We are a fourth grade class in Minnesota. We are studying water and the distribution and quality of it around the world. We would like to participate to help those around us and make a connection to what we have learned. We want to spread awareness for the water crisis.
We want to participate because this will be the 6th year that we will be contributing to a project to bring clean water to South Sudan. Our 6th graders participate in a Trimester 1 theme of "Water - a Global Commodity" and read the book "Long Walk to Water".
This is our third year participating in H2O for Life. We learned quite a bit about the water crisis around the world, as well as the importance of helping communities around the world. This is a great service learning project.
In memory of Kathleen, her extended family is supporting Lugango Primary School in Kenya. Kathleen Lang passed away at the age of 88 years young. She will be remembered for her love of family- 7 children-and her impact on the Faribault, MN community. She also provided amazing desserts, chicken noodle soup and peanut butter crackers! She was a beautiful woman both inside and out. Her legacy will live on through all that were touched by her.
The third grade class at King of Grace has participated in H2O projects since 2013. After viewing some of the videos on the H2O site, it's impossible not to want to help some of these children who are in need of what we often take for granted, water! In the past we have raised funds by running a candy store, selling ice cream, and participation in a, "Walk for Water". Because of the current school closure, due to the Pandemic, none of these opportunities to raise funds are possible. Instead, we will have a virtual walk for water, and ask parents and friends to donate online to this worthy cause. With this Pandemic we are seeing an even greater connection between clean water and good health.
First of all, I'd like to thank you very much for putting the time and effort in to visiting our schools fundraising page, here you'll be able to see our progress over the year as well as find more information about the school we are sponsoring along with many other projects! This project is a great way to measurably impact the lives of over 500 people. Our community has been blessed with an abundance of luxuries and if we can put even a fraction of what we have towards serving others through H2O For Life, we can literally save hundreds of lives. The Faith Clubs at Lakeville South have decided to bring H2O For Life into our school and local community in an effort to serve others as Disciples in Christ. This project is a great first step towards eliminating the huge water crisis we have on Earth today.
While being educated at the recent H2O for Life Water Ball it made us cringe to think of how many thousands of gallons of WATER have recently been wasted during this past year's Ice Bucket Challenge. Although awareness and countless dollars were raised, it does not have to be that difficult, that theatrical, and most of all not that uncomfortable. AND we won't be wasting precious water! In support of H2O for Life's tireless efforts and legacy, and in memory of Wallace Fleming, founder of this family I now challenge ALL of the extended family members of the Malone, Quinlan and Lang clans (and all of the Flemings) who could not attend the Water Ball to commit to take on and complete an amazing Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Education project in South Africa. We can take action that is simple- donating funds- and kids at Gwilgwili Primary School in South Africa will receive access to clean water, toilets and handwashing stations. As student speakers pointed out, every penny makes a difference. Your donation, no matter how big or small will get this project done! Let's help change the world.
We are a high school of all immigrant and refugee learners. We want to raise money to help those in need in a school in another part of the world, just like we were helped once.
Lincoln Center Student Ambassadors are committed to taking local and global action to break the cycle of poverty and want to help make the world a better place. Our student leaders have been researching the water crisis and are passionate about making a difference.
