Students Raise Money For Guatemalan Children March 10, 2010
3/10/10 - A local school is once again reaching across borders by reaching out to help less fortunate children in other parts of the world. Students at Light of the World Academy in Pinckney are raising money to sponsor two kids in Guatemala. The school is working with a charity called Mayan Families which helps provide the essentials Guatemalan children need to attend school, such as shoes, supplies, backpacks and books. School director Kathy Moorehouse tells WHMI the students are very excited about the project and have already raised over $700 by doing jobs around the school and at home. Moorehouse says the idea for the project came from one of her students, a first grader named Charlie who was adopted from Guatemala. Last year Light of the World Academy raised money for the Pennies for Peace program to help build schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and their efforts jumped unexpectedly into the national spotlight when someone stole their donation jar full of pennies. For more information or to make a donation, contact Light of the World Academy at 734-878-3301 .(MS)
Our soccer uniform collection was highlighted in today’s Lowell Sun newspaper. I think it may have made the front page, but here’s the link to the online version. I was delighted that the reporter honored my only request, which was to include the MF web address. Fingers crossed that this story nets some new supporters.
Cheers, Beth from Boston
