Recently, we have kicked into high gear with our newest fundraiser. We wanted to get younger students excited, and interested in helping us with our goal. This usually only comes when there is a reward involved. In this case we used a class party for the winner. What was our fundraiser you may be asking? We used a jar of Skittles in the game of guessing. Any students would have the opportunity to come in and make an estimated guess on how many were in the jar. This was something we always thought was fun as younger kids, so we thought this would be a good idea. We were right. The fundraiser was a success in helping is lean closer to our goal. We hope that the students feel like they had part in our success with sending Neema to school, as if it weren't for their motivation to get the class party, we wouldn't be where we are today. We are looking forward to planning the next event, and hope that it is just as successful as previous events. We are very thankful to those who enjoy helping us every year!
