Emily's Nebraska Little Giants Day/Week

In honor of celebrating our differences with our friends Omaha Storm Chasers πŸŒ€⚾and the five elementary Gretna Public SchoolsπŸ’š, we engaged in several activities in our community.  I enjoyed spreading awareness and educating the children of our community about kindness, our daughter Emily Koesters and our Little Giants Foundation❤ as Mrs. Nebraska USA Worldwide!πŸ’ƒ
I shared Understanding Dwarfism book "Not Too Big, Not Too Small...just right for me!" by our friends James Korpai and Darlene.  The Stormy mascot and friend, Becki also read and helped act out the books with the students.
One evening we attended a home HS basketball game and threw out LGF shirts. The middle schools helped educate about Emily and LGF, too. Emily's school, Gretna Middle School had activities all week and all of the students and staff wore PINK stickers with Emily's name on Friday. So cool. Emily even received an award.
Also, the staff who chose to participate in wearing jeans on Friday donated $5 each and chose our organization. They raised over $2,000 toward SIOD research!πŸ€—
I am super stoked to announce LGF will continue to TEAM UP with the Storm Chasers during the opening game of their season, April 5th! Specific details to come! ⚾πŸŒ€❤  #SIOD #believeinemily #gretnapublicschools #omahastormchasers #mrsusapageant
