who took action, raised money and collected school supplies for Pine Ridge
Our "20k Summer Challenge" is underway and so far we have raised over $3,000 between our Razoo Fundraising Page and off-line donations! Our goal is to raise $20k by September to ensure that our exciting projects will have enough funding and we need YOUR help to spread the word.
Some of the projects we hope to fund, or more fully fund, include the following:
- We are LINKING Elementary School students (on and off the Reservation) through video, service, dialogue and friendship ~ forming friendships on and off the Reservation, both sides learning from each other (the first series of SKYPE dialogues is scheduled to start in the Fall of 2012);
- We are helping a Reservation school develop a music program (they have asked for recorders and electric guitars);
- We are filling wish lists of supplies, fun reading materials and Art materials to keep the children reading and creative;
- We will continue to make sure that children are properly attired to withstand the winter weather of the region (they need snow jackets and boots);
- We will continue to provide children with proper athletic shoes so they can participate in sports; and
- We are launching our First Annual writing competition for girls -- details coming soon!
