Our class is collecting coins for Haiti. Please encourage your child to do extra chores, walk the neighbor's dog, etc. to make a little extra money for this cause. I really would like this to be a student driven activity and for them to take ownership and responsibility for collecting money. Thank you so much for your support in this effort!
So far, the students have raised $305.00!! Wow! The students also made a goal of $500.00 by the end of February. Good Luck!
Help us raise money for Mercy Corps — and change lives in some of the world's toughest places!
Mercy Corps is a team of 3,700 professionals helping turn crisis into opportunity for millions around the world. Their philosophy is simple: No one is more motivated or better equipped to create change than the person whose life and future is at stake. They see their role as helping catalyze the change that communities want to see.
Your donations contribute to efforts like helping stock school libraries in Zimbabwe ... training women's self-help groups in the Central African Republic ... teaching rice farmers in Sri Lanka and Indonesia growing techniques that are both more productive and better for the environment ... and supporting the land rights of indigenous farmers in Guatemala.
You can support efforts like these — and help me meet my personal fundraising target — by making a gift on this page.
