This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us all the way from Scotland, where 5 year old Euan is making and selling bracelets for charity. When Euan and his family lost their home in a chimney fire in 2010, the Davie Cooper Centre- a charity for special needs kids, young adults, and families- helped out. So now, Euan is giving back to the Davie Cooper Centre by selling bracelets to raise funds for the organization.
Celebrities like Gordon Ramsay have heard about Euan and his good deeds, and they have begun to rally for him on Twitter. So far, Euan has raised over £5,000 for the special needs charity, and he does not plan on stopping anytime soon.
He has a great website, so check it out and learn more about Euan, the Davie Cooper Centre, and how you can get involved!
At the Zimmer Children’s Museum, we are committed to making quality play and learning experiences available to all children. While the Zimmer works diligently to provide inclusive programs every day, on Open Door Days, the museum is open exclusively to families who have children with special needs. Open Door Days also combine special considerations regarding cost and “busy-ness” of the museum and allow families who prefer to enjoy the museum as part of an understanding community. Our hope is that visiting the museum is enjoyable for all families, and Open Door Days serves as another option so that all families in the city may play and learn together at the Zimmer.
