The club kept the tradition going and hung up over 800 valentines for everyone at Carmel High School.

Think about a moment where someone’s support helped you overcome a challenge or difficulty. Think of a moment where someone brought you great joy or happiness and filled your day with excitement. Think about a time when someone supported your growth, learning, and positive change. Here you can identify someone within the Carmel Unified School District who you want to express gratitude to, whether a staff or student. 

Your login has been collected but you can keep the submission to the person anonymous. This Club Save Lives will be sharing the comments with the person, if we can find them, within Carmel Unified School District. 

This Club Saves Lives will be randomly selecting 10 students to receive a $25 gift card from all nominations submitted by November 24. You can nominate as many people as you would like. 

The club made bags of candy for Nancy’s Project to pass out to kids in South County. Nancy’s Project supports farm workers and their families.

The club invited students to carry a jerrycan full of water around the track to see what it would be like to carry water everyday. Each jerry can weights 20-40 pounds.

Club members volunteered at Second Harvest Food and then attended the A’s game with #ICANHELP. The students met New York Yankees Aaron Judge and were celebrated for using “Digital 4 Good”.

On the first day of school This Club Saves Lives sponsored a backpack stuffing to support Nancy’s Project. The sophomores stuff 200 backpacks to donate to students in need in Monterey County.

UNICEF has been working nonstop in eastern Ukraine, delivering lifesaving programs for affected children and families as fighting has taken an increasingly heavy toll on the civilian population of 3.4 million people — including 510,000 children — living in the Donbas region.

Key emergency interventions include:

  • prepositioning health, hygiene and emergency education supplies as close as possible to communities near the line of contact
  • trucking safe water to conflict-affected areas
  • supporting mobile child protection teams providing psychosocial care to children traumatized by chronic insecurity, responding to cases of violence and abuse against children and assisting children separated from family
  • working with municipalities to ensure there is immediate help for children and families in need

The club spent every January lunch meeting cutting out valentines for every student and staff member at Carmel High School. Each valentine had a hand written note or pun on the back and the valentines were hung up around school.

Our amazing club member Shannon created these designs to decorate the campus bathrooms. We printed the designs on decals and stuck them on the bathroom doors. 

We also included some important info on the inside of the doors about support services available on campus. 

And while we were there we refilled the menstrual product bin! #tampontuesday 

The club brought back the Red Cross Club’s Haiti shirt from 2010 for another Haiti fundraiser to supports victims of the recent earthquake.
