Storyboard Text

  • Thanks for coming out to play with me today. I really miss my grandpa shooting hoops with me.
  • I know. I haven't been able to see my grandma since March. I think she must be really lonely since Covid started.
  • My mom wants me to Facetime her, like every day, just to stay connected, but I don't always know what to say. It gets awkward.
  • Well, I was reading about some really cool things people are doing in the community to connect with those who are stuck inside alone.
  • The Gov't of Canada has helped sponsor a group called "Love our Seniors". They send cards to the elderly to lift their spirits.
  • That sounds like a great outreach program. And I bet lots of people don't have family living close to them, or maybe no family at all!
  • I know how to send my grandma a card, but where do I find out how I can do more? I don't really know where to start.
  • There's a website called TakingItGlobal. I bet they have info on projects, but also tools and resources to help us get started with our own initiative.
  • I'm heading back to my place. We just got a new computer and faster internet connection so I'm going to research this. I'll message you the plan.
  • OK. I'll meet you there. Maybe we could even do more than cards. Like we could try making some cool videos with positive messages to send.
  • Let's do it! I'm tired of sitting around doing nothing anyway. I'd rather make a difference in the world!
  • I told my sister about this, she loves helping with Human Rights, Health & other Global Issues. She's going to help us get a #RisingYouth Grant so we can make masks, too!
