Dear friends and colleagues,

Boulder Waldorf Kindergarten was flooded this week during the storms in Colorado, and although they have been able to salvage tables and chairs, everything else will need to be replaced. Suzanne Down, the school’s mentor, is willing to receive donations of any useful Waldorf items: play cloths, silks, wool felt, dolls, crayons, paint brushes, puppets, wooden toys, play animals, gnomes, additional nature table supplies, candles, candlesticks, etc. Contact Suzanne –  suzanne@junipertreepuppets.com   for mailing address.

If you do not possess school items but wish to help, Boulder Waldorf Kindergarten (BWK) is also accepting cash donations via PayPal. Go to http://paypal.com, click Transfer then Send Someone Money. Use donate@boulderwaldorf.com for the TO email address. Cash donations will not be tax deductible at this time.

If you wish to donate but remain anonymous, or if you have additional questions, please contact Suzanne Down -  suzanne@junipertreepuppets.com

BWK is a Full Member of WECAN, http://waldorfearlychildhood.org. According to Nancy Blanning of WECAN, “Boulder Waldorf is a beautiful, farm-type kindergarten with chickens, goats, bunnies, honey bees and big biodynamic garden plots. It is a real working farm / kindergarten. The goats get milked daily and they make goat cheese weekly, which the children have on their bread the following day. It has been and will be again a wonderful example of practical and artistic life in the Waldorf kindergarten. They are looking for space in a church or other location (they have a lead on a synagogue) where they can operate. It may take 4-5 months to get the building in shape. Seana Grady, the Boulder Waldorf Kindergarten Co-Director, is upbeat and optimistic that things will work out. We send our loving thoughts and prayers to this lovely program for children. ”

 

Seana’s family home adjacent to BWK was also flooded. They had to evacuate in the dark hours of the morning on Thursday. Thankfully all are safe. Seana wants everyone to know that BWK and her family are already receiving an outpouring of warmth and support. “We feel so grateful and held. It is truly amazing to experience how a community pulls together in times like these. We feel fortunate and blessed that we are safe and supported. Our hearts go out to all in Colorado that have experienced hardship and loss during this time.”
