FUNdraising Friday Coming Up!
Hi there! We are six students from Harakeke Hub who have been working on helping out to increase joy in our local community or in the wider world. FUNdraising Friday is happening this Friday to help us raise some money in a FUN way!
In the fundraising week (week 10) Aimee and Phoebe are raising money for Women’s Refuge. Women’s Refuge is a Wellington-based refuge that helps women who have run away from an abusive husband/boyfriend. Women’s Refuge work very closely with the police so if someone is being abusive to their partner/anyone they could go to jail. We are doing this because we think it is wrong to be abusive to your partners, especially when there is death involved.
Nirvanah and Emily are raising money for a charity in Africa called Aurelia’s Orphanage. This orphanage has a blog which has a page of goals that they want achieved. They are wanting money to make their orphanage a better place for the kids there. They want to help the orphanage and let the children live a better life.
Jane and Kimberley are raising money for Maui dolphins/WWF. We’re doing this disquiry so they can make people/Maui dolphins more joyful. We are also doing this disquiry because then the WWF people will smile to see that others care about maui dolphins as well.
These three groups are going to do a combined fundraiser on Friday week 10. We are going to do a Pyjama / Odd Shoe / Bake Sale day. Bring a gold coin donation (or more!) and come along dressed up or willing to eat treats to help out. It may even make you and others smile, which will increase our joy!
Also, don't forget our learning celebration at 1:45pm in Amesbury Hall. See you there!
