Faith4Kidz on Mission to Reawaken Faith in God and Integrity to Decrease Retaliation Responses.

Burton, OH (PRWEB) April 05, 2013

Faith4Kidz, a newly formed non-profit organization, is embarking on a fundraising mission to help children react to stress more positively. The violence and emotions from the Chardon, OH school shooting, in addition to the bullying and retaliation that take place across the nation daily need to be addressed. The campaign's initial goal of $500,000 in donations across the country will be used to network and obtain accessibility to resources for exercise of their minds, body and spirit. Educating children to use these tools to respond to the challenges they face and help children react positively. The initial focus will be on children in the Chardon areas with the goals expanding as donations are available.

Faith4Kidz founder, Valerie Timmons, is an RN with 22 years in nursing and business and mother of four. Also a member of the Berkshire Local School Board, a district adjacent to Chardon, Valerie has seen the impact financially and administratively on the children and school. Valerie learned the importance of her faith in God and following a healthy program to deal with stress after her own personal experiences and decided to use that experience to help others. Faith4Kidz promotes positive responses to stress thru faith in God and practice of theory of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Need. Valerie prayed each day and stressful moments began to change in her life. These items need to be shared and developed in each child to help them deal with daily challenges and stand for what they believe in without fear.

Superintendent Joe Bergant of Chardon Local School District indicated that “…even though we had resources in place to help the students, anything else that can be done to increase movement of the students in the classroom would be beneficial.” He also indicated that due to funding cuts and other legislation, there is a movement to remove gym and from the curriculum. Students need the physical activity to help them focus as Superintendent Bergant indicated. Dietary education is also important as he indicated and federally has been mandated, however, funding is an issue. The two year anniversary of the shooting is February 27, 2013. He also spoke of the programs they had in place for cognitive therapy for students after the shooting, summarizing,”…if you don’t have funding, you need to get creative and find the resources.” Superintendent Doug DeLong, of Berkshire Local Schools, an adjacent district also indicated that additional education on nutrition and the importance of exercise would be welcomed as the curriculum only touches on it. Funding is an issue for additional resources to not only educate but also allow the children to access the resources such as YMCA’s or gymnastics, however financial hardships defer many.
