School and Community Outreach
Posted on Apr 21, 2014
To date, Cyndi and Marshall have been invited to speak at more than 250 schools and events, resulting in Marshall already meeting over 80,000 new friends. But, he is only one dog and cannot be everywhere! Therefore, a Character Education Curriculum has been designed to empower high school juniors and seniors to serve as peer-to-peer mentors; they share Marshall’s 5 Cornerstones—Empathy, Strength, Courage, Kindness, Forgiveness—with middle and elementary school classrooms.
“Cyndi’s presentation with Marshall the Miracle Dog is an inspirational and
life changing experience for all ages. The expertise at presenting their message
to promote compassion and empathy in our world will touch the heart
of every member of the audience. So many children and adults know what’s
right, but can’t get out of the gate to truly do what’s right until their own heart
leads them to do so. After being a part of the audience, all will feel urgency
and responsibility to step up and do something to make life better for others.”
– Amy Richards, Character Educator, Lindbergh School District
Marshall was invited to be the “face” of the Humane Society Annual Campaign that ran from November 2013 through January 2014, with media outreach on four billboards on the major highways in St. Louis City and County, along with commercials airing on ESPN, Animal Planet, Nat Geo, and ABC Family.
