What could we raise collectively for 'clean water' if we all pulled together for just one holiday period?

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by debbiehep, Jan 6, 2012.

  1. If we managed to notify all the schools in England about raising money for 'clean water' for a specific holiday period, what could we raise?
    Is this doable?
    Any suggestions?
    Was it inky who described doing this one Christmas instead of spending money on Christmas cards/presents?
    What if we galvanised all the schools - and all the parents of the schools?
    What could we achieve?

    Good idea
    Easter 2012
    I will run as Easter Egg tombola with Fair Trade chocolate.
    Get it across to Gove. The latest initiative.
     
  4. That would be fantastic - thank you for that support.
    Would anyone else be prepared to consult with their colleagues and the parents at their schools/settings to support the 'clean water' charities at Easter?

    It's a good idea Debbie, but we plan in September which charities we are going to support for the school year. Maybe next year we could join you. Good luck.

    Yes, we have done it every year for about 10 years now using either Oxfam Unwrapped or ActionAid. This year we paid for a toilet to be built (in Haiti according to the card) and clean water for 20 people.

    we do the same inkyp we put a box in the staff room and people can contribute what they would normally spend on cards.
    We also do an annual "Send a Cow" fundraiser in the FSU
    This year KS1 are going to buy an African Garden

    We used CAFOD and instead of spending money on Christmas cards, the children brought in money for various different gifts to be used overseas.
