Leadership Fundraising at Pitt River

January 29, 2015

This year Leadership will be running several campaigns to raise money for an alternative income project in Kenya. We Create Change is a competitive coin drive between classes happening Feb 3-6, followed by a bake sale Feb 10-13. In April, we will host We Are Silent (1/2 day vow of silence) where students are pledged to take a silent stand for kids around the world who don’t have a voice to stand up for their basic human rights. We will break the silence in the afternoon with We Party: students choose between attending a dance or one of the various stations set up around the school. The fundraising from these events will be to buy goats ($50 each) through Free the Children. A goat helps a family support themselves and break the cycle of poverty by providing milk to decrease malnutrition and by selling it to make money so they can send their kids to school. 15% of our fundraising will help one of our students, Sara Parker, go to Kenya this summer for 3 weeks to get her hands dirty and live the impact we try to make through our fundraisers. She will see the struggles firsthand and actively help out a community in need while she's there. If you would like to support Sara directly, here is the link
