Month of Love is an idea that came to school teacher Rhonda Draper as she was working with elementary aged children. She asked them to empty their pockets one day so that they could pool their money to see what kind of difference they could make in the world. They came up with an elastic band and a bingo chip. “Okay then,” she said to her students, “Who gets to make the decisions then – the wealthy? Do we get no say because we have no money?” The students felt very poor at that moment. She then asked, “How many of you have more than one pair of shoes?” They all put their hands up. “Who has more than one hoodie/sweatshirt?” They all put up their hands. “How many of you have more than one electronic games or computer?” They looked around at one another and all put up their hands. They felt very rich at that moment.
