Campaign by: Ethan, Myra, Royce, Serafina, Shannon, Torrez and Victoria
WHO WE ARE
We are students who attend JEMS Character Academy and we are in Red Level. This year, we have been learning to grow in our empathy and compassion for people with physical disabilities in our community.
We hope you will enjoy our website, watch and learn our videos and grow in your compassion towards people who have physical disabilities!
The more we understand, the more we can be compassionate!

WHY WE CARE
People with physical disabilities are also people. Even though they might look different from what you or I may look like, they can do amazing things too.
We watched a video about people with physical disabilities doing amazing things like driving a car, playing the guitar, and playing sports.
We believe that people with physical disabilities can do anything. They may do things differently from you and me, but they have their own abilities too.
GROWING IN EMPATHY
Check out the activities we learnt in class to grow in our empathy and understanding towards tpeople with different types of physical disabilities!
COMPASSION IN ACTION:
We can show compassion by accepting them. Knowing that being different is okay. Saying hello to them and including them in what we are doing. Asking them if they want to join in or if they want help. People with physical disabilities are just like you and me.
There are different ways to show compassion and respect to someone with physical disabilities.
Check out our comics to learn more about different examples to be a compassionate individual!
COMPASSION IN ACTION: OUR INVENTIONS
After learning about how people with physical disabilities face both visible and invisible obstacles, we designed different inventions that may help them reduce or overcome such obstacles!
We had an amazing opportunity to interact with, learn from and ask our own questions to Ms. Magdalena who works in the charity we are fundraising for, The Society for the Relief of Disabled Children in Hong Kong.
From this memorable experience, we gained a deeper understanding of people with physical disabilities, their experiences and life goals, and thus deepen their empathy and grow in their compassion towards them in our community.
FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN: DONATING TO THE SOCIETY FOR THE RELIEF OF DISABLED CHILDREN
We want to raise $10,000 HKD to help families in Hong Kong who have children with physical disabilities.
We want to help SRDC help support those with physical impairment in our community know that being different is okay and that they can do anything.
