I Have My Hero Guiding Me

Nate Checketts father always gave him pearls of wisdom. Every year, his father would hand him a poem to memorize. When he was 12 years old, he was handed his father’s favorite poem “If” by Rudyard Kipling.

“Fathers love to give advice. It’s not always well-timed, or eloquent, or well-received, but it is always out of love.” -Nate Checketts

The Wisest Advice Giver 

As Nate grew older, he ran into his own set of trials with debt, health problems, and his family. He felt alone and often wished that his dad was physically next to him. 

“When he couldn’t be there, the words of this poem were.” 

Although his dad couldn’t be next to him, his father’s loving advice got him through the toughest times in his life and he applied it to his own family and children. 

A Father Knows Best 

“I feel like he knew that I was going to face trials and struggles and he was preparing me to face the challenges.” 

Although we think we may not need the advice that our father gives us, in the end, their words come back to us in times of need. 

“The best gift I got was not to just have the words memorized but to never forget the words or their meaning.”  

Now, Nate lives by and deeply cherishes the words that his father gave him when he was younger. He walks through life with confidence in knowing that his hero is guiding him.

“The things we take for granted such as food, clothing, shoes, they do not have” -Lenette Reece 

Lenette Reece is the fearless leader of Rundle Elementary School. Most of the children that attend Rundle Elementary live in poverty. This past school year Rundle partnered up with the Tyler Robinson Foundation. 

One “Small” Act of Kindness

“Our students know that no matter their situation, they will change the world for good.”

Lenette, her staff, and her students wanted to raise money for those with pediatric cancer but weren’t sure if they could raise the money needed.

“They can’t donate $1,000 but they can donate change”

Lenette and her staff decided to do a change drive and set their goal to reach $500, to make it easier for the low-income students to participate.

Giving Everything to Fight Pediatric Cancer

Instead of raising their set amount, they went above and beyond and raised over $840 to help fight pediatric cancer. 

“No matter what situation your school is in, everyone has something to give.”

Almost every student at Rundle Elementary donated toward the change drive with the Tyler Robinson Foundation. One student donated everything he had, which was only 12 cents. He said he wants to cure cancer. 

At Rundle Elementary School, they are changing the world, one small act of kindness at a time.

Kate Edwards is the Executive Director of Friends For Sight, an organization that is helping low-income children see the world from a whole new perspective. 

Saving Sight in Elementary Schools 

“Many kids are legally blind and they have never received a pair of glasses.” -Kate Edwards 

Friends For Sight travels to different elementary schools in their county almost all school year to provide comprehensive eye exams.

Most of the children Friends For Sight helps struggle in the classroom and fall behind, due to not being able to properly see.

Preventive Eye Care For Low-Income Children

“Our goal is to make sure that every child has access to vision screening and exams and glasses.” – Kate Edwards

By working with local ophthalmologists, these low-income children receive free comprehensive eye exams and glasses that they need. 

The following school year the kids that received glasses come back, excited to tell Friends For Sight that they were able to see the leaves on trees for the first time. 

“I know we’re making a difference…” – Kate Edwards

Friends For Sight truly lives by their mission of saving sight and changing lives.
