Many children around the world go to school hungry, including children in Kelowna. This makes learning difficult and often impacts educational outcomes and life potential. This Friday, Watson Road Elementary School's WE Club are holding a cake pop fundraiser to raise funds for Food For Thought Kelowna Breakfast Society, and a Hope For The Nations feeding program in Kenya.
The children are learning to be problem solvers by leading in this awareness and fundraiser campaign. The WE club are teaching in the classrooms, talking about what food security is. They are inspiring solidarity, compassion, responsibility, equality, and co-operation.
They are learning that we are all in this together, and what it means to value, care for, defend, and help others. Essentialy what it means to be a global citizen.
Each student will receive a cake pop. If a child draws a ‘winning cake pop’, he or she will be awarded a fun prize that has been kindly donated by community sponsors.
The goal is to raise $2,000, which would buy 660 breakfasts for the Hope For The Nations Kenya Feeding Program, and food for 1,500 children for two weeks here in Kelowna. We also want to encourage students to become responsible and involved citizens who have the confidence to make positive contributions in their world.
