FAIMH Vice President Jackie Romillo and Communications & Training Coordinator Christine Hughes Pontier were joined by Allen Yergovich of Kiwanis Florida at the United Way Center for Excellence in Early Education Demonstration School, where Congresswoman Donna Shalala donated a box of ClearMasks and our FACES ARE ESSENTIAL Kit.
This donation event, attended by several South Florida media outlets, was an exciting opportunity for FAIMH and our partners to share the importance of young children seeing the full faces of their caregivers. It also helps us spread the word to the community that this success of this program will depend on you! Our ability to raise the funds needed to donate ClearMasks + FACES ARE ESSENTIAL Kits to every child care program in the state will require each and every member and friend of FAIMH to donate and support us further by sharing this initiative with their network, friends and family.
Right now, tens of thousands of Florida's children are in the care of early learning teachers whose faces are mostly covered all day long, and that represents a threat to those children's healthy brain development and their lifelong mental health. FAIMH feels the urgency with which we must get these fully transparent masks to children--do you? Please help us by sharing our social media posts and emails about FACES ARE ESSENTIAL, and donate generously. 100% of funds donated go directly to this initiative. Every $75 will get 1 box of ClearMasks + a FACES ARE ESSENTIAL Kit to a child care program.
