Kids Fundraiser



Here's a great fundraiser that we've started at my school. We've partnered with a company called TerraCycle, Inc.

When you go to their site, run your mouse over each picture and see the before and after effects. It's really cool to see what happens to all that we collect. It's amazing how they can turn our trash into something that we use everyday. The reason we like this fundraiser is because more than anything, it keeps our trash out of the landfill!

Check out the story of how TerraCycle began: TerraCycle Inc.

Our School's Fundraiser!



Week one - of Terracycle Fundraiser 10/24/08

This is Sebastian and me cleaning all of the juice packs. His brother Luca helped, but he had to leave before we took the picture.

Check out all of the juice packs the kids at our school have collected. Total count is 350 in just 4 days. Can you imagine how much we will have collected in a month?

Week Two of Terracycle Fundariaser - October 31



The second week we decided to take a scientific approach to counting the juice pouches.

Our fellow students donated the following:

Capri Sun 354 Minute Maid 15 Kool Aide 26 Others 04 Honest Kids 02

Giving us the Grand Total of 401!days

Week three of Terracycle Fundraiser - November 8

Our fellow students donated the following:

Capri Sun 335 Minute Maid 12 Kool Aide 25 Others 02 Honest Kids 02

Giving us the Grand Total of 376!

Not Collectable!

This is the trash that we found in the bag of juice packs. Notice the rotten apple and the sour yogurt. We are going to have to go in and remind everyone that the TRASH goes in the TRASH CAN!! YUCK!

Get Free Publicity for Your Favorite Charity!

Have you done a fundraiser for your school or church? How about your local Humane Society or shelter? Have you helped our soldiers stationed in another country? It's a great experience to raise money or supplies for the things that you really care about. Tell us about your favorite charity and how you were able to help. Let us know what you liked about it and what you didn't like about it. Whether it's selling candy, holding a bake sale, or having a carnival; we'd love to hear your stories. And if you include a picture we will post it to show off all that you have achieved.
