At the end of August 2012 the Parents and Friends Committee of the Sacred Heart School of Carpi takes it's first steps. On September 5th, Alessandro, a Genoese friend who works in Milan, created the first leaflet with the "brick of the Sacred Heart", one of the recurring symbols in all the initiatives of the following months ...
With the help of parents, students, teachers and all school staff and many friends various initiatives were carried out (and many others are still being considered!) involving hundreds of people and allowing us to present our school in Italy and abroad and receiving solidarity from so many people.
Everyone’s effort has been rewarded beyond all expectations and this is a big boost for us to continue our efforts to give back to our children a safer and better reality!
Sport day in Cuneo for Sacro Cuore

Sports Exhibition and Italian Marathon
12-14 October 2012 - Carpi Stadium. Our first stand!
With the help of a friend, who was born in Carpi, we were granted a large space inside the stadium. The news of this possibility, however, arrived at the very last moment. Several dads and mums rushed to help and - working day and night - they made sure that everything was ready for the opening of the event! During the following three days many alternated at the stand and between several good laughs and also a little embarrassment we were able to collect more than 2,000 euro of donations!

After an incredible race against time that involved also some grandparents, 1000 pajamas finally arrive come from Bangladesh; they have been made in time record thanks to the commitment and generosity of special friends!
We immediately tried to organize everything in order that all the children who wanted to receive their pajamas, were able to in time for Christmas. "The happy machine” of the stands is put in motion again and, defying even the bitter winter cold, we proposed the pajamas were put on sale both in Carpi (in particular at the Borgogioioso mall and at the local hospital) as well as at Modena. In a few days the first 500 pajamas reached as many children!
hobbyist Association “Italy Scrapbooking”
Solidarity has no territorial borders: the hobbyist Association “Italy Scrapbooking”, scattered everywhere in our peninsula, took to heart our Sacred Heart School and undertook to carry out and send (all at their own expense!) a mountain of small masterpieces of creativity and good taste. Cards, bookmarks, picture frames, and other objects began to arrive from everywhere and we started to immediately propose them on our stand. All of these dear friends working in anonymity contributed, and allowed us to see their creations literally flying off the shelves! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
