Amazing Young Fundraisers
Western Academy, Beijing, China
The following note is from three girls who raised $800 to help the vaquita.
We first found out about the vaquitas on the Internet. So for our fifth grade project at the Western Academy of Beijing we decided to raise money for the vaquitas because there are so few of them. To raise money we held three bake sales.
Two of them were at our school and one of them was in our neighborhood. We raised a total of 5000 RMB ($800 USD). We hope our donation will help keep the vaquitas from becoming extinct!
American International School, Vienna, Austria
Elementary students at the American International School Vienna participate in the ES Earth Week Fun Run every year. This year, they choose to donate the proceeds to two organizations, including Save the Whales. Students found sponsors for each lap they ran and were very dedicated to saving the whales and protecting wildlife in Europe. They ran over 7000 laps combined and raised over 6800 Euros! 3500 Euros will go to protect vaquitas and help outreach programs in schools around the US through Save the Whales.
The students from both schools were moved by the plight of the vaquita. For more information on vaquita.
Thank you for signing up for our Eletters and helping us help marine mammals.
We do not share our email lists with other organizations.
