REAL Heroes in our Community

Our children have the opportunity to collect for a various range of community organisations during their own time and at school.  These are some that we have been involved with this year.

July - KRAMA REAL CHALLENGE THANK YOU

kramaThank you to everyone who bought a Krama scarf or a friendship bracelet. The sales of the krama and friendship bracelets raised $233. A group of girls from Cashmere High also raised money for the charity Flame and wanted to pool their money with our girls' money. Together they have raised more than enough for Thyda, a child in Cambodia, to go to school for a whole year.

December - Bath Bombs for Avivabathbombthingymagiggy

I sold Bath Bombs for Aviva (formerly known as Christchurch Women’s Refuge). I went to Aviva last Thursday and gave them the giant cheque and leftover bath bombs.
They were stoked that I made $911, especially after they thought I said $111 on the phone!
I am really happy with how everything turned out and how much help and support I got. Thank you to everyone who support me and this good cause. From Livia.
