I have decided that this summer I am going to be doing an online fundraiser for Free The Children, which is a charity that empowers youth in the developed world and gives aid and support to children and families in the developing world. My goal is to raise $1500.00.
Here is a video about Free The Children:
I am extremely passionate about girls’ rights so I am going to be donating the money I raise to the Kisaruni All Girls Secondary School that Free The Children built. I believe that every child deserves an education, so that is why I want to support this school that is giving girls in Kenya a chance to make a better life for themselves and communities. By donating you will be providing support for things like library books, text books and school supplies, art and sports supplies, health and environmental clubs, and school expansion (including new classrooms and dorm space.)
Here is a video of Joe Jonas visiting Kisaruni:
The cool thing is that this is not a normal fundraiser-EVERYONE who donates will be sent a homemade, one-of-a-kind-card made by me. If you have donated, then you can email me your address at email@example.com and I will send you a card that you can give as a gift to a family member or a friend. Please note that your card will not look exactly like the one below because every card is unique. Plus, if you donate $50.00 or more you will be sent a homemade necklace that has a girls’ rights pendant.
To donate you can go to: http://my.e2rm.com/PersonalPage.aspx?registrationID=2497743&langPref=en-CA&Referrer=http%3a%2f%2fwww.freethechildren.com%2fdonate%2fwaystogive.php%3ftype%3dfundraising%26width%3d%26height%3d405 Once you are on the website you can click “Sponsor Me” and then you can type in your information. After you have done that you can send me your address at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you a card and possibly a necklace depending on the amount you donate.
Together, we can make sure all girls can go to school!
Thanks for joining me on my journey to change the world!
