Marie's Drawings

The following example is fictional, but a realistic example of a possible action for change.

Marie works as part of the cleaning team in a hospital in Lyon, France. Marie’s 7-year-old daughter loves to draw and after following the maac program in her hospital, Marie came up with the idea of collecting drawings from her daughter’s classroom to distribute to the people’s rooms she cleans. It gives Marie a sense of connection to the patients, and a small boost of satisfaction knowing they add a touch of brightness to their hospital stay. Marie’s daughter’s classmates now draw with a pro-social goal in mind, learning lessons in empathy and altruism while doing something they enjoy.
