Even 2nd graders can raise $7,500

Watch this amazing story of how a class of 2nd graders at The Haverford School raised money for charity: water. If they can do it, you can do it. (So do it! Give here.)

 

How they did it:

  1. Videos. Teachers showed a six-part learning series of videos in class, starting with a charity: water video.
  2. Crafts. Kids made 3D posters to visualize the water crisis and Walk for Water T-shirts and key chains in art class.
  3. Online research. Kids read blogs and other online materials from charity: water and the Peace Corps on water availability.
  4. Cultural dance event. The school hosted an African folklore dance event with local performers and drummers.
  5. Facts + stats. Kids learned facts about the water crisis and conservation; they presented book reports on African countries.
  6. Looping in parents. Teachers involved parents from the start and encouraged further learning and discussion about water at home.
  7. Walk for Water. The grand finale: The kids walked around their school’s track to raise money for a water project. Teachers then did follow-up the day after the walk, asking students to write how they felt to walk and why it was important to them.

Almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean drinking water. Unsafe water and a lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of all diseases and kill more people than all forms of violence, including war.

We’re going to raise $50,000 and build wells in 10 villages.
