Talk about some heartwarming news that has now reached Bert, Ernie, Cookie Monster, Grover, Big Bird, Oscar, and every other Muppet who lives on Sesame Street!
The PBS educational program for children known as Sesame Street has just received an astounding award from the MacArthur Foundation, which is known for providing large sums of money for people who are trying to make the world to do a better place.
The foundation just gave Sesame Street one hundred million dollars so the show can mount a humanitarian response to children who have been displaced by the acts of war that have been levied against their societies in the Middle East.
The show has the aim of bringing education to these kids because otherwise, they might not necessarily get the opportunity to experience a normal education like other kids get, simply because of the effects that war has had on these children.
Not only will the provided methods of learning be through digital and electronic mediums like the Internet and television, but there will also be funds for Sesame Street and the people behind it to work with the kids in person, as part of the great mission of education that is soon to be underway.
