Call it new math.
If one pinwheel equates to $2,
and every $2 is donated toward the education of Syrian refugee children in Lebanon and Iraq,
how many "pinwheel makers" could 3 girls encourage to join the challenge?
|How many pinwheels do you think there are?|
|Joy and relief at a challenge well-surpassed.|
|Their initial goal was 1500 pinwheels, but they were determined|
to encourage more folks to jump on board.
|When all was said and done, the girls had collected 3534 pinwheels from|
classmates, staff members, and family members! Those are two proud
teachers in the center and on the left.
We are grateful to
create tremendous impact,
for both recipients and makers alike.Keep checking the Students Rebuild website for more challenges, and to view prior ones. They also include free educational resources to help you add depth and understanding to the experience.
Stay tuned for a guest post next week from the girl who spearheaded this effort. She was the "ringleader of wonderful things". And thank you again to Students Rebuild, the IRC, and the Bezos Foundation, as well as all the students at JMHS! Go, Jets!
