“Do More” week, put on by E.A.T (Encouraging Altruism in Teens), was the week of March 28th to April 1st. The purpose of the week is to “Motivate others to help others and ‘be the change you want to see in the world’ as quoted by Ghandi,” stated Bridget Anderson, an E.A.T member. E.A.T president, Veronica Shedd, responded that “Since we’re living in such a privileged community, it’s best to take the opportunity to help our community and people around us…so we just want to promote that with our campaign.” Kaia Mikulka, a member of this leadership group, added “I think ‘Do More’ week is about stepping up to do one more thing for the community, for yourself, for your family, and for your friends.”


During the week E.A.T passed out wristbands during breaks and lunch. Throughout the week there were posters up in the 200 and 300 buildings that encouraged people to help out their community (pictures above). They also made a video that aired on Trident TV that had teachers and students encouraging viewers to “Do More” for others. On their Instagram, they posted flyers and links to different charitable things people could do/donate to.


As a part of “Do More” week Shedd suggests volunteering with local volunteer groups and emphasized the importance of students focusing on themselves and their mental health. Mikulka recommended that students show appreciation toward their parents, who have done so much for them since they were kids, and help them out a little more than usual. She also strongly recommended helping out Ukraine by donating money. There is a link to an organization that she has done research on in her Instagram bio (@_kaialynne) where students can donate money.


“As long as we empower people to help others and help themselves, our campaign is a success.” – Bridget Anderson ‘24
