As children, families, and the providers who support them continue to adjust to the changes and challenges stemming from the global pandemic, Sesame Workshop, in collaboration with AT&T and Walgreens, is expanding its Caring for Each Other initiative.
New resources help families face current challenges like missing friends and feeling worried, while also giving children ways to celebrate the helpers in their neighborhoods, from pharmacists to mail carriers to grocery store employees.
You can find these resources on the initiative’s landing page, SesameStreet.org/caring, and on the Health Emergencies topic page on Sesame Street in Communities.
In the coming weeks, resources for children of frontline workers and new professional development tools for community providers like healthcare providers, social workers, and educators will roll out on an ongoing basis. And, as people in communities everywhere begin to transition into the next phases of the crisis, Caring for Each Other will expand to address evolving challenges, as part of Sesame Workshop’s commitment to supporting families for the duration of this crisis and beyond.
Remember that you can also be a part of this effort to support families by liking, sharing, and retweeting our Sesame Street in Communities social posts. We’ve even created a social media toolkit for you! Find graphics to share to say thank you to heroes and neighborhood helpers along with images from our new everyday challenge animations! Finally, share how you’re making the best of a tough situation using #CaringForEachOther.
Our mission to help kids everywhere grow smarter, stronger, and kinder remains and we are committed to helping families navigate through this crisis, as long as it continues. Now, more than ever, let’s work together to extend the Sesame spirit – particularly, strength and kindness – to the kids in our lives and each other.
Stay safe and be well,
The Sesame Street in Communities Team
