This year I am entering into a Read-a-thon put on by my school.  I am planning on reading 13 books by the end of the read-a-thon.  Showputian, Daisy’s cat, will be curled up next to me while I read. 

I have found lots of schools in Nicaragua that are not with proper supplies.  Kids do not have all the books they need. For example a school in Corn Islands has very few books.  The children write all their questions by hand instead of having text books to do it for them. Someone donated computers for the school. If I look back on it now it helps me know that donations can make a difference. 

My school is  raising money for:

  • Curriculum development in order to provide online courses to students around the world that do not have access to quality online curriculum.
  • A school and medical clinic in Kenya through Building Beyond Borders.
  • Missionary students who need bursaries to attend HCOS when they don’t qualify for funding as BC residents.


I have a goal of : 350$

Please help me reach my goal.  The main idea for me is to help build the school in Kenya.
