Over the course of the past few weeks we have been collecting pennies for the Free the Children:  We Create Change campaign.  Congratulations to Mrs. MacDonald’s class for filling their penny bag first!  But we won’t stop there…each class is encouraged to continue to fill their bags to the fill line.  Every bag filled equals $25 and will provide clean water to one person in a developing country.  80 percent of illnesses in these countries are caused by poor water and sanitation.  So far we have 5 bags filled!  Great job St. Boniface we are really making a difference! 

Our next clean water initiative is the sale of the Water Rafiki Friend Chain.  These beautiful blue strands of beads are handmade with love by the Maasai mamas of Kenya, which helps provide the mamas with an all-important income.  Proceeds from the $10 Water Rafiki support Free The Children’s year-long Water Initiative, which aims to provide permanent access to clean water for 100,000 people around the world. By wearing the chain—and getting all your friends and family to wear one too—you can help Free The Children reach its goal.  Keep posted for updates in this new initiative!
