10 x 100=1000 for orphans

Yesterday we began our challenge to raise $5000 for orphans. Marcel and Mya are SUPER excited to be apart of it and have decided that they can be responsible for raising $1000 all by themselves. We’re hopeful to use this money for families within Roosevelt who want to adopt internationally.

We came up with the idea of getting 10 of their friends to join them in raising money for orphans. They have several ideas to help each of their friends raise $100. We ordered bracelets to sell, they are going to have a “wash your neighbor’s windows” day, and an “orphan meal.” All the details about that will be coming up soon. In the meantime, if you’re kids would be interested in joining our group of 10, contact me. We will be having a party in a few weeks to kick things off (a sibling group within your home can all work together to raise $100).
