So far, we have raised $40 out of our $1000 goal for the fall campaign. The money will go to building a shelter for the Tran family in Vietnam, who currently lives in a crude shack made from rubbish. If you are interested in learning more or donating, please check out our campaign webpage.
The high school interns are all currently very involved with the program. We are working on social media outreach, bottle cap designs for Transparent Fish Fund, getting Facebook likes for our pages, and asking for donations. Keep up the great work, interns!
One of our interns, Angie Nguyen, is participating in Project Spare Change, a project which calls on its participants to donate the change they pick up to charity. Although this project may sound slightly inconsequential at first (you may think, “They will need a lot of pennies to make a difference”), it is something we can all do and our joined efforts will be able to change someone’s life for the better. If everyone in the United States donated a penny to charity, the charity will raise approximately $3.2 million! That is enough to build homes for over three thousand families in a similar condition as the Tran family, families dwelling in shacks made out of rubbish that do little to protect them against the elements.
Thank you for checking out our progress and be sure to check back for our November update!
