I had planned to write something longer yesterday, but I spent the whole day knee deep in calendars and event websites. For the past several years I have intended to give them parents a letter at the beginning of the new year that laid out all of the important dates and costs for the entire year. This year I was determined to actually make that happen. I spent 4 hours yesterday just digging up dates for things that are happening as far out as June and July and trying to come up with costs for them.
This year we are doing a modified version of the 30 hour famine that I am ingeniously calling the 24 hour famine. We are raising money for Lifewater International. For the past year now I have been burdened for Africa and their need for clean water. This will help raise awareness and should help raise some money as well. Part of this 24 hours we will be doing a Food Drive and Ebay Scavenger hunt where students will go and collect food for a local food bank and collect items that can be auctioned on Ebay with the proceeds going to Lifewater. It should be a fun time.
