My son's school raised over $1,300 to help Haiti last week, simply by letting the kids pay $1 to wear a hat in school last Friday. A letter was sent home earlier in the week telling us that the money would be given to The Red Cross' Haiti relief effort. When I picked Nathan up from school on Hat Day, there was a teacher in the parking lot wearing a very CRAZY hat, who was also taking more donations. How cool is that? Way to go Heritage!
I like ideas that lead to so much fun too.
I love that his school is so focused on giving to others. We just got another fundraiser today that is just as simple. Saving pennies for Luekemia research. I think it’s called “Pennies for Pasta.” The class who saves the most change gets a lunch party provided by the Olive Garden.
