This week our main purpose was to focus on two things. First of all we worked on coming up with a plan to figure out what we want to use the money we are raising for. After a very effective group discussion, we decided on making blessing bags. There are great homeless shelters in our area providing the homeless with the food they need but what about the necessities that they need to use everyday? When you think about someone who is homeless, most likely the first thought that crosses your mind is that they need food. While this is indeed true, that is definitely not all they need! They are people just like us who need lots of the same items that we use each and every day. Just some of them being; toothpaste, toothbrushes, mints, socks, shampoo, chapstick, combs, and bandages.
Secondly, we worked on adding ideas to our list of fundraising ideas. I mean with all these blessing bags we plan to make, we will sure need some money to help! Lucky for us fundraising can be extremely fun! Well... that is unless you´re the leaders of our group who we plan to hold an event where students can pay to ¨torture¨ them. We will have different ideas such as dying their hair or dressing up as a clown for the day. Then, anyone who wants to participate will be able to pay $1 to vote on their favorite form of ¨torture.¨
Don´t forget to come back next week to see how our blessing bags turn out!
P.S. Our GoFundMe is doing great! We are already at $315... so keep those donations coming because they are really helping!
