WE Schools Global Action Fundraiser

posted May 5, 2016, 5:14 PM by KJH PTSA Communications   [ updated May 6, 2016, 5:05 PM ]
May 16-20th 

Our global action fundraiser is around the development pillar of "Alternative Income" in the 3rd world. Providing two goats to a family living on less than $2 a day provides immediate food security from milk and cheese. The goats are free to care for, as they forage on native plants. Eventually, goats from the growing herd can be sold to provide alternative income for the family. A goat in India costs $50. The leadership class challenges each 2nd period class to raise enough money to buy a goat for an impoverished family.

Students: Money will be collected at Colt Time and both lunches, May 16-20

Parents: Please feel free, as you are able, to support us with a larger donation. A charitable donation receipt can be arranged for your gift to be tax deductible. Checks can be made out to KJH, but ALL money will be given to the Free the Children organization.
