Our 5th and 6th graders did a project on the lack of clean water around the globe. They unearthed many surprising details. We decided during Catholic Schools Week this year to host a penny war for water. Classrooms will compete against each other to raise money for this project. Pennies and bills count toward the positive for each classroom and silver and gold counts toward the negative. It is great fun, and a wonderful way to continue to raise awareness of the lack of clean water for many children around the world.
We will take donations too!
Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?
Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!
Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.
