When students step up to help one another, it’s a win-win. School fundraising for KidsCan doesn’t just generate crucial funds for the one in 6 Kiwi kids living in poverty; it reminds our rangatahi that they have the power to create positive change.
And if you are going to fundraise, why not take a leaf out of Whanganui Collegiate’s book and make a week of it? The school’s Godwin House ran a series of events over a week in late March and raised over $5,000 for our children in need.
The packed fundraising schedule included Carwash Wednesday, a raffle (with families both donating items and buying tickets), sales of yummy home baking, a daily barbecue, a school movie night and much more. Godwin House ran and organised the week, but it was a solid collective effort, with the whole school and community getting behind the cause. Result – thousands of dollars raised to ensure kids in schools and preschools nationwide are warm, fed and ready to learn.
We’re so stoked with this kind of support – and it’s extra-special when it’s kids helping kids.
You can choose to fundraise for KidsCan through your school in any way you like – the sky really is the limit. We’ve created a handy guide to get you started; you can download it here. Or check out our dedicated school fundraising page www.kidssupportingkids.raisely.com.
