James' Emergency Toybox | $345.29 | 7th grader Alyssa designed and assembled “toyboxes” in honor of her 2-year-old cousin who underwent successful treatment for a brain tumor in June 2015. Each toybox contains phone chargers and a charging station to be placed in hospital waiting rooms. She delivered her first 3 boxes to Tufts Medical Center, in November, and is planning to make more in the coming weeks for other hospitals.

Want to join? | $349.20 | 4th grader Kelsey wanted to help spread the word about her excellent but small after-school tutoring program in one of the projects in Lawrence, MA, so she designed a t-shirt that will be given to 50 participants to wear and increase visibility.

Pop-up Project: Cotting School | $212.29 | Five returning 8th grade participants were invited to lead face-painting and craft activities at the Cotting School’s (specialized school in Lexington, MA for students with severe disabilities) annual Chili Cook-off. They also toured the school and learned about the students’ challenges and adaptive technologies and devices used.
