Wired Kids and Cyberangels Take a Stand Against Terrorism and help people everywhere to heal their wounds.
Children from around the world have been touched and affected by the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. They need a way of sharing what they are feeling and thinking with each other. They also need a way of starting the process of moving on…and feeling that they are contributing to the healing. To Join the E-Mail America Project email firstname.lastname@example.org
Now, together with our professionals, partners and supporters, WiredKids, Cyberangels and Epals are launching a special program to help the healing process for children from around the world.

Helping Schools in the WTC Area
There is a way we can constructively contribute to children and their teachers who have been displaced by the tragedy in New York. Riva Korashan, at the United Federation of Teachers, Teacher Center in New York, has requested help to supply three schools, two elementary schools and one K-8 school, involving 1000 students with the basics they need for everyday classroom activities. The schools have been closed and relocated. Teachers and children left everything behind when they evacuated to safety on Tuesday.
These educators and students need everything, book bags, pencils, paper, classroom books, paper, teacher supplies, classroom supplies, etc. Financial donations are welcome also.
Please send your donations to:
