Adopt a School to Help in the Aftermath of the Hurricanes!

The media coverage of Hurricane Harvey and Irma has been gut-wrenching! Do you want to help? Do you want to reach out and don’t know what to do? We are going to connect school counselors across the country with school counselors from impacted schools. Get students and staff from your school to sign a big poster to send to that school. Find out what supplies they need and sponsor a supplies drive to send to them. Have everyone in your school write a personal note to each person in the impacted school. We have all seen holiday giving trees where names of needy students are put on a tree with items they need – basketball player’s shoes have been destroyed, warm coats for kids, blankets for a family, teacher’s laptop was destroyed, etc. Then your school can sponsor individuals and send the replacement gifts to encourage those impacted during this time. If your school wants to help, have your school counselor fill out their name and information in the form below or on the “Welcome Page” and we will get information to him/her. Thanks for caring and providing strength and encouragement to those impacted by the Hurricanes! Questions, contact Sandy Austin at or leave a comment below.

12-12-12 for 2013?

BIONIC Helping Up We heard some exciting things from schools that participated in 12-12-12 and the difference they made in their schools and communities by reaching out to 12 people in 12 hours. (Look under the “12-12-12 Campaign” tab for more information.) We are now making plans for a similar day to 12-12-12 in 2013 – we are still determining which day we will have it since there is no 13-13-13. We will let you know our plans soon.

  1. If you had 12-12-12 activities at your school this year, let us know what you did and any highlights from the day?
  2. What are your thoughts about activities at your school for that day – things you want to change or add for next year?
  3. Or tell us how we can help you plan for next year’s activities.
  4. Or do you have ideas to make a greater worldwide impact with all the BIONIC schools across the globe next year.
