, and high school at Simpson and gave each student the opportunity to buy a “heart” to send to one of their fellow classmates. The hearts were small valentines that came in many different colors. The different colors of paper symbolized relationships such as friendship, secret admirer, someone you like, or someone you love. The students could chose what color of paper they wanted to send to someone and leave a little Valentine’s Day message as well. The hearts were then delivered to the students across campus on Valentine’s Day.
These three girls organized the project, and with the help of others, created and delivered all of the valentines. They raised approximately $300 for the March of Dimes organization.
