Print This Adorable Worksheet We Mailed To LA Kids
These are not typical times, so we did something we don’t typically do — we sent mail to a bunch of children.
Kids need activities and parents need critical information (and five minutes of quiet), so we teamed up with graphic designer Rosten Woo to create something that could serve all of those purposes.
The motivation behind the mailing is simple: Not everyone in Los Angeles has easy or consistent access to the internet.
A quarter of all households with school-aged kids in L.A. County do not have access to personal computers and fixed broadband internet.
The result is a resource guide that more than 12,600 families can use as a roadmap for financial help, food assistance and other types of aid. It's also an activity sheet for kids.

This project is one way we're rethinking our education coverage to serve parents, caregivers and educators where they are.
